My Review: 4 out of 5 stars
Aakash, Jai and Vivek are mostly usual in their ways, except for some. Struggling
with their own inner conflicts as well as the cruel world outside, they decide to
show the world their true potential. To make it big. But how?
They become the voice of the nation by starting up an online platform where
people can upload unabashed, unapologetic videos, venting out their angst
against people, politics, bosses, lovers, taboos, or just about anything. Even the
The platform spreads like wild fire. But when has fire doused without burning a
Confused Bastards is not just a witty, gritty, fast-paced journey of three friends,
it’s also an intolerant story for a tolerant country!
An interesting and necessary read for every person who has at one point or other felt like a confused bastard.
Book Cover: That is what intrigued me about this book in the first place. It is simple, yet appealing to the eyes. That human brain design reminds me of the sketches from It’s Kind of a Funny Story Brain Maps! Shows all the thoughts and idea we have.
Characters: Our three main confused Bastards (protagonists) are Aakash, Jai and Vivek. Although their nature is so different from each other, one thing links them all. They are all conflicted and best of friends. That shows in the way they talk to each other and know each other inside out.
Plot and Theme: It was brilliant. With the current entrepreneurial wave, this book describes the strength it takes to take that plunge, and how struggling it can be. I liked how we get the side-stories of personal lives of characters and it is not all about ihafa. (Nice name though) *silent laughter
The writing style is so natural and you can easily tell that this book is for the youth. The same old drinking, cursing, partying, worrying about careers and girls. This book was written cleverly. A focused aim with a whole lot of entertainment. I’m so impressed by the creativity: The Mahabharta Club, ihafa. This was a fast-paced enjoyable book.
