Anuja Chauhan ä Battle for Bittora TEXT
Battle for BittoraEr main opposition turns out to be Bittora ex royalZain Altaf Khan – an irritatingly idealistic though undeniably lustworthy individual with whom Jinni shares a complicated historyEnlivened by Chauhan’s characteristic brand of wicked humour and sexy romanticism this is a rollicking new tale of young Indi So this book was okay Just overwhelmingly OK There's a lot that's good and entertaining about it all to do with Chauhan's pacy vibrant writing her hold on Indian English which I absolutely love Nave vs Swayve perfect and all her Bollywood pop culture referencing All the things I enjoyed about The Zoya Factor as well The main protagonist is pretty likeable and most characters are also pretty well drawn and her thinly veiled allusions to politicians today is very wink wink entertaining Most of all her commentary on the over the top politics in the books is sharp and hilarious I found the parts about campaigning and the survey report especially most interestingThe book starts off pretty well Where it really lost me as a reader was with the Romance There just wasn't enough history to it to make me believe in Jinni and Zain's intense love hate relationship and the scenes with the two of them felt too manipulated? Plus all the great dramatic episodes in the middle the walking through fire the midnight rescue the revelation of her party member's betrayal and Zain's redemption just didn't have the bang or payoff they could have had in the story which had gotten pretty predictable by then anyway The impact of the grandmother's death though it understandably took up a portion of the story was also pretty mild overall All these elements were perfectly placed to work but somehow they just didn't I'd definitely read another book by Anuja Chauhan but I'm also resigned to not being fully satisfied with it just like with both 'The Zoya Factor' and this one
