Book Review: I Also Slept with Rashmi Verma by Love Thon

‘I Also Slept with Rashmi Verma’ by Love Thon (pen name) is a slightly erotic book about an oomph college chick named Rashmi Verma who is famous for sleeping with many guys of the college. However, when it comes to the narrator – his luck is hard. Why? Not all girls that look easily available are meant for all. The narrator though comes into her acquaintance very soon, but when it comes to have her, he fails miserably. But why?

The major backdrop of the story is staged against some college campus. On one hand Rashmi is experimenting with other guys, from sturdy to romantic to bullheaded and so on. On the other hand, she presumes to be in love with the narrator, but their love does not reach bedroom, and this is causing major worry for the guy. Probably, the concurrent theme that takes over soon is about infatuation that normally happens when we are young or at college life.

The book is not so lengthy, but still has thirty one short chapters. And each chapter runs like a movie scene – critics may say the book is about adultery gossiping – however in our opinion we found it a funny account of a guy who shuttles between the charming threads of love, infatuation, and a few more feelings. The book, at times, may arouse you but it runs like a movie and is not so profoundly smeared with erotic scenes that we often find in Shobha De or some other writers books.

Yes, the title is little quirky, well the story makes for it. Without giving much, we can say that it can fit into your one-time-read book, especially when you watch less Bollywood stuff and think that some books can make that gap fill for you. The language of the book is easy and worth steering your imagination. The writer has a few more books to his name, however cannot disclose as he prefers using pen name for this particular book. If you are in often search of light erotic read, well then go nowhere and stick to it.

Story Summary: The Accidental Tourist by Bill Bryson

The Accidental Tourist by Bill Bryson is a short story that highlights the importance of having suave and elegant manners at the time of travelling. In this story, we see that the narrator almost flies over 100,000 miles every year because of his job’s nature. So, we can say that the narrator is an accidental tourist, though he doesn’t enjoy travelling but still he has to because of his job. However in his own words he says that he is sort of a confused man who often forgets the roads and gets into wrong alleys or gets trapped into self-locking doors. In this story, he takes us to some of his awry travel experiences where he did some crazy things, though unwittingly.
Most of his experiences are based around airports or inside the flights. On one instant, while flying to England from Boston with family for Christmas, he forcibly opened the zip of his bag, as a result it broke down and all the stuff littered on the ground. This made him embarrassed and the people around him.
One day in…
