My View:

Very nice and interesting concept by the author, entrepreneurship is always my first preference for reading, you get always something new from it, and I know entrepreneurship is a lonely job, were you have to take tuff decisions to stay in the market.

Now about this beautiful novel, the harsh truth about new generations and their dilemma for their life is simply and also in comical way portrayed by the author. Also the current hot topic of our nation i.e. about entrepreneurship is effectively used by the author. I think if this book is properly promoted then it will be beneficial for today’s youth. The book is all about how a confused mind can lead you to success if properly channelized.

The writing style of the author is simple, lucid and fast, it can be completed in one go also each and every character is given importance and the length of the book is perfect. Their comes a time in everyone’s life were you have to take tough decision, here in this novel author has properly weaved that situation and provided perfect solution for Jai, vivek and akash, I loved to read when satu gives advice to all three which is best and inspirational part in entire book.

I highly recommend this novel, especially for today’s youth, and also for those who are planning for entrepreneurship. A good message by the author.

Some of the lines which are liked the most:

I just realized that despite all the hardwork, college was much easier than this corporate world. Page no 39.

I realized that the businessmen, specially the industrialists, contributed as much in the development of the country. Page no 167.

What I loved the most: The Mahabharata lounge concept and I totally appreciated new concept by the author to write on startup.

The only drawback of the book is its font size which is too small.  

**I received a free copy from Writersmelon in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Blurb:

What happens when three entrepreneurs initiate a start-up which shocks the nation?
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 founders themselves.

The platform spreads like wild fire. But when has fire doused without burning a few!
Confused Bastards is not just a witty, gritty, fast-paced journey of three friends, it’s also an intolerant story for a tolerant country!
