  1.  There are so many characters and yet they are unforgettable and utterly unique 3 January, 2014 On
    The virgins by Siddharth Tripathi is an interesting story revolving around three youngsters in the holy city of Banaras.The title of the novel is catchy, attractive and so is the colorful cover image which gives strong assurance this will be an exciting and definitely different read than the other novels I have read.

    Towards the beginning of the novel, I was very unsure of what I was reading.This could not be due to my undying inquisitiveness to figure out what the story was about. If I have to pin point particularly where I struggled, what I didn’t like during the reading process, it would be the writing style . The pace of the novel was slow(which gradually improved), the more I read, the even more I faced problems while reading it. The language was simple but the characters were not that conspicuous enough, it was as if, they were basically meant to confuse one. I convinced myself eventually after crossing few more pages, I would definitely able to follow the story and I was right.

    What is the main issue one will face, when reading the novel in my opinion is that the innumerable flashbacks. In the meantime, this too will fade away. The book has three main protagonists but according to me, the supporting characters outtake them in terms of vagaries of emotions. Let it be Sir Joy who feels guilty and seeks for redemption for wrong doing, Sushma, Pinku’s love interest who marries off a stranger to not hurt her father’s feelings, and Mannu Garg who becomes deaf in one ear after the huge thrashing by Dubey’s people, Ghansi, Sarju , Chaccha and so on.

    The positive of the novel is the non-seriousness and the author’s optimistic approach. Sushma, whom we thought married a stranger under her father’s wish, turns out she agreed because she didn’t like Pinku’s fat nose. Likewise, every time we are introduced to a serious character, somehow they all turn out to be funny, gregarious, light-hearted, thrilling to the core. The mind voice of each of the character is also worth mentioning. Finally, these are the major things that keep “The virgins” never boring, likeable tale. Negative of the novel is the lack of clarity and suspense.
