Book Review: Wrong Means Right End by Varsha Dixit
Title: Wrong Means Right End
Author: Varsha Dixit
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The second story of love and friendship in the 'Right Wrong Series' by Varsha Dixit is Wrong Means Right End.
As I was reading the Right Fit Wrong Shoe, I was wondering what Wrong Means Right End would be about. I hadn't read the blurb.
I had thought that had Sneha not been married, it could have been about her finding love.
Well, Sneha was married. Now she is not.
Ok, back to the beginning...
Wrong Means Right End is the story of Sneha, a happily divorced single mother, and Nikhil, who made a fleeting appearance in the previous book.
When the two meet for the first time in this book, it is not a good start for them. There are antagonism and awkwardness. The apparent dislike between the two, and the obvious attraction make for a perfect kick-off for a story of romance.
Nikhil is good looking and filthy rich, just as Aditya in Right Fit Wrong Shoe.
Sneha's best friend, Nandini had been united with the love of her life, Aditya in Right Fit Wrong Shoe.
She is here too, newly married, and battling her own share of problems.
The backdrop has shifted from Kanpur to Mumbai.
Oh, and there is Gayathri, the rich, spoiled girl to whom Aditya had been engaged previously. The fact that Gayathri is like family to Nikhil doesn't help matters.
Usually in such series, the couples from the previous books get a passing mention a couple of times. Not so in this one. Aditya and Nandini play an important role in the polot of this book. I do think though that even if one has not read the previous book, this book will work well as a standalone story.
The banter between the two friends has escalated in this book.
One very interesting thread that runs through the book is the mixed-up abusive words that Sneha and Nandini use.
"Thanks to Advey's habit of picking up only cuss words from entire sentences, Sneha and Nandini's colourful lingo had down downgraded to age-appropriate but confusing material."
So there is hitch, loody bell, and a lot more.
Question to author: Why did Advey never pick up the word 'Kulta'?
I do think this word was used once too often.
Loved Mona's 'Trust me, I'm a psychologist', and then making statements that had me feeling *facepalm*.
Just as in Right Fit Wrong Shoe, the writing is informal and relaxed, with the slang-factor turned up a notch.
The titles of the chapters continue to charm - I googled you, Blow your horn, Earth to Mars...
With Nandini adjusting to a new lifestyle, Sneha finding her footing in a new city, Nikhil and Gayathri out for revenge for being jilted by Aditya, the story of Wrong Means Right End moves fast.
Sneha's hot-headed actions, her care-a-damn attitude towards consequences of her actions, Nikhil's understated yet potent reactions, all make for a good read.
