Author: Chetan Soni Publisher:HBB (Half Baked Beans) Genre: Self Help/Motivational
Dear readers, which one is the shortest book that you have read and it left a long-lasting impact on you?
While this review might be longer than the book, I promise you it is worth it. I want to share a thing or two about how I came across this book. There is a publishing house called HBB (Half Baked Beans), I got to know about this through a blogger friend. Their presence on Facebook made me easy for me to follow the regular updates. That’s where the name Chetan Soni came into existence for me.
About the Author
Mr. Chetan Soni is a man with many feathers in his cap. As his LinkedIn bio reads, he is a publisher, involved in book marketing, a Startup Enthusiast, and a Kindle Author. I knew a little about his journey but followed him on Instagram from where I was introduced to his podcast with the name “Life is Enjoy”. If you enjoy travelling and conversations from the heart, then don’t miss this.
My whole purpose of reading this e-book was to enjoy a well written “Sarcasm”. It is an art and I believe, there is a very thin line between being sarcastic or being rude. The difference between knowing the wit, portraying it well via writing or making readers uncomfortable, will require a person who holds the intellect of being sarcastic.
This is the first time that I finished reading a book within an hour. I was not sure what to expect when I read the title and maybe that’s why I picked it up. From the prologue till the last line, the theme of the book changes often yet the words flow in harmony.
My interest piqued by the prologue of the book itself. I am intrigued, sad, and perplexed all at once to know the connection between the author’s diary and the Pokharan nuclear test. (Dear author, this calls for another story for sure). Sarcasm is an art and this part of the world is slowly gearing up for this.
As I read through a few pages of the book (a few of these lines are going to be my social media status soon) I yearn for some more classic tales written in a dipped sauce of sarcasm. I am definitely trying that “write a letter” #conditionattached advice from the author, read the book and I am sure you would give it a try too.
No fancy words that require you to pull a dictionary from the shelf or no hooks that keep you longing for the next part of the story yet you feel at ease and read through it because at the back of your mind you know this Kabir and Sonia are a part of your world somewhere. (A short crisp love story). I have a feeling I would be one of the first ones to grab the book once this author decides to pen down another book. Read it and Loved it.
Calling it a book seemed weird at first because it had only a few pages to read (pardon my ignorance toward e-books with only a few pages) however since I have read this one, I got my hands on quite a few books on Kindle with as many as only 15 pages long. Do you think there is any page limit or word limit for a book to be called a book? #ramdomeweirdthoughts 🙂
If we weigh the pros and cons of reading this book the only con I can think of is that it leaves you, yearning to read more about what the author has to say.
