First of all I would like to thank Manish for sending me his book for review. I loved the concept of how he had managed to learn English language in a fun manner. I finished reading the book in about one week. This book is targeted to Students and the ones who are preparing for competitive exams like CAT, MAT, XAT, GMAT etc.
The books normally targeted to these exams are pretty tough to study as they become a bit boring after some time. But Manish has done it and presented it in a form of a wonderful tale. I found one thing distracting in the book, the footnotes. They made my reading slower and distracted me from the tale somewhat but still it’s a great effort.
English, being a global language is essential nowadays. I have also studied from books targeted for the competitive exams and after few days of studying, I would put them impeccably in my rack and they remain still untouched :) This book has made the learning fun as well as keeping the reader engaged. He could have made a separate glossary of the words also but the reader might have found this approach cumbersome as he/she would have to turn the pages every time to look for a meaning, so the footnote approach is appreciated.
Overall, I would recommend this book to the readers looking for boosting their vocabulary.Its’ sure a fun way of learning. Good work, Manish! I thank you again for the wonderful read.
3.5/5 (for readers picking this up as story point of view or who are experienced readers)
5/5 (for the readers who really want to boost their vocabulary by learning in a fun way)
