Review: The Trip

The Trip The Trip by Rohit Bandri
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

With simple words, this book has brought a smile on my face.

The Trip by Rohit Bandri is a story about Ravi who, along with his friends Akash, Prajakata, Gaurav, Pooja and Siddharth plans an adventurous trip to Ratnagiri, Maharashtra and then to Goa.

Ravi is a guy of simple and high quality manners, has friends who will do anything for him and support him throughout his life. But what he doesn't know that these friends are all the time hiding one thing or other from him. Maintaining his decency, he will wait for them to open up to him in their own suitable times.

Since the beginning of the story, the reader is aware about some emotional mysteries carried by all the other members in the group.

The 'look-up-for-meaning-of-simple-words' habit of the protagonist is to make you smile.

It's always good to read about the 'decent' guys once in a while, who won't get the girl of their dreams who have friendzoned them, just because they were too shy and didn't know about their own feelings, who are good at studies but not much when it comes to socializing.

Development of such character in this book, is fascinating to read. It's good to see them gain what they truly looked for!

What differentiates The Trip with other books is that the trip they had, felt way too personal and the simple tragic lives of all the characters are to connect with everyone.
