Publisher's Summary

The new novel from the bestselling author of The Zoya Factor and Battle for Bittora.

In a sprawling bungalow on New Delhi's posh Hailey Road, Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur and his wife, Mamta, spend their days watching anxiously over their five beautiful (but troublesome) alphabetically named daughters. Anjini, married but an incorrigible flirt; Binodini, very worried about her children's hissa in the family property; Chandrakanta, who eloped with a foreigner on the eve of her wedding; Eshwari, who is just a little too popular at Modern School, Barakhamba Road; and the judge's favourite (though fathers shouldn t have favourites): the quietly fiery Debjani, champion of all the stray animals on Hailey Road, who reads the English news on DD and clashes constantly with crusading journalist Dylan Singh Shekhawat, he of shining professional credentials but tarnished personal reputation, crushingly dismissive of her state-sponsored propaganda , but always seeking her out with half-sarcastic, half-intrigued dark eyes.

Spot-on funny and toe-curlingly sexy, Those Pricey Thakur Girls is rom-com specialist Anuja Chauhan writing at her sparkling best.

light reading....average storyline

average storyline....tended to get boring at times....took me a long time to finish....did not get hold of me.....english accent of narrator did not do justice to the many Hindi words in the script....style of reading could have been better.

can't escape some good escapism

The story is very modern-fairytale like. And that's the good thing about the book. It gives you that opportunity to escape into another world that isn't too different from our own. Which makes it a nice, light listen. I would compare it to watching re runs of a sitcom we've watched a million times while doing mundane tasks like cleaning your cupboard. Which is what I like about this audiobook. There is something comforting about it.
The narration is what makes it difficult to listen to.
The narrator has clearly put in a lot of effort in making different voices to add personality to each character and help us visualise them. Usually when this is done it does help you stay engaged. But the voices given to the characters of this book is comical at most parts and made me feel like I was a child listening to Karadi tales or a Sharon Prabhakar cassette meant for kids.

I wish the same effort was put into a little research on how to pronounce some of the Hindi or Indian words. Basic names like "Sridhar" or even words like "biradari" were messed up.

Overall I quite enjoyed it. It was a good listen while commuting to work.

Predictable storyline and painstaking slow

Please done buy this on the the audiable app. The book is completely predictable, painstakingly slow. I decided to finish it as I had spent 700 odd rs on this.

too long

Let me start with I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the many different characters and hearing a story take place in a culture I'm not familiar with. But I was over it in around hour 10. It became unfocused and I felt like the author was juggling to many narritives for one book...so I started to not care anymore about the entire story and I actually skipped a few parts . I hate skipping along a narrative to just end a book. I feel as though the authors editor should have reined it in and cut off about 3 hours .

Not just a chick flick read

This book is a great read with a clever and lively plot, endearing characters and beautifully written. Can’t wait to read the sequel.
