Book Review: 3 @ a time by Diptendu Chakraborty

Publisher: Omji Publishing House Pvt. Ltd.

The Blurb:

Falling in love is one of the most exquisite feelings that one can experience in their lifespan. But what if while searching for your true soul mate, you end up having that ‘exquisite feeling’ for three people at the same time?

3 @ a time is the story of Deepankar and his tryst with trust, love, relationship, betrayal and humiliation with 3 girls at the same time along with maintaining his reputation as the wonder boy of his college.

Deepankar- strong, laborious; with a never-say-die attitude while searching for true love ends up in relation with three girls from his college.

Notorious yet dedicated for his deeds at college, Deepankar seeks love from his dream girl who turns out to be homosexual!

And then destiny plays its game.

And the reason- GIRLFRIENDS

But one should never back down and nor did Deepankar; Pooja stood by him in full support.

And in the end…

It does matter

Will the search for his soul mate be completed after his rendez vous with all the three girls?

Will Deepankar restore his faith in others or will life throw curve balls at him?

Will he be able to maintain his reputation or will be hailed as a wonder?

“3 @ a time” tells us not to be complacent on our victories neither be demotivated on our losses.

What did I feel about the story?

Deepankar, a B.E. graduate, is admitted in to the Khandala Business School for pursuing his post graduation degree.

Just like what happens with the hostellers in normal life, Deepankar and his friends are ragged. But, Deepankar being witty and friendly befriends his seniors and manages to become ‘THE COOL DUDE’ in his college. He charms everybody with his dancing skills.

I have heard people saying that having a boyfriend/ girlfriend changes a person’s life completely- those late night phone calls, texting each other during lectures, going shopping, dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, arguments, fights etc.- it all bugs a person to an extent beyond measure. Here, Deepankar manages to balance all three relationships! I am surprised. Not even a single girl comes to know about Deepankar’s three timing affair.

And then dawns a day, when the 3 girls face the reality!

3 @ a time is a story of Deepankar’s genuine love for Nisha (and then Pooja), his physical attraction for Ritika, Sonali and Sanjana, his innocent crush on Dwipannita, his negligence towards the placement cell, his war with the studies and what not!
3 @ a time is a sure pick for readers who love to read about college life.

What did I like about the book?

  • Though Deepankar portrays himself as a Casanova, he believes in true love. His love for Nisha and Pooja can be seen. But he fails to admit it.
  • Deepankar’s dedication towards the Brand Committee.
  • Deepankar’s and Pooja’s friendship. (I envy it.)

What I did not like about the book?

The editing has not been done properly. With proper editing, this book will surely rock.

P.S: This novel has a great scope for a sequel. Eagerly waiting to know what happened to Deepankar after stepping out from college.

My ratings:

Story- 3/5
Cover- 2/5
Characters- 3/5
Narration- 3/5

My overall rating for the book- 3/5
