BOOK REVIEW - “NICE MEN FINISH LAST BY PRAVESH VIR SIDDHU”




​ The Romance has always been something that has caught my eye whenever i have a choice to pick a book. As the name suggests the book is about romance and the writer makes it so much worth reading.

The story revolves around Nandu, shattered. As his ex-girlfriend, Noor leaves him for another ‘not so nice’ guy, he feels like his world has collapsed. Unable to deal with this brutal heartbreak, he decides to change the way he leads his life. From being a guy with morals, he turns into a guy who lies to sleep around with girls, following the steps of his commitment phobic friend, Sattu. The circumstances described henceforth, involve Nandu behaving like a womanizer and have been written convincingly enough to make the reader dislike Nandu for his crass behavior. As the story progresses with Nandu’s niceness reinstated, Tanishq enters the story. A beautiful dentistry student, Tanishq creates quite an impact with her beauty and Nandu falls in love with her. From here the story turns into a sweet love story with lovers frolicking about. However his newfound happiness is not to last long as he realizes that his triumph while ‘scoring’ girls is a pretty depressed one and this leaves him feeling empty.

The narration actually differentiates a good writer from the average. This is so evident in this book. The narration of Prakash  with just enough characters in the book makes an ordinary story worth a read. The narration keeps in mind the everyday lingo that we use. The other character like ved is like friend everyone has. To explore the talent of the master storyteller you need to read this book.

Now my Positive viewpoints:

The positives of the story are the characters easily identifiable. Even though the narration is again easy to read and allows us to easily go through the entire story, the story sways through various emotions and makes the readers feel along with it. And the author gracefully weaves the character throughout the story. Like these lines, he keeps the storyline entirely simple, yet elegantly intersperses it with rich emotions.
Some suggestive points:

Although the narration of the story is good but in my opinion, the character of Nandu and the relationship with Tanishq could have been explored in detail. Even Sattu looks a little underplayed.

Final words:


Overall if asked I would say this is good job done by the author, the book is interesting and a fast read. The writer makes an ordinary storyline interesting with her narration abilities. I would give 4 stars to this book.
