Or may be not, I am just hallucinating. This is a simple book with simple story. Go read it, you will enjoy it --By Bhallukie on November 16, The story is simple yet lovable.

I couldn't resist reading the entire book in one sitting. I too fell in love with the character Riya while reading the book. This is my third favorite book from the author Chetan Bhagat. The other too being 'five point someone' and 'three mistakes of my life'. See all Product description.

The most amazing part of the novel is The letter to Madhav by Riya when she left him and her journals Small things tells you a lot about girl and women-- how do they think about others, how they perceive things, its important to understand people and this is what this novel does.

Amazing work Mr Bhagat One more fan in your list. Paperback Verified Purchase. Well it is a really nice book But i just don't like the character of the girl Riya When I first bought it My cousin borrowed it from me and his experiences while reading this book was unbelievable He cried in the emotional sentences and his little brother was shocked af When he told me those and acted those reactions,I laughed really hard And i also give it to my friend She also enjoyed reading it And the shocking fact is that till now i haven't read this book I found his "Half Girlfriend" simple and beautiful with quite a few messages.

A story of a boy who struggles with English, finding the love of his life, losing her, encountering her again and guess what, losing her once more, intertwined with the problems and the total lack of amenities in rural CB has written a wonderful love story with lots of twists and turns which will leave you in tears on several occasions.

Whenever Madhav seems recuperated from his pains, the suffering starts all over again. However there are other elements to this book which adds to the appeal like the inferiority complex Madhav develops due to his inability to converse in English and the way he overcomes that, the difference between the high class Delhi and the impoverished rural Bihar where people struggle to get 3 hours of power supply on a daily basis, the grants offered by Melinda Gates foundation to Madhav's school which even our government couldn't etc.

Overall I really liked the book and this one is right on top of CB's books along with 2 states. Enjoy the read! All I know is I was happy, jubilant, ecstatic that this ordeal ended. AND the rant is over. I'm never picking up his book again no matter what my friends thinks. And CB fans who will say he makes people read, good for him.

Why it always have to be the same cycle: You know what? For writing this trash out and misleading youth with these craps! View all 88 comments. Oct 02, Ankit Dubey rated it really liked it. I think Chetan Bhagat gets way more stick than he deserves.

The truth is, he writes and India reads. Most of his criticism stems from the purists or the "hard-core literature fans" who can't stand the fact that he is the most popular writer from India.

Yes, his writing style is nothing compared to an Ayn Rand, a Rohinton Mistry or a Khaled Hosseini, but someone who is selling so much must be doing something right. And he is.

Bhagat always takes up issues which resonate with the masses. In Half Girlfriend, the protagonist is a Bihari guy named Madhav who has a hard time speaking English. Now what can be more common than that? I can envision thousands of youth in Bihar, who will never read "To Kill a Mocking Bird", but who will readily see themselves in Madhav and will have no difficulty in comprehending Bhagat's simplistic yet charming writing style.

The beauty of this process is, some, if not many, will start seeing reading in a different light and will become become readers for life Hopefully picking up books with more intellectual depth and profound life lessons.

This, I feel, is Bhagat's biggest contribution. The repeated references to Madhav's poor English is annoying at times, but almost every book has a phase where the reader fights within himself to either put it down or soldier along. I chose to read on. And the book did hold my attention. Till the last page. I have read my fair share of classics and some have bored me to death. Half Girlfriend had me hooked. Its a charming love story.

You will end up rooting for Madhav Well, if you don't hold a blinkered opinion of Bhagat's work, that is. There is the inevitable drama. Almost Bollywood like. But it is Chetan Bhagat we are talking about.

Will you ever dare to criticise Khaled Hosseini for describing the beauty of Afghanistan? Will you lambast Dan Brown for going into minute details of Roman Architecture? Well, no.

Half Girlfriend by Chetan Bhagat

You will just say that its their own style. This slightly surreal drama is Bhagat's style. And its good. He has his own niche. It's a different story altogether that a new "generation" of young writers flourished in India after Five Point Someone, trying to imitate Bhagat's style and ended up hurting his already many times questioned reputation.

Bhagat touches on the problem of rural education in India and the book also suggests ways to improve one's English. The techniques may seem too raw for the average Goodreads user or a regular reader, but in truth, they are effective.

A 15 year boy reading this book in Bihar will understand this more than you and I will ever will. Half Girlfriend is a very good read. A sweet love story. An avid reader can easily finish it in two-three sessions. It will be lapped up by India's youth. It is a bestseller for sure. Chetan Bhagat's legend becomes stronger. I just hope that people digest the fact that he is a good writer who knows his strengths and sticks by them. Make it your strength.

Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you. You Sir, have all my respect. From a fan who has read enough books to not be classified as a "Only Chetan Bhagat books guy.

But i can say one thing for sure, this was the only book by Chetan Bhagat i could stand!! He comes from a "not so royal anymore" royal family from the state of Bihar. Bihar is one of the most backward 3 stars!!! Bihar is one of the most backward states in India and is generally looked down upon by many.

Since he lived in Bihar most of his life his english is pretty screwed up and I for one am not the judgmental type when it comes to not knowing english, and i also thought this book was better because of this detail. SO when he goes to New Delhi, for college to the best college in India actually he is made fun of for his spoken english.

This is where he meets Riya, a tall, Beautiful girl who just like him plays basket ball for the collage team. They get talking and eventually become reallllyyyy close. But wait there is one problem, according to her it was just friendship but according to him it was just LOVE, hmmm not the first time you have seen a guy friendzoned. It was her fault as well, even if the guy u friendzoned kisses u and asks to for more u say "NO. Riya does, she leads him on. She makes him hungry for more and she goes to his room after playin basket ball cuz she wants a nap!

He goes to apologize but she tells him that she was getting married to her family friend Rohan. Just when i was like The book actually got better and better. Madhav though not fully recovered from his heart break , goes back to his village to help run a village school which was started by his mother t provide free education to the poor.

He meets divorced Riya again and she offers him help with his english as he had to make a speech for BILL GATES who was coming on a visit to India for sponsoring organisations working for the society's betterment. He needed a speech that convinces Gates foundation to provide him the grant. It dealt with major issues that India faces today and how we can achieve anything with determination and hard work.

It really touched me, how much of suffering ppl in Indian villages face, especially the kids. He gets the grant and when he looks around for Riya she disappears leaving him a letter saying she has lung cancer and that she has only a little time left and not to come look for her.

He is hear broken again. Also at the end I figured out that the "not knowing english" was just left there hanging in mid air. I thought this aspect ,if it were made use of in a more substantial way would have made it a little more interesting. So the book wraps up with a happily ever after. He gets the girl, he gets the kid. YAY ME! View all 14 comments. Oct 26, Manan Puri rated it it was ok. A portrayed as loser guy: Check 2.

This time, its a screenplay waiting for Deepika Padukone to accept the girl's role and the movie can kick-off to make cr. Just when you think the 'twists' in the plot can't get any more miraculous, CB comes up with another one which can give randomness another random beating. He even randomly praises his brilliance as a writer for, wait a sec In the end, CB's popularity is at that level where he can tell his detractors "Padta hai to pad, warna kat le"!!!

Nov 06, Nikhat Hetavkar marked it as gave-up-on Shelves: I've read every Chetan Bhagat book if we can call those sentences lumped together a book only to argue with my friends as to why I absolutely depise his writing. So again a CB novel arrives on the market. And every social media page is flooded with my friends I may have to disown them after this exclaiming "Chetan Bhagat - My favourite author" "The best author" and likewise idiotic comments.

After flipkart taunting me for weeks, I finally decided to pick up the book and form a well devel Hah. After flipkart taunting me for weeks, I finally decided to pick up the book and form a well developed opinion about the hate this stupid title with its smug announcement of its bollywood movie along with the book release inspire in me. Thankfully this time I did not actually BUY the book. I borrowed it from a friend. I looked up to see my bookshelf staring at me and obviously judging me.

I dont have a hyper active imagination for nothing Nope, I decided. Life's way too short to read shitty books like these when there are so many great books I still need to read as my shelf reminded me not so gently. Just plain NO. Life's way too short. And I am not picking this book up again even if it means never getting to correct moronic idiots in their rant about the brilliance of CB.

I am DONE. May 28, Nu-Jahat-Jabin rated it did not like it. View all 4 comments.

I'd personally recommend Zero Defect if you want a fast paced, and thought provoking read.

There is also a lesser known among indians book Shantaram though not written by and indian author is an interesting contemporary book set in Mumbai. So, open your mind and read something better for change ; Oct 29, Priyanka rated it did not like it. I quote:: But I felt something deep inside, strong enough for my heart to say, You have to talk to this girl Actual rating - HALF star So the story goes like this: Read the book at your own risk.

Knowing that you will never be able to "un-read" it. Knowing that you could have spent that time reading something else I would suggest reading a user manual, it at least makes sense. Why is it that people can't get over the "A guy and a girl can never be friends" crap? Also, this book is wrong on so many levels! Why would you do something even after the lady repeatedly says 'No'. It is never a yes. I can't believe the author who claims to be a "feminist" could write something like this.

Chetan Bhagat has fallen to new found lows to write a book only in hopes of making it into a masala blockbuster movie. View all 5 comments. Dec 03, Pooja rated it did not like it Recommends it for: My enemies.

With all due respect, only Half Star. Dec 03, Navaneeta rated it did not like it. The sense of achievement that fills me up as I move to mark this book as "I am finished" is enormous. I am finally, actually finished with Bhagat and his scripts. You see Chetan Bhagat and I go back a long way.

Bhagat was like this cool guy with whom I can be myself when we met with Five Point Someone. Those days when I was immersed in the sadness of Velutha in the backwaters of Ker The sense of achievement that fills me up as I move to mark this book as "I am finished" is enormous. Those days when I was immersed in the sadness of Velutha in the backwaters of Kerala or fighting a losing battle with Sydney Carton in the streets of Paris or just dying in the quarantined city of Oran, Ryan and Hari seemed like the best friends just waiting for me out there.

I felt obliged to read each book that Bhagat wrote. As he kept writing, our relationship changed. I became more of an elder sister indulging little Chetan's "i-am-so-proud-of-myself" moments. His criticism of Rushdie made me cringe as did his "superior" opinions regarding boring old vultures engaged in English literature. Gradually little Chetan became the most influential person in free India after Ekta Kapoor. I watched his decline growth with amazement.

Someone somewhere had said something stupid about how it's impossible to fool all the people all the time or some such nonsense, yet look at this wonderful literary entrepreneur who just keeps on surging ahead, breaking all the taboos!

People today are reading more than they ever did!! I guess as a science and management student, Bhagat internalised and based his empire on Einstein's famous premise about human stupidity. Through his works, he propounds this basic tenet again and again.

Here's one for Science; take that you English Puritans! As to Half Girlfriend, well, the girl is sexy and hot in her shorts. She is equally sexy and hot in salwar-kameez. She is even more disturbingly hot when she's sick in bed. She is immensely alluring in a saree. She is sleazier than a Honey Singh song when in a dress. She is of course very beautiful and sexy and hot.

She is a girl. She doesn't want to have sex despite being so sexy and hot. I think her name is Riya. That's redundant. She has wonderful legs limbs. The End. View all 7 comments. Oct 26, Shoa Khan rated it did not like it Shelves: Chetan Bhagat has over-exploited way too many stereotypes in this book.

The stuff about girls giggling senselessly at just about anything a rich guy says is especially repulsive. Aug 11, Vaibhav Anand rated it did not like it. I haven't read this, nor do I intend to. Funny that Goodreads allows people to rate books that haven't even released.

You want to believe that such love still exists.. I love how Chetan Bhagat writes. He does not care about using heavy vocabulary like most of the Indian authors which personally breaks my interest in reading because referring a dictionary every second line is no fun.

He relates to today's youth and his stories tota It is one of those books you just pick up and then cannot put down. He relates to today's youth and his stories totally reflect that. Do not read this book if you are one of those who read to add to their literary shelves Ayn Rand or Khalid Housseini Oct 07, Vineet rated it did not like it Shelves: Throughout the novel, Bhagat mesmerizes you with careful written description of things. Thank you for telling me.

Also, they are downright hilarious. All the scenes are so overdone in books and cinemas of the past that you feel they are plagiarized, like girlfr Throughout the novel, Bhagat mesmerizes you with careful written description of things. All the scenes are so overdone in books and cinemas of the past that you feel they are plagiarized, like girlfriend is reading but the sun is on her, so you block the sun, girlfriend removes a rice grain from your face so you put more grains on it.

The dialogues, The dialogues are so unengaging. Every dialogue is followed by the meaning of it. I mean if someone is concerned, happy, sad, anything, you should be able to make it out with his dialogue. Bhagat is so unconfident in his dialogues that most of them are followed by what the dialogue meant, he throws it on your face, look he is concerned now, look he is hurt now.

Also, I think Bhagat self assumes that he is the voice of this generation and he raises all sorts of issues through this book. These issues, go nowhere, nothing is further mentioned. And why this title? Just because Riya says this once, we get this title? This title is like the click-bait headlines we see online, a marketing gimmick, so you get curious.

Not even a proper meaningful para. In the end, this book is lazily written with a single objective that it is picked by some movie producer. It feels like a screenplay, nothing else. As a book, it is so poor and devoid of content, filled with the most generic of description.

The detailing that the book uses are so stupid, like when Madhav is on the station, he tells us he ate puri-aloo. Yeah, so what?

Is it a essential thing to say? This review was edited to be spoiler-free. To read my full review, head over to- http: Mar 26, Trishia Nashtaran rated it did not like it. Oct 01, Sailesh Mohanty rated it it was ok.

I read it. Or rather I survived it. It was delivered today, nicely wrapped up with a cool bookmark and that is where all the good things about reading this book ends. I am certain this book will be a blockbuster, a game changer of sorts and Chetan Bhagat will continue to dish out overtly dramatized Bollywood scripts as novels. I am also certain that Chetan Bhagat uses a software that does the scripting for him.. All he does is probably enter the lead character names, the location of the story an I read it.

All he does is probably enter the lead character names, the location of the story and the software churns out story after story till CB decides this is it. Almost like one of those Facebook apps that let's us know which Game of Thrones character we are and we keep on clicking it till we get a character of our choice.

Stephen's College. The story follows a horny lad from Bihar who gets raunchy whenever he is in close proximity with a girl, who looks down upon his roots and his home state in almost every second page and who has this burning desire to kiss, anytime anywhere. His love interest is Riya, a confused, rich girl.

So confused and so rich that for reasons best known to Chetan Bhagat she drops out of St Stephen's after managing to get in. And why? To get married to an older, richer guy who also happens to be the same guy she has tied Rakhi to for years. Clearly, Chetan Bhagat's book dishing software likes Game of Thrones. She is also averse to kissing, for odd pages the guy tries to get her to kiss him, on rooftops, in parks, in theatres, in boys hostel room, basically every place a horny pervert deems appropriate for a little smoochy woochy.

But her answer is always no.. Such is the frequency of her rejections that as a reader you would start wondering Its only a kiss'. So after pages of a very mediocre love story, it ends in the most Chetan Bhagat-ish way possible A kid!!

Little Shyam makes an appearance in the last page. At this point you, as a reader would be aware of certain facts about Chetan Bhagat, he loves horny dudes, he loves drama, he loves impromptu making out sessions and he loves happy endings, so much so that he scripts the most ridiculous twist and brings a character out from the dead. Ekta Kapoor move over New player is in town. What Chetan Bhagat does not love, apparently, is a gripping story line.

May be I am being too harsh, may be he has the potential to be India's Murakami. But if you base your novel on plot twist with the ridiculously lecherous line 'dena hai toh de warna kat le fuck me or fuck off ' and then spend the rest of the novel trying to pass it off as unrequited love It just does not cut it for me. Devoid of humor and a cat mouse chase that's more predictable than Poonam Pandey's next striptease, this one of the worst books I have laid my hands on in recent times.

Thats 3 hours and bucks I am never getting back Verdict - Wait for the movie instead Atleast it will have some cool songs and Alia Bhatt. Oct 03, Shishir Chaudhary rated it liked it. Ordinary life is undervalued, as G K Chesterton puts it in his The Defense of Penny Dreadfuls , and is reflected quite strangely in the amount of hatred that popular fiction, in the form of paperbacks, attract.

His work is openly termed as trash, vulgar and even an insult to literature. His work and likewise many other paperbacks - the Rs. But some of these are not trash, vulgar and insults to literature — these are the actual "centers of a million flaming imaginations". I read Chetan Bhagat's books for their entertainment quotients, and this book is high on it. And if one takes up this book without a Literary Snob's judgmental hat irrespective of whether or not she has actually read what she believes to be good literature , she would conclude that this is indeed a good story.

This book reads more like a screenplay of a Hindi movie, a bit exaggerated but entertaining one at that. The writing isn't bad either - it is simple, normal, ordinary, everyday but not bad. To dismantle the pre-conceived notions of many, it is not a funny book with a hilarious plot as the title suggests - It is one serious love story with one of the most flawed protagonists I have come across.

And that is where the problem lies. Bhagat, amidst all the proceedings, gets the characterization wrong. So, while you had started rooting for Madhav, one dialogue of his comes up and you decide to hate him for the rest of the book. But then again you see a better side of him and you end up being confused about him.

Flow – Psychology of Optimal Experience

The same holds for his mother, Rani Sahiba. But the gem of the story is definitely the half-girlfriend - Riya Somani. Bhagat comes up with a nice portrayal of a troubled poor rich girl from Lutyens' Delhi with her own set of ambitions. Right from the beginning you know she is the star of the story. I read it in 6 hours with an overnight break in between and those were some good 6 hours spent. Recommended, if you like and are not judgmental of the better Hindi romantic movies.

Oct 20, Avanthika rated it did not like it. The problem is, when I want something, I will have all of it for myself or I won't bother to give a damn about it. Half of that particular thing, according to me is pointless and useless. Say for example, my grades, either they'll be "A" or "E".

Strictly I won't stand in-between the two extremes. Stevens, New Delhi. There you are putting a intermission board, after which she returns divorced. And the rest of the story is what happens in most of Yash Chopra films and Aashique Please See, I don't know in which category I've to put this thing called a "relationship" between the two into.

I feel naive to call that a relationship at the first place. D Dear Chetan, you're not a national sensation anymore when it comes to contemporary writings. There are writers who are striking the chord at the right place with their simple-witty way of tale-telling. Stop annoying the readers with no-so-catchy storyline like these. You're seriously annoying.

I pretty much skipped the new York portion coz I already knew how it would end. What is love!

The only reason I am giving this book two stars is because I am a huge fan of Chetan Bhagat and love his books but this book was nothing more than a waste of time and a huge disappointment. There was not much of a story plot and the entire plot felt as though it was overly exaggerated. I love Chetan Bhagat's writing but in this book it felt too monotonous and the story,the writing everything felt as though I have already read it several times which I probably did in all his other books!!

The The only reason I am giving this book two stars is because I am a huge fan of Chetan Bhagat and love his books but this book was nothing more than a waste of time and a huge disappointment. The characters were really hard to connect to and it was difficult to sympathize with them. I felt as though I was reading a plot straight out from some cheesy hindi movie. I merely tolerated the book for the sake of finishing it. What I don't understand is why does all his books have to have a beautiful girl who doesn't want to be tied up in a relationship or is too confused and a guy who is either shy or feels way out of league of the girl and yet falls in love with her at first sight!!

Nothing about the book feels original or makes you fall in love with the characters. So all I can say that this book is a major waste of time!! View 1 comment. Mar 23, Archit Ojha rated it it was ok Shelves: Half Girlfriend is a story about a boy meets a girl and falls in love.

Madhav is a boy from Bihar, who doesn't know much English. Riya is a girl from high society and speaks fluent English. I have enjoyed previous books by Chetan Bhagat but honestly, this book didn't click much. I started reading Chetan's books when I was in my 10th grade around It all started when my friends used to gush and discuss at length about his books.

And with those gush fests piquing my curiosity, I gave it a go. Blame that immature mind, I went gaga over his books and followed them religiously. I considered him the literary genius of our generation. Few years down the line when I re-read those books, I realized what an idiot I have been all through. While I couldn't go beyon I started reading Chetan's books when I was in my 10th grade around While I couldn't go beyond the 1st chapter in Revolution , Half-Girlfriend was the last nail in the coffin.

Every book of Chetan's has the same old story, just few sex scenes peppered here and there. He should probably stop writing books and write stories for Bollywood movies.

I don't know why I gave even that one star. Only if there was an option for negative rating in Goodreads. Oct 02, Gokul S rated it it was ok. I am not one of those arm chair intellectuals who 'hates' Chetan Bhagat and his books. Then again, I am not a big fan of his works either, except for 2 States maybe, which I consider a brilliant and realistic effort.

Scene 1. Posh college in Delhi. Cut to the rustic yet beautiful Bihari village. Cut to the rich and exotic New York city. Say hello to a perfect little Bollywood script. Chetan Bhagat's latest offering is exactly that and nothing more. Well I forgot the beat-around-the-bush social message. Does it impress?
