I completely disagree with people who feels that night in call centre was boring.. I think it was really nice. It really gave us an insight of how call centre work in India. In India the youngsters are getting quick money by working in these call centres but ser there is no dignity in this job. You are taking crap from foreigners who knows nothing. Imagine ur whole identity is changed..Nikhil becomes Nick Jaspreet becomes Jazz.. What is this?? I think the book really give us a glimpse of how things actually are at the call centre with some interesting plot so that the readers dont feel bored.. I really liked the book.

Sorry to say but it's not everyday that an author makes and imagines a complete new world where every single thing has been thought of... From characters to transport to communication! It was completely new, unless if you've seen the movie first or read one of the many authors who's caught on the "magic"

One book overrated, i think was 5 point someone. It was good book no doubt but the way people were going on and on about it! It was no real story as such. Just incidents. And the end of the year. that's about it. I somehow expected more. Never the less, it was well written. Clap
i so agree wid you..when i read the 3rd book..it just cud'nt go frm my memory..whtz written is not true..but she created a magicial world where we can imagine and indulge in creativity...many authors write the same kind of books..no uniqueness!but jk has written a book for us which takes us to another world..a world of bravery,unconditional frendship and love!I just love the book!no doubt..it rocks..it lives upto ur expectations!!!A book which may give us sum sort of goosebumps and nervousness!I love it!!!!ClapClap

now sam[i think thts ur name] i disagree wid u...! to me...harry potter is soo over-rated!! I was hoping that someone would actually mention harry potter in this thread and was pleased by seeing this. I dont think by writing this fantasy series J.K. Rowling deserved to be the richest writer in the literary history! since there are books way better than this! [jus my poin of view]  

im sure there r many books better than harry potter, but i do agree wid sam..... jk rowling hasn't become the world's for nothing.... there r more than a million ppl on this planet who absolutely love the harry potter books (me included Embarrassed ).... if the hp books were disappointing, then nobody wud read them.... anyway, to each his own Smile.... everybody has their own point of view & i guess urs differs frm mine.....Big smile

to me, it wud be "The Monk who Sold his Ferrari".... my bro told me its very good but i didn't really like it Ouch

i kno all of u will disagree with me but i think 'emma' by 'jane austen' is really boring i read sth like 100 pgs and then i gave up.the same thing keeps on going on and on and nothing interesting happens. but everyone else who read it says that it is a very good book.

Of course, Harry Potter has its technique of catching reader's interests, but, I somehow also don't like the book.  I have only read the first one, because I started it.  I also found it so boring. 

Once again, it depends on your selection, and what genre you prefer.  I, for one, am not into magic, wands, and the magical world that Harry Potter illustrates.
