The Zoya Factor - Book Review

The Zoya FactorThe Zoya Factor by Anuja Chauhan

It is one of the most boring books that I have read so far. What a waste of my time! It is about a rajput girl named Zoya Singh Solanki, who meets the Indian Cricket Team through her job as an executive in an advertising agency and ends up becoming a lucky charm for the team for the Cricket World Cup 2010 (Wiki).

Cricket - are we all really that obsessed with cricket?? It is hard to believe this book is listed amongst top 5 in many Indian newspaper (who makes all those rating anyway!). Here's what Times of India (found on Wiki) has to say , "it is a fun read which takes the Indian chick-lit way beyond mush and smut, right to freakily naughty. Her writing is very funny, very now and very funny. Her themes of cricket, love and politics are smartly topical." I laughed when I read that. Zoya factor is a run of the mill M&B book. Madam Anuja Chauhan please - try some other topics -- as it is, we do get our good and daily dose of cricket from all channels here.

The last book that I found so boring was The White Tiger. Phew!

  1. Writing about cricket can be boring if you are neither Neville Cardus nor Ramachandra Guha!

    These books are a waste of time, and many biographies of cricketers are genuine waste of time.

    Enjoy the game :)
