Sintesi dell'editore

In the tradition of Shobhan Bantwal's successful Indian American novels, Sonali Dev's debut captures the colorful spirit and fascinating details of Indian and Bollywood culture - including a lavish wedding - while delivering an emotionally layered and accessible story.

Mili Rathod has been bound by marriage since she was four years old. But when her husband shows no sign of claiming her after 20 years of waiting, Mili grabs the chance to leave India and come to America on a scholarship.

Playboy filmmaker Samir "Sam" Rathod is Bollywood's favorite bad boy. He'll do anything for his big brother - even travel halfway across the globe to take care of the "wife" who just crawled out of his brother's past. Yet Mili isn't the simple village girl Sam expected. She's a whirlwind who sucks him into her roommate's elaborate elopement and soon has him drowning in her onyx eyes. And though Mili fancies herself in love with his big brother, the husband she has never met, Sam is hoping for a very different ending.

Incredibly Frustrating for Hindi Speakers.

I've never been this disappointed in an audiobook. The narrator mispronounced 90% of the Hindi words to the point where it actually pulled me out of the story. If you speak Hindi or anything Hindi adjacent, be prepared to grit your teeth constantly.

Just average

I generally enjoy reading books by Indian authors. Best I can say about this one, though, is that it was an average read. With the exception of a few chapters, most move too slowly, with much repetition of old stereotypes. I would skip this one.

A Bollywood Affair Review

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, once I got through the beginning, I really liked the book.

What other book might you compare A Bollywood Affair to and why?

Nothing comes to mind. Original in my library.

Have you listened to any of Priya Ayyar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Though I got angry at both Mili and Samir at times for not telling each other who they were,I was rooting for the two of them all along.

Any additional comments?

It started out slow for me. I loved the Hindi narrator, but there were so many names (unusual to my ears) that it was hard to keep track of them all. Overall I enjoyed the story.

A predictable folly full of soap bubbles

I enjoyed the narrator, and that is about it. I have to write six more words. There, that should do it.

Bit Dull

It was hard getting through this one, but I wanted to keep going just in case it got better.

It didn't. The story was stale, predictable, and unrealistic. The luscious amount of detail and the reader's great voicing of it saved it a bit, but the story itself was a chore to get to the end.

I Tried& Tried But Just Could Not Follow This Book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think that it may have been too complicated/complex for me to follow. So strip down and streamline the plot. That would be my recommendation.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A contemporary romance.

What three words best describe Priya Ayyar’s performance?

Heavily accented English

Could you see A Bollywood Affair being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Perhaps I could see a Bollywood affair being made into a movie or a mini TV series. I have no idea who I would suggest for acting in it.

Any additional comments?

I really wanted to like this book and to follow the journey of all of the characters. However, after many tries to start at the beginning and follow along, I just wasn't successful.

So-so

The narrator was pretty dull and mostly monotone. There were a few mispronounced words as well. The story was predictable, but is good for an easy beach listen.

Wow!

For me this is the perfect type of romance novel. I loved it. I took all sorts of sneaky opportunities to listen to it. It was beautiful, funny, sad and heartwarming. If I wrote romances, I would have wanted to have written this one.
