Review: I am so lazy in buying a book as I had so many books for review, but after continuously insisting to read I.T Hurts by Subhasis Das, I finally purchased the book. The title was interesting and true for all the people working in IT Industry. And the cover suited perfectly. The blurb was also simple. I loved the narration of the book. Subhasis had improved so much after his book “Mom says No to Girlfriend” and I appreciate it. Mahi is always better in terms of emotions. All the emotional element in the book and romance between Ananya and Gautam were perfectly written. It was a very strange and unique relationship which made the book an interesting read. I also loved the office politics and friendship between Gautam, Subho, Ali, Richa,Pritam and Moody. All six shared a perfect bond of friendship and passion. The interesting part of the book was it’s subtitles was taken from the books which some of us have read. The climax as expected was a happy ending with some humorous touch. As a reader, it was nice read and the flow of the book keeps you hooked till the end. For all those people working in IT industry and people who want to read a light and simple reading must read the book. All the best to both the Authors.
Drawback: Few chapters related to IT Industry was boring. As too much of Computers sometimes make you bore.
