Book Review: My Singapore Fling by Sudesna Ghosh

My Singapore Fling by Sudesna Ghosh-4-851x315 poster

“After many relationships and breakups, she’s decided that love is a waste of time. She travels to Singapore for a few days, on a quest to have a fun, meaningless fling.” This is what the blurb said. I must admit it piqued my interest. It is something I always wished I had the guts to do. So I naturally wanted to know if Dipa had her fling.

Right from the beginning the book held my attention. It is easy to read. I finished it in one sitting, in about an hour and a half.singaporefling cover

It is a light hearted read and sentences like “My bed at home would be ashamed if it saw me sleeping on planes” had me smiling in agreement.

The heroine is unapologetically herself. She is comfortable with her sexuality and the fact that she enjoys watching hot guys.

I like books that make me feel as if I am in the book interacting with the characters. This only happens if the characters appear real and if their interaction with each other is believable. With this book, I found myself right there in the midst of the story.

It was a perfect way of spending a chilly evening with a hot cup of chai and my dog curled up on my feet.

Meet Dipa Basu. She’s a 30 something modern Bengali woman living in Kolkata and a successful writer. After many relationships and breakups, she’s decided that love is a waste of time. She’s always had these phases where she’s been obsessed with different things; like one where old men in dhotis appealed to her. But this time she’s crazy about men with British and Australian accents. She travels to Singapore for a few days, on a quest to have a fun, meaningless fling. Her trip is full of surprises. Will Dipa have her Singapore Fling?
 
Read an excerpt:
I woke up as the plane landed with that comforting thud. I grew up with that thud. It’s a welcome – and a reminder that a long hot shower isn’t too far away. So I grabbed my suitcase with crazy anticipation in my system because this trip was all about a good change. It was my chance to set things right in my boring 30 something year old life. Romantic love was overrated. I’d had enough of that crap. Time for some unemotional fun. The girls had attempted to analyse me saying, “Dipa, you are sensitive, emotional, and all about feelings. Are you sure about a fling?” I was sure. Sure I cried during most movies. Yeah, I couldn’t stand animal cruelty or injustice to the poor. But this was meant to happen.

The badass Shikha is startled when the nerdy Abhimanyu proposes marriage. She loves… herself, and Abhimanyu doesn’t figure on her list anywhere. For Abhimanyu, however, it was love at first sight when Shikha walked into RS Software, where the two of them work.

When Abhimanyu shows her that he just might be rich enough for her, a pleasantly surprised Shikha accepts his marriage proposal and moves into his swanky apartment.

But it looks like the love is all from only Abhi’s side as Shikha continues to drink herself crazy. Yeah, even at their wedding party.

And then Abhi sets out on a honeymoon to Thailand with His Drunken Wife…

*MARRIAGES MADE IN INDIA is a five-novella series that revolves around the characters you have met in The Runaway Bridegroom.
