Kanpur Khoofiya Pvt. Ltd
by Richa S Mukherjee
This is the very first time I have completely and irrevocably fallen in love with an Indian author. Ha! Me, who always use to criticize them for something or the other. I am talking about Richa Mukherjee, the author of Kanpur Khoofiya PVT Ltd.
The moment I started reading it, I knew that I was going to love this book and it’s super interesting characters.
Hat’s off to Richa, who did a remarkable job with her writing – simplistic, yet full of wit and humor – which is confident and self-assured and the narrative is vivid and compelling (I read this book in one sitting, which for me is the first time).
It will keep you chuckling…
This witty, suspense story Kanpur Khoofiya PVT Ltd. will keep you chuckling.
Furthermore, it has every element to keep you hooked; from intense moments to a little bit of action, to some mind-boggling mystery, all mixed in crazy humor.
I was mightily impressed with the story, dipped and soaked in Kanpuriya essence and peppered with Kanpuriya slang.
Every nook and corner of the story was a treat to my heart. There wasn’t a moment when I hadn’t chuckled like crazy.
Cherry to the cake was its characters. Especially, Prachand Tripathi and his wife Vidya, and also Hirwa, the cow.
These crazy characters seemed so real and believable, that they are now etched my heart forever.
It was fun following Prachand Tripathi as he was trying to solve the disappearance of famous personality Shailaja Kapoor, and the murder of her husband. Loved the chemistry between him and his wife Vidya, and their crazy banter was hilarious.
As crazy as the characters seem, and as nutty as their adventures are, they still seem so real and believable.
Do I recommend it?
Richa made sure that none can unravel the ‘whodunit’ mystery. She made us circle around our own assumptions. Kudos!
One thing that I did not like about the book was that it finished too early. I did not want it to end and, part with my favorite characters. I hope that Richa turns this book into a long series (fingers crossed).
For me, it’s a 5 out of 5 stars read.
