Book Review: Pinto Has An Idea

Reading something different is always fun. Besides those usual genres like romance, thriller, mythological; I was looking for some interesting story to read. I have read contemporary fiction for the first time and I am not disappointed. The title of this book caught my attention and I decided to give it a read.

This is the story of Rajat who is commonly named as Pinto. He is a scientist and a social worker who might be a politician too. He hails from middle class background that was home tutored in his earlier years. However, he later studies in IIT and becomes a scientist working in MIT. Unromantic Pinto meets Lavanya who moves on to become his life partner. Pinto with his new mechanism wants to do something for the society which begins his road towards joining politics. During all this when Pinto is about to reach the peak of success, Lavanya leaves him suddenly without telling him anything. That brings in the curiosity to read further. This story has many aspects like love story of a scientist, curiosity and determination of a middle class boy, social worker turning into a politician and a lot of ideas.

I loved that the book had some of the elements discussing about my city which made me feel connected. Afterall if you are reading a fiction story that is happening in your city, you will surely smile. The title is brilliant and apt for the story. This scientist Pinto has too many ideas. Narration was good however I felt bored at times when there were too many descriptions about the machines. The cover was good but I did not like its colour combinations. It seemed dull due to the colour. The narration was good.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves reading irrespective of the genre because it has elements of various genres.

Cover- 3.5 / 5 (The colours really disappointed me)

Plot- 4 / 5

Narration- 4 / 5

Title- 4.5 / 5

Overall- 4 / 5
