As I started reading Stolen Hearts, it was an unstoppable read. The incidents were so fun and fast moving. I kept on reading through pages. What I really liked more than the story was the way in which it was presented to the reader. It was an all away fun. Every character is prepared to atleast tickle your fun bone, if at all then don’t make you laugh. Be it a simple milkman, dabhawala, petty thief, police, gang leaders or be it a Chief Minister. The homework done in the characterisation is very much appreciable. Special kudos to Rohit Gahlowt. Not just the characters, even the situations are quite funny. When I read through the gang leader’s den incident and a thief hiding himself in a cupboard, I was able to link with characters of Asterix & Obelix. Similarly, the incidents in the dhabha certainly made me laugh out loud. There is romance too, but it took a little backend allowing humour to lead through. And I have no complaints. The book is a fun filled, single sitting read. If a proper screenplay is done, it can be developed into a movie. Atleast a serial. Best wishes to the author.
My Verdict: One time fun filled read.
