Book 21: One Night @ the Call Center by Chetan Bhagat


One Night At The Call Center by Chetan Bhagat

Finished reading on December 22, 2012

Rating 8/10

I had the thought of reading this book in the back of my mind since I finished reading Bhagat’s “Five Point Someone” on one rainy northern-hemisphere autumn day.

Having finished this one so little time after Desai’s “The Inheritance of Loss” I’ve got to mention that just a few more books like that and you’d get a perfect set of books to suggest to an American tourist planning on visiting India – they’d probably change their minds and choose an European country instead… (just joking…maybe)

I didn’t find this book fun, but at least it wasn’t depressing, rather a little motivational, and despite Vroom’s rather politically and morally incorrect approach to helping the call center, I found the ending great.

As for everything else – some books give me the feeling, as if it were all about a different planet, a different species sometimes too. “One Night @ the Call Center” did it too. The Human’s ability to complain doesn’t stop surprising me… it does amaze me though, how often they’re complaining about other people..or whole nations or countries… and it just doesn’t make a difference unless the ones you’re complaining about hear it too.

Anyway, the book was good, but I liked “Five Point Someone ” better.

  2. Not too long ago – I (Le – Mrs WiseMonkey) read this book and felt that too much happened towards the end. I enjoyed the book overall but would’ve liked the story to be a little more “balanced” if that makes sense!!
    Agree with all your other points!

    • It does seem that Bhagat piles a lot of important events into the end of his books indeed, I hadn’t realized it myself, but now that I think about it, that seems true.
