Five Point Follower

Don't know how many of you have read that book "Five Point Someone" by Chetan Bhagat. It's about this guy who goes to IIT where he makes his two best friends and meets his girl friend, his H.O.D.'s daughter. Talks of all the dumb things he and his friends do together.

Even before I read the book, I had heard a lot about it. It seems to be pretty popular among the student community, especially in Engineering Colleges. I myself am studying in PESIT, Bangalore as a student of Information Science. We all love the book, because it describes a part of our lives too. Plus, the informal style is very appealing. No need for the non-GRE students to run to the dictionary every few minutes. Most people talk about the "glorious college days". This books also talks about the misery and despair one goes through while in college.

I just finished reading the book yesterday. I felt I MUST share it with others. Guess the book must be doing pretty good sales by word of mouth itself. I mean, isn't that how we (4 of us are through, the others are in queue for the same copy) got to read it too?
