Zidd! by Hetansh Desai | Book Review


Vihaan looked at the skies, took a deep breath and shouted, ‘I want to be on the hoarding outside her flat!’
Parth did not react right away. After a few minutes, he asked, ‘Sorry? What is that?’

‘She said she doesn’t want to see my face. So, now I want to ensure she sees my face every day the first thing in the morning.’
Parth took a step towards Vihaan. He shrugged his shoulders, confusedly. ‘I don’t understand.’
‘There’s a hoarding outside her flat.’
‘And you want to be on it?’

Witness the roller coaster journey of Vihaan, a college dropout, and Parth, a tea vendor, as they strive to buy the most expensive hoarding space in Ahmedabad.

The story is about Parth and Vihaan, both are from different background and upbringing but destiny made them meet each other. Both have different skill sets and high ambition. Vihaan who always focused on thinking big moves to a  hostel for his Liberal Studies where he meets Parth who was a great seller and wanted to be a businessman. The storyline itself was good. The narration style of the author was very detailed and impressive. This book is set in the background of Gujarat.

The cover of the book is apt to the story and the title fits the story perfectly. The language of the book is simple and easy to read. I found the relationships between the characters were well developed and intriguing. The theme of the story is unique and you may not leave the book without completing it. The overall quality of the writing, it helped in making it interesting and fluent. I'd be looking forward to read more from the author in future.


  1. This seems an interesting read, zidd to aim and fulfill wishes.
