Book Review: The Zoya Factor by Anuja Chauhan


I was somewhat surprised that I liked The Zoya Factor so much. I expected to merely pass the time on a flight with the book; what ended up happening was that I was perhaps the only one not sleeping (or not trying to sleep) on a late night flight, completely hooked to Anuja Chauhan’s first.

The story line and plot points can be predicable at times – Zoya’s love story, its ups and downs, India winning cricket matches (with a purely and at times, hard to believe fictional ease) – but Chauhan’s very Delhi lingo and colorful characters help you forget the kinks in the plot. The characters are real and lively, with their own idiosyncrasies and that is what made ‘The Zoya Factor’ worth the read for me.
