What Kitty Did: Book Review



Set in Delhi winters, it is the story of Kitty and her adventures or rather say misadventures in life till she get that jolt for a future so beautiful after that. 

Kitty is synonymous to all the troubles she walks with, inviting them in wherever she goes. Her love life is trouble so is her paycheck, well peanuts. Her hair is struggle so is her drinking problem. She says she ain't alcoholic but seem so. To top it off, her pushy mother has set her up with a gorgeous but stuck-up guy who is sending her mixed signals. 

When a diplomat’s celebrity wife, Roxy Merchant, falls dead during dinner at their posh central Delhi bungalow, Kitty’s boss gives her a chance to write a profile piece (fashion piece) with a hint of promotion. As she works on her article, Kitty realizes there’s more to Roxy Merchant’s death. She’s on to something big, and it can, perhaps, change her current life forever. But Kitty also has a knack for bungling things up majorly.

The Review

A good, funny story and its characters but little jumbled up, only if the story was weaved in a little better way it could have been the best. No sauce until you reach 100th page or so, but this kind of story can be used and made in to a movie with little editing. Kitty is strong and is the protagonist, is funny and charming, would wanna have some cake she makes :)

I loved the ending but not how it ended, in a hurry. Would love to see it developed in a movie for sure.
