Perfect Imperfect by Ravi Bedi- Book Review


Cover - The inanimate mysterious mannequin against the dark black background stands out in the Cover of Perfect Imperfect and from the very first impression, you know that this book must be perfectly imperfect. It gives a feel of wrong doings and dacoity with a splatter of diamonds. Does the cover give away more than the blurb itself? Yeah.
Is it too much ? No. Because the blurb gives away nothing at all.

Themes and Plot

The plot begins with the revelation of a wealthy man, rather the son of a wealthy jewellery trader of Jaipur, Samarth Jain and his relationship of a cold hatred with one of his employers, Jimmy Bhasin. What really annoys me in the book right from the beginning is the objectification of women which is such a casual thing in India, right? The theme of betrayal driven by inferiority complex is far more realistic than it should be, because we know how it feels when the neighbor has a bigger car.

Lady of The Night

Farah Batliwala steals the limelight. I don't know what the others think, for me , I have never loved any character so much after Amy from Gone Girl (Way different though) and honestly I would prefer reading about her again and she will be the reason if I ever re-read this book.

The Verdict

An absolute gripping read. For me, the pace was slow and I had to push through till the first 50 pages. After that, a magnetic field starts. The command over the language is lucid by Ravi Bedi and startles me with its compact yet attractive narration. Some loopholes exist till the end and when you are done with the book, you have a lot of questions in mind. That's one thing I love.
