I'd been rather disappointed with five point someone when I had read it many years ago, having got the feeling that the writing was rather juvenile.
So this one was picked up without much expectation. Primarily since a copy was lying around and I didn't have anything else to read. Keeping that in mind, I was rather pleasantly surprised. Yes its not high fiction, and yes its full of stereotypes, and yes it is rather juvenile, but it was time pass fun anyway. Sort of like a half way decent mainstream bollywood movie, so to speak!
Not bad to spend a couple of hours, and good for a few laughs.
