My Views: 

I have reviewed the debut novel of Anamika Mishra - Too Hard to Handle and even though I  tried my best not to compare notes; I could not stop myself. I must admit that the author has come a long way from where she started. I have read on her blog that she has published a few ebooks as well (can be searched on amazon), which I have to check, yet. I would like to congratulate the author for this novel.
I finished reading the book in over an hour in one go. The plot is simple yet interesting for a quick read. The character portrayal is good, though it could have been better. This I can judge from the growth of the author from debut novel to this one. The language is simple and flow is nice even with lot of first person narrative. The description of scenes make it easier to visualize.
The choice of English songs in the book is interesting.
What begins as a casual duet, Sam helping Tulip with the forgotten lyrics and progresses as their journey together as 'voicemates' ends at a point that makes you wonder - why?
This is a good book for those who are looking for a easy and quick read.
