I don’t know if I can do a story like this once again or not.

Ajopa Ganguly, a struggling writer, is reeling from the pains of her manuscript having been rejected by all publishers. She knows that making cupcakes and embroidering handkerchiefs is not her true calling. However, she is scared to write anymore and is losing focus.

Aniket Verma, is the professor of economics who was also Ajopa’s tuition teacher once. Despite their twelve years age gap, with time, they forge a special bond of friendship.

Then a misunderstanding!

Now Aniket is back and it feel just like old times. With a challenge of finishing a new manuscript in record time and a promise that he will help her to get it published if she does, he asks her to meet him at the publisher’s office two days later.

Does she write?

Does she go to the publisher’s office?

At what moment does their friendship change?

Do they fall in love?

My Dream Man, a let-me-tell-my-friends and I-need-to-finish-this-now story, is an insightful examination of how forces beyond our control help us make decisions. As Ajopa says, it is all about ‘deep choosing’.

Me thinks

This book is a very light read and can be finished in 2-3 hours. The blurb which involved an aspiring author and her struggles to get published was what pulled me towards this book to read it.  What I liked about the book? The simplicity in terms of writing. The innocence of the heart and soul reflecting so beautifully all throughout the book. It is a very simple book with no major ups and downs and hence its beauty lies in its simplicity.

One look at the cover and the first thought that comes to your mind is, is it erotica? Because the image and the colour pink suggests so. When you see the name "My Dream Man" you automatically assume it to be romantic journey. Here began my journey of trying to know what this book was all about. Sadly even by the time I reached the last page I was unable to understand what was this book all about. 

I definitely know what it was not about though - It wasn't erotica or romance. Neither did it have the struggles of an aspiring author nor did it have anything to do with a steamy romance with the dream man. Rather it felt like reading someone's personal diary.  The author's writing at a lot of places reminded me of some of my old diary entries when I would pour my heart about anything and everything that came to my mind jumping from one topic to another without any worry about the grammar or spellings. 

Though the book lacked a proper plot still the author manages to carry it forward with her straight from the heart narration which is sweet in a way as it helps you keep going.

A decent one time read for people who enjoy light reads. 


Foodie Verdict


This book is like stuffed baby egg plant - Delicious and mouth watering to look at but you know the real taste only when you eat it.
