  • Blurb-

The final audition for Rajhans College’s prestigious music band brings together three contrasting personalities. Vikrant, a perfectionist, who believes there is only one perfect someone for you. Anamika, a free spirit, who stands up for what she believes is right. And Yuvi, a die-hard music lover, who can strum the guitar all night long and still wake up the next morning to drop off his girlfriend.

The three become close friends and start hanging out regularly. So how does Aditya, a stranger, become familiar to their lives? And what happens next?

  • Review-

“Sorry you’re not my type” is a story which revolves around a band named VAYU (Vikrant, Anamika, Yuvi). Aditya meets Vikrant at a lounge, where he had come to enjoy the evening with his best friend Sakshi. Vikrant is a singer at that lounge and Aditya gets to know his story overnight, and also about VAYU.

Vikrant, the drummer of VAYU, is a serious guy who opens up only with his friends.
Anamika, the dancer of VAYU, has a sad past and fears ragging.
Yuvi, the lead vocalist and guitarist of VAYU, is a drug addict.

They are all freshers in college and get selected to form a band of their own, to represent Rajhans College. Though Yuvi is the lead, Anamika is more popular amongst the youth and this makes Yuvi jealous of her. Since Anamika fears ragging, she hooks up with Anurag after his breakup with Sanaya, to save herself from ragging and gets trapped in a relationship which she is not interested in. They get along well and become the best of friends.

Vikrant falls in love at first sight with Sanaya when he sees her at Delhi’s metro station but is not aware that she is Anurag’s ex-girlfriend and his senior too. Yuvi is in a four year long committed relationship with Kashish and both love each other to the core. Anamika always feels like having someone in her life who would love her like Yuvi loves Kashish.

The title doesn’t exactly suit the story, as it is all about friendship. A title indicating love, trust and honesty in friendship would have been more relative.

  • Appreciations:
  1. Perfect grammar.
  2. Good philosophical thoughts portrayed.
  3. Quotes on love, friendship and relationships.
  4. Narration is superb.
  5. Amazing connectivity between situations.
  6. Poems have been included at the correct incidents and written beautifully.
  7. Romantic situations have been described very well.
  • Let-downs:
  1. Element of mystery could have been described in a better way.
  • Verdict:

A very good book which will bring a smile on your face from page to page. (4/5)

  • Available at:
  1. Amazon
  2. Infibeam
