5 Point Someone

I always wanted to have the experience of staying in a college hostel for some years. Never got the chance. Life at Buffalo came quite close ....but not really though. It was obvious that I would like this book from the description. But it did live up to its expectations for me. Comparable to Anurag Mathur's The Inscrutable Americans, but I liked this one better

The author says that its a story about the life at IIT and what not to do at IIT. I think more than IIT, it was a story of a thick friendship between 3 friends, Hari, Ryan and Alok, totally different from each other, all the masti that they do and all the stuff they go through.

Its a pretty light book. Do read it if you haven't

amazing book aahe. i got it frm india, also got: one nite @ the call center....and i wud rate '5 point someone' as a better read.

I hv read 'the inscrutable americans' way bak, even b4 coming here. and thts a good time to read. you can actually correlate to the things u see in USA. eg: stop signs, the small post boxes etc. this was more humorous as compared to 5 pt. someone.

@sal: 5-pt someone, mere se mil jaayega. inscrutable americans bhi mere paas tha, lekin andy ganesh ne dhaap liya.

i guess i cud use a light book, after all the stuff i have been reading lately :-)

@saloni: wud recommend IA...esp for those who have been here while

@subir: i dunno how hostle life was..but i guess what we did here was not less, maybe even better, coz we had even more freedom

@sumedh: keep 5PS, hum log aa rahe hain soon, and then i guess there is a long line in buffalo waiting for tht book.
