Book Review : The Zoya Factor By Anuja Chauhan

The Zoya Factor‚Äôs tagline in its first cover read ‘All’s fair in love- and cricket’. In a cricket worshiping nation like ours, the tagline is sure to intrigue readers. The genre of the book is chick-lit and is a light read.

The Theme is about an advertisement executive working at the AWB who works with brands like Zing Cola (Think- Pepsi). For the unintended, Zoya had to leave behind a Zing ad shoot with her favorite Shah Rukh Khan and go to Dhaka to shoot the Indian Cricket Team for a Zing Champions Trophy ad. Though having no interest in cricket, she still managed to dwell among the eleven and falls head over heels in love with the captain Nikhil Khoda. The book continues introducing Zoya Solanki as the lucky mascot for the team as they never lost a single match when she dined with them.

‘Ya-ya, people who lived, ate and dreamed cricket. I wouldn’t cut off any body part for the dumb game, except maybe the extra two inches of subcutaneous fat on my cheeks’.- This is how she actually feels about the game.

The Zoya Factor discusses superstitions the country acknowledges and how cricket, just being a sport, has so many devotees here that people can’t even get one international loss down their throat. I liked Zoya’s character for one because I could relate to her. But I guess that’s what books do to you, you feel you are the protagonist and start imagining the scenes as would have happened to you.

If you have always believed that sitting on a couch in one position through the 50 overs will help India put forward a competitive total on the score board, then this is a must read for you.
