GENRE: TRAVELOGUE, FICTION
Colorful Notions: The Road trippers 1.0 is a story based on 3 friends doing a road trip of some eminent places of India and making a movie of it. Abhay decides to do a trip on his car to 25 selected places of India along with his best friend Sashank. Unnati, Sashank ‘s girlfriend is also travelling with them to add voice of the description in their video.
This book is really unique in its way. First of sll, it’s a travelogue, a long one which covers almost all the important places in India. Secondly, it’s a journey of 3 friends where they’ll have adventures and will face several problems that arises from a long trip and also shooting a film. Abhay is one of the male protagonists of this book is a rich boy who lives alone because of his separated parents. Sashank is a food lover and all he thinks about is food and eating more food. They have different experiences throughout their journey starting from Corbett National Park to Jama Masjid. This book seemed very realistic to me. India is a place which is rich in culture and natural beauty. The author has carefully chosen the places that more or less covers the raw beauty of this nation. It was described in a really lucid way, how amateur travellers experience in their first long trips. This book was not only about travelling. It dealt with problems that we face in our lives like emotional, relationship and family matters. Abhay is a person with a typical character who had a dilemma in his mind regarding most of the things he faces like his relationship with his parents, his sudden love for Unnati. Most of all, this book gives you good vibes and a feel of adventure. I personally want to go on such trips like that was described in this story. I liked the way how the author has plotted each character’s emotion throughout the journey. This is a story with a happy ending, about friendship and gives us, the readers a message to live our life to the fullest.
