Dr. Jas Kohli Plastic surgeon by profession and astronomer and writer by passion. Writing about his
profession was a big step, taking out all the cards from his pockets.
Writing Style: 3/5
The moment word ‘plastic surgery’ comes to my mind, the beautiful me appears in front of me. However being a common person I always dreaded the word surgery and the fear was doubled whenever I read posts about the ‘plastic surgery gone wrong’. All plastic surgeons appeared as person trying to be God, umm not exactly God but super God who are trying to correct the mistakes God did while creating human being. Aha, I know am exaggerating but after reading Jas Kohli’s ‘Anything to Look Hot- Candid confessions of a Plastic Surgeon’ plastic surgeries seems like having popcorn. Most of the characters going under knife and coming out beautiful than before. To delight of all the girls, boys are also going under knife to look hot. So being mirror obsessed is not just girl’s right. All those celebrities’ surgeries gone wrong posts are vanished in thin air.
Writing style of Jas Kohli is fluid. Story continues in smooth flow. It’s obviously clear that Jas Kohli has depicted down his own story and his life journey has been really well I must say. I liked it but the feature I missed was any action in the story. Story starts at Dhruv’s achievement and continues with his love life and career with few ups and downs. Writing style is notable with simple yet distinguished vocabulary. The hidden and mysterious pages of plastic surgery are revealed by him in humorous and simple way. Trust me guys, I would surely love to hand over this novel to a person who has recently gone under cosmetic surgery. At few points novel can be used as reference notes by upcoming surgeons. *grin* *grin* Prior reading this I always thought negative about this surgery but Jas Kohli has earned good cards for his novel as well as his field.
I loved novel thoroughly but novel certainly lacks action and drama. Dhruv’s life is presented so smooth without any obstacles apart from one or two but minor one. One waiting to see any major ups and downs or comeback of Manika will be disappointed.
I would surely recommend his novel to my readers.
My overall rating for this work is 3/5.
