My take on the book:

James was planning to let his heart out to his ladylove Jessica; he had been contemplating this for sometime and preparing with all passion for the D-day. Read ‘Cupid is an accountant’ to know if James will be able to convey his love to Jessica and what will be Jessica’s reaction.

This is a short read of 29 pages, with a single thread of James putting into action his plan to express his love. Though the story starts well, the next few pages feel repeated with same sequence playing over and over to a point when the story reaches the finishing line and the most important sequence plays out, it loses its charm. The author inserts nice witty sequences in between but they fail to save the weak storyline.

As expected with most short stories, the ending comes with a twist. The title and cover are catchy, there are hardly 4–5 characters as this is a short read. If you like short stories, then pick this strictly for a one time read.

My rating:
