    ‘Back Seat’ pulsates with the spirit of Bombay and draws you into the very heart of the mesmerising and haunting city. A wonderful read!

  • SHIAMAK DAVAR

    ‘Back Seat’ creates elaborate visuals in the reader's mind and gives him a heady high! Very gripping and powerful. They say God lies in the details. Here you'll find God!

  • ANITA DONGRE

    Nikita's strength of character, her joie de vivre and the choices she takes make one begin to respect and love her as the Hero of this piece. Vijay, Shashank and Nikita all typify Mumbai. They all have this feeling of being STUCK but still have so much more of a fight in them!

  • RJ JEETURAAJ

    ‘Back Seat’ as a book is everything an FM RJ would want to tell you about Mumbai but cannot openly on a radio show! It's a brilliant Mumbai, from the moralz to the quarrelz, from the underbelly to the 'Macheewalee' and from 'pure love' to all the 'dirty shove' literally! Yeah! Uncover Mumbai and make love to it while reading ‘Back Seat’!

    Nikita is a very likable, believable character, a girl whose life story keeps you riveted from the shores of Ratnagiri to the big bad world of Mumbai. You want good things to happen to her. Aditya weaves his story in such an engaging way that I finished over 200 pages in 24 hours!

  • KAMLESH PANDEY

    In a market flooded with counterfeits, Aditya Kripalani's ‘Back Seat’ is a genuine freshly minted voice.

  • SHAMITA SINGHA

    … It’s brutal at times but very real. Everything is real. The setting, the characters, the story, making it almost non-fictitious. Like a rollercoaster ride, it builds up at first and then takes you down with it full throttle. By the end of it you’ve lived it yourself.

  • Sanjay Gadhvi

    Intense, gripping ... touches an emotional chord deep within. Characters you feel 'for' and feel 'with'.

  • Shashank Ghosh

    Read ‘Back Seat’ at one go from 9 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Really liked the story. Well done!
