Tiasha: I am very annoyed.
Aakaash: That’s your job, Tiasha. Good that you are doing it well.
Tiasha: And I am very serious.
Aakaash: When are you not!
Tiasha: Argh! I hate you, Aakaash. 
Aakaash: Thank God for small mercies! 
Just like a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes the sizzling chocolate brownie delicious, these best friends complimented each other. A chef by passion, Tiasha jumps and waves through her professional choices, while Aakaash, the witty stand-up comedian, knows exactly what he wants.
He was the tranquility which refugees crave to stay in and she was the refugee, who wanted to wander and explore. Imperfect Misfits is a story of perfect misfits, food, frolic, emotions and their endless imperfections.
The question is, will their friendship survive through this wavy journey of love?

Imperfect Misfits, as the name suggests is a story of two people who entirely different yet suitable for each other. This book is a story of Tiasha and Aakaash. They are best friends, who (like so many boy-girl bffs) are in love with each other. They are opposite ends of a pole, yet they are together. This is a story of love and friendship, and how things turn upside down when two come together.

What I liked about the book is its story. Thinking about plot, it is rather common but the way it has been narrated, in conjunction with so many anecdotes, makes it different and enjoyable.

Characters of the story are built and described very well. Few chapters and you are already hooked to them.

What I didn't like about the book is the author narration in between. All throughout I wondered what was the purpose of them... they only disrupted the flow and to be honest, irritated me! I had to skip them throughout.

Another aspect I didn't like was at times story was too dragged. And I had to put it down for sometime and then continue. The flow was fine but it could have been fast-paced.

Overall it is an okay read. My rating for it is 2.5/5

Lots of love
