Read this. Enjoyed this. But on the retrospection mode, I wonder what happened to the author. What started off as an amazing debut just turned into a different career story altogether. When this book hit the stands back in the day, the craze was appreciable. Intelligently penned, fluent story-line and a captivating simpleton thought process.

This marked the beginning of the IIT inspired love pages circulating all around the country. Some good, some poor. But this one - was a remarkable debut! Ushered Read this. Ushered in an era where this kind of fiction was dearth and lack luster. Similarly the illustrative quotes chosen here are merely those the complete review subjectively believes represent the tenor and judgment of the review as a whole.

The IIT entrance exam is incredibly competitive, and with 'All India Ranks' of , , and 91 these three are among the cream of Indian high school students. Of course, college is a different matter -- and they don't perform quite so spectacularly there. Indeed, they flame out in their first semester, and with their five-point-something grades on a scale where ten is a perfect score find themselves languishing "in the high s in a class of students" -- and, once identified as mediocre students, have little chance to improve their standing.

The three are quite different characters, with Alok desperate to get a high-paying job to help out his family -- including his invalid father, and his sister, who has to get married off an expensive proposition -- while Ryan comes from a privileged household, but has rarely seen his parents since early childhood because they have been busy building their increasingly successful business.

Hari narrates most of the story, but interspersed in his account are chapters in the voice of some of the other characters -- his two friends and the girl he gets involved with -- giving a bit more insight into their characters -- and Hari's own as he remains quiet about his own family and background. Success at IIT comes with rote learning, and Ryan especially chafes at this, complaining about how the college stifles any creativity and how nothing of note has ever been produced at IIT, especially when compared to American universities.

Ryan constantly eggs his friends on to join him in enjoying the college experience more fully, but it's difficult to reconcile academic success which requires endless hours of cramming with any sort of half-way real life.

Hari does meet a girl, but Neha is the daughter of one of the toughest professors on campus, and he can only see her very occasionally.

One of Ryan's plans to make it through IIT and still have some fun is 'the C2D plan' -- 'Cooperate to Dominate', where they divide the work among themselves, each attending only a third of the classes, but sharing their notes and everything for those classes with the others. It's unclear exactly how much time and effort are saved by this -- and how things such as the apparently frequent in-class pop-quizzes are dealt with -- but then Five Point Someone isn't so much about the details as the big ideas like the all-for-one camaraderie this kind of idea fosters C2D already has a whiff of cheating about it, but things get worse when they finally get around to taking a class by the notoriously tough Prof Cherian -- a famed ten-point-zero man in his IIT student days, and Neha's father.

I am sure that hurt. For Alok still had the signs- plaster casts cowered both thighs and legs. The feet still showed marks where doctors had done the stitches. I gave her a glass of water. Will someone please tell me? Ryan looked at me. It was time for us to leave the room. Okay Aunty? She nodded, her eyes filling with tears. Could any male in her family stand on his own legs?

Even then we made it before class began. He was a senior prof, and touted to be next in line for head of the department. That is, if Cherian moved on to something else, retired or just died.. None of that was imminent as of now so Prof Saxena was content teaching final year students how to keep things cool. We were the first students to arrive, and he was already in the class. Who would have thought fourth year students will reach early for class. In the final semester, people were more interested preparing for job interviews and MBA admissions.
