It is amazing how much I got out of a single reading (and I am starting all over again!). I raced through it because it was such fun to follow Amby, Mini and Bobby who follow their urge to find their true calling, in exotic Crete.
And now, I want to go back to study those terrific creativity exercises, relish again the witty wisecracks, the light-hearted romance and the cast of characters who light up the pages. And then, it set me also thinking about my own motivations - from who I think I am (job title!), to who I really could be (wandering bohemian?) - and am I really following my bliss?!
Now to me, a book that takes you back to yourself, is a richer read. And Writers' Retreat does just that.

I liked this book right away. It is told in a light, humorous voice and is reminiscent of romantic comedies. In fact, the main character, Amby, is a huge fan of Nora Ephron’s work (think films like When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, and Sleepless in Seattle). She strives to be a writer like Ms. Ephron, turning out funny, romantic stories told in a light, relatable manner. While working as a tweet writer for a major Indian celebrity, she sees an ad for a writing retreat in Greece and views it as the perfect opportunity to spring her plan to be an Ephron-esque writer into action.
While at the retreat, Amby meets fellow wanna-be writer Mini, who is already a successful children’s writer but longs to write the next Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as Bobby, who has found success in the advertising world but longs to be a travel writer instead. The three become fast friends and spend the retreat together, getting to know one another, enjoying romantic interests, and planning their future successes as writers.
While there were no real twists or surprises, I was still entertained by this story. I found it to be a light, funny, enjoyable read that would be ideal for beach or poolside reading this summer. Anyone who has ever wanted to leave “real life” behind and pursue their dreams will likely relate to, and enjoy, this latest novel from Indu Balachandran.
