Me thinks
 
The premise of the book is very exciting and that is what pulled me to this book. Very rarely do you find Indian Authors venturing into such a genre and doing perfect justice to it also.

The plot is gripping and the narrative does complete justice to it. The characters and all look straight of a thriller movie. The author has done excellent job in ensuring your attention from the first page and never letting it deter. Throughout the book it feels as if you are watching some edge-of-the-seat-thriller-movie. In the last few chapters I was almost biting my nails in nervous anticipation.

The only slight disappointment comes in the form of the presentation on the book which is a bit cramped up with no spacing for paragraphs but gradually as you get used to the pattern you don’t find any problem in reading it with ease. The other minus is the use of MBA jargons which perhaps a Non MBA might not be able to connect with at the level an MBA can.

Over all a must read for the plot of it and sheer narration.

Foodie Verdict

 
The book is kadhai paneer - delicious and has a distinct Indian Flavour despite all the fancy presentation.
