It’s time for my pen to speak up yet again. It’s a fresh start after a month in wilderness and I begin with my first ever book review – Ravi Subramanian’s God is a gamer.
I bumped into his If God was a Banker by accident and I was glad I did. Here was an Indian author who understood the sensibilities of his target audience. The end though left me a touch disappointed. I felt it could have been a lot more than what it was. Little did I know that a sequel was in store.
There are three things I look for when I pick up a book – A good plot, grammar and a good edit. God is a gamer scores on all three counts. Right from page one the intention is very clear – To keep the reader engaged till the very end. It’s a cleverly paced and cleverly placed revenge drama. It begins in US giving it the much needed international feel. He gives us the characters that we all loved and frankly it took me by surprise.
The author deftly places bitcoins as the centre of attraction. The novel has ample doses of drama, human emotions and romance. Another clinching factor for me was the author’s attention to details. Having been in the financial services industry for almost 5 years now I could relate to all the drama within the industry. I won’t reveal the plot or the characters here. Grab a copy of the book to find out.Trust me it will be worth every penny spent.
Rating – 5/5
PS: Can’t wait to see how it unfolds on the big screen.
