A fast-paced nice one
19 April, 2014
The protagonist is a typical over-worked accountant who waits for his promotion putting in long hours and dedication for years.
but a new sexy babe on the block uses her sensuality and snatched away the promotions. His life takes an unexpected turn making it very interesting and almost a roller-coaster as he goes through the HIGHS and LOWS of life and its peculiarities.
The story has a nice pace to it and it develops pretty quickly with a series of events happening at regular intervals.
Our hero quickly becomes rich and famous ... and then equally quickly becomes 'wanted' . The novel has all the masala of a bollywood blockbuster… Ambition, Love and Dhoka.
As conditions of his life change ... so do the girls in his life. money and fame attract a different breed of women and our friend is contantly surprised by their nature. Which of them is genuine and which is motivated by the expectation of material benefits is something that the hero realises a bit too late.
There are other characters in the story who play a significant role in the rise and fall of our hero. I liked almost all of the characters which were woven into the story.
The climax of the story was less interesting than expected but it seemed REAL. It wasn't dramatic like most novels or fictional works. The story did not end in a flare with the protagonist emerging a hero in flying colors with a flash of brilliance or something like that. The climax was very realistic and somewhere I liked it (not that I would mind a brilliant "all's well that ends well" climax)
Not just the climax, but the whole story and all the characters in the story are very realistic. They seem to be real to us and we can identify with them. We can easily identify with our protagonist (the way he thinks and feels; and gets swayed by female attention) and even the other characters including the girlfriends … they are not out of ordinary or so fantastic that they seem fictional characters. They are neither unnecessarily glorified or exaggerated.
The author chooses to remain Anonymous … dunno why.
