Book Review: The Bestseller She Wrote

Book: The Bestseller She Wrote

Author:Ravi Subramanian

Publisher:Westland (October 2015)

Paperback: 392 pages

Rating: 3.2 stars

Book cover: The bestseller she wrote

 

He was a bestseller… She wanted him to make her one. The Bestseller She Wrote is a combustible cocktail of love, betrayal and redemption.

THE BESTSELLER SHE WROTE is my first novel by Ravi Subramanian. I started the story with great hopes. My reaction was mixed. Ravi Subramanian weaves the characters, and action together like a master storyteller, but at times it seems like he is groping in the dark searching for the story.

Aditya Kapoor has everything a man could wish for. He has a successful career both as a banker and an author, and a loving wife. Shreya Kaushik is reckless, ambitious, and a go-getter.

The Bestseller She Wrote starts when Aditya visits IIM Bengaluru as an honoured guest, and Shreya, a student there gets into an argument with him during his speech.

Later, she reads his books, and turns from a skeptic to a fan. He meets her again at his book reading, and at campus recruitment where he helps her get a job at his bank. Aditya is attracted towards her youth, Shreya towards his glamour. She wants him to help her write a bestseller.

Is it really possible to love two people at a time? Can Aditya help Shreya turn her book into a bestseller? Can love survive when pitted against ambition, or betrayal?

A best-selling author writing about a best-selling author should be intriguing, right? Continue reading Book Review: The Bestseller She Wrote

Warren the 13th is an orphan living under the care of his lazy uncle in a decrepit hotel. He has lost his father at the age of seven, and is proud of the hotel, his father’s legacy which he’ll inherit at the age of 18.
