Novel readers have a particular genre of their own choice and if you like a light thriller and a number of twists and turns then honestly, you will not regret picking this one out of the shelf. As you read this, a flurry of thoughts run through your mind, right from wondering how different this book is going to be from the umpteen other books you have browsed and shortlisted, to what might be the USP of this particular novel, and if its really worth your money and how different this book will be from the others that you have read or whether as a budding writer- Daniel Paul Singh makes it worth your while or not…wait, did you just read what was going on in your mind? That’s exactly what happens to the protagonist of this novel, Robin.
Robin is a boy next door, who leads a happy life with his wife for two years, Diana. One unsuspecting evening, Diana goes missing from her office. Perplexed and worried, Robin runs amuck like a maniac in search of her, only to receive a call from a stranger calling himself as Loser. The Loser gives Robin 11 hours to find Brindha, who is Robin’s former crush. Having no clue on where and why he has to find her, who the Loser is and where Diana is held captive, Robin begins his breath-taking adventure along with his tech savvy best friend Prabhu, only to realize that every single thought of his is being monitored. As the clock ticks, the men pull a trick or two from their sleeves and try to stay ahead of the Loser, but can they really outsmart him ? Will Robin find Brindha, save Diana and above all is Prabhu worth his trust?
This book gives you a rollercoaster of emotions and a quantum of thoughts race in your head. On one page you may credit yourself to have reached the conclusion but the next paragraphs brings you back to square one. You again feel like you’ve reached the end but again the writer plunders your enthusiasm by twisting the plot in an unimaginative way. In my opinion, this book is a hard-to-put-down one and you will truly like it.
