Book Review - The Bestseller She Wrote


Paperback king, Aditya Kapoor’s life is straight out of a modern man’s fantasy. His literary stardom is perfectly balanced by a loving wife and a spectacular career. With everything he touches turning to gold, Aditya is on a winning streak.

Shreya Kaushik is a student with a heart full of ambition. Young, beautiful, and reckless, Shreya speaks her mind and obsessively chases after what she wants. And what she wants is to be a bestselling author.

What happens when their worlds collide? Is it possible to love two people at the same time? Can real ambition come in the way of blind passion? Can trust once broken, be regained?

Master storyteller Ravi Subramanian, delves into the glitzy world of bestsellers and uncovers a risky dalliance between a superstar novelist and his alluring protégé.

The Bestseller She Wrote is a combustible cocktail of love, betrayal and redemption.

My Review

The story revolves around Aditya Kapoor, a successful author and banker. I finished the half of the book in 2 days and the rest in a day. The book has been written in simple language which is a plus for the book. The characters are well portrayed. 

The first half of the book is predictable but becomes interesting in the second half. Aditya Kapoor is happily married and lives with his wife Maya and an adorable son at home. One day he meets a girl named Shreya and is attracted towards her. Shreya Kaushik, an ambitious IIM graduate who aspires to be a successful author and becomes his alluring protege. 

In the second half you will keep on thinking what will come next.
This is my first book of Ravi that I have read. I really enjoyed reading the book and the way he carried the story. His writing style was simple as I said earlier. I would love to read his other books after reading this.

This book can be seen as:
A married man being attracted towards a girl and what consequences he faces. As, I said the first half is very much predictable but becomes interesting while moving toward the climax or the end of the book. 

Overall, it’s a good read and is recommended for those who love to read thriller/romantic books with simple English.
