Book Review- God is a Gamer





Book:  God is a Gamer
Author:  Ravi Subramanian
Price: 299 INR

From the bestselling author of If God was a Banker comes the first ever bitcoin thriller. God is a Gamer is a world where money means nothing, martyrs are villians, predators are prey, assassination is taught by the ancient Greeks, and nothing is as it seems.
Moving from Washington's Congress to Delhi's finance ministry, the beaches of Goa to the corporate boardrooms of Mumbai, this is Ravi Subramanian's most gripping novel yet.

My Review
I am not a very patient reader, if the book is interesting i finish it in one go and same happened with this book. I finished the book within two days.
Aditya runs a gaming company that is struggling to break even. A banker slips off a
high rise building, plunging to her death. The finance minister has made some promises
that he is finding hard to keep. The LTTE has unleashed terror in America that sends
the FBI on a wild goose chase, bringing them to Mumbai.
Enter Varun, parttime drug dealer and fulltime genius. He turns around the gaming
company before disaster strikes. Meanwhile, the investigators plunge headlong into
the shady world of bitcoins and the Dark Net, websites that only exist for illegal
transactions—drugs, sex and money. God Is a Gamer culminates in a stunning climax
where money means nothing, assassination is taught by the ancient Greeks, and nothing
is as it seems.
 Just like the other Novels of Ravi Subramanian, this book is also very exciting. I am a big fan of him and his writing style. The crime, bitcoin and suspense keeps you engaged till the end. I loved the thriller and suspense but the concept of Bitcoins was unique and outstanding.The book is fast paced and has multiple stories which creates suspense and intensity. the narration is wonderful. The author has got the ability to create wonderful stories relating to the financial sectors. Setting up the story and spinning the web around the godly banker, Aditya and building the plot with BitCoins, Facebook gaming and the usual banking stuff makes Ravi's skills was amazing. Author’s research related to bitcoins is vast and appreciable. It can be clearly seen a lot of efforts, research and hard work has been done by the author to write this wonderful piece of work. The story revolves around different countries like US and India. The characters have been well sketched and one doesn't struggle to keep pace with the narration and names.  The author has made a huge efforts and his hard work paid off well. There is not a single moment when I felt bored and tired of reading the book. Each page is exciting and manages well to create excitement and suspense which keeps a reader hooked. The story is very interesting and I recommend this book to everyone especially to those readers who love crime, suspense, thriller, technology and finance. This book will live up to your expectations.  I loved the book and it didn't disappoint me at all.
My rating for the book is 4/5
