When I started reading the book, I hadn’t gone through the synopsis which is not very usual. Gradually the interest developed as I’m from a doctor’s family as well. Anyways, If we talk about the book – The starting was smooth which depicts a successful doctor’s life and his (Nishanth’s) modesty, his lifestyle, dedication, passion and sincerity towards his work are impeccable. Their hospital(s) being the talk of the town and the country too, run by a team of highly talented doctors – Dr Vittal Hegde (Nishanth’s Father), Dr Mohandas Kumar, Dr Kirandev and Dr John.
Navya’s Character was just so amazing. It is elucidated so well that I’m simply out of words. She is portrayed as a true beauty, who’s got the brains as well with the proportionate amount of emotions and generosity. Further the plot becomes more relatable and obviously, there’s a big suspense too. “What will happen next ?” was the question in mind when i was reading the last few pages. Moreover, the book is filled with greed, money, power, hatred, trust, and heroism.
If I say that the whole charm of the book lies in last few pages, I think That I won’t be wrong. The Language is Catchy. The Narration is Great. Saurish has done a decent job here and I wish to read more of his novels and wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
I do like thriller novels but not the ones which move too fast or seem to be too unrealistic. ‘ The Game of Secrets ‘ is not like that – Thankfully. It’s an amazing book, the language used is not complexed or filled with such a vocab which may require a reader to sit with a dictionary. If you Like Thrillers with amazing twists and turns, this book is for you.
And finally – Never judge a book by its cover or the synopsis because you never know what’s inside. This book is a great example for that.
