8 Days A Week : A story of a salesman, Ron who is an IIM graduate and who got a job at IFICI Bank. How his life takes turns and twists during his professional career is what you'll be looking at in this beautifully written novel.
Expectations are always higher when it comes to doing a job in corporate sector but reality hits you soon. And it hits you hard.
Same goes for Ron, the protagonist. His assumptions were goings by leaps and bounds but what he received was a full package of grief sugar coated with attractively secured future.
Reading about a salesperson's day to day life and getting to know the profession was quite an experience.
I'm certain that the youth will be attracted a lot towards this book. More to that it was an easy but impactful read. It can be finished in some hours but its effect will stay with the reader for a while and influence his thoughts about career in a better direction.
The writing style is facile and straightforward. You can see yourself getting drawn to it within minutes. Some editing would do wonders with the next editions. The title was the most interesting thing. Most of us live like this without realizing it. The author has successfully written his encounters and tuned them in fine episodes.
I congratulate the author for penning down his thoughts and sharing it with the enthusiastic readers.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a book during a train ride.
There's no definition of Holiday in his life.
A blend of professional and personal life. Banking and Relationships.
Rohan, a recent graduate from IIM gets a job in a high profile company as a sales person.
Though decent salary and 2 months internship get his excitement up about his profession but he soon starts to see it as a hindrance in his life.
In order to cope up with it, he takes some daring decisions.
But will it be bold enough to give new dimensions to his career?
Or will his life will remain same as always?
The theme of 8 Days a Week was completely new for me because I had not read anything about a salesperson before.
It was nice to know about their profession and work culture. His day-in, day-out busy and hectic schedule was something I could relate with.
Anyone who has dreamed of doing an MBA from IIM would be thrilled to to read about his college days. His office days were gripping and fast paced too.
Some witty dialogues, unexpected turn-outs of events, sarcastic lines will crack you up.
I was expecting this book to be about only banking and what kind of job a sales person do, what are the situations he goes through.
This professional aspect has been drawn neatly by the author but I would humbly suggest that a lot could be done better in the emotional aspect of it. Because as a mixture of both of these field, it could have been a super combination.
I wish the author all the luck and hope to see his upcoming works.
Verdict : If you want to read a light and entertaining read. You've got this.
The title reveals a lot what the book is going to be in very short spell. I loved how author has glorified all the characters.Everything was defined very well. The author has brilliantly woven his words to create an eye catching story.
But when it comes to mention drawbacks of the book then i really need to say that this book is one time read. And yes, sometimes author's narration fails in describing the scenarios. Sometimes the story feels boring because author has streched few scenarios for too long.And yes i foud few editing istakes too.
But overall a good attempt by Author.
