Shreya wrote her first book while Aditya was working on his next and in order make her book - The BestSeller - Shreya follows a path which is dangerous and unexpected.

Views and Reviews:
The book follows the proven path for a thriller.
Ravi is good at building characters and shaping their actions, and it is evident in this book as well. The way the characters are build and the way they behave is completely believable. The characters are replica of the same from real life and thus have their own vulnerabilities, making them more authentic.
Also, the way, the psychology works, or people of certain attribute, behave in certain situations, is explored pretty nicely.
Ravi came up with some interesting lines in the book, like:
---- ---- ----
"Remember this success comes at a price. The price you pay for is your self-esteem."
"Aditya, irrespective of how big you become, it’s important to stay engaged with the media. "
"If we allow others to take advantage of us, we lose the right to cry when they do."
---- ---- ----
The inside politics of corporate world is portrayed effectively.
The book makes you think that: "The chase for achieving self targeted goal may often take you on the wrong path and you may become someone you don't like!"
The way Ravi took inspiration from real life characters and incident is quite visible throughout the book. I am avoiding references to keep the spoilers at the bay.
Remember though, that, this book have a lot of "adult only" material. Actually, as one such incident plays an important part in the story, it can be justified. But, it makes the book's target audience limited.
This book is like a Bollywood Masala Film. Good writing, realistically strong and vulnerable characters, good thrills and some "exclusive for adults material" is there in the book. If you love thrillers, you will enjoy reading.
Our rating: Around 7 of 10 stars.

I'll not talk about the story but will talk about the things that I liked or disliked. Firstly I loved that even there was a switch of genre, author doesn't left his forte and that is writing a story at a suitable pace. The book is written in such a way that it should not be easy for the reader to put it down. Characters were broadly classified and made sense as they were easy to connect with. Another thing about the book is that it keeps on giving hints that this one is not a usual love story but is having something else to deliver and those who have read Ravi's previous works, knows exactly that the best work of this author lies at the climax.
Now the thing that I didn't liked much was the first halve of the book. When you'll start reading the book you will sense as if you are reading someone else's work. First half is disappointing for those who love Ravi's writing style. Another thing was the plot of the book. It was not new at all. Personally, I was a bit disappointed.
Now comes the thing that is out of the box for this book. The climax was something that was not expected by anyone. Ravi proved that he is the ultimate genius and have the ability to fool his readers to give them immense pleasure at the time they turns over the last few pages of the book. The speech that the protagonist gave at the book launch was something tremendous.
Overall the attempt of writing something different was a pretty calculative one. This book is having all the elements to hit at the box office and as the cover says, we'll soon be watching it up on the big screen. So gear up guys, as we are about to see something awesome.
Do read the book and I can guarantee that this will not disappoint you in any way.
