The title of the book 'Chess without a queen' is very nice and gives the reader a small hint that the story must be a mystery.
Book Cover :
The book cover is interesting with chess pawns and two men figurines.
The term 'politics' always hold up the interest of a reader. And when the plot of the book is a suspense thriller with politics in first hand, the book definitely becomes a page turner. One of the nicest political thriller. Every chapter has its own twists and turns that makes a reader engrossed into the story. Indian politics are always interesting and most probably the chair game during state elections is the most interesting plot. Here the author has immensely satisfied the readers with a story that is nice combination of realistic scenarios with a fiction.
The author has excelled in plotting the various characters that are almost identical in the present political scenario.
All the characters are very nicely plotted.
The narration is very good.
Language and Vocabulary:
A fine usage of fine grammar and vocabulary.
My Final Verdict—.
A definite read for a thriller lover !
Book title: 3.5/5
Book Cover: 3/5
Language and Vocabulary: 4/5
I personally rate the book 3 out of 5
The book describes incidents that seem implausible when reading, but in hindsight, seem plausible given the madness of today’s political realities anywhere in the world.
The story line is fairly well crafted. Character build up is weak, and often it is hard to make out whether a character is really a “good guy” or a “bad guy”.
And my final comment on this book is that it could do with some serious editing by a professional editor.
The book is divided into 2 parts, the first part takes ends around 2/3 of the book, though both are quite connected. The whole book can be finished in around 1 day of quick reading, and it is written in quite fluid manner. There are enough twists and turns to keep you rolling through the pages. The first part is specially nail bitingly good where the reader is thick into the conspiracy, while the second part is more paced where the reader uncovers a deeper mystery along with the protagonist. The characters are fleshed out incredibly well, and they feel human with their strength and weaknesses.
The story itself is amalgamation of what routinely happens, so it feels realistically possible.
A wonderful read and looking forward to next book of Virag.
