The Bestseller She Wrote ~ Book Review



I just winded up reading Ravi Subramanian’s ‘The Bestseller She Wrote’. I received this book as part of the Book Review program from BlogAdda.

The Bestseller She Wrote - A fast paced contemporary romantic thriller that deals with human nature and relationships, while exploring some aspects of publishing.

We all know Ravi Subramanian as the master of thrillers. So I had a preconception about the book because of the author himself.  Even though it didn’t live upto my expectations, I can’t deny the fact that it did interest me enough to finish in a couple of reading sessions. 

After 7 amazing thrillers, Ravi Subramanian has taken a break from his regular genre and tried his hands on romance. This is his first book on intriguing romantic tale with interesting twists and turns. First impression - the cover is cool and so is the title. Also I was happy to hold the Author's Signed Copy.



Earlier today, when I snuggled into bed, post lunch to continue reading ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ someone knocked my door. It was the courier guy who delivered me a book package. Swapping books, I jumped into my bed and started reading Ravi’s book immediately. And you know what, after first few pages, I was reading a similar scene in the book. Yeah, this is how the lead character starts reading the author's book for the first time.

This book mainly revolves around Aditya Kapoor, a successful author and a banker. Along with his literary stardom, his spectacular banking career is perfectly balanced with his loving and understanding wife, Maya and an adorable son at home. His life is quite enviable. In his picture perfect life enters a beautiful and reckless Shreya Kaushik, an ambitious IIM graduate who aspires to be a successful author and becomes his alluring protege.

Basically the story is about a married man falling for an aspiring girl and facing the consequences. This is the basic plot packed with enough twists and thrills. The climax came with a bang. The story was well paced and had a wonderful flow throughout. Never in one place I felt dragged.

The first half did not impress me as much as the second. My mind constantly works on what will come next, who is the culprit, what might be the reason behind etc, whenever I read a thriller. And while reading this book, even before something happened, I did sense few twists but not all. The climax was impressive and it stored all the answers to my unanswered questions.  The scenes were well scripted but the characters failed to make an impact in me.

This book reminds me of movies like Page 3 and Fashion, which exposed what goes behind the big screen. It also talks about how the publishing media works and ways to promote a book and even how reviews in blogs are helpful for an author. It's nice to know such details and kinda felt connected to it.

This is the first book of Ravi I’ve read. I thoroughly enjoyed his narration and the way he carried the story. His writing style was simple and effortless. I’m clueless why I had not tried his books earlier. Now I am already planning to buy his other books, which for obvious reasons that I love thrillers.

If you are Ravi's fan for his thrillers, there's a chance that you might get disappointed but then the story is not that disappointing at all. This is a cocktail of ‘love, betrayal and redemption’. I can vouch that this is page turner and quick read.

The Bestseller She Wrote is sure a sizzling read for a lazy afternoon or on a travel.

  11. Looks like Ravi has another bestseller ... and the word " Culprit" you used makes me wonder what happened in the Romance novel .????

    1. The word 'Culprit' I mentioned here is generic for any thriller. Of course this romantic thriller has a culprit too, read to know. :)
