A MUST READ – The Accidental Apprentice by Vikas Swarup




       –  By Sahithya

PLOT: 5/5

What would you do if out of the blue someone offers the CEO chair of their company to you? Speechless, right?

That is what the story about this book is all about. The extremely gripping story plot, the relatable characters, and the wit and details of the books make it worth the reader’s time. This story revolves around the life of a simple salesgirl Sapna Sinha. The story starts with a billionaire Vinay Mohan Acharya asking her to become the CEO of his $10 billion company. But the catch isn’t easy, she is given seven tests to pass to secure her position as the CEO. These aren’t any of the easily written tests are interviews but these are the various challenges life throws at her. What follows is a series of mishaps and adventures, each of which turns out to have been part of the apprenticeship.

The way she overcomes each of these would determine her chance to hit the big lottery ticket. This page-turner moves at a fast pace and I am sure you wouldn’t want to keep down the book until you finish it. Throughout the plot the author has brilliantly used many present-day challenges that India faces like Khap Panchayats, Acid attacks, illegal killings, like child labor, sexual assault, illegal Organ Donations, and Corruption etc. The book is divided into 7 chapters, each chapter dedicated to each test. With a lot of different characters throughout the book the story will surely not let you get bored. The coincidental incidents in the book it beautifully scripted and each character’s personality falls perfectly into place and their role is justified brilliantly in the book. There are no loose ends left in this book. Everything is perfectly written with a precise backstory and a connection. This book leaves you flabbergasted, astounded, exasperated and you would keep going back to the story for days together.

So if you are looking for a really good book that would keep you engaged during this time you should surely read this one. Happy reading Bibliophiles!!!
