This new work of him is a different one and this too live up to his nickname with a little deviation from the usual genre.
The Bestseller She wrote is a romantic novel which has Aditya as the lead who is a banker as well as a leading author who have written bestsellers in his writing career. This novel makes a difference with the way the story is carried forward. This story revolves around a mid-aged author which nowadays many authors have forgotten. Whenever you pick a novel, that too a romance novel , you will definitely have a young couple in their 20”s as the protagonist.
This novel has a difference in it’s first impression itself. Aditya is a married author and a banker. He meets Shreya kaushik in IIM. It was not a good one and Shreya is a Student and is an aspiring writer , who wants to become an bestseller in the near future.
Aditya falls in love with the young student who later becomes a trainee in the same team of Aditya. Sanjay , the best friend of Aditya was not interested in recruiting Shreya but Aditya forces sanjay to recruit her.
Aditya was in the final stages of finishing a book and Shreya insist that she must be given the manuscript before anyone reads it. Then she found some parts in the story were uninteresting and tries to change it. Aditya falls as the prey of Shreya. Maya , Aditya’s wife came to know about the extra marital affair of Aditya and Shreya throws Aditya out of her life.
Later the story ends with the answers to what happened to Aditya’s story? Whether Shreya’s book published? What happened to the relationship of Shreya and Aditya ? Whether Aditya and Maya get reunited? What is Sanjay’s role in this?
The wonderful plot with a interesting story line moves the pages faster after the breakup of Maya and Aditya.
The marketing strategies used by the authors were also explained in abundance and the reader gets to know the process about how authors strive hard to print a novel of their creativity with hard work. It also details about how hard are to publish a book when you are a first time writer. Surely the author has to be applauded for his efforts to include this into the plot of the story and it happens to form the base of the story line.
Only Aditya’s presence was introduced in a superb way and I felt other characters description were less and it was revealed only during the time when needed. It would have made a clear vision about other characters to the readers.
Overall, the will be The Bestseller Ravi Subramanian Wrote in a romantic thriller genre and he stands apart from others with the clear and successful storyline.
A sure read for the thriller-romance readers, the aftermath of the situations after Maya’s separation moves the story stronger.
