In a world that is too volatile with political beliefs, I am definitely scared for the book. The Last Chai by Varun T. can be dangerously close to the propagation of political beliefs. The character names in the book are too close to home which is weird yet, in my opinion, a bold attempt at author’s part. It’s like it is too real to be a fiction. In whole, I did love the book and found it perfectly entertaining.
The Last Chai – Official Synopsis
The year is 2019. The world, as we know today, is not the same anymore. Blatant threats of war by ‘world leaders’ is the new normal. Gone are the days when mobilizing armies at borders, or aiming missiles at adversaries, was a rare phenomenon.With every nation or their allies possessing nuclear weapons, victory through conventional means is no longer possible, paving way for covert warfare to emerge as the preferred weapon. New Delhi is an easy target and Doshi, the unassailable supremo of the regime, is on the ‘hit list’. The threat assessment being at an all time high, Ajay Kaamte, the director of SPG (Special Protection Group), is tasked with protecting the PM.Intelligence claims that the PM is susceptible to cyanide attacks and situation is grim, to say the least. Will Doshiji survive to serve another term or will he very soon be having his last chai?
The Last Chai – RWAT Take
First of all a huge thanks to the author and his team for sharing with me the copy of the book. The Last chai is a fast-paced thriller but at times a little too fast too. Nevertheless, each chapter, each turn of the book offers something really exciting which makes the book a perfect entertainer. What amazed me more was how the author was dropping names that dangerously resembled some of the real-life characters from Indian politics. Let’s be honest, the world particularly our country is not quite forgiving towards opinions and views as you never know when somebody’s view can ignite a full-blown inferno. so that is why I was a bit amazed at the boldness of the author
Last chai definitely has a fast-paced plot to its credit. The fact also remains that at times it can be too fast for certain scenes to register fully with its impact. Also, you would notice that at times to push forward the story, author does introduce things that might completely clash with what is being already said and done in the book. But in whole, I loved the book and felt that the plot has amazing twists and turns that made the entire read absolutely enjoyable and fun
