MY REVIEW: I was kindly provided with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The story is about Vishy, a young man from Chennai. Vishy qualified as a Mechanical Engineer but now dreams of becoming an IAS officer. In order to fulfil his dream, he needs to clear the UPSC exams.
After failing on his first attempt, Vishy now joins coaching classes to help him prepare for his next attempt. Vishy is now helped along his journey by his parents, his friend and love interest Rithika, his friends and teachers of his coaching classes.
The story brings to life the numerous pressures faced by the aspirants to attempt to clear the UPSC exams, one of India’s toughest exams. Will Vishy be able to withstand the pressure and crack the UPSC? The reader needs to read the book to find out.
If you are looking for a breezy and light read, I will certainly recommend this book to you. People of all ages can certainly understand and enjoy the book.
