Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin 'Einstein' Varghese (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.225

Dork: The Incredible Adventures Of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese is a humorous and thought-provoking fictional tale of a naive boy from a management graduate to an associate with a business consulting organization.

Summary Of The Book

Sidin Vadukut’s Dork: The Incredible Adventures Of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese, is his debut novel and the first book in the Dork trilogy. It is an autobiographical account of the protagonist’s life during the final days of his graduation at an Indian B-school and the first year of his professional life. Robin Varghese is a brilliant studious student in his twenties who is nicknamed by his friends as ‘Einstein’. However, he lacks social skills and is thus stupendously naive.

Robin hopes that his academic skills will land him into one of the top notch companies after his graduation and he will get an assignment abroad with a lucrative salary. But his dreams get shattered soon when he ends up in Dufresne Partners, a rather mediocre mid-market management consulting organization located in Mumbai. Robin soon accepts his reality and starts moulding himself to the office environment.

Just when he thinks he is adapted to his new life, a series of goof-ups start taking place in his professional life. A hilarious but serious series of blunders, errors, and mishaps make him the center of attraction for everything that goes wrong in the office. His seniors start regretting the day they decided to hire him. And with all this chaos happening at his workplace, Robin gets nowhere near his goals.

Another twist in Dork: The Incredible Adventures Of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese comes when Robin’s personal life becomes equally haywire. He is of the notion that he is happy with his steady girlfriend, but soon he finds out that fate has other plans for him, as he unexpectedly falls in love with another girl. Will Robin achieve his professional goals? Will love take its right course? Vadukut takes the reader on roller coaster ride as Robin survives his first year at his first job.

Dork: The Incredible Adventures Of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese is a humorous book that presents satirical and thought provoking insights into the marketing consulting industry. It is written in a journal style and it is through Robin’s daily diary entries that the reader gets to know the entire story.

A fine debut with a refreshingly different narrative

After writing a less-than-favourable review for Dork 2, I felt it only just to say what I felt about it's predecessor.

Dork was a much-awaited book by the Indian blogosphere, and for good reason. Sidin Vadukut is one of India's finest humour writers. Name one person who hasn't read his epic Travails blogpost and laughed out loud.

This book is written in the first person, in the form of diary entries. Brave move by Sidin, who has to deviate from his normal writing style and almost step down two notches to fit into the shoes of Robin Einstein Varghese. Does so remarkably well, and the book...

This book is written in the first person, in the form of diary entries. Brave move by Sidin, who has to deviate from his normal writing style and almost step down two notches to fit into the shoes of Robin Einstein Varghese. Does so remarkably well, and the book is a laugh-a-minute riot.

Yes, it's not an intellectual book. It's good timepass for 2 hours. There are some genuinely laugh-out-loud moments. Enjoy it for what it is. There are hardly any lulls.

If you want to read Sidin at his best though, look no further than what he writes on his blog (www.whatay.com) and his stuff for Cricinfo.

Highly Entertaining

After Chetan Bhagat became famous, there was a herd of people who started writing novels and all were based on IIT or love failures. Sidin was the 1st one or rather the 1st one who gave that difference from the routine stories by Indian writers. He just blew us away with the book. Initial few pages were such that the story didnt move but as Dufresene hires Robin, its never a put down book. SUch a highly entertaining book. Even the encounters with Robin's girlfriend was really awesome. And the climax was one of the most thrilling ones you see in movies but happens on a management theme.

Most Hilarious book I've ever read

There are some books which you can't put down because they are very interesting but this one is among those which you have to put down because u have to take a break after laughing that much. It took me 7 days to read this book and those were the days in which I couldn't stop smiling.
I bought this book after reading some of the reviews here. I must say this book is worth every penny. Sense of humor of the writer is awesome. If you are looking for a book which would make you smile and forget all you office tension please hurry up and buy this one ASAP.

The Book that makes you think like its protagonist!

Were Geese! Oh where have you been hiding all these years! I purchased this book recently and needless to say, after a swift service from Flipkart, the book gave me more than what I needed during the exam season!

Right from the first page, it is humor at its finest. Rarely I come across Indian novels where the humor quotient is unassumingly high. This one speaks of abrupt humor, the misfortunes of a narcissistic dork, how he screws his career yet sails through as a winner- Dork is amazing!
