Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin 'Einstein' Varghese (Paperback) Price: Rs.160

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.

Totally timepass. Dilbert meets Mr Bean meets Don Martin. The adventures of this totally wacked out mallu MBA are ROFL funny. Einstein is as memorable an idiot as the character played by Vinay Pathak in Bheja Fry. What can I say? Read it :-)

You'll love it if you have a good sense of humour..

When I saw the book first, I thought probably the guy was testing the waters following the foot steps of Chetan Bhagat.I couldn't have been more wrong. It's a completely different book with a writing style that I'd say only Sidin is capable of. In this book your laugh riot starts right from page one (and when I say page one I mean right from the intro).

However, if you are expecting some real practicle corporate gyaan out of it you will be dissappointed, this book is meant for fun and only fun, you laugh at every page of the book. Overall an essential stuff for anyone who loves a good straight-from-the-heart humour.

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 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.

Sidin, what happened to you?!

Having read many other samples of Sidin's writing and having enjoyed most, I picked up this one just to show solidarity. But I'll have to admit that I couldn't hold up the show of solidarity past the first twenty pages!

The author is trying too hard to make un-funny things seem funny. I don't recall even smiling once during the twenty pages of supposed humour. However, I do remember cringing rather often. Utterly avoidable, this book!

First of all, flipkart is best when it comes to delivering. Kudos. Always on time.

So, I was browsing through the site Looking for Something Funny, Light read and then I came across this one. Sidin's name was enough to get me interested n later followed the open love reviews of the book. This is all great but quite misleading!!

As for my personal opinion, the humor is somewhat overdosed and poking to make u laugh. Hahaha.. NOT Funny. Irritating (after some time). There was one time when I was reading and thinking about the other readers' joy, smile and laughter while reading the same book. Didnt work.

So my take, yes it is funny but don't expect too much. Cricinfo is more fun!
