God Save The Dork narrates the comic tale of a young management executive and his misadventures at the workplace.
Summary Of The Book
God Save the Dork is the sequel to the popular book written by Sidin Vadukut - Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese. The stories revolve around a young management executive, fresh out of management school, trying to claw his way up the corporate ladder.
The problem with Robin Varghese is that though he has a high opinion of his own abilities, he is unable to translate these into actions. In this book, Robin Varghese is sent to London by his company, Dufresne Partners, to work on the Lederman account.
His life there is complicated at every turn. He falls in love with a young management intern, is blackmailed by a hotel IT manager to help him land a job at Lederman, and his attempts to soak in high culture through visits to British museums seem jinxed.
He tries various methods to get the attention of the young co-worker, but fails. To complicate things, he is embarrassed by his misadventures with a wax statue, his inadvertently carrying his clip-on microphone to places where he should not have taken it, and his mixing up of exchange rates.
Through all this, his commitment to give his best and deliver satisfaction to the client through the brilliant combination of strategy, out-of-the-box thinking, and expertise does not diminish. All of his plans, of course, backfire. But helped by a series of coincidences, he manages to scrape through.
God Save the Dork continues in the style of the first book, a satirical and witty take on the world of corporate consultancy and management. The blunders of the protagonist Robin Varghese highlight the absurdities in corporate life, and the character’s very mediocrity makes him attractive, despite his pretensions.

God Save The DorkThe last time I laughed so much when reading a book was when I was reading PG Wodehouse, many years back. Sidin has the same type of wit.This book is better than Sidin's first book. A must read for all book lovers, especially if you had ever read/liked PG. Sidin makes fun of the modern day MBAs and their jargon, neatly. And intersperses the text with dashes of clean humour, PG style.

God Save the Reader!I was expecting a lot of satire and lot more hilarious situations, but that was not to be. I have not read his first book, but this book didn't come up to my expectations. The main character becomes highly annoying as we reach half the book. After the first half of the book, it only feels like one is watching a badly made Bollywood movie with hardly any story. I do not recommend this book.

Sarcasm, wit and sandwich of FunOkay, you want to read a review of a book based upon Sarcasm at its belittling best, quirky office culture and misadventures which some mysterious way settle like you have never expected, well you said you wanted, so you suckh :) Leave it, coming to the real deal, it is a worthy successor in sort of propelling to wish the third to come too.

Dork 2 - A Mixed bagWhat starts as a good humored funny story turns to an overstretched novel. You can't help loving the Hero i.e Robin 'Einstein' Varghese till later in the book when he becomes simply annoying. Character development is non existent which could be due to the reason that its a sequel. This, however, is no reason since there will be many readers out there for whom this will be the first Dork book they read. There is no point referring to incidents that happened in first book and that don't help the story. All in all, read it if you can finish it one sitting. Not worth it if you have to pick it up o… (Expand)

God save the readerYet to come across such a badly written book. Firstly the character Robin Einstein Varghese himself is obnoxious. To top it, the style of writing is terrible. I didn't feel like laughing at any of the sick wannabe jokes in the book.
