    Description

    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.

    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...

    Absolute Nonsense

    Bought this book with very high expectations, as heard a lot of the book and the author - Sidin. This book is an absolute waste of money and more important time.
    Has no sense, no story and even further has a worst narration. Spare yourself, do not buy the book..

    Not impressed!

    Sorry Mr. Vadukut - but relentless foolery can be a tad boring. In your previous book, you introduced something new/novel. That is why it was accepted.
    This time it looks like the same thing. And sometimes too illogical.

    Better luck next time!

    Regards....

    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 ...

    Best Humor ever.

    I don't have words to express this but all 3 books are hilarious. Awesome sense of humor. Awesome writing. Full on madness. If you fed up from boring fiction than give it a chance . I am sure you will end up reading all three parts.
