    Description

    Ravi Subramanian's God is a Gamer is a thriller novel. It is set in the world of digital currency and the clandestine realm of the Dark Net.

    Summary of the Book

    Aditya is an entrepreneur, running his own gaming company. The arrival of a part-time drug dealer and full-time genius named Varun turns Aditya’s struggling company’s fortunes around. However, things are not as they seem. A banker slips from the rooftop of a high-rise building and falls to his death. A finance minister with his heart on his sleeve discovers that he has made some promises which will cost him far too much. An explosion in Washington D.C. leads the FBI to a chase in Mumbai. The investigators begin to plummet down a world where bitcoins are the only meaningful form of currency. Here, everything is governed by the Dark Net, a group of nefarious websites dealing with illegal transactions. In this world, God is a Gamer, martyrs are villains, the hunters become the hunted and the ancient Greeks teach the secrets of assassination. In this new novel, nothing is what it seems.

    Don't keep high expectations

    Well if you want a light and easy story this would do.

    English usage: 2/10 ( if you read George RR Martin,Salman Rushdie,Amish Tripathi or similar author you find the English usage mediocre )
    Story: 4/10 ( nothing new, Bit-coins in story made it look good nothing more )

    No surprises in the story and no point in the story where you would say "Ohh I never thought this"

    Hope my review helps

    The plot is a hooker (pun intended) :P

    Ravi Subramanian, I’d say, could be India’s answer to Sidney Sheldon! The plot is amazing and keeps you hooked till the last page.

    For people not familiar with networking and the concept of public and private keys, it may be difficult to sustain through the first few pages. But as you read ahead, eventually, you start to get what these are – at least enough to not spoil your reading experience. Subramanian constructs a labyrinth with each word he writes. What I liked was how very clean he is...

    A Dangerous Game

    In his earlier novel author Ravi Subramanian dealt banking and education. This time it looks into the cyber crime with banking which has become a matter of great concern all over the world. The novel should be a thriller for the new gen and a book with loads of information on the good and bad sides of electronic media and plastic money to the older generation of readers.

    Unquestionably, a good read!

    Worth It!!

    Man i pre-ordered the book. At that time the cost was around 200+. N now its only 119. :(

    Though it was worth the buy.Probably the worlds first Bitcoin Thriller.

    A good thriller is one where the page turns by itself, and this surely did.

    Cummon make a movie out of it already!! Ravi Subramanian u listining!!
