    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.

    If you want Vadukut's best, head over to Page 2 on Cricinfo.

    I'll say this for Sidin. He's a brave, brave man.

    He's one of India's finest humour writers, with an instantly recognizable style, which is not something very easy to achieve. And yet, when he came out with a book, it was written as someone else (Robin Varghese). He deliberately HAD to be mediocre, he HAD to be annoying, he HAD to curtail his usual brilliance in order to bring out the character in the first person. And since your first novel is what many people are going to judge you by, tha...

    God Save The Dork

    The 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.

    Sarcasm, wit and sandwich of Fun

    Okay, 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.

    I finished the reading in a week, taking some 30 min of my bus journey to office and back and sometime reading at home before dinner. I had expected it t...

    Dork 2 - A Mixed bag

    What 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 th...

    I would not recommend this for a train journey

    PLOT: 2.5/5

    CHARACTERS: 2.5/5

    WRITING STYLE: 2.5/5

    CLIMAX: 2/5

    ENTERTAINMENT QUOTIENT: 3.5/5

    “God save the Dork” is a sequel to the Vadukut’s “Dork: The incredible adventures of Robert “Einstein” Varghese”. Having not the read the 1st one, I did not what the storyline was, but was promised a lot of laughs going by the popularity of the first book. However, “God save the Dork” turned out to be a major disappointment, both in terms of story as well as humour quotient.

    When I started readi...

    A nice, humorous read, tickling your funny bones and grey matter together.

    I am a fan of Sidin's work, both online and offline. This book picks up from where "Dork" left off. Really funny, shows you humor even in most mundane situations. Comic suspense blows my lids off. A lighter view at the fin crisis also educates you(If you are not already there!). A nice page turner.

    If you like comedy, one liners, brain tickling fun. Buy it!

    Loved it!!

    One of the best books to read...Robin is as hilarious as the first novel..When you feel that this time he is going to get caught..something awesome happens..
    however I missed Gouri's contribution in the novel..
    Word of caution: novel is at times too technical to understand..

    Welcome back, His Dorkiness!

    The Robin Einstein Varghese is back.

    If you have enjoyed the first book - for its absolute silliness and sarcastic take on corporate work culture, do read the sequel. Cause it promises both, plus a very typical 'value' conscious (I am being civil with words) Robin Varghese.

    Robin's in London for his secondment at Laderman - and Gouri wants him to experiment British art & culture. The infamous Dork and his diary take us through his incredible experiences.

    Definitely recommended.

    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.
