Book Review: Double or Quits by Shilpa Gupta

Double or Quits

Author: Shilpa Gupta
Publisher: Jaico Publishing House
Rating: 3.5/5

With the current trend of ‘women-centric novellas’, ‘Double or Quits’ does not impress by its look. Jyotsna, the female lead, has been portrayed as a strong and confident character. Her hard-bitten past forces the reader to empathize with her even more. Aryan, on the other hand, is the male lead who complements Jyotsna’s personality.

Amidst coy love and competitive world, these two stock investment bankers strive to adjust and give their love a chance to blossom. Jyotsna lets her guard down and gives in to the pleas of Aryan, who might not seem real to the readers.

With too much stock market detailing, the book failed to appeal my inquisitive mind. Although, the terms and concepts have been explained really well, yet the lack of editing and proofreading nullifies the positives of the plot. There are several typos and other printing errors too.

The story is not new but the writing is impressive. With simple yet impactful language, the author has successfully reached out to the hearts of the readers. The storyline is strong and the characterization of Jyotsna further adds on to the advantage.

Best wishes to the author!
