Book Review: The Sun Shines Down By Sankha Ghosh

Book Review: The Sun Shines Down By Sankha Ghosh

Hello Lovely Readers,

I am back with an another book review. The book I would be reviewing today is slightly different from the kind of books I usually read and review. Although this one is also Fiction Thriller but the story line is related to Politics.
The name of the book is 'The Sun Shines Down' By an Indian author Sankha Ghosh.

Plot Summary: Shreya Basu is a kind of politician India has hardly ever witnessed and that too from a political party which has been suffering from an existential crisis for last few years. With an impeccable beauty and excellent oratory skill, Shreya Basu's shot to fame is no less than a fairy tale. But now she wishes to contest election with a powerful incumbent government at their own bastion. But little did she know about the dirty inlands of this murky game of politics. And, in this topsy- turvy ride to power, she came across the enigmatic Hector Fernandez. Obscured by thousands of unanswered questions, Hector Fernanadez is haunted by the ghosts of his past. And, to put them to rest, he wants one single thing, Vengeance. And, when Shreya's seamless ambition to acquire power meets Hector's hate- filled stigma of retribution, it wreaks war.
Unmasking the gloomy secrets all the way from the manipulative political lobbyists to the leaden secrets of media-mafia, from the shady by lanes of Mumbai to the precarious land of Balochistan- the duo challenges the power- barons inviting the threats they barely anticipated to come their way. But even the duo's infallible tactics may not be enough to save their goals, or themselves, from succumbing to their nemesis.

About The Author: Sankha Ghosh is a banker by day and writer by night. Starting off as an environmental activist with an international foundation, he eventually got into the exciting industry of banking. An avid observer, an alternate thinker, and strictly opinionated, his writings have been published in several national and international blogs.

My Review:
This book will be a nice read for all those people who love to read stories revolving around politics especially Indian politics. The story line is not at all complex and is very fluid and clear.
The book has 139 pages which means it is a very fast read and you can easily finish it in a couple of days. These types of books are great to travel with since these are light read.

The story starts with the Junaid Ahmed who was preparing and appeared for the State Service Commission examination. He was mysteriously murdered when he came to know about the whole corruption and system of exchange of money for getting a seat in the SSC passing list. He wanted to expose the scam but was murdered. His brother Faiz wanted to take revenge for his innocent dead brother, but he was also tortured and threatened to keep quiet.

The main protagonist Shreya Basu is an epitome of what today's women should be! She is a beauty with brains and in Indian politics. She shot to fame in no time and very soon was running in the race of the next potential Chief minister.. The story continues with how her whole campaign was designed by appointing best of the best people to win the heart of the masses.
The another main character is Hector Fernandez, who has had a lot in his past and has quite twists and turns in his life..

Make sure to read the book to know how the two parallel stories progress and end. What happened to Shreya Basu's political career.Will she succeed? A glimpse of our current Indian politics...

Overall I would say the author has done a nice job with just 139 pages since the story or the characters never felt incomplete. A nice attempt with a different story!

A nice one time read! :-)
