Review of Let the Game Begin

Let the Game Begin by Sandeep Sharma

Frankly speaking not a very good read but a mediocre one. I would give 3 out of 5 stars.

The plot is fairly interesting which has a blend of history with today's world. Along with this, we have a Serial killer in the present era who may be having ties to the happenings in the bygone era. Author has managed to create an exciting premise bus has faltered to keep the readers engaged.

I feel the reason being not completely involved is that the book is divided into many number of chapters. These chapters are small as well. As soon as you feel you are getting a hold over the characters and the situation, the chapter ends. At times it makes us reluctant to continue and hence the involvement is gone.

Reiterating what I said earlier, the story-line is good but the execution has failed but not miserably though. Chain of events takes place in the 2 kingdoms some thousands of years ago which spells doom for a kingdom. In the current day a serial killer strikes who is leaving clues which may have a connection to the past. What is the connection between the events which took place eons ago and the current day Serial Killer forms the primary plot. There is a romantic angle also which I felt was not needed.

Character building is good but there is confusion at times when there is an oscillation between the past and the present.

Book ends in a surprising situation which paves way for the Second part of this book.

What is the motive of the Killer? How he chooses his Targets? In all of this, what is the connection of a game of Chess?

To end your quest for answers, read and enjoy....

Happy Reading!!!
