On the cover: What happens when you cross gamer, banker, politician and terrorist with virtual money?
From the bestselling author of If God Was a Banker comes the first ever bitcoin thriller. God Is A Gamer is a world where money means nothing, martyrs are villians, predators are prey, assassination is taught by the ancient Greeks, and nothing is as it seems.
Moving from Washington’s Congress to Delhi’s finance ministry, the beaches of Goa to the corporate boardrooms of Mumbai, this is Ravi Subramanian’s most gripping novel yet.
Review: After having read and reviewed The Bankster, I was eager to grab the latest offering by India’s numero uno thriller writer, Ravi Subramanian. And I am glad I laid my hands onto the thriller ride that the book ‘God Is A Gamer’ has indulged me into.
Forget turning pages, this book will make you sit and ponder, what next? with questions like Now what? What next? Who will it be? erupting in your mind constantly as you read. And still as you keep guessing, you will be hit with a twist every now and then until the author gives his final twist which makes you go Wow!! Yes, it was exactly how I exclaimed after completing the book in flat 6 hours.
God Is A Gamer is the first book about virtual currency termed as ‘Bitcoins’ which has taken the world by storm and is touted to be the future currency.
I will not go into introducing how the plot starts and evolves, for it will mar the enthusiasm that comes with reading a thriller. The author has weaved a tight thriller through this virtual currency in a superb way which deserves every applaud. The impressive and strong characters, tight plot, the way he has weaved them without leaving anything loose, the twists and more importantly the extensive research he has done on ‘Bitcoins’ shows completely in this pot boiling thriller. Infact, he has even explained in detail about bitcoins as well as the other aspect which the book talks about, the gaming.
Going by his previous books, one might feel that this book will talk about banking but it isn’t so. For a change this book talks less of banking and more of crime, thriller, sex, love, drugs, investigations and bitcoins which I as a book adorer and a fan of his writings love even more.
And for all those who like reading thrillers, I don’t see any reason that can stop you from reading this book. So fasten your seat belts and get ready for a thriller of a ride that will leave you craving for more!!
