It had been a long time since I had revived a thriller, which is why the thought of reviewing Eight Hours excited me to the core. Upon receiving the book penned by Upendra Namburi, the first thing that stuck me was that the title and the cover page both aptly reflected the adventure and excitement that was concealed within its pages. And soon after I had turned the first few pages, I knew that this book was going to turn out to be a winner.
Aratrika Reddy, is a strong a wise leader trying to save her business empire from certain bankruptcy and the greedy clutches of both family members and outsiders. Coming from a broken family and harboring a deep hatred for her father, who established the empire in a corrupted manner, Aratrika has just 8 Hours to fight off the vultures and save the business. From 3 major competitors to her con-man of an ex-husband and even her father’s brother and her father himself, Aratrika is forced to follow a path least preferred by her in order to vanquish all her enemies within the limited time.
8 Hours is an extremely unusual book that unravels the deepest, darkest and dirtiest secrets of the corporate world. Upendra deserves all the praise for writing the book in such a manner that despite revolving around the topic of commerce and economics, it consumes the mind of the readers completely. Although, the initial chapters might seem confusing for readers with little knowledge of commercial terms and concepts, things clear out towards the end. The book proves to be a really interesting read and the unusual climax is especially something that readers need to look out for. I really found 8 Hours far above my expectations in terms of thrill and entertainment and wish Upendra all the best with its success.
