#BookReview If God was a Banker by Ravi Subramanian

 About The Book

The book is about two graduates of management studies who work their own ways to reach the top.

Sandeep is selfish, ambitious, leads his life on his own terms to achieve what he desired. And then there is Swamy, who respects the value system and morality.

My Thoughts

I have read this book twice, and the obvious reason for this is I really like it. My favorite author Mani Shankar Mukherji also writes about an individual’s life in the work situation. This book is also centered around corporate and that really appeals to me.

I really do like both the character's journey from interning in a big bank to claiming the ladders of corporate, along with their personal growth.

Both Sandeep and Swamy have very distinctive personalities, and they are very well portrayed.

The Only thing that I didn’t much like is both the man characters are extremely one-dimensional, like Black and White, with no grey shades. Well, Black and White have their own appeal; people are not like that in real life.
