Double Or Quits


Double or Quits is written by Shilpa Gupta and published by Jaico books. It comes under chic literature.


The story is women centric, it talks about the struggle of a female, who from a middle class background , joins investment banking and soon becomes the top health analyst of India. The story has well portrayed the fact, that even the toughest of female, in love, can do stupid things.  Corporate is a jungle, we have all heard, but the story truly proves this statement.  The problem is that many stories, are written on similar lines.  So, technically the book has nothing new to offer. But would still recommend, as the story is well written and gripping. Nowhere, you will feel like keeping the book.
