Book Review: The Last Chai- Bringing the Nation to a Halt

Since the last few years, politics started attracting my attention. I was looking for a book that would be exciting and interesting to read in this subject. Normally one does not prefer to write political thrillers because it has the capacity of arousing agitation among the masses if it goes in a wrong way. I appreciate the choice of author for choosing this as his subject.

The story revolves around Ajay and Doshi. Doshi is the Prime Minister who is poisoned and Ajay is arrested. There is also a character named Poorvi who is involved in journalism. The elements like Doshi’s visit to Pakistan, SAARC summit, political pressures, over work and other related things made the story seem like real. This even made me feel more involved in the story.

Yes, I was bored in the beginning of the story but the narration was gripping. As the story proceeded; it made me feel like knowing What Next? The plot was a regular one and you might have heard or read something similar in movies or politics books. But the way it has been presented kept me into the book. At some points, I felt that too many elements have been added into the story but it was a good read.

The cover is amazing. Sipping tea; without knowing that you are at gunpoint; an amazing idea behind this. It is something what instantly makes you sure that the book must be having some good suspense and thriller element. And not to ignore the stopping pulse map at the bottom of the cover! The title is a good one as Indians are too fond of Chai (Tea). On a serious note, it is an apt title for the book.

Title- 4 / 5
Cover- 4.5 / 5
Plot- 3.5 / 5
Narration- 4 / 5
Overall- 4 / 5
