Cover Page of the Kindle Version of the Book
The Game of Codes by Deepak Kaul is a book filled with snippets from the remarkable book and web series ‘The Game of Thrones’ set in the present time and era in the modern world of computers & technology.
Although first look at the title of the book suggested that this might be a storyline based on a corporate office politics involving some secretive codes it wasn’t anywhere near to it. As my eyes read further through the pages made me realize that all of the character’s name is also similar as in ‘The Game of Thrones’ with their respective roles and behaviour as well. The sole difference was that in ‘Game of Codes’, the characters’ key roles weren’t described as deep as they were in the original series.
The author, Deepak Kaul, reasonably managed to weave the chapters intriguingly with the humorous sarcasm observed repeatedly in the narrative. However, the author’s grip on the characters described did falter at several places which bothered me a bit. Furthermore, one other thing bothered me, why did the author decide to go with the complex storyline of ‘Game of Thrones’ and not write a unique storyline involving politics of the corporate world with his own fictional characters and narrative. This is one book I have come across which shall receive an extensive array of mixed reviews from the readers so not divulging details further, I would like to leave this to the other readers to develop their own opinions.
I would like to give a 2-star rating out of 5 for this book.
