My Views: Breach is a superb book written by a very Talented Author Amrita Chowdhury .This book is written in Ravi Subramanian's style .Actually this book is fusion of Pharma and I.T. This book also explores dark and deadly side of virtual existences and how over use virtual media can create problems in people's life .Like it created in Vir's life .
The author has narrated this story in a fantastic way .The story stretches from Washington, Mumbai to Guangzhou .This story emphasis on cyber crime .How things gets exposed and information get hacked and how many people are involved in this .Those people who are involved in this can easily lose their directions in their lives .So we should use Virtual existence to minimum possible extent .So that we can avert troubles that might occur .
Breach is awesome book. A very well written book by Amrita Chowdhury .It is totally a new genre written in a very eloquent way .All the characters and their emotion are described very carefully by the Author. Plot/story line is superb. Love the way she has narrated the story. Though it was new challenging task for me as Iam not that familiar with this type of genre I enjoyed reading this book. Apart from all the characters in the book I like Sandman's character the most .
Highly recommended book to all readers , who love to read thriller novels the most and to those who love taking up new challenge /take plunge in reading other genres apart from whatever genre he or she likes.
This is my unbiased review of the book Breach by Amrita Chowdhury .
