House of cards is Sudha Murthy 's Fourth fiction book.This book is based on the ever changing values of the modern people.This book is about Mirdula journey in this ever changing world .Mirdula who hails from a Karnataka village and is filled with enormous energy and enthusiasm to live life .But when she gets married Sanjay--a talented impoverished doctor who quiets his government job only to start his own practice to become successful doctor .Sanjay who has sold his soul for this on knowing she leaves him .But will Mirdula be able to find her own space .
My take: Sudha Murthy is a piped piper who is capable of weaving stories which are pleasurable to read .Her books are inspired from day to happening in society .House of Cards is one such book . The book is not only about a women whose heartfelt desires are not fulfilled as she is ignored by everyone around her but also about the attitude of the people in this ever changing society .Sudha Murthy has careful described the characters and their emotions in a very realistic without hurting the reader sentiments .She has perfectly and in very eloquent way has portrayed the situations faced by Mirdula and Sanjay with ease.The plot is simply superb .Dialogues are very well written in a most happening way that keeps the readers engaged till the end.There are no dull moments in this book .
A awesome read .Sudha Murthy is one of my all time favorite author. I would like 5 star rating to this book.

High Recommended Read to all.
