My view on Hackster-
I got a review copy of this book from Author Sankalp Kohli in exchange of an honest review .
The title of the book is very cathy. And the synopsis of the book has strength to keep the reader’s focus hooked at it. Honestly I don’t prefer to read thriller much, but because of it’s title ‘ Hackster’ ( It is uniqe and interesing) I decided to read this book.
Prologue did a little job to ignite my affection towards the story. When I read first part of the book, I found myself fully connected with the charachters. The characters were very cleverly chosen. The scenes that Author has created in his book, makes you feel like your imagination are coming true.
Author has brilliantly woven his words to create an eye catching story. Pace of the book is also very fantastic.
When it comes to mention drawbaks of the book, then i would like to mention one –
1. Sometimes Author’s narration was average it could be better.
But overall I loved the book and highly recommended for thriller readers.
