Review of Daredreamers : A startup of superheroes

BLURB:

India’s first start-up of superheroes with a mission of saving lives is here to kick ass.

Rasiq is riding the highs of life thanks to his successes as an investment banker. But his arrogance soon gets the better of him and he ends up losing everything he holds dear. Managing to salvage only his grit from the wreckage, Rasiq reboots his life and teams up with five uniquely talented superheroes to start a rescue venture

– DareDreamers.

These superheroes Nick: a crazy inventor; Halka: an inhumanly strong man; Arjun: a champion shooter; Natasha: a Bollywood stunt-double; Dr. Vyom, a medical Sherlock Holmes; and, of course, Rasiq: the mastermind combine their unique talents to deliver spectacular rescue operations. Their skyrocketing success, however, comes at a price an enemy hell bent on tearing down their fame and reputation.

Will DareDreamers defeat its wily adversary? Or will it become yet another failed start-up?

Treachery, action and adventure come alive to make DareDreamers a page-turner.

MY REVIEW:

What are the odds of five people from different professions coming together to launch a start up? Well, that is the outline of this book.

It is like a trigger or an experience that gives you the drive to make you think out of the box. It makes you want to be independent. Gives you the boost or confidence to come up with something new.

Rasiq, a graduate from IIT and IIM gets placed in an investment banking firm. What initially gave him the feel of the only student to be recruited to the firm, that gave him a sense of pride, took a complete detour and made him realize perhaps those who weren’t chosen for the position were luckier.

The work pressure was immense, adding to it was the rage among the peers to allot him work. Though he did make quite a lot of money, it did not give him the feeling of happiness. His love life became a mess since he was unable to devote time to his girlfriend Ruchika.

Rasiq learns to spend and enjoy from his superior. Over a point of time, he quits and gets back home. The immense pressure from his father builds up and one day he met up with an accident which is where he gets the spark to launch a startup.

And his team of five are: Halka, a strong bodybuilder. Natasha, an acclaimed stuntwoman in Bollywood. MD Vyom, a medical practitioner. Arjun, a sharp shooter. Nick, the crazy inventor.

So, they get their first assignment which was successful, and they keep getting a few more down the lane. This is when their competitor comes into the picture, and plays a spoilsport. How they come out of it is the remaining plot.

The narration was simple and intriguing. A lot of emotions were brought into the plot- romance, friendship, action, sympathy, suspense.

The vocabulary used was simple and does not require any lookup. The pace was well-maintained throughout the book.

The pro, in the beginning, is a notable mention. The editing was perfect.

The cover design gives you a snapshot of what’s the book about and not to mention the efforts that went into the title. All this put together has given a great output. Kudos to the father-son duo.
