Book Review: The Broker

Image
John Grisham wrote one of the finest novel and I have loved his work. Hence, I picked up another edition of his thriller - 'The Broker'. Based on the review, it sounded very good and secretive, but honestly, I didn't find it that good compare to his earlier books like A Time To Kill, Runaway Jury to name a few. The story starts with a bang, it instantly grips the reader with many questions. But as the story develops it reaches a stagnant stage where the reader (at least me) felt bored and lost interest. The only thing kept me reading was the big secret. Obviously I won't reveal here what it is. For that, please read 'The Broker' :D   Broker talks about Joel Backman is "the Broker" who is one of the big broker-lobbyist in Washington DC, USA. He is well connected with  influential people within the government and made big money in a very short span time.

So many things in our life, we take it for granted till the time we realise how important it is. I came to this realisation when I took my health for granted and it hit me back at the wrong time. Result – I am missing the thing I love the most. So while sitting at home doing nothing and missing on big fun, I saw that so many of us do this. We take things for granted, we take people for granted, we take their emotions for granted and what not. In our journey called life, we have started talking it lightly and made it complicated. When we can’t solve these complications created by us, we think of ending it. I have heard of cases where people have taken their life for granted and ended it because of something or someone. A happy going guy suddenly jumps from his room on 11 th floor; a struggling actress ends her life by hanging herself. I try and try but fail to understand, how one can take their life for granted and decides to end it? Do they think of consequences, do they think
