My Review

What will you choose if you are caught between a team of goons, your sister's dignity and professional ethics? What will you choose if you are caught between your brother's dilemma, your sanctity and romantic emotions? The story of love, money, betrayal, sex, brilliance, debauchery and trust, twenty twentyis tale of new generation for the new generation by  a new generation writer.

Abhi never expected that his foray into the stock market will land him in major trouble. Caught between her brother's greed, and inefficiency, Aditi too becomes a part of the game. They have twenty days to arrange twenty lakhs and get out of the whole trouble. How would they? Or would they succeed at all?

Twenty Twenty is  fast paced tale prominently based on the intricacies of technology. How Abhi tries to arrange the money is exciting to see considering the technological brilliance narrated convincingly. How Aditi tries to arrange, disappointed me. spoiler alert-watchout for spoilers, without which it's difficult for me to explain. The two female characters Aditi and Alka gains their needs through  debauchery. Even though there were passages about respecting women and similar stuff, the whole theme of the book, for me, sounded misogynistic. Why? Aren't women capable of getting promotions or arranging money through any other means?

The lack of ethics seen in the current generation is reflected through the book. The mind games are worked out decently. Though the twist in thw climax was expected,  the twist after the twist was a surprise.
Overall the book is a one time easy read
