    • Ravi Subramanian’s novels deviate significantly from thrillers written by other Indian authors with their settings as the dingy ghettos of Mumbai and Delhi. The author loves his criminals to be high profile bankers, well qualified company executives, first time entrepreneurs, top class academicians. His characters are not the shabby looking, smutty clothed, knife wielding bastards left on the streets by their uncaring fathers; they are men of resources, most of them young, ambitious, shrewd an [...]


    • I have really loved some work by Ravi Subramanian such as 'If God was a Banker' and 'The Incredible Banker'd then was sorely disappointed by 'Bankster' and hence, I did know that I really have to read 'Bankerupt' but I wasn't expecting much from itter all that's what usually happen.ople write some wonderful stuff and then come up with few books that would sell because of the author's name rather than real good efforts put in by author in writingBut this book was no where the laid back, lazy atte [...]


    • It is a first rate thriller. I haven't read any Ashwin Sangvi, having said that I must say this should rank among the best thrillers written by a Indian author. It read like the better ones of John Grisham. I suppose this was the debut for Ravi Subramanian. So he has brought in all his knowledge and expertise and created something really good. I had read his The Incredible Banker prior to this and that was no match to this either story-wise or the quality of writing. Writing is pretty decent. Re [...]


    • I have read all the other novels of Ravi Subramanian and loved them all. But when I was about to get hold of Bankerupt, some friends of mine tried to dissuade me by saying that it is a rehash of his previous ones and fairly predictable. I did read a few reviews that spoke highly of the book while others disparagingly put it down as worthless.As I started reading this, I realized that this book is a veritable page turner. Bankerupt is the story of Aditya - an ambitious and greedy banker who does [...]


    • A well designed cover instantly plunges the reader into the world of this racy thriller. Although the author has taken detail to an almost academic level, the plot blazes through with gripping narration.The English is sometimes a little quaint, a loveable failing of most Indian authors in English but that only lends a charm all its own, especially since most of the protagonists are Indian.I look forwards to the denouement and the many twists and turns which promise to unfold with each passing pa [...]


    • March 2008. Placement time for seniors in Campus. Someone in my operations team was reading a blue coloured book with some “banker” written on it. I initially dismissed it off as some book on finance and did not find much interest.During one of the frequent late nights, sitting alone in the operations tent I happened to give the first chapter of the book a cursory glance and it got me hooked. I still remember completing the entire book in one go that very night.The book was” If God was a B [...]


    • I was thoroughly frustrated after reading 'If God was a banker' by Ravi Subramanian but this book shows that he has improved a lot as a writer. The reader is kept guessing right from the beginning and three different tracks are introduced. The characters and the setting was definitely of great interest. The plot begins quite slowly but as the events unfold, the interest grows drastically. It's evident that the writer has improved in connecting the plot points. The issue of gun control in USA was [...]


    • Those who enjoy conspiracy theories, will definitely like this book. So far I read books by the author on banking related fiction. But this one really made me enjoy immensely. To what an extent an individual go to get what he/she wants to gain fame. Starting from the banking to the ruthless murders with the backdrop of academic dishonesty to power politics the author takes you to the world of human greed. Truly as the cover page mentions he is "John Grisham of banking".


    • Masterpiece of R.Subramanian! Provides deep-insights to life of academicians in USA. Also, highlights the greedy nature of human, who is willing to go to any extent to earn money to satisfy his greediness and save him, if trouble arrives! Plot filled with lots of surprises , twists and betrayals! Briefly, a perfect thriller!! Climax is simply indescribable!



    • Great and a quick read once u start u can't put the book down its addictive the characters of cirisha aditya n Richard have been excellent n will stay with me for long great book



    • If ever I will remember the day 30th October, 2013, I would say that it has been a complete day for me. Because generally what happens is- I spend all my day only in reading a novel if its 320 pages+ because I feel that I am wasting time if I am doing some other chores. But today, I did all my routine yet completed this book which is of 320 pages. The book is so interesting that even when I read it for only 5-6 hours, I managed to complete it because I was reading as speedily as possible because [...]


    • This is the second book which I have read of this author His first book which I read "God is a Gamer" did not inspire me at first to read other books of the author but when I picked up this book I think it is way better than his other booksThe book revolves around Aditya Raisinghania, who is a banker and a highly ambitious one who would do anything to get what he wants. he sets up a highly innovative financial hoax his wife Cirisha Narayanan is obsessed with getting high academic achievements an [...]


    • This novel will take you to a roller coaster ride full of suspense and excitement marked by the abrupt changes of circumstances and events. Once started, reader will be glued to it like anything due to uncanny ability of the author and his amazing crafting abilities. Story moves very fast and at no pint of time, one can feel that story is dragged. The best thing is that the chapters are kept very short about 3-4 pages and the plot keep switching itself among the 3 parallel sections. Also, I must [...]


    • Congratulations to the author for bringing in another spine chilling crime thriller in tune with expectations of his ever growing fan club across the world.A perfect spine chilling narration of how businesses across the world can change the lives of people, in the thirst for power, prestige, money and ego and finally end up destroying so many lives of individuals and their families, forever.Continuing the saga of the author’s banking background, Aditya Rajsinghania, the head of investment bank [...]


    • I don't think the eulogy of "John Grisham " suits Ravi Subramanian anymore.He has grown beyond that. For me Ravi is an author par excellence in his own light and accord. I have never read John Grisham and won't compare; I can only say that I thoroughly enjoyed every single book of his and that is a good enough reason for me to sing paeans of his writings.Bankerupt is simply another addition to his excellence in imagination and his ability to mould that into a simple and beautiful composition.The [...]


    • After going through bucketloads of crappy over-rated novels, my love for Novels was about to dissolve, just then I picked this bookFrom a Ravi Subramanian book, I expect hot & sexy banking Interns in pinstripe shirts, Banking Rats, A Dance of Money, Luxury, Sex & Seduction at Breakneck SpeedsHowever this time, I rather got a much less Cliched Plot at a leisure speed with plots & sub-plots which may put John Grisham books to Shame. The Main Plot deals with Aditya, his wife Cirisha, hi [...]


    • Bankerupt by Ravi Subramanian is an amazingly gripping book. And I thought bankers were boring!The first half of the book is a bit about banking and then it shoots of literally into the murky world of politics and gun licencing in the USA. It also shows how educational institutes are used by politicians and lobbyists to further their interests. The book is all about greed and how fallible humans are when it comes to money and power, irrespective of the country they are from. Human foibles are un [...]


    • This is my first book of the author. The plot was very nice and the narration of the story is good. I found this book hooked me up.Since the author is from financial industry, the backdrop of the story is of investment banking and the fraudulent activities inside those companies.Death of the female protagonist in this book was little disappointing but that's the way the story is.


    • Catchy and Racy. This is how I would describe the book shortly. Catchy - the title leads u to believe in that it would be a finance and economic book, but it's a complete thriller as u would expect from the author with linkages to the financial world set as the backdrop. Racy - the plot is racy with three different stories (Mumbai to Boston) running in the backdrop and culminating into one. The book definitely holds your attention until the end, with the events unfolding page by page. However in [...]


    • What an excellent book by Ravi Subramanian. The book starts with a brutual murder and then the story unravels itself beautifully.I liked the story because it has many stories running parallel that spans across countries and different cities like Bombay, Coimbatore and Boston with that many sub-plots.Story is divided into small chapeters which good and keeps reader fully engrossed. The book starts slow and gradually picks up pace, and Oh! What a pace it takes with twists, turns and surprises! I a [...]


    • This book is pretty good. It was fast-paced, well-written and thrilling. My only crib is that some of the motives behind what some people did weren't quite so believable to me. Still, the author's ability to write from multiple viewpoints, weave together several stories and tie things up nicely is to be commended.Also, on a side note, I found one thing slightly irritating. I grew up in the States, and so I was sometimes slightly put off by some of the conversations that were supposed to be takin [...]


    • Was quite excited before the launch of the book, and that could be understood by the fact that read the book within a day of it's release To keep it short n simple, I'd say that on the whole, it's an okay-ish book Though fast paced it is, with lucid writing, it's not the "most adrenaline rush bla bla" kind of book, as claimed on the cover page Linking tge various true events, and joining them to the world of investment banking aint an easy task Probably why the author is known as "John Grisham o [...]


    • At my place someone was lecturing on ‘Strings’ in programming that went.” In C, a string of characters is stored in successive elements of an array. Common operations include breaking them, joining them together or replacing parts of them with other strings and so on .”This put an instant smile on my face because that’s when I had just completed reading Ravi Subramanian’s latest book “Bankrupt” and could’nt help noticing the underlying metaphor. His book is like a good program [...]


    • Ravi Subramanian is someone who started with something different when everyone choose to debut with a teenage iit romance And I loved his first novel to the core What's good about this one is that it's breezy and the frequent twist and turns will keep you hooked up till the end But what doesn't work is that the human emotion is almost zero and if you are someone who cannot deal with pure business then you might end up getting disappointed Though not a classy which you will remember years later, [...]


    • After reading Ravi Subramanian's "Bankster", I promised myself to buy his next book which was "Bankerupt" when I got to Hyderabad. Though it took around two months to open the book, the wait was worth it or else I would have said it was a bad book. Ravi Subramanian has made a name among the authors by weaving Banking and thriller to create a new set of books. In this book, I noticed a writing style where he goes through two stories simultaneously. That appeared to be a new one. Well, I am waitin [...]


    • My first read of Ravi subramanian was good. His narrative skills and language are impressive and the places he used in different cities are not imaginary. Few incidents were left unexplained such as the attack on his FIL and also the arrest of Aditya's ex boss didn't seem to have solid justification. I didn't imagine that transferring money from a 2 tier city to Swiss bank was so easy and the commission paid for money laundering would be so high.A good book, and now I have started the next one ( [...]


    • Clearly better than Bankster. Though this book talk less technicality of bank compared to MIT its a good thriller. Its not heavy on subject. Its another catchy crime novel which starts attractively, opens the plot in the middle pages and ends with explanations. Cirisha and Aditya are the only two complete characters in this book. Other characters just fills in. The plot is "who did it and for what?" . overall i enjoyed reading this book . It just suited my need of the hour, not too heavy on subj [...]


    • At first sight I thought this book would as usual be with full of banking, its process, scams and other stuffs. But to be true, I was taken aback. Blending some real incidents in fiction the author had given us a book full of not-easily imaginable twists and turns which will compel the readers to continue reading. Author has also used character's first-names in some places and last-names at some places which also keeps us thinking who's whom. A good ploy.An enthralling tale
