DORK - The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Verghese

I whole heartedly recommend DORK to anyone who loves humor writing. In fact, to me, it is the best fiction writing in humor in Indian Writing English in all the books that I have read so far and definitely compares with some of the best in the world. Sidin Vadukut cooks up a wonderful dish with Mr. Robin Verghese, as the happy-go-lucky management trainee stumbles from one misadventure to another, never losing his enthusiasm nor nerve, always coming up with a new idea, always hoping for the best. Whether it is the girl, the job, the top position, the flat, the assignment or anything else, Einstein has a unique way of solving it as readers will find out.

Easy to read, easy to identify with and laced liberally with some really wonderful moments when the reader has to break up into loud laughter, DORK is a must read. Sidin Vadukut writes in a style that is entirely his own and sustains the joy of knowing Robin Verghese's secret thoughts, throughout the book.

Just read it. Entertaining, and good self-deprecating style. Good humor is pretty rare, at least in Indian writing.
