Hey Booknerds! Today i will be reviewing Danielle Steel’s Dangerous Games which released in India in March.
about the book.
Synopsis– Television correspondent Alix Philips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, a deeply private individual, Alix exhilarates in center of an explosive story that will reshape many lives, including his own: investigating damning allegations involving the vice president of the United States, Tony Clark.
**This book was sent to me by the lovely people at Pan Macmillan India. However this doesn’t change my opinion about the book and it is a 100% honest review**
When I started the book, i was rather underestimating its power to entertain me. At first i thought it would be a normal thriller but as soon as i finished the first few chapters pf the book, i could see the drama and the mystery rising.
it was a unputdownable book for me. I was shook to the core with the twists and turns. i found the book superb and interesting.
Also, I really love the female empowerment aspect shown as a sub plot. like I have read few reviews about this book and none have spoken about this underlying sub-pot which is female empowerment.
Our protagonist, Alix Philips, had to face many social rejections and her husband had died when she was young and was left with a daughter. The struggles in her life and the risky job she does make her equal to what many men can do.
So, she was an unusual protagonist and I really loved that aspect.
the plot was quite interesting and the story took a turn after sometime and I was hooked on to this book.
the characterisation in this book was quite clear and proper. the character ‘s background was shown which made it easier to understand their situation and to know them better. also, as the story progressed the character developed beautifully and that was so satisfying since I have read many books which i didn’t due to poor character development.
\\my final rating//
