Chess Without A Queen Book Review


Queen is the most powerful piece in the game of chess and writing a book without a queen is as tough as winning a chess game without one. In the book Chess Without A Queen, two political powerhouses try to checkmate each other but the game is won by an unexpected Grandmaster.

It is a perfect example of a queen sacrifice in order to gain a more favorable tactical position. But with a twist and mindblowing strategy.

In chess, it is said that you should play your moves in silence and only speak when it's time to say Checkmate. You will experience the same in this action-packed thriller book.

Everything starts getting in place and the game of chess is about to end, but you never know when a character may change its colors.

It is one of the best books based on Indian Politics. Even if you don't love politics this book will make you run the mile. Every chapter changes the entire the landscape of the book and it makes it even more unpredictable.

On the other hand, characterization is at its best and the language used in the book is easy to understand.

Overall, Chess Without A Queen is a must read for every grandmaster out there. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!
