BOOK REVIEW

 

Cold Cock by Mukul Ranjan is about friendship, ambition, and female empowerment as much as it is about success.


In this fascinating fiction book, we follow the fates of five different young individuals as they try to survive the darker side of the entertainment industry.


This book raises the question of how much are you willing to sacrifice for your ambition. Are you willing to do everything that you are asked for?



Young individuals who are striving to make it big in the entertainment industry must read this book to understand the difference between doing everything to succeed and doing what makes you happy.


Cold Cock by Mukul Ranjan is full of power, drama, and of opportunities, but it also highlights the incredible pressures inside and outside the industry.


Being born in Patna, I found some parts of this book relatable. It will be super interesting to see this book converted into a tv series. I would love to read the second part of the book.



Overall, Cold Cock by Mukul Ranjan is a great book that held my attention.
