ABOUT THE BOOK:
“Life is like a guitar. Tune. Play. Repeat,” says Viktor, a US-based financial professional of Indian origin. He was rich, smart, intelligent, witty and emotional too, but still was lost in finding the purpose of his life. In spite of his great job and hefty pay package, he didn't feel the sense of contentment.
Then he met Kim, his lady luck. She helped him realize his dream life, sparking a love story. Despite his failure in pursuit of his dream, Kim stood by him…till she decided to move on. Viktor is heartbroken, lost again, and struggles to balance his aspirations and office life.
This story is his journey through life-changing experiences in India and USA – ranging from writing his first book to becoming a coach for cancer fighters, and then a motivational speaker, to finally becoming the Guru with Guitar.
Guru with Guitar is a book that has more to inspire than to entertain. It is a complete mixture of emotions and inspirations. Vikrmn has beautifully portrayed the plot with the tint of quotes and poems.
Although they could have been reduced to maintain the flow and balance of the story. As a reader, you will have many reasons to get engrossed in the plot once you begin reading the book.
Vikrmn's writing style is very simple and connecting. Chapter by chapter you'll find yourself surrounded by the intense surrounding that his words create. In simple words, throughout the entire story, you'll observe how Vikrmn has indirectly emphasized on the word passion.
The book teaches us to follow our dreams and to believe in our passion no matter what obstacle is on your way. The cover of the book is also attractive with the words- Tune. Play. Repeat... imprinted on it. Also, the chapters which consist the love blooming between the protagonist and Kim is very interesting.
On the other hand, I think the ending could have been a little different and needed modification. But overall it is a wonderful read, with many twists and turns to inspire the readers.
This book is a must read for all the ones who are disturbed in life or have no hope despite all the luxury in life. Also, the romance readers can keep their hands on this book. I wish all the best to Vikrmn and believe that he'll keep inspiring his readers like always.
