Elephants In The Room by Suraj Laxminarayanan

Two rival Gangs have hatched a perfect plan (or so they think) to rob a bank. But what happens when these two rival gangs decide to rob the same bank and that also on the same day?

All hell breaks loose!!!

Elephants in the room‘ is a story of such absurd situation the two gangs land up in.

Most of the first half of the book ‘Elephants in the room’ focuses on the preparation of the Bank Heist, the members of the gangs are going to do. And then starts the chaos as each of the rival gang members tries to outsmart the other.

Opening Lines: Nari’s destination for the evening was Ranganathan Street.

Page Count: 600 pages

Publisher: The Write Place

Publication Date: August 2018


Reading big books can be very taxing sometimes. But there comes a book which looks daunting at first, but once you start reading, the story grows on you. Suraj Laxminarayanan’s ‘Elephants in the Room‘ is one such book.

First of all, I really loved the unusual concept of the story. Author Suraj’s narrative style is very captivating. The book had both great action and character development. I loved the way how each character was introduced, gradually. Also how each character has its own different personality.

The story of ‘Elephants in the room’ is very engaging. The many twists and turns leave you guessing how this book is going to end. It has all the elements you expect to find in this extremely well written and fun novel.

I applaud the author Suraj for picking up such a complex topic of Bank Heist for his debut Novel and implementing it so well. The author has great potential and I hope that very soon I will get to read his next book.

What I did not like was the overstretched dialogues in the second half of the book. The size of the book could have been a lot less if not for these dialogues.

Do I recommend the Book?

If you love to read about a great Bank Heist, this is a MUST read!!! I loved this story and strongly recommend it to all!
