2. Likes and Dislikes:
I like the way the author built the plot. Ravi has done his In depth research on Bitcoin to make this novel informative as well. It will surely help readers who does not know much about digital currency.
In some part of the story he has used many technical jargon, which layman reader could find it difficult to understand. Though story is captivating, you would be able to recognize real culprit somewhere in the middle of the book. He could have avoided some clues.
As I mentioned in earlier section , Ravi has provided in-depth understanding of Bitcoin. I like the book from which I am able to learn something about “few things”. Even though I knew something about Bitcoin before reading this book , unlike banking industry , it was a nice and informative read.
4. Writing Style and other things:
As I have mentioned in my previous review of his novel “The Bankster”, if reader can imagine a place based on description author has given ,he is exceptional writer. I like the way how simply he describes even complex things.
