The book can serve as a useful reference for understanding business in a political context

An Eye for an Eye is a dramatic tale of two friends who are Olympic medal winners in Hockey. Belonging to different social strata, the two are able to maintain friendship across their lifetimes. While the two are able to remain friends, their children are at cross purposes creating an interesting narrative of jealousy, and revenge.
The story would remind you of the Bollywood sagas of the 1970s. There are twists and turns at every stage and there is the cliched portrayal of the 'dirty' world of business and politics. Ofcourse, it is occasionally interspersed with romance and gossip! The book can serve as a useful reference for understanding business in a political context.
The language is simple and most suited for early readers in teenage and young adulthood. The attempts at complexity are too obvious and the detailing of thoughts and emotions leaves little to the reader's imagination.
