OK Now, Who’s My Santa by Vaishnavi Nair K – Book Review

OK Now, Who’s My Santa

BY: VAISHNAVI NAIR K

Synopsis:

The world’s luckiest people work at Infinity Inc., the best technology firm in the world. Or so they say. But even amidst the beanbags, theatre groups, free food and holiday parties, its 22-year-old employee Annika Pillai has a list of #FirstWorldWishes for Santa this year:

a) A new job (her current one requires an amoeba’s intelligence)

b) Um, new hair? (present haircut looks sheared as opposed to styled)

c) Trip her manager (that phony airhead)

d) And maybe, hopefully, oh please real Santa, uncover who’s her Secret Santa (the person who’s transforming her life, she’s passing right by, and can recognize only through his anonymous notes!)

OK Now, Who’s My Santa? is an insider account of the happiness and heartache, mayhem and mystery, anxiety and anticipation, in a Secret Santa game played at Infinity Inc. Everyone wants to find their Santas, but sometimes, what should be found… could lie within?

Book Review:

The book is a refreshing read packed with humour and wit. Myself being from the IT sector could very well relate with the situations described in the book. However, I have read another book Keep The Change (shall post the review soon) that has also adopted similar storytelling technique where the author narrated the whole story in the form of letters.

The protagonist Annika Pillai is a confused girl in her twenties and this story is about her roller coaster journey and quest for the Secret Santa who changed her life. The characters are relatable and the story enjoyable. Descriptions are quite vivid and one can easily visualise the situations and feel about the characters. The climax is interesting.

It’s a love story with a backdrop of an MNC and crisp narration that has all the ingredients of a Bollywood masala movie.

The writing style is simple and easy to follow. All in all a light hearted and breezy tale for a light read.
