My take on the book:
Game of Codes by Deepak Kaul is a satire and parody of the extremely popular TV show ‘Game of Thrones’ which is in turn based on the book ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’. As the author starts with an introduction of how this book is inspired from the show, the reader will be intrigued to know how this thought of satire originated from a fiction show.
However, the story is beyond the readers expectations as the characters of the original show are retained as is with the same names though in a modern corporate setup. Even their character traits and behavior are retained so for those who already watched the show the transformation into a modern setting can be amusing as well as entertaining.
The author touches a lot of contemporary internet and corporate happenings and hence a lot of such lingo is used, which can be related to by people aware of these sectors. However, the same can be a disadvantage for those not aware of the show or a corporate setup as some sequences can be overwhelming and alien.
This is the third work from the author that I have picked, and I am accustomed to his quirky style of writing. The mere idea of adapting the Westeros into today’s world is exhilarating; the fun and sarcasm is on-point and in less than 70 pages, the author has squeezed the entire show content.
If you are a fan of the show or quirky short tales, then this is a must read.
