Highlight Story

Book: Stilettos in the boardroom
Author: Shruti Saxena
Publisher: Zubaan
Price: R250

Stilettos in the boardroom is author Shruti Saxena’s decent debut attempt at penning her thoughts on the boardroom culture and its invasion by the female populace. A light read where the author has tried to bring out the different aspects of the protagonists’ lives but the treatment could be better. The storyline is introduced interestingly and maintains its pace. But it doesn’t go beyond the stories we already know.

Also, you will not miss this book on the stands, not for reasons cited above but for the blatant resemblance of its cover with that
of the posters of the popular 2006 Hollywood film The Devil wears Prada. Also, there are grammatical errors in the book that are hard to ignore.

Verdict: Flip
