    when i started reading this book i didnt uite take it seriously i thought of it like a funny pass time book but my snobbishness got a badgering as i leafed through the pages this is a well written satire with layered nuances which can be understood only those who keenly follows Indian politics the analogies made me glee all through the book there is a lot to read between the lines Sudden springing of Hindi verses leaves the non native speakers befuddling overall i really enjoyed the flow and language even the thriller story line with plot twists

    In an extremely charged political season Unreal Elections by CS Krishna and Karthik Laxman offers a very candid view of party influences on the head of a government or of coal allocations At 296 pages I found the book a little stretched at times but still an engaging read It largely works as a no holds barred fictional yet satirical account of how Indian politicians and the polity works especially backroom politics with powerful stuff that leads readers to ponder over There is no doubt that Unreal Elections emerges as an unnatural contender for the most incisive commentary on the 2014 General Elections albeit in a satirical manner However towards the end when the initial laughter declines it leads a reader to think about how close to reality is the depiction of what's written in its pages

    A funny read taking potshots at all major political parties of India especially the Congress The writers give their own hilarious version of the inside working of the political parties Some parts of the book like the cabinet shuffle and the omission of Manmohan Singh were simply awesome Even the inner party fighting of the BJP and the confusion among the leaders of the Third Front is shown in a funny way The working of the media and their inclinations towards certain political parties is also highlightedThe best parts of the book are the middle overs and the post match presentation The post match presentation where all the secrets are revealed is the most interesting part of the book The authors get preachy in the last chapter but the reader hopes that the real situation becomes what is described in itGreat job authors

    As soon as I saw a book being published by the Unrealtimes I knew I can't give it a miss Wanted to enjoy every page of it and savour the moment while reading it I did enjoy it However being a regular reader of the unrealtimes I found this book of a compilation of old and new similar jokes It feels like all those jokes have been taken and finely woven into a story That's not to say that there were no original additions In fact some of the chapters were truly hilarious and totally new chapter 13 being my favourite || all are new but feels similar to old jokes But then such instances were far and few at least for me Maybe since these guys authors are so talented and witty expectations were high I don't know maybe caricatures would have been really good addition Somewhere I felt that the X factor was missingor something was amiss I won't say I was disappointed by the book I liked it enjoyed it but not the way I expected it I would recommend itOverall here is my take on the bookStory 35Presentation 35Humor 45Would recommend it to others yes

    Joking is our national pastime and there is no limit to it This book made me recollect all the jokes that my friends and I have shared about everyone around us Funny dumb and sometimes very profound The person at the receiving end may be deaf to comments otherwise he will end up having sleepless nights filled with self doubt More than about Indian elections or the candidates participating in that this book is about health and living It makes you joyous happy and makes you laugh out loud so that you wont ever need a laughing therapy

    Unreal Elections is a satire on Indian politics set before the run up to 2014 general elections Being a regular reader of Unreal Times I kind of knew what to expect from this book It was a funny read taking potshots at major political parties Some parts of the book were hilarious especially cabinet shuffling confusion in BJP third front meeting made me laugh out loud Ending was amazing I liked how the authors used Ravi Shastri's commentary Karan Johar's Koffee with Karan in political scenario The contest between Modi and Rahul was creative and fun at the same time It is an excellent read Once of the funniest I have read in recent times

    I must admit that i had never heard on UNREAL TIMES before the bookI picked up this book because i was following the elections on TV paper everywhere and this book promised to provide comic angle to the electionsThe book is good in pieces some places you really feel like laughing and at others you feel WHYThe personalities given to the politician and pretty imaginativeThe Facebook chats in between did not entice me muchalthough the book is a very fast read and provides a very good picture of the state of current Indian governmentAt some place you really feel like India needs a revolution and things like Vote bank politicsDynasty rule regional parties corruption need to be eradicatedThe thought that we have moved from British Rule to an eually bad state now is disturbingThough the thoughts were good the book was an easy read with past pace i will give it 35 as there were places when i was not impressed and interestedOverall35

    This is the first satire book I've ever read and what an exciting one it has been Satire Real events in Indian politics Total entertainment Thoroughly enjoyed Revenge of Pranab Da and Manmohan was just awesome Super human Rahul baba and dark secrets of Modi Congress syndicate the fourth estate doing away with 2002 They had it all in bookAt times it seems overdose of satire dragging a bit too far but right in the next page I would end up with a ROFL moment Must read for people interested in Indian politics Kudos to unrealtimes team Bring satire to the dull and boring Indian politics
