Stripes Recruitment by Luke Melia- Book Review- #BOOK17



After Give Up, Luke Melia is back with his next book about the tiger atempting the interview. As much as the theme intrugues you, author has made an interesting account of a Tiger's life.

Stripes is continuously attending interviews so that he could take a break from his present job in a construction company. Wherever he goes he is given a business card and his profile is carelessly brushed under the carpet. His desperate attempt of changing his name from Anthony to stripes didn't work. But finally he finds a way out using what which he has been counting on as insults showered upon him. The book tells the readers more about what it is, and how he made use of it.

The book speaks volumes about the finesse of the author. To execute a theme as this in a 40 page book is not easy but the author has successfully accomplished it. The book is an amalgamation of fantasy and  metaphorical reality. The character of stripes is the representative of lakhs if not crores of employees all over the world who are on a middle ground where the passion is compromised for survival. The ones who don't belong to the corporate world and feel like tigers among a group of men.

The book will leave the readers wanting more. If developed into a full fledged novel the plot has a lot of possibilities to work on.
