There are few books that take you by surprise sometimes. You do not think of them to wow you or for that matter to hold your interest for long. I thought that perhaps Losing My Religion would fall in that category. I was mistaken. I could not put the book down from the time I started it and that in my opinion is the mark of a good book.

'Losing My Religion' is about Rishi Rai - a broken soul who has literally nothing left to look forward to. He was an entrepreneur who set to change the gaming industry and failed. He does not know what to do or where life will take him from here. Everything is falling apart. Till he meets Alex, an American hippie and decides to set out on a journey across India. They do not know where to go or what is in store. They just decide to take off.

Along the way Rishi meets Krya, a mysterious gamer and things get out of control from thereon. There are a lot of unanswered questions about Kyra and that is how the novel shapes up from there - with meditations on love, life and everything in-between.

The book was racy. The plot at some points felt repetitive but Vishwas knows how to keep the reader engrossed at almost all times. The characters are well-etched, though I felt that maybe Kyra's character could have been developed a little more.

The writing is racy and mostly succinct in most parts, except towards the end, where it feels a bit rushed. Having said that, 'Losing My Religion' is a read that does not disappoint at all. It also reveals fresh perspectives on a lot of things that are normally thought of - like life, freedom and the will to break out and do something different and sometimes, unexpectedly to fall in love.
