‘Along The Way’ by TGC Prasad is a novel about Software Engineers by a Software Engineer. With strong vibes of TCS and its work culture reflected in a surreal way in the novel, this Software Engineer reviewer also found it equally enticing and interesting, to say the least. FYI, even the company being the same, no wonder the review also is going to be in a positive note. No kidding. :)

When Rupa Publications takes up a book, which appears to be like any other chick-lit novel, you know there’s an undercurrent and you become restless to find out the actual reason behind the same. This book did not have any marketing gimmicks to inflate sales, unlike our mass-popular writers like Chetan Bhagat and Durjoy Datta. The novel made it a point to stay mainstream. With quality writing and a gripping storyline it did exactly the same. I, as a reader, love this approach and hope more and more writers think this way.

‘Along The Way’ has way too many protagonists. And yet the writer did a good job handling each of them with utmost care. Like the mother of seven who does not want even one of them to grow up to be a spoilt brat.

The author puts up an insider’s view of the Software Industry like many other authors previously tried but could not manage to. Perhaps his seniority helped, with which comes the maturity (wisdom) to know (realize) where to stop or apply brakes. You don’t go overboard with something as security-panicky as the Software Industry scenario in our country and readers with the same background will recognize the author’s effort about the same.
