Book Review: Greed Lust Addiction by Ravi Dabral


Materialism is the mantra of the modern generation, whose motto is to ‘eat, drink

and be merry’. This philosophy gives rise to ‘greed, lust and addiction’ which are

vices within us. As against this, spiritualism believes in having ‘ virtues, values and

morals’ to live a contented, stress-free and purposeful life.

This is the journey of an investigative journalist, thrillingly revealing mysteries

of the corrupt material world. Believing in following the virtuous, righteous and

spiritual path in life, how far will he succeed in a society dominated by corrupt

politicians, unscrupulous greedy businessmen, puppet media, insensitive police,

and even a biased judiciary?

Will he survive in the midst of the powerful lobbies who have scant regard for

human life? Or will he be crushed like a beetle under a booted foot, as everyone

predicts? Or will he be able to stand up just with the help of a handful of yogis of

the Himalayan ashrams and their spiritual followers?

A novel with lots of twists, turns, conflicts, romance, emotions, drama, suspense,

thrill and action, promising a mesmerising reading experience…

The cover image has a beautiful rose where someone looks at blood stains which is all around the throne. This perfectly describes the plot and the title.

The title ‘Greed Lust Addiction: Victory Over Vices Makes You Stronger ‘ is quite relavant for the underlying story and the blurb.

The protagonist of the story is Suraj who is a journalist who tries to fight against the unethical ways of life, not only at professional but individual level as well.

Like every other individual, he himself has some virtues. Read this story of how an individual fights against all the evils.

All the characters in the story are interesting and makes the story interesting and realistic.

I found the narration quite engaging. Good language and Grammar added to the experience of the story. It all helped me connect better with the story.

I would like to recommend this novel to everyone who is looking to read something based on ethics fighting against modern world virtues. It’s unique in every respect.

Looking forward to read more such stories in future.
