First off, a hearty thanks to the publisher HarperCollins for sending the Booktrack team this book. In “The Singles Game”, Lauren Weisberger, the author of the best selling Devil Wears Prada, dives into the world of the highly competitive tennis.
The book revolves around a tennis player, Charlie (short for Charlotte), who’s in her twenties. Charlie, determined to move ahead and make a name for herself, makes a pact with the brutal tennis coach Todd Feltner. Todd agrees to coach Charlie and in the process gives her a complete image makeover, transforming the good-girl into a warrior princess.
Under Todd’s rigorous training and guidance, Charlie excels at every match and starts getting famous. She gets endorsements from big brands and interviews on worlds biggest magazines. Charlie finds herself slowly being drifted into a world of Hollywood celebs, private parties and stylists.
The media goes wild for Charlie and as a result Charlie finds herself catapulted into a world of scandals, secret dates and heartbreaks. There comes a point when she realizes that all this fame comes at a very high price and that she is not herself anymore and wonders if the real her is still inside.
Charlie reaches a point where she has to make a hard choice and this forms the rest of the plot.
Weisberger’s narration is witty, funny and intriguing! This is the first book of hers that I am reading, but from what I have heard about her books, she delves mostly on topics like fame, success, profession, professional politics, fashion, celebrities and the like.
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it kept me hooked till the end. I couldn’t wait to find out how it ends and it did not disappoint! What’s more? I could relate so much to this book and I am sure a lot of you can. I’m definitely going to pick another book by the author. Meanwhile, I’d highly recommend this book. It’s an easy read.
