The Four Patriots – Book review

Title : The four patriots

Author : Sumit Agarwal

Pages : 290

I am not a fan of political fiction, but this book caught my attention, be it the concept of patriotism towards India joining four Youths from different parts to becoming the four patriots.

If you do not believe in “is desh ka kuch nahin ho sakta…”

This book will make you realise what real patriotism is beyond just sharing posts and videos on Facebook and other such social medias.The four patriots will make the youth realise there is much beyond being active on social media, if one really wishes he can work towards making India a better country, it is even better when the population is in millions.


The plot revolves around Varun, an NRI software engineer, Salman, CEO of coffee moments, Raghav, a virtuous politician: and aditya, a businessman, who face one or the other similar circumstances dealing with problems in India. Fate connects these four patriots, who support each other and work towards betterment of India under the guidance of Dr.Sabbarwal.


Each of the characters have a special role, they tend to inspire us in every unique way possible. Each characters have unique likeable traits that adds on the contribution of the story.  While one is smart. the other is brave to face the wrong people etc. One can easily feel the characters, they are described the best by the author.


One must read this book to experience a whole new level of patriotism by the youth of the nation, experience the friendship and hardships faced by the youth. It is a fast paced book with an appealing writing style, the author has succeeded in keeping the readers hooked to the book. Though the book was to the point, it was boring or dragged at few parts, but otherwise a great book. The author Mr. Sumit Agarwal has done justice to his debut novel.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a political fiction / or is someone is new to political fiction this is a go to book.

On an overall basis I give it a 4.5 stars.
