The Coinman: An Untold Story by Pawn Mishra is an incredible and an unforgetatable journey. A debut literary novel by a new talented writer. I was easily entertained by the well-written tale. Enchanting…this story took me deep into its plot and set me upon an unknown and remarkable travel. I loved how Pawn Mishra brought in a little bit of an Indian lifestyle and culture to the piece at hand. Highly suspenseful. I never knew what to expect to happen until it occured. The pages are vivid in description and the narrator point of view made me more curious as to what the magical pages held for me. My interest was deeply satisfied. The novel itself moved by fast and is set in an office environment. Coworkers are not always the nicest people nor easy to deal with…yet here I faced an entire office set of workers going against one man. This particular man was nicknamed Coinman. He always has his hand holding onto coins within one of his pockets…never does he use both hands…when he has to use both…he makes an excuse to leave. Everything about him annoy his coworkers…and they set out to plot against him. A business firm that turns violent…a conspirarcy in the works…and a spy among the coworkers. The turn of events in this exciting adventure will keep readers turning the pages and wondering what will be inside Pawn Mishra’s next masterpiece. Overall, I greatly enjoyed reading Coinman: An Untold Story and I highly recommend it to all.
