Book Description

How far can someone go in the name of a game?

Someone whose game has become the meaning of life?

The programmer who created the first chess computer program is found dead under mysterious circumstances. Was his death really accidental, as the official investigation determined?

The truth seems impossible to establish when unexpectedly an unknown chess player challenges a powerful financial corporation. FBI agents and private detectives look for this mysterious player who has never lost a single game.

The book SAUGANASH, by Andrew V. Kudin, tells a story of the most dramatic chess game in the history of the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Over Rated June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do wish that friends and family of new authors wouldn't write five star reviews. It gives a veryfalse opinion and in fact readers are then inclined to lower their ratings as expecting more from a novel. A quick guide to the authenticity of ratings is to check how many other books they have read.
Now for the review. I liked the story,although it was pretty obvious what the outcome would be. The ending was pretty far fetched, but then hey it is fiction. Characters needed more depth but I did finish the book and it was an OK read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique premise but female characters fell flat September 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It is a fast read and I loved the unique premise. One complaint I had was that there were no positive female characters. Each female character was negatively portrayed, often embodying some cliché. We had the Las Vegas cocktail waitress turned Playboy model, the trophy wife whose only concerned with money, an ungrateful and obnoxious daughter-in-law, a wife who knows only about homemaking and nothing of the world. Other mentions of women seemed only to portray them as objects.

1.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, but I couldn't get into it. July 2, 2013
By Kat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping for something a bit more suspenseful. The summary certainly promised more.

I read it through to the end, despite wanting to put it down after the second chapter. I really hoped it would pick up in terms of action, but it never really did. The plot twist really wasn't much of a surprise and the characters were pretty one-dimensional. In some parts it read more as a rather slogging morality play -- the good ended up alright, the mean people are sort of terms of the male characters anyway, since the women in the story served as flat props (either walked-over, devoted wife who plays second fiddle to her husband's true passions or oversexed temptress into debauchery and shame).

And the murder is never really addressed. It's waved off in just one line.

In short, a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life is a game January 16, 2013
By eWolf
Format:Kindle Edition
Life is a game. Who has created the rules? How do you play your own game? Seems that general idea is not new, but it is worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Surprise March 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I saw some positive reviews and decided to give this book a try. It was well paced and kept me guessing. It was a fun ride and I never saw the end coming. You don't need to be into chess to enjoy this book. It's an excellent novel for any fan of the mystery genre. Highly recommend.

What an incredible read! Kudin really knows how to tell a story in such a way that keeps the reader fully engaged throughout each page. Five stars isn't enough for this book.
