The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You Reviews

  • Carla Suto

    THE NEAREST EXIT MAY BE BEHIND YOU by Amulya Malladi is an insightful and inspirational book that drew me in and kept me engaged from beginning to end. It is told from the point of view of forty-year-old Asmi, a successful marketing executive in a global corporation who suddenly finds herself embroiled in a battle with a male colleague for the next rung in the corporate career ladder.

    THE NEAREST EXIT MAY BE BEHIND YOU by Amulya Malladi is an insightful and inspirational book that drew me in and kept me engaged from beginning to end. It is told from the point of view of forty-year-old Asmi, a successful marketing executive in a global corporation who suddenly finds herself embroiled in a battle with a male colleague for the next rung in the corporate career ladder. She finds herself questioning her priorities and her abilities as well as her choices to date to emphasize her career over close relationships and family. The reader takes the journey with Asmi as she looks for balance in her personal and professional life. The scenarios Asmi faces in a male-dominated workplace and culture are portrayed with honesty and intelligence. The dialogue is sharp, often humorous and witty. I loved seeing Asmi find her strength, taking a firm stand for herself and the other women around her. I enjoyed this unique and timely novel and highly recommend it. Thank you to the author for a chance to read an early copy.

    Asmi is a successful woman who holds a high-powered position in a global corporation that allows her to travel all over the world. On the flip side, she is forty, unmarried, childless, and has no immediate prospects for a permanent relationship. She worries that she may have put too much emphasis on her career and too little on her personal life, and just as she begins to question her choices, she finds herself in the middle of a corporate Hunger Games (her words) between her and a male colleagu

    Asmi is a successful woman who holds a high-powered position in a global corporation that allows her to travel all over the world. On the flip side, she is forty, unmarried, childless, and has no immediate prospects for a permanent relationship. She worries that she may have put too much emphasis on her career and too little on her personal life, and just as she begins to question her choices, she finds herself in the middle of a corporate Hunger Games (her words) between her and a male colleague for a position she fears she isn’t even qualified for. And so, let the games begin.

    In "The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You," author Amulya Malladi (Bestselling author of "The Copenhagen Affair") draws the reader into the high-powered corporate world where Asmi works hard to walk the tightrope of being a woman in a male-dominated world. With sharp wit and intelligent dialogue, we observe Asmi in her work relationships, friendships, and with family, and see how she tries to balance it all while feeling she may not be balancing it very well. You’ll find yourself cheering Asmi on as she makes decisions that will affect her personal and professional life in her quest to find out if a woman can really have it all. A truly intelligent novel by a highly talented author.

    If you are a woman, READ this book. Does not matter what age or stage of life you are in, student, homemaker, in between careers, or a working woman, just READ this book. Call it a Survival Guide or Coaching 101, this book motivates, inspires, and maybe even emboldens.

    A survival workbook brought to life by Asmi, a woman in her 40’s, unmarried, not in a permanent relationship, at times melodramatic, and always doubting herself because of familial expectations. Her sister is happily married with two children and their mother expects the same of Asmi. This, constantly has Asmi questioning her life and her career choices. On the work front, Asmi is in a battle with Scott, who she considers her nemesis, for a promotion as Vice President of Marketing.

    In this fast paced novel Asmi tells through her own experiences, that women can have both a life and a career without giving up either. The story is very contemporary and tells stories of women who have to deal with obvious workplace situations, have to assert themselves every step of the way, and have each other, like Cara for Asmi, to lean on for support in this male dominated world. A morale booster for any woman who questions herself, doubts, and thinks she cannot make it. This is one book you will want to keep referring back to time to time and especially if you are in a corporate environment. Amulya Malladi has definitely outdone herself with this novel. Cannot wait for her next one.

    I was sent a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Asmi is a role model, even if she can't see it.

    I can't quite remember how I got connected with the author to receive this ARC but I'm so glad I did. What a refreshing and empowering piece of literature.

    There are times when Asmi grated on my nerves, but it's probably because we can all relate to that inner self doubt that Asmi often experiences (or her inner critic as she refers to it).

    Asmi is a role model, even if she can't see it.

    I can't quite remember how I got connected with the author to receive this ARC but I'm so glad I did. What a refreshing and empowering piece of literature.

    There are times when Asmi grated on my nerves, but it's probably because we can all relate to that inner self doubt that Asmi often experiences (or her inner critic as she refers to it). Asmi is a woman we can relate to even if our circumstances and lives are exactly the same. We've probably all experienced those common pressures - to "settle down," to get married, to have children, yada yada. You know the drill. This pressure to choose motherhood and only motherhood to forsake travel, career, self.

    I'm a stay at home mom. I love it. This is what I want to do. But, I experience my own set of pressures when people tell me I wasted my education or tell me they couldn't JUST stay at home. It can be hard.

    That is why women need to support women which was my favorite take-away from The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You.

    Between chapters are excerpts from a fictional personal development book - helpful pieces for any woman in the work force. In all honesty, sometimes I found myself skimming these bits to get back to Asmi's story, but its something I could see myself coming back to in the future.

    I believe you can get your hands on that personal development book now! What a great complimentary piece.

    Sometimes Asmi was a frustrating character like when it came to her decisions about her romantic relationships, but isn't that just like all of us at one point in our lives or another? She's not perfect, and neither are we, but she's learning to love herself flaws and all and be confident in the good she deserves. A great moral.
