Siddharth is a young boy who is addicted to sex and masturbation. He has never had a serious girlfriend for he talks sex to them and they shoo him away. He realises that he needs help and enrolls himself at some addiction control programme. He meets Veena there and the feelings that he had suppressed for so long crop up again. Veena had once visited his home with her kids and Siddharth had a huge crush on her. He realises that Veena is divorced and starts to believe that he could be with her. Does he confess his feelings to her? How does Siddharth become an addict? Does he get rid of his addictions? Or does Veena turn into an addiction?
The cover of Figmented Reality goes very well with the title and the blurb. Black and white, to me, symbolize lies and truth, no and yes, fake and real. The story revolves around this premise and I believe the cover demonstrated it the best.
Coming to the story, it revolves around Siddharth and his life. There are many people like Siddharth in this world addicted to something. Addiction can be fatal. The end of this story proves it. The story begins with Siddharth's meet with Veena when he's 16. The story is then fast forwarded and we, now, find Siddharth at 23. The chapters are narrated in a different pattern. A short writeup about addiction is given at the beginning of each chapter and then the story continues. I couldn't find the link between the two at few places. But I really liked those writeups. They are indeed great. Its just that their placement was inappropriate. The story has been written in first person narrative and the author has done justice with the narration. It is easy and understandable. The language is lucid and clear. However, there are a few places in the story where you get lost and wonder what is happening. The incidents have been structured well and their overall flow is good. The story has many incidents that will leave you surprised. For example: the sexual abuse incident and the end.
Psychology, obsession, sex, addiction are the words that will cross your mind when you finish reading this book. If you're seeking for something in love that turns into obsession, a habit that turns into addiction then you must go for this book.
The write-ups about addiction at the beginning of few chapters was food for thought.
The end of the story was a surprising one.
The story begins with Siddharth drooling over Veena's assets. I found it a little weird. The start of the story could have been one of the write-ups. Beginning the story with that incident was a turn off.
The story gets confusing at many places.
The end of the story could have been presented in a better way.
I rate 'Figmented Reality' with 2.5/5 stars.
The author has depicted the trauma that a child has to live with if he/she is sexually abused in his/her childhood.
The protagonist being a boy is sexually abused by an elderly women who offers him a ride. The boy being innocent and unaware of sexual climax is overwhelmed with such a newfound pleasure and thus is always in search of an elderly women who could satisfy his sexual desires.
He is always embarrassed to talk with girls as they leave him as soon as they realise that his only motive is to use them to calm his carnal desires.
Finally his search ends on a divorcee named Veena who he finds to be very attractive.
He tries his best to lay her down but fails again and again. Later on he starts hellucinating about having sex with Veena but at last due to repeated failures he vents out his anger by choking her to death.
1. Language used is lucid and crystal clear.
2. The author has rightly depicted the mental status of a child who goes through sexual abuse.
3. The front cover of the book is quite new, thought provoking and at the same time justifies the title.
1. The ending could have been better.
1. Cover: 9.5/10
2. Charactwr build up: 8/10
3. Plot: 9/10
4. Editing: 9.5/10
5. Theme: (10/10) New and refreshing.
He was diagnosed with Dyslexia at an early age and found it difficult to follow language, but despite his limitations and the support of his mother he passed out from Vellore Institute of Technology in the year 2013 as Mechanical Engineer specializing in Energy. He was awarded the First Indian Dyslexic Writer by the K.L.University,Vijaywada.
He worked for a couple of years in a Public Limited Company before joining his father's business in Chennai.
Figmented Reality is a psychological book which forces the reader to analyse answers to certain fundamental questions in our lives.
The protagonist is a boy who at a very young age is sexually abused by an elderly woman. He is unable to get over the pleasure he derives from that one sexual encounter so much so that it engulfs him completely.
The encounter leads him to ways of self attaining methods of sexual pleasure.
As he grows up he is always on the look out for elderly women to satisfy himself but fails and in the process he offends women his age as the only thing he seeks from them is sex.
He is generally perceived as a pervert and avoided.
He goes deep into the dark world of drugs and constant state of wanting sex which he is unable to get.
Then enters Veena, a mother of two, and he falls for her head over heels to the point of obsession.
But his mind has so degenerated by this time that all lines between a figment of imagination and reality have blurred.
The author has really woven a brilliant narrative taking us through the dark dingy world of addiction and hallucinations.
The climax of the book is most unexpected and shocking.
