I would recommend this book for it is a great step towards conversations and discussions that will help normalising the gay community. It's time people realise that everyone is unique in appearance, sexuality and we should all learn to live respecting this.
1. The novel immediately sucks you into the world of Mohanaswamy, letting you witness his pains and losses, which by far, you may have just had time to scoff at.
2. The different short stories that have been woven into a seamless narrative cater to a large spectrum of lateral gender orientations, enabling the reader to not only empathize, but also try and introspect upon the cruelty meted out to the vulnerable party.
1. A few parts read like erotica, but then, it was essential to describe the protagonist's feelings to the reader.
2. Well, I can't find another minute point. Just a grudge that the novel is proved a bit high.
MY SUGGESTION- Go for 'Mohanaswamy' if you can digest that the world is made up of folks of all kinds.
What the bad translation leads to is a rank distraction from what the stories are all about and hence a terrible experience.
very disappointed with the book. it seems a lot of hoo-ha about nothing, whereas i understand the struggles the author may have had coming out given his conservative background etc. Please choose wisely the next time you want someone to convert your works to reach a wider audience.
