Selection Day: The story of two young men from the slums of Mumbai who are pushed by their father to become cricket stars.
In depth look at youth sports (cricket)
Relationships: Father and sons. Sibling Rivalry. Mentors/ Sponsors and athletes.
A trip to Mumbai.
Adiga’s style. Jumpy/ character exploration/ language.
Themes of coming of age, emerging sexuality, sports.
Adiga’s style can be dividing. If you liked White Tiger, you will be ok with this.
Can meander at times, and the ending was a little flat.
The language, especially the cricket/ sports idioms can be hard to follow.
I picked this one up for several reasons: I really enjoyed Adiga’s first book, White Tiger. Selection Day is being turned in a Netflix series (I don’t know why that’s a magnet for me…). And it was on sale on Amazon.
On selection day, when Manju is 16 years old, both brothers, Radha and Manju, were competing for a position on the team. What was Manju’s plan? There was father’s advice to get as many runs as possible. Their father has a favourite son, a special son, and the sons have a special obsession. For Manju, is it science or is it cricket? On selection day, Manju must face, not only the incoming balls trying to get him out, but also his life-changing decisions.
If readers like the sport of cricket, they will like this novel of obsessions, dreams, family favourites, expectations, peer pressure, choices, dedication, love relationships. and wayward distractions. Its themes of brotherly competition, external circumstances, and paternal love are explored in a fascinating way, to make this an entertaining novel.
Very well written.
