Definitely would recommend!
Loved the witty one liners throughout the book. Really refreshing read.
Like all of us , Sid has many a shade in his life ... he is The Husband Sid, The Party Sid , The Uncle Sid , The Son Sid and of course The Work Sid . He tries his level best to play each role in an impeccable manner but evidently ends up in a conundrum. His aspiration for a six-feet stature makes him miserable in front of Krish's six-three frame and he gets a complex in spite of his spiffy appearance. His relationship with Mandira is such that he feels " replacing her Colgate Toothpaste tube with a tube of Odomos ". A small portion of Sid , actually , resides in everyone of us and that's why we can relate with the character so easily. His dilemmas , his confusions, eccentricities, complexes as well as joy and happiness become ours unknowingly.
By the middle of the story Sid actually gets himself to the chair of his ex-boss Akash by becoming the youngest Vee-Pee in the company. He cherishes his promotion and tries to be a tad more confident in his actions and decisions. But sorting out things is not a child's play and Sid , to his parents is still a child who are always there to protect him from every woe , even from his divorce. As happens in real life , things are harder than they appear and Sid continues his journey to figure them out, in a proper way and the readers take a stroll along with him .
Yashodhara really has a flare for writing a well-woven story. Her debut work Just Married Please Excuse is an ample proof to that and this one Sorting Out Sid , even is a better one. Crisp wit and delectable humour along with an occasional tinge of satire have done the job in a wonderful manner. But it would be wiser if we could dig deeper and observe the incisive insight of the author . Her depiction of different situations and characters are believable most of the times and as the readers smile they also think of similar situations they have confronted with. Yashodhara Lal has successfully camouflaged the serious issues with smile. I absolutely enjoyed each and every bit of the book and would like to recommend it to everyone , either in need of sorting out life or not.
P.S. I really love the cover of the book !
From my side it's 4/5
I liked the book and I'd say it was an interesting and a good read as it's not overpowering with emotions like a normal book of a Indian writer does, it's not got very melodramatic characters. The writer Yashodhara Lal has ensured that you are kept interested through the entire book. One learning you definitely get is that you've gotta communicate in order to avoid misunderstandings or even if there are, you've gotta talk it out to sort it, otherwise, life may get a lonely. Rest, you can find out by reading the book. Definitely, a thumbs up to the book.
