Manoj has time and again proved that life isn't only about simple/worldly pleasures but it consists of various other components. This book is a revelation of the same.
The story revolves around Samar Bhatnagar, Sanjaneka and Varun Agarkar who comes to THC with various ailments - both physically and mentally. Each had their own woes and were not able to face it with the same intent, after they get treated in THC.
The book talks in detail about sex, desire to have one, gay relationship, expectations and betrayal in great detail. The surprise element of the story is connection between Sanjaneka and Varun through another person. Who that person is and what connects them is something you need to find out by buying this book.
The story is aligned real perfect with various incidents and it needs patience to read in full as it is not a thriller. The book still appealed to me for the simple fact that it talked in great detail about the human psychology which is the need of the hour.
The book is all about the healing process, that one needs during the demanding times, during the phase of accepting the past and overcoming it only to move ahead with grace.
It is a roller coaster read. I would recommend this book, The THC Under a Gibbous Moon, to anyone who is interested in reading a bold and gutsy adult fiction. Good job, Manoj!
This book revolves around the lives of 3 patients who come to The THC for their ailments and how they find solace with each other.
The THC talks about various massages and kriyas that help human body to self heal. It is enlightening to know how yoga can be an answer to any ailment.
Samar, Sanjaneka and Varun the 3 protagonists find an instant connection and support each other during the course of the treatments.
Samar's story is not as interesting as the stories of Varun and Sanjaneka. The story of Varun, Sanjaneka and Jaiver could have easily passed as a standalone story without bringing in The THC.
The THC's role explained very minimal though the therapies and kriyas are spoken about, some more revelation on the holistic centres believes and practices would have made the book more interesting.
The book also looks like a collection of short stories if we ignore the THC.
The end was not compelling like how it began. A good book that missed being a page turner.
