Book Review : The Surrogate Lies
Book: The Surrogate Lies
Publisher: Half Baked Beans
Purchase at: Amazon
Four diverse characters + Four different journeys + Four perspectives = One humorous, paradoxical, and adventurous tale. A dysfunctional writer, a hyperbole consultant, a Bollywood smitten driver and an over the top mysterious foreign man meets at crossroads for an epic expedition. The book blurb says it all. Go ahead and give this book a read.
The essence of comedy is essentially in the timing which Shantanu Munshi has managed to capture beautifully. The story conceptualization is unique and is rightly accompanied by the style of writing, which is fresh and a much-needed break from the usual fictional tales. The cover does not do justice to the tale presented. The book tells us how every situation we face in our life can be different, great, or worse from someone else’s viewpoint. A thumbs up for this book and pat on the back for the author for pulling this off.
