In this attempt the author visits places where the characters traveled and connect to characters in the novel to get the course of the story. When we live in a hell and need to write about the hell, we need poets and writers who can write a different prose. The brutal, vigilant and intolerant institutions mend the law to convenience. In-fights and betrayals inside column made sure that the doors are permanently closed for truth and justice. Benyamin, the author gets a mail message from an unknown reader Christie who sends a mail with a request to read and publish his life story as a novel. The trick however was that due to circumstances Christie could not send the novel to the author, but left with seven different people with an instruction to hand it over only to the author, once approached.

Mar 29, Arun Divakar rated it it was ok There is nothing more frustrating than a work of art in the form of a book or a movie which fizzles out in the end. All that it leaves is a very bad taste in the palate of my mind and a rather inexplicable feeling of being cheated! Hours and hours of walking down an alley way which finally leads to a dead end and so forth are other possible explanations of this phenomena. These will sum up this book. The author is best known for one of the most poignant works of late but fails to deliver with There is nothing more frustrating than a work of art in the form of a book or a movie which fizzles out in the end.
The author is best known for one of the most poignant works of late but fails to deliver with this one. Not that I have a habit of comparing two works by an author, but this was an unavoidable line in this review. The name of the novel in my words translates to Deaths in the yellow sunlight which I do admit is a somewhat lame translation. But that was the best I could think of. The plot is fragmented into two : The first is the story of Christy Anthraper and of the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and of the unfolding of a murder mystery.
Interleaved with this story is a plot line where the author himself is a character and along with a bunch of like minded friends, embarks upon a journey to unravel the mysteries of the character of Christy. It is from here that the plot steadily deteriorates and then crashes into some thickets by the way side. The story meanders into tales of the history of the island, myths of early Christianity and from there on it travels to terrains which have absolutely nothing to do with the main story.
The outcome of all this is that as the story neared its end, I had stopped caring for the characters or the circumstances. And as far as my intuitions went, there were no surprises in store for me either in the form of revelations or plot twists. Started with a bang and ended with a whimper.
