The Blue Moon Day by Santhosh Sivaraj Book Review

TITLE: The Blue Moon Day
AUTHOR: Santhosh Sivaraj
PUBLISHER: INVICIBLE PUBLISHERS
PAGES: 213
BLURB
Things were never the same for five ordinary individuals who got struck at crossroads and there was no way they can run back. They had no other choice but to take a plunge into their deepest fear and leave the rest to destiny. Their characters was tested out of their comfort zone and it witnessed abstruse results; a Ph.D. scholar fights to win a pizza making contest and a tennis prodigy running for his life in a war-torn, bloodied Island. Extreme circumstances and their consequences made these ordinary individuals extraordinary . Was the test imposed on them by someone? Or did they invite it on themselves. The Blue Moon Day is that Once in a Blue Moon day story which questions an individual’s priorities, ridicules the worldly routines and finally redefines happiness

I would like to thank author and publisher for the review copy!

CHARACTERS
Abi: The Pizza Engineer
Deepak: The Messenger
Vivi: Not Today
Sankaran and Anustup: The Storyteller
Prabhakaran: The Heaven

MY REVIEW
The book contains six chapters describing the lives of five ordinary men. But circumstances make them extraordinary. Each short story defines a meaningful and inspiring moral. The story of Vivi was a bit dramatic but it also gave some important lessons. It told us that how we have stopped working on the dream which we always dreamed of and now stuck in a rat race to please someone.
I really liked the story of Sankaran. Many old aged people think that their life’s gonna end and don’t focus on what hey can do now but either keep thinking about death. Suicidal thoughts also keep them away from living their life now and cherish all the moments in the life. They have a chance to do everything they may have missed upon earlier.
Prabhakaran’s story discusses some important issues from health to justice. This story defined every aspect of life in such a beautiful way. It even described death so beautifully. Everything in this world has something positive it is just the way we think about it.
The story of Abi gave a really important lesson. The story tells that how many awards we have won or how we topped doesn’t matter but we have to learn from everything and follow what we liked to do.

MY RATING
4.5/5
You should read this if you want to read some meaningful short stories!
