Firstly, here’s a thanks to the author for giving me an opportunity to read and review this book. This one is one of the most unique books I have read in a long time and the first homosexual book that I have ever read. Also, considering the issue of homosexuals has been largely crushed in India and that it is high time they are given an opportunity to express themselves, this book is a real gem. So here’s what lies inside the book!
The story centres around Pierre, a homosexual, who is dealing with heartbreak after his bisexual boyfriend cheats on him. Stuck in a boring job, Pierre doesn’t find anything exciting to do with his life unless he meets Vijay, fondly known as Jay. Vijay and Pierre are next-door neighbours and soon become good friends. Vijay often calls Pierre over to his apartment to cook for him since Pierre is an incredible cook.
Pierre, however, is attracted to Vijay from the very first day. Vijay, an Indian, on the other hand, is confused about his sexuality. Although he strongly advocates that he is straight, he gradually develops feelings for Pierre and longs to be with him all the time.
The story takes a twist with the entry of De’Andre, Pierre’s fiance who cheated on him. He apologises to Pierre with all his heart and tries coming back into his life. Things become more complicated when Vijay’s mother learns about Pierre’s sexuality and the nature of his relationship with her son. What happens to Pierre and Vijay’s weird relationship in the end? Well, for that, you must read the book!
The style of writing of the author is entertaining and crisp. It is simple and hence easy to understand. He tries to portray Pierre and Vijay’s relationship in great detail, thus making it look real. You can read the book with pace.
I must say it is a great genre to choose considering the fate of homosexual relationships across the world, especially in India. It is a bold subject and perfectly portrays the feelings of homosexuals. The story in itself is entertaining. All in all, a good read!
