The parallels between Joshi's Foreigner and Camus's The Outsider are certainly well placed, however, Sindi (the narrator here) and Mersault differ in one important way: their acceptance of indifference. Mersault is confident of his indifference, he doesn't quiver about the outcomes of his detachment, and in the true spirit of Camus, he confronts the meaninglessness of life head on, without being doubtful of his thoughts and actions. In that respect, Sindi is an early stage of Mersault. Sindi app [...]
Sindi Oberoi is a soul whisperer.
I had too much expectation from this book after reading the author's " The Strange Case of Billy Biswas".The book started off really good.The plot was made precisely in the beginning and in the middle but the story ends tragic and it was quite fast. I guess the book should have ended much before the real end of this book.The last some chapter of the book was totally unnecessary to me which could have been avoided and instead of that the end could have been a little slow.I was totally disappointe [...]
It is a nice novel. It's not an enchanting piece, but can set one to thinking! Speaks a lot about life, an exaggerated 'a lot'. Sindi's character was pretty realistic, the way everything was illusion to him and detachment, the only basic rule to be followed in life, is how life really is! Sad, difficult, painful but you're option less, you've to keep moving till whenever you're finally stopped! Good one time read :)
A novel which is intriguing and is unfolded by the great story teller - Arun Joshi. The Protagonist, is the epitome of the modern man, unable to take a stand, afraid of commitment, and who suffers a great deal because of his inability to lack of commitment. Also, American culture is expatiated. The novel is depressing at certain moments, but its end, points towards the protagonists' step towards commitment.
Like all books this starts out pretty good, and entertaining. The ending was so so. Fast read its ok.
Order: 3rd (out of 7, 1st being the best) (B)
