The Amazing Racist
by Chhimi Tenduf-La

The wonderful(?) journey of adulthood that was destined to be! 

I was literally waiting for Chhimmi's second book after reading The Amazing Racist. And I am so glad that I was able to read it within a week of its release in India. This book touches a lot of things very bluntly and helps the reader to connect pretty easily.

This book came into me life at a very right time. It perhaps gave me the optimism that I was craving for.


Summary
Narration
The narration is wonderful like always. It is his wonderful narration that seperates the two eras that is being portrayed in the book. No matter how sad and dark the description of the past is, the present is pretty much what one can relate to and can actually teleport the reader to his/her adolescence days - infatuation, best friends, competition- things that matter in this particular phase of life.

Plot
The book revolves around the story of the boy Prabhu, who was separated from his family in  the early years of his life. Coming from a poor background, the story is a beautiful description how he ends up into one of the elite schools, makes friends and needless to say enemies, falls in love and never gives up even when things turn out to be pretty unfavorable for him.

My Opinion

The book is a quick read, gripping and very honest. There might be some descriptions that you might not like but unlike the last book, this book is well balanced in character description. The book has portrayed human emotions and struggle beautifully and realistically. And yes, the book is indeed inspiring. No matter how bad the past was and how it might keep coming back to you, one must know that things eventually get better.

I loved this novel.
