Well coming back to the book, this is obviously yet another inspired work the source being "The outsider" by Albert Camus. It is in fact a wonderful book about existentialism. Like they say, personality is a mask. A man is certainly not what he portrays himself to be. He has various aspects within himself, some known to him and some unknown. This book deals with the inner thoughts and feelings of the protagonist who at the beginning of the book has lived his life and is confined to the bed, deathbed actually and actually dies at one point but comes back to earth getting the boon from the God that there is no death for him and what happens in front of his eyes and what goes in the back of his mind regarding his past and present. The harsh reality and everything is what makes the book interesting.
The author combines with this, his own personal note where he mentions an incident which provoked him to write this book.
All in all, a good book to read. The protaganist seemed close to me, it was like I knew this guy or maybe it was me thinking as a guy in that era :) or something like that, full of thoughts, racing thoughts, practicality aspect and some unconventional decisions.
