Life in the Sunshine is a debut Novel by T. Sathish.
If you are a 90's kid then you will definitely have a strong connection with the book. The story revolves around three best friends - Trib, Sat and Sam - known as the triple Sunday gang, their love and passion for cricket!. They didn't only loved cricket, they worshiped it. Right from their childhood, to college to their settling in life, the story revolves around them playing in their building compound to where life finally takes them. They dream of making money by playing for the Indian Cricket Team. But its not easy to get what you want. The author has beautifully shown how Sat gets disheartened , pulls himself again and decides to preach Cricket as you preach religion.
The writer has put in a lot of effort to explain some of the great cricket matches played in the 80's and 90's. The best part of the book is that it doesn't get philosophical while narrating the story. The book has an interesting twist at the end which was refreshing. All the characters seemed to be real. The book had some very funny moments ,which was nice.
The language is simple and lucid.
The cover of the book is simple and beautifully designed, appropriate to the plot of the book.
The book gives a very nice message that life is full of challenges and one should face them positively and not to give up!
I would highly recommend it to all the cricket enthusiasts!
