Mirrro the weird wayward by Manoj Kumar Sharma is a book that makes a social commentary and leaves a good impact on the readers.
The book is over 300 pages long and follows a series of weird incidences wherein a rapist’s sex is changed and the tabacco and liquor factories are set on fire. Who is this lawbreaker with out-of-the-box solutions for the perpetual problems plaguing the society, forms the rest of the story.
Penned in script like format, the book is written in colloquial English. Initially though the writing feels amateurish yet with time the pace and the language improve. The book has an interesting storyline which is quite hypothetical with uncanny solutions to the social problems. The focus of the book is to find a solution for social evils like addiction, rapes and ragging and by giving weird solutions, the culprit Mirrro sure makes us ponder. The book is packed with filmy situations and dialogues. The book could have been edited better to cut short the trivial details and drama. The characters too were sketched well.
As for me, the book turned out to be a quick read. It mingles fantasy and social issues quite well. The news room scenes and debates have been drawn well. The solutions given by Mirrro may not be acceptable to many but author points out the social problems succinctly.
To sum up, though overtly dramatic, it is a good work of fiction and a decent debut.
