Regional:Shareera Shastram by Benyamin


'Shareera Shasthram' is quite different from Benyamin's earlier works(Goat Days,Jasmine Days). Unlike his previous books,this one is more of a crime novel and tries to trace the organised conversion and crime happening in the name of religion.The story begins with the accident of Midhun, a youngster who gets hit by a mysterious vehicle and dies in the hospital later.His friends Sandhya, Rajesh, Pretty set out to find the truth behind his death only to realize later that their lives are also in danger.

Positives- This one is a decent crime novel and also explores some hitherto unexplored aspects of organised religion.

Negatives- the pace slackens a bit at times,some loopholes in the plot,there is nothing 'new' in the motive!
