Manuvinte Lokam by Krishna Kumar K.J is the story of a young boy who is in search of his parents and sibling who went missing years ago after an air mishap. Manu is our protagonist who is living in the U.S and ventures out to find out the truth behind his dear one's mysterious disappearance.
The book,written in a very simple language is at best an okay read which might work well for the very young readers.Apart from the lead character, there aren't many characters which are well developed.At times, the book reminded me of the many adventure stories which I used to relish reading during my childhood.That exactly is it's strength as well as weakness. At times, you get the feeling that you are reading some sort of children's literature.
On the whole, I'm giving this one a 2.5 out of 5
