Review -Sorting Out Sid by Yashodhara Lal
In short "Sorting Out Sid" is one book that has all - Job pressure, a stupid boss to impress, sycophancy, a nagging wife, a breaking relationship and a blossoming new relationship with another woman.
Come here, my dear, you are so near…. Please have no fear, I love my beer….’ He ransacked his brain to come up with the last line to do justice to the poet in him and came up with ‘And my name is…. Sid’ This is Sid for you, the protagonist of ‘Sorting Out Sid’ who very closely resembles urban, uber-cool, working, unabashed, impulsive, witty and too-busy breed of modern India.
When you finally put this book down, what strikes you the most is how apt the title is - Sorting out Sid. Yes, right from the start till you have read the last word on the final page, all that is happening is Sid getting sorted out. Not by him or his friends or his colleagues or his parents or his wife but by you and me on this breezy ride.
The book is about Sid. It is his story. But it is as much a story of people cocooned around him – Mandira, Neha, Aditi – the women! Much recommended for everyone in and around their thirties. This is one book I’d love to wait for a sequel.
