Review:

Well Cricket made me pick up this book for reading, and I must say I am not much disappointed.

Life in the sunshine by T. Satish is a story about 3 guys Sat, Sam and Trib, 3 teenagers who love cricket. The story revolves around their love for playing and watching the sport.

But then it also tells us about what fate had in store for them, an incident that turned out to be life changing moment for them. Will they still love cricket?

Starting with narration the plot is gripping at begaining but at a point it becomes a stretching and then again comes back to the point, the book is properly edited.

The author has really worked well on his characters, all the characters are strongly developed. Research work is amazing as well as i am a cricket fan but i didn’t had much idea about cricket fever of 80’s.

The cover is simple but quite beautiful.

Overall a must read book for those who love the sport of cricket and also for those who thought of playing it for the nation.
