Of the lush verdant landscape of his village and of his loving family haunt Najeeb whose only solace is the companionship of goats In the end the lonely young man contrives a hazardous scheme to escape his desert prisonGoat Days was published to acclaim. This is one of the best work of fiction I have ever read in Malayalam A land mark book We can feel the pain and emotions that the author would have undergone while writing this book The book is as raw as life could be and as beautiful as life should be Being an author myself I could associate with the afterword in which the author describes the process of writing Writing itself is a tough task writing so beautifully so lyrically is nearly impossible Benyamin has achieved the near impossible writing a great piece of fiction while keeping the reader engrossed like he is reading a pot boiler That is the mark of a true classic There are popular books that are page turners but very poor in literary value and then at the other end of the spectrum there are good literary works that intimidates an average reader or even perhaps bore him to death Good literature is that which makes the reader engrossed and enthralled at the same time Aatujeevitham is one such work Futu

    Sitting in the air conditioned lounge of a coffee shop, sipping on freshly brewed coffee and mumbling that life is becoming dull to a good looking woman was I. That too was a way of fishing for her sympathy wherein she patted my arm and said Talk to me about it why don't you ? as she intertwined her fingers with mine. I came back home after assurances of meeting each other again later. Knowing that the day has been a lo

    A supremely good read. Recommend very highly.This is the story of Najeeb, a not so well to do youth from Kerala who goes to Gulf to make money and ends up suffering unimaginable horrors. This is based on a true story and what a story it is. Everything from how little Najeeb dreams of, how his friends in Mumbai help him, how not knowing the language made him scared in the airport is supremely well described. Once the part where

    Was a stunning read, made authentic by the malayalam language which I was reading after than a decade. I was totally immersed in the story, to the extent that I felt a discontent even while leading a highly covetable affluent life, according to the standards of the protagonist. I dreamt weird, scary dreams, felt low, and had a low grade headache throughout this period. Every time I ate or drank, or just relax

    'Goat Days' is an unusual novel: probably quite unlike anything else you'll read this year. A relatively rare translation from Malayalam by Joseph Koyipally, it is, as its title suggests, a book in which goats feature prominently. So prominentl

    Benyamin's Goat Days,translated from Malayalam (Aatujeevitham), is based on a real story. And so, it is far haunting than any fictional account you could read of despair and hope (loosely comparable to Thousand splendid suns?)Set in

    I can't believe what I just finished reading. The Author's note have left me all broken. Yes, I am heartbroken. The story might have a satisfactory ending but it still breaks my heart to read what I have just read.It's a very beautiful story.
