Book Review: Mango People In Banana Republic

It has been a long time since I read a satire. I like to read this genre because it is difficult to write and I always appreciate the efforts of the writer in attempting it. However, every satire is not a good one. There has to be a good blend of both the aspects of it to make it a perfect one. I got this book as a review copy and here is my review of it.

The story talks about the state of life of a typical common man. Ravi is a man working in the corporate sector and you will find many people like him around you. Anand is someone who is on a spiritual search mode. What happens in the story is something that you will find happening around you. It is the story of common man. It is not just about their lives but it is about the entire society. It is how the society is functioning and how people are trying to adjust to it and battling their struggles. It is something with which you can connect and the satire has been used in the right proportions. You will have to read this book to find out more about it.


Beginning with the cover of the book, I was confused that why such a cover was designed. It arouses curiosity that why someone like a sage is there on the book cover with a barcode. But it became clear on reading the book that it was something related to the lives of the protagonists. The title is funny and gives an idea that the book will have funny elements in it. The plot is just another common man’s story. The narration is impactful and strong. The author has an eye for detail and it is visible from his narration.

Pick up this book if you enjoy reading satires. You will laugh and think about serious issues while reading this book.
