From childhood, the world in which we live, teaches us to bury our ‘bad’ past somewhere deep inside us, so deep, that even we can’t dig it back and after that just move on.

What happens when a 10 year old child, who claims to be your future son, comes to you to help you find a perfect match for his mother? What happens when eventually you start to doubt on his intentions? What happens when a girl starts to turn your dreams into nightmares? What happens when your ‘Future son’ starts to haunt you? What happens when your FUTURE starts to bleed in your PRESENT through your PAST?

My Review:

An interesting story wherein, tired with the slow pace, a couple’s future son comes to the present to bring them together.

Just like the title, the story is truly unconventional. I liked the protagonist and especially loved the parts when he first comes across his son. His shock and confusion were wonderfully conveyed by the author. The best part of the book was when the son bossed his dad around, it was too cute.

Most new author’s simple narration oversimplifies, and in turn, ruins the book. But in this book, even though the language is simple, it somehow adds to the flow of the narration.

Although, I do feel that the suspense part could have been better. It was obvious from the beginning how the story would end. It was quite obvious from the start who the mom was, so all that was left to see was when they would be together, instead of “if” they would be together.

Also, when compared to first half, the second part was quite over the top. While I do not want to spoil the book, but some parts of the book were not totally believable.

All in all, a light read, especially for those who like Bollywood masala type books.
