Child/Currency || Outset Book Reviews.

Hello people, how are you doing?? Are you healthy??? I am down with extreme food poisoning and my health is deteriorating day by day. Please pray for me. I don’t know what’s wrong with me but let’s keep this short. So let’s just start with this review, shall we???

This book was provided by Outset Book Reviews in exchange for an incentive. I am not feeling well but work is work so let’s get started, people.

Child/Currency by Ketan Bhagat.

•Official Summary:

“Five years old is not big, Papa.”
“Really… then what is big?”
“Eighteen years.”
“Eighteen… why eighteen?”
“Because then mama can’t stop me from meeting you.”

Kanha’s words haunt Shreyas Kapoor. Shreyas hasn’t met his son in months because his estranged wife Prakriti treats Kanha like currency to be exchanged rather than as a child to be cared for.

Shreyas is alone, broke, and helpless. The law, society, and her family (maybe even his) all unjustly favor Prakriti. Destiny plummets Shreyas into a legal battle he’s bound to lose.

Enter faith—a higher power that follows no laws and has no bias. Shreyas takes refuge in his practice of the Holy Geeta and the words of Sathya Sai Baba, “Why fear when I am here?”

Will Shreyas have to wait until Kanha is eighteen to meet him again? Or will God have mercy on His devotee and deliver a miracle?

•My Review.

I read books like this very little but some books really touch your heart and slap a reality on your face and you can’t do anything but stare at it. This book was one of those. Shreyas a writer who is trying to earn his livelihood but is not so famous as his brother Preyas. Shreya’s wife Prakriti comes from a small background with big dreams of foreign trips and luxuries and whatnot that Shreyas can’t fulfill and a disastrous fight leads them to the worst decision of their lives that is a divorce but this story is not about the separation of two lovers due to divorce, it’s about the separation of a father from his son.

This book really made me feel angry and at a time pity Shreyas who couldn’t meet his dear child Kanha because of Prakriti’s malicious desires to use her own child as a means of extorting money out of Shreyas. I loved the concept of the book a lot although I did find it way too long but the emotions in this book were beautiful, they touched my heart. The longing and the pain of Shreyas made me feel so hurt and sad that I can’t even tell you. I felt like there were way too many characters that were not so important for the story and some part might have been cut and the writing was average too not so good but still the book had a really shocking ending and I am glad that I read it. Overall this book is worth reading once if you want to see the law from a different point of view and also if you want to explore the pain of a father during the battle of a child’s custody in divorce.

So that’s it for today. I hope you loved this review. I will be back soon with one more review and hope you all are safe and sound. Take care and see you soon, until then…

  3. There are people who are so much into money that they wouldn’t even care about their children or family. It is good that a book is written on such topic and I loved your review.

  4. Well, my view about this book turned out to be completly different. Many of us dont want to see the pain and anxiety a father goes through when he misses his child. We have a well set mindset that fathers need to bold and hard from heart. But No they are humans too and feel the equal pain for child like the mother. Unfortunately the society denies to accept it. Author beautifully shared that dark side of a father’s life through this book
