I wanted to give only 3. It took me only two nights to cover up this much. The main thread of the book, which is a sort of investigation itself is left unanswered, so that readers can guess.
But the first half is really really thrilling. Only thing lacking is a good climax. View 2 comments. Mar 29, Arun Divakar rated it it was ok. There is nothing more frustrating than a work of art in the form of a book or a movie which fizzles out in the end. All that it leaves is a very bad taste in the palate of my mind and a rather inexplicable feeling of being cheated!
Hours and hours of walking down an alley way which finally leads to a dead end and so forth are other possible explanations of this phenomena. These will sum up this book.

The author is best known for one of the most poignant works of late but fails to deliver with this one. Not that I have a habit of comparing two works by an author, but this was an unavoidable line in this review. The name of the novel in my words translates to Deaths in the yellow sunlight which I do admit is a somewhat lame translation. But that was the best I could think of. The plot is fragmented into two : The first is the story of Christy Anthraper and of the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and of the unfolding of a murder mystery.
Interleaved with this story is a plot line where the author himself is a character and along with a bunch of like minded friends, embarks upon a journey to unravel the mysteries of the character of Christy. It is from here that the plot steadily deteriorates and then crashes into some thickets by the way side.
The story meanders into tales of the history of the island, myths of early Christianity and from there on it travels to terrains which have absolutely nothing to do with the main story. The outcome of all this is that as the story neared its end, I had stopped caring for the characters or the circumstances.
And as far as my intuitions went, there were no surprises in store for me either in the form of revelations or plot twists. Started with a bang and ended with a whimper. View 1 comment. Nov 29, Jinto Menachery rated it liked it. Still confused about what really, happened to our protagonist and to all the main characters in the book!!! Feels like an incomplete story. But I would say that this book is a real Page turner.. Really liked benyamn's way of writing. Sep 22, Sandeep rated it really liked it.
Manjaveyil Maranangal is a suspense thriller from Benyamin, and I picked it up after getting thoroughly hooked by aadu jeevitham. It follows two tracks- the first one of a group of literary enthusiasts when benyamin receives a manuscript copy of an intriguing story from a stranger through mail, and the second one, the story itself..
The manuscript contains an autobiographical narrative of the strange incidents that occur in the life or Christy Andrapper, the youngest member of the Andrapper fami Manjaveyil Maranangal is a suspense thriller from Benyamin, and I picked it up after getting thoroughly hooked by aadu jeevitham. The manuscript contains an autobiographical narrative of the strange incidents that occur in the life or Christy Andrapper, the youngest member of the Andrapper family in Diego Garcia.
He finds his old classmate shot dead in the middle of the street, and a day later, the public security, doctors, newspapers - everything seem to ignore the news. The boy's parents are informed that he died of a cardiac arrest. The manuscript ends after sparking intrigue in the hearts of the group, and they start following the clues in it to get the rest of the manuscript.
The story switches between the narrative in the manuscript and the attempts of the group to get hold of the subsequent parts, which have been distributed to multiple people and can be located by only following the clues left in the previous part.
There has been significant amount of research that has gone into Deigo Garcia, Ancient Christianity in Kerala and Mariam Seva- something that can be likened to black magic. Manjaveyil Maranangal starts off getting you interested, throws you into a thick fog of confusion, keeps you a little too long there to run the risk of generating disinterest, and then gathers insane pace in the last pages to such an extent that the book becomes unputdownable.
And where the book scores to me is the way the author doesn't insult the intelligence of the reader by providing a fairy tale ending. Benyamin proves his class by not providing a celluloid style hunky dory or tragic ending in this book.
Highly recommended. My dad gave me this after his read with a smile saying he got a friend by Title characters surname. I opened the book to see the story happening at Udayemperoor, a place nearby and familiar.
From there on this clever thriller was a real intriguing experience, I wanted to google stuff but the turning pages were at a better pace. Benyamin might be a fan of Lovecraft, the story inside a story, open ending and an account which makes us wanna believe the uncanny fiction. He smartly slips himself and h My dad gave me this after his read with a smile saying he got a friend by Title characters surname. He smartly slips himself and his friends group into the periphery story as the ones who search and unfolds the inner one.
And even during that, he upholds full deniability till the end, the explanation to which can only involve spoilers. Planning to give a proper visit to the church and premise to separate out fact and fiction, though dad wagers for much of his history accords.
Am pretty sure you are going to find a lot of relatable stuff on the run and might as well do a futile search on finding the protagonist in real life. There are some lingering issues as well, questions unanswered, too easy and convenient coincidences, overly friendly and helping fellows.
At least he isnt running away from them like King in Not an exact quote, but more or less. Totally real and is a place of nope, coconut crabs! Hope this book gets more love, hopefully some translated love among International readers.
This soft detective speculative fiction is definitely a reco from me, but be prepared to ignore some open ends. The gripping, suspense packed story line is certain to hold every readers attention. Every chapter ends with additional suspense and the story never loses the pace. There are moments of love, sorrow, loss, action, mystery and darkness that leaves the reader craving for more, and turn the pages anticipating answers. The story however ends leaving a lot of questions unanswered in the readers mind, the prime one being, was Christy Antraper a real or fictional character, what really happened to Melv The gripping, suspense packed story line is certain to hold every readers attention.
This is a clever whodunnit plot written as a novel within a novel, with Benyamin himself playing one of the principal characters driving the plot, in search of a mysterious person who keeps giving him various links of his novel.
There are hidden histories covering the place, Christianity in India, cryptic clues and numerous plots regarding a missing man and his murder investigation. A quick breezy read but not a very satisfying one.
