Selection Day is a coming of age story about two talented young brothers Radha and Manju Kumar as they train to become professional cricket players Living in the slums of India with their legit crazy and domineering father they are desperate to get out Their cricket skills eventually get noticed by scouters and then by a rich businessman who offers to sponsor them if they agree to train with a renowned coach in the hopes that at least one of them will be selected to play on a professional teamWith a little extra cash from the sponsor life gets better for the family Their father finally moves them out of the ghetto and they all begin to live a middle class lifestyle But things also getcomplicated Their father gets crazier The boys s relationship with each other gets extremely competitive and destructive Plus the brothers begin to forge new friendships with others that make them uestion their devotion to their father cricket and each other In the end they are forced to decide which relationships are worth fighting for and if they even want to play cricket at allThis is a weird book not gonna lie I ve never read anything else by Aravind Adiga but my understanding is that all of his books are like this crazy characters hard to follow dialogue and confusing storytelling Reading this book is definitely an experience but it s an experience you kind of just have to let happen to you I struggled to get through those first 100 pages and only once I stopped obsessing about actually understanding what was going on did I begin to like the bookDespite my struggle reading it I probably would have still given the book four stars but the ending was so disappointing I don t know if Adiga was intentionally trying to make this a road less traveled cautionary tale or something but it fell so so flat I could not have been disappointed with where the story ended upSo three stars it is and no I won t read another one by Adiga Booker Prize winner or not Hmmm I ve said that before Maybe Booker Prize winners aren t for meARC provided by publisher through Net GalleySee of my reviews at wwwBugBugBookscom
