Book Review : The THC Under a Gibbous Moon - Manoj V Jain

We, as humans, have gone beyond the usual of expectations. We always want more, more than that more and it goes on and on. In this never ending loop, we have engulfed ourselves with pain and agony, with irritation and discomfort, with trouble and turbulence, with what and what not! In the quest of achieving, beyond the expectations, we leave behind the bundle of happiness and the nature of being content.

I recently read The THC Under a Gibbous Moon, a book by author Manoj V Jain. The THC is Manoj's second book, his first book was The BNO (Sex, Life and Hookah) which was about a Boys Night Out, you can read the book review at Book Review : The Boys Night Out - Manoj Jain. Just like the first book, his second book, The THC Under a Gibbous Moon is also an adult fiction.

The story of the book The THC Under a Gibbous Moon is about three different individuals, Sanjaneka, Samar and Varun, who visit The THC, Total Healing Center for reasons very peculiar to them and it becomes a part of their journey wherein they want to get rid of the disharmony in their life and come to terms with it.

Not getting into much detail about the lives of these three individuals and how they end up at the Total Healing Center, I am writing about the overall book which has a message to convey, "It's okay to be emotional, it's okay to fail, it's okay to disappoint. Just move on". It is very modern in its approach and as a reader, you will connect to the story. It is also about the other side of human behavior and desires which are usually hidden under the pretext of culture and "Log Kya Kahenge" syndrome that our society is affected with.

The narration of the book, The THC Under a Gibbous Moon is very bold and talks about individuals that we come across in our day to day life, but we either we fail to see through them or they master the art of hiding their true self. The characters, the situations that they are in, their sexuality and their existence, the problems they face and their exploration of solutions make the book a gripping read.

The book is all about the healing process, that one needs during the demanding times, during the phase of accepting the past and overcoming it only to move ahead with grace. I would recommend this book, The THC Under a Gibbous Moon, to anyone who is interested in reading a bold and gutsy adult fiction.
