    A beautiful piece of work

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Anand has captured all the childhood struggles and triumphs so beautifully and in a matter of fact manner. I loved the phrases in Kannada thrown around here and there making it very real. A must read for all especially the teenagers ......hoping they will get a glimpse of how one grows up in small towns with minimalistic living styles and growing up by converting drastic situations into opportunities.
    Thank you Anand for raking up a lot of memories

    Perfect Title to this down the memory lane pages.

    I enjoyed every bit of the 200 odd pages. Every now and then did have to put the book down to travel back in time. True to the authors promise. While reading the book, an incident happened which made me laugh for about 2 hours. I boarded the flight to Delhi from Chennai, and I was reading the story 28 Monkeys. The last man to board was this orthodox middle aged tamil man. He had a red vertical welt on his forehead. Laughter began. Read it to know.
    Great book and highly recommended.

    Half-Pant’s Full-Pants story is set in late 70’s, in a small town called Shimoga in Karnataka, this book is simply Nostalgic, a gripping narrative, coming-of-age tale of childhood, courage, innocence and friendship. Suspi’s Half-Pants is a lovely book brought back beautiful memories and reminded me of my own friends and innocence.
    I don’t think that I’ve ever read any book like this before. It’s a perfect blend of curiosity, comedy and drama, this book isn’t gender specific or age group spec...
