  • Description
    An intimate tale of friendship and betrayal at a boarding school in war-torn Sri Lanka. 'A fresh and promising new voice on the literary landscape' - The New Indian Express I see you. Legs like toothpicks, body and face all ribs and cheekbones. And that hair. Come on, what is it? Like friggin' barbed wire. I see you with a hand-me-down cracked bat creaming a leather ball, in a sock, hanging from the branch of a mango tree. Being accepted into an elite international school on a cricket scholarship doesn't mean your life is going to change. Except it does, because hunky Indika - I for Indika, I for Incredible - takes you under his wing, drags you to posh restaurants and shows you pictures from glossy magazines of women who ... well, never mind, that's not the point. The point is: if your best friend snogs your girlfriend, can he still be Incredible? Was he ever? But don't sweat the small stuff. There are cricket matches to win, examinations to pass, a horrifying past to forget, a sinister schoolmaster to avoid ... and, of course, a first kiss to finally experience. Prabu's life is never going to be the same again. Funny, diamond-sharp and unapologetic, Panther is a novel about that familiar, fractured passage to adulthood that can make us magnificent if it does not kill us.

    Nice book

    Source: I got the book for free for an honest review.

    The book is about a Tamil boy in the war torned Sri Lanka. His journey from being trained to be a suicide bomber to become a cricket player and finally settled to help others like him.

    The author nicely captured the essentials of the theme but I wish that the book was a little bigger to capture more about the life of the Tamils in the Jaffana peninsula.

    The book starts slow but captured imagination after around 20th Chapter and picks p...

    An amazing book which speaks reality of developing countries

    Through this story, Chhimi have told it in such an easy language the several difficulties developing countries like Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan faces on daily basis. It tells how everything is corrupt and how your life is ruled by few bad self-proclaimed kings. It tells about how a nation and its people suffer because of the unwanted wars that take place even within a country between two groups. There are many such realities- minor and major that Chhimi have discussed with this ...
