Flipkart Official Review
Siddharth Agarwal also known as Sid is a mess. His fifteen-year long marriage is falling apart. His parents are selfish and do not seem to understand his point of view. His boss is being a boss. His friends do not care. So everything is literally falling apart. With all of this happening in his life, Neha makes an entry – a single mom, full of charm, wit and confidence. Will she be the answer to all his problems? For that, you have to read this book.
Yashodhara Lal’s writing is witty and also full of empathy. It is a wonder that being a woman she has created a full-rounded, flawed and confused male protagonist. I think everyone can relate to Sid and what he goes through. At the same time, the writing is lucid and does not stretch too much on any one issue or scene. A light read for a day that you do not want something literary.
A thirty-six year old finds his life breaking apart in front of him with his marriage failing, his parents demeaning him and his friends backstabbing him. Yashodhara Lal’s Sorting Out Sid is the story of how one single mom arrives into his life, and perhaps lends it light once again.Siddharth Aggarwal’s life was good. He had been married for fifteen years now, his friends loved him and he was about to become the company’s youngest Vice President ever. But behind the calm front, his life is actually falling apart. His marriage is on the verge of failing disastrously, his parents think he is still a teenager and his friends are backstabbing him continuously. Add a machiavellian HR to the recipe and his life becomes a live volcano waiting to erupt. Enter Neha, a sprightly single mom who seems to be everything Sid has been missing in his life. Of course, she could also be the one reactant this mixture has been missing to let everything explode in Sid’s face. Sorting Out Sid is a tale of wit, humour and life’s finest details.
