My Review - 

Life in the Sunshine is a fiction story written by T. Sathish. In his debut book, he talked about his passion and love for the sport, Cricket. The simple cover page and title create curiosity. However, this is not an autobiography; the title misleads the readers. 

In India, Cricket is not just a game; it is a religion, and the players are considered Gods. Sat and his two best friends Sam and Trib, connected with this sport very early age. Their dream is to play for India, and the motivation for this is an Audi car. The book embraces their journey and struggle. The way the author narrates the childhood memories of the characters is mesmerizing. I like Sat's act of becoming a religious preacher of Cricket, or at least he tries to until his parents know. Abdul is considered a ghost because he only appears at the India-Pakistan match, and that too cheer for Pakistan boils Sam, Trib, and Sat's blood. The chemistry between these three friends is remarkable. 

The story revolves around different matches India played and the players for their good and bad performances. Sat, the protagonist, learned some life lessons from real-life players and uses them in his college matches. As the title suggests, this book is not a story of some world-famous cricketer. It is a story of ordinary boys who adore this sport, and their love for Cricket is undying. The book consists of the story of three childhood friends who share memorable moments with each other.

The book is fast-paced and definitely puts a smile on the reader's face. The language is simple. I like the imaginary conversations of teenage boys after matches. As a reader, I wanted to know why Abdul always cheered for the Pakistan Cricket team and his family background. I also wanted to read about Sat's relationship with his family, which is missing. But overall, this book makes me smile a lot. I like the way the author makes it humorous at a few points. I recommend this book.
