The Death Wish - Book Review

The Death WishThe Death Wish by Sourabh Mukherjee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Death Wish is a short story written by Sourabh Mukherjee. The protagonist of the story is an old man called Abani. Abani is a self-made man. With humble beginnings, Abani has had his share of struggles. Now that he is well settled in his life, he wishes to have a nice retired life. But the conversation between his son and daughter-in-law which he overhears changes everything.

The author brings to life the vagaries of old age, though they are predictable. Abani’s rags to riches story is interesting. The tussle between life and death is also brought up well. The story is well edited and can happen in anyone’s house. Further the optimistic ending is cherry on the cake. If and only if it was a little better. Yet The Death Wish is surely a one time read.
