Sometimes, a journey back is a step forward.  

When 26-year-old Ayan is sent to live with his grumpy old grandfather Gopal Shanker in a tiny village in Kerala, he is understandably devastated. What can a sleepy, idyllic village without even internet connectivity offer a young man?

A brilliant story. Extraordinary 1980's feel.

Pros - Story is extraordinary. Letters exchanged between characters are so emotional and nostalgic, especially life of grandfather. Cons - Atleast they could have used a female voice for Rohini & real elderly voice for Gopal Shankar. Aayan voice was perfect. A few background sounds (just a few) could have made the whole narration super easy and interesting. This way narration could have got more emotional and heart wrenching.

Amazing story and beautiful narration

A touching story of Muthachen beautifully woven around his various life experience. My eyes were wet many times. Thanks Preeti Shenoy for this wonderful story. and even better was the soulful rendition by Aswin Varrier. He gave life to every scene so well that I was transported to actually witness them. A must read/hear

this is the best book I have ever listened

though ,the ending was painful and it left me in tears and while I was listening to the book it seemed to me all the characters from the book and everything whatever is happening in that book is reality. I have learnt so many things from this book like love never dies and the closest person when they die it lives inside us like a hundred little flames . the narrator is so polite and awesome I have loved his voice.

A story of family, native, love, grandparents, etc

About book: A well woven novel that takes us to all sorts of emotions. Conversation with grandparents are always special. Story does not fail to keep us hooked all through the book. Feel-good book. About Audiobook: Throughout the audiobook the pronounciation was very clear and neat. I didn't face any issue for the entire duration. With enough voice modulations, this audiobook is splendid.
