Book Review: Insecure Nahush by Sandip Singh
Sandip Singh’s Insecure Nahush is an interesting and poignant look at a man who has decided not to let fate call the shots in his life. We follow Nahush’s journey over the course of the book. Nahush lives a fairly secluded life due to his lack of social graces and crippling self esteem. The job he holds at the private insurance company is dissatisfying for him. Additionally, his family is no comfort to him. Nahush has a constant feeling of insecurity about his own life. Obviously, he didn’t plan on any of this stuff to happen but he starts questioning how he makes decisions. Through the story, we discover more about Nahush’s career, family, and personal life.
Insecure Nahush deals with depression and insecurity, family issues, social pressures and a guy’s attempt to find the strength to keep himself together and his life in tact. It’s about living life and finding the will to continue when everything around you makes you just want to curl up and hide from the world. It is also about acceptance, growth and self actualization. It’s about finding something that helps define who you are as a person.
Through this book, Sandip Singh tells an important, thought-provoking and uplifting story of acceptance. The story tackles about delicate issues that are common in this highly competitive time, I guess this book rather speaks about the harsh reality that is going on in the society nowadays. It’s an eye-opener and it clearly represents the struggle every person undergoes when he or she is feeling insecure about their life.
Insecure Nahush is a poignant, character driven story filled with humor and heartfelt moments that kept me turning the pages until I reluctantly stumbled upon the conclusion. This book is a fantastic character study. The journey with Nahush through the past and present is bizarre at times, thought-provoking at others. But, I found it to be engaging no matter what. And, while it is mainly about Nahush, there are a few other interesting characters met along the way as well. They are all fleshed-out and realistic, with strong personalities that jump off the page and make you feel like you actually know them. The characters are the cog in the wheel that make this story turn, urging the reader to read forward, forming bonds and relationships with fictional characters simply because they feel so real, tangible, and alive.
Nahush’s story is one that is impossible to put down. It is the type of book that you never knew you needed to read until you read it. Sandip Singh manages to capture the true emotional upheaval of an insecure person, their relationships, worries, fears, and truths in a way that I have never seen before. Nahush’s inner turmoil is so believable that you can’t help but feel for him. Insecure Nahush is a book for everyone. It transcends all ages, genders, stereotypes, and labels. It is not mystery or action filled, but it is filled with things that happen to someone everyday but people fail to realize what they are feeling. Sandip Singh strikes truth in this amazing novel. Highly recommended.
