I want my son back is a powerful piece of fiction (I hope it's not reality) and rendered very powerfully by Uma Eyyunni. The language used is very appropriate and the situations are highly appealing. The technique of connecting the incidents is superb. But the highlight of the entire novel is the emotion underlying every word, phrase and sentence.
The entire book goes in the narrative style and is expressed from the point of view of the mother who wants her “son back” into the normal world. The thread separating us and such persons is very thin and one does not know when it will get snapped.
The novel I want my son back should be read by every sensitive person. As a reader I hope this is the last cry of a mother and no more such cries occur.
