Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss by Rajeev Balasubramanyam.

There’s no problem Professor Chandra can’t solve. Except for one: the secret to happiness.

In the moments after the accident, Professor Chandra doesn’t see his life flash before his eyes, but his life’s work. 

He’s just narrowly missed the Nobel Prize (again) and even though he knows he should get straight back to his pie charts, his doctor has other ideas. 

All this work. All this success. All this stress. It’s killing him. He needs to take a break, start enjoying himself. In short, says his doctor (who is from California), Professor Chandra should just follow his bliss.    

Professor Chandra doesn’t know it yet, but he’s about to embark on the trip of a lifetime.

Schmaltzy

Self-Obsessed 70 Year Old Divorced Academic Has Deeply Unlikely Epiphany, Gets In Touch With Feelings, Has Unbelievable Rapprochment With Children And Ex-Wife In Sentimental Bourgeois White Christmas.
The narrator Ramon Tikaram does such a fantastic job of reading this, his voice is beautiful and not only does he do believable South Indian accents, he’s so good at voicing all the other characters too which is no small feat.
However I haven’t felt this let-down by a story in a long while, it’s as if the author was rushing to make a publishing deadline and was compelled to wrap things up quickly in a neat, Disney-sequence bow.

Delightfully subversive. Wickedly entertaining. Brilliantly read.

A bright sparkling novel. Lots to think about, it’s a well written book which anyone with a university association will recognise and enjoy, deliciously so.
(If occasionally clunky and cliched)
Is brilliantly read. An absolute delight. Adds so much to the story.
Thanks to writer and to reader.
