Book: Figmented Reality - Its 'Deep', its 'Dark', its 'Human Psychology'


Read Review Policy Here

Title: Figmented Reality
Author: Zuko
Publisher: Frog Books
Pages: 162
Price: Rs. 150
My Rating: 3/5


Addiction blurs our hold on reality; people say. But what if addiction becomes our reality? Siddharth had a fair few addictions in his wake. The challenge now was to differentiate between the ideal world and the real world. Will Siddharth be able to overcome his addictions and find true love. Or is it just another addiction? This book is not a biography of the author but is written in a way that author is the protaganist.


Figmented reality shows the deep dark side of human psychology. It revolves around a man who was sexually assaulted when young, and now he is trying to fight his demons.

As the blurb suggests, the book deals with various addictions and addiction to sex is the primary one. The way it is portrayed is rather bold and impressive and kudos to author to write on such topic.

The characterization  is not very impressive. I feel author could have done a much better job with it. With such strong content, one needs to build characters rather strongly. However, I did like Veena's character but again, it needs better build.

The depiction of the childhood trauma and how it affects rest of the life is very well portrayed. 

Overall it is an impressive read but there are two major turn offs - firstly editing issues. There are serious grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Even the blurb has spelling issue. Secondly, the ending is rather abrupt which is very disappointing.

My rating for the book is 3/5.

You can grab your copy here.

Love and Cheers
