Man, Woman and Child...

Finally, i have finished reading Man, woman and child... a touching story by ERICH SEGAL in his usual and charming style of depicting human relations highly filled with emotions and sentiments... the MAN in the story Bob is happily married with two kids... one fine day he comes to know about a child born to another lady with whom he had a brief affair some ten years ago, who is dead and the kid is left with nobody to take care of him... the story goes on how the MAN and his wife (WOMAN), and the boy (CHILD) go through the emotional crisis to their family... the way the author projected the innocence and perceptiveness of the child is too good... a good novel worth reading... though i have the movie (hindi) version of the same story MASOOM earlier, i liked this book version of the story very much... in fact, the ending of both versions are quite different... particularly, i liked the way the CHILD bids farewell to the MAN's family and decides to live in the way his mother wished!!! hats off to ERICH SEGAL...
