Sunny G’s Series Of Rash Decisions by Navdeep Singh Dhillon | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Sunny G’s Series Of Rash Decisions by Navdeep Singh Dhillon?

I had decided to pick up Sunny G’s Series Of Rash Decisions by Navdeep Singh Dhillon because I enjoy the trope of uptight person decides to just cut loose. Also, the cover made me think maybe this might be a light, fun contemporary. I went for audiobook because that’s how I am getting through books a little bit faster these days — seriously my reading has took a bit of a slower than normal turn.

What’s The Story Here?

Sunny G’s Series Of Rash Decisions follows Sunny who is at prom. He decides to make some decisions without rationalizing. The first is to shave off his beard, cut his hair and stop wearing a turban — this makes it so he no longer looks Sikh. What prompts these changes is that his brother Goldy has died of alcoholism and all that Goldy leaves for Sunny is his journal. He skips what is called the Snollygoster Soiree which is like this fandom event where he plays in a band to go to prom. But his plans to be rash get a little derailed when a girl named Mindii Vang steals his notebook. As it turns out, she actually does make rash decisions all the time.

What Did I Think Of  This Book?

So, this book was a bit more serious than I expected, which is fine! I did not mind the tone. To me, I thought Sunny had great character development. It seems like he really comes into his own and develops some important insights about his brother. Also, the depiction of the Sikh Punjabi community was interesting as well. I enjoyed the relationship between Sunny and Mindii – how they both shared vulnerabilities. Oh, and also Sunny has a stutter which I thought was another decent piece of representation.

How’s The Narration?

Navdeep Singh Dhillon’s Sunny G’s Series Of Rash Decisions is narrated by Shahjehan Khan. It is a fast listen at 7 hours and 30 minutes. I thought that Khan was easy to listen to and seemed to put a lot of emotion into the reading without becoming overwrought. This is well worth listening to — particularly on a commute. Highly recommend and also look forward to what Dhillon comes up with next.
