Two friends inspired the idea of traveling and all sorts of adventures that come with it in each other when they were slaving to get a profession in the university. Three years later, an opportunity presented itself, and they did the needful. Within a short time, they were reasonably and understandably beaten by the bug. Man Mission began in earnest as two others were also inspired. These adventures included seemingly childish and dangerous biking and kayaking in lonely bushes. But in the end, the kayaking, biking, etc. in the lonely bushes and jungles proved to be good, for these men learnt all the lessons of life they needed and were able to deal with the harsh realities of life because of those adventures. Man mission is aimed at understanding the basic nature of man in order to deal with the harsh realities of life. It is written by Eytan Uliel.

In one of their adventures in New Zealand, the protagonist broke his kneel in a lonely bush. Right there in the lonely bush, two priorities were looking at him in the face: it was either he considered his broken kneel and then make a U-turn on the occasion or he damned consequences just to please his friend and to make sure that their maiden adventure was a success. One was to be chosen over the other but he chose the latter. So he pretended he was fine. But when the pain was excruciating, he jumped at the offer of help from the drug dealers they met in the lonely bush.

Man Mission gives insight into the challenges that couples and every other persons face. Without mincing words, it is an intriguing, interesting story. It is all about everyday realities. It reveals how misplaced priorities are often the cause of unresolved conflicts in relationships. In this story, the couple began to have issues when the man gave no priority to his wife's emotional needs. The protagonist had acted like Man Mission was more important than his wife. Rachael, his wife, protested but the protagonist wouldn’t get it. In subsequent times,Rachael would deny him sex because it was unavoidable. But he wouldn’t see things that way. So he would jerk off in anger. The denial continued mysteriously. And he would jerk off habitually. As time went on, he cheated on his wife. When she found out, she couldn’t bear it. So she opted for a divorce. It would be the end for the two.

It is a great work of intrigues and mysteries. The scenes on the other end are insightful and inspirational. The scenes actually depict every day realities. If you are looking for insight and inspiration, this book is for you. It is also unusually entertaining. It is fun to read. Generally, the issues of imperfections, choices, and the realities of life are addressed.

Four characters: Sam, Daniel, Aleck and their friend, the protagonist, lived as they believed, and despite their mistakes and problems, they eventually had a happy ending, and generally found out that their seemingly childish initiative would be the only thing that would help them deal with the harsh realities of life. The characterization is intelligent. It is nature, imperfections, and choices at work. However, the remarkable thing for me is that vacations and recreational activities are mentioned in a way that inspires sublimation. If it is not 4 out of 4 then it can’t be less. It is 4 out of 4.
