Customer Review

Reviewed in India on 4 July 2018
Ashwin is definitely pretty good at throwing in some mind boggling facts and it is heartening to see that he has done is originally this time (The Krishna Key was a rip off, uh oh, Da Vinci code). So kudos to originality this time.
The story starts with a series of deaths around the globe of eminent personalities. What perplexed everyone was that there was nothing that explained those deaths. A well explained concept of Yamaj there. Many isolated characters with both strong and weak links, historical and current, come together to figure out the what was happening at the Milesian labs.
Characters like Brahmananda and Mikhailov are interesting and the concepts of particle and energy fit well with many situations otherwise very difficult to explain. The unusual detours to Ramayana were a simple turn off as they had little relevance in the story.
The events description, no doubt, has been the typically Ashwin Sanghi way, interesting and snippet type that keeps the reader engrossed throughout. If the reader can connect the parts herself, this is a 2 hour read else one can lost in events and connections.
All in all, an interesting read, if you are bored with those usual romantic, fiction or crime books and want a mix of reality and tantra (read positive) transfusion, this is a book to grab.
