My review


There are some novels which makes you to want more and there are novels which drives you crazy and makes you to quit reading.Then there are some novels which gives you mixed feelings, such is the novel, Baramulla Bomber.

The author has done a lot of homework for this one book which i noticed throughout.When i started reading the book, i was totally into the book.What was the problem is the unimportant things that comes later.Less explanations, more story could have worked better for grabbing the attention of the readers to keep them on the edge of their seat.

At the start of the novel, we learn Baramulla is a place where barely 1000 inhabitants were left alive out of 14000 people because of the pakistani troopers and Kabali tribal people.Then we learn about the theoretical physicist Openheimer who is nuts about wanting the weapon of universal sound that brought down the wall of Jericho as per the Bible.His hope is heightened when he finds a kashmiri student of the same interest.

The author has combined science with equal parts of religion and politics.He has succeeded to leave an impact as he has burnt the midnight oil toiled enough to give vivid pictures of happenings at various places under different circumstances with several things along the way.

Though this is a hard to explain kind of novel, the cover image and the tile what leads even a non-reader towards the book.But that is not enough for the story’s success.The author learns eventually.Details into the research were interesting at first, the author must have noted it cannot remain the same where the whole book is concerned.

The reader is taken for a ride at any stage of the story as the author is well versed in political background of many countries especially India, China and Pakistan.To highlight the cosmic metaphysics, a science of sound and effect may be novel in concept, but the author is very much matured enough to handle the subject comfortably.

Overall, the book can be termed as a crime thriller, political thriller, religious mystery and science fiction.A four in one novel.It’s a mind blowing read for those who have a thirst for knowledge about the universe and its mysteries.

Rating 3.5/5
