WRITING STYLE: 2.5/5
ENTERTAINMENT QUOTIENT: 3/5
As I sit down writing this review, I am sure the name must have amazed you. I surely cannot blame you, for I myself was equally, if not more, amazed when I first heard the title, and later when I came across the book cover.
The title may seem either intriguing or simply dumb depending on what way we choose to perceive.
For me, it was definitely the second, and just after reading the title and seeing the cover (which again proved to be a great disappointment), I was arrogantly assured of the book’s worthlessness.
While I was reading the second chapter, the thought crossed my mind that the book may not be sub-standard, and no sooner did I start reading the third chapter that my thoughts were confirmed.
What I was reading was a good story and a uniquely exclusive plot. I was happy; in fact, I was over joyous, and it was just like having discovered a new place altogether.
Rahul Kapoor has surely done a job worth applaud and appreciation, and this book is definitely one which you, in no circumstances, should miss.
The climax, though little predictable towards the end, does not spoil the reading pleasure.
The inclusion of concepts like the ‘Sleeping Beauty Syndrome’ and ‘The Healing Point’ surely add a mystery and intrigue to an already interesting storyline.
Rahul is a young schoolboy who is ever happy with the newfound company of his friend Radhika, a new entry to the sixth standard.
But before Rahul gets enough opportunity to relish the company of Radhika’s friendship, she leaves all of a sudden without even bothering to say goodbye, just leaving a simple worded ‘Thank You’.
Long after Radhika has left and Rahul has become a young man in his twenties, he finds himself being offered a top paying job with NIH, America’s top-rated health research agency.
Soon after his induction, he finds himself in peculiar circumstances and in the close company of one Ms. Karren, a top-notch scientist and youngest researcher of the NIH, who is hell-bent upon taking Rahul to a mission unknown to mankind; a mission full of uncertainties and the unknown; a mission where going can also mean never back.
So what is this mission about? Who is Ms. Karren and why is she so insistent upon taking Rahul to the mission? Will Rahul go to the mission and can he ever come back? Will Radhika ever find a way back into Rahul’s life? Is there any connection between Radhika and Karren? What is the secret which Karren is so secretly hiding from Rahul? And what is this sleeping beauty syndrome? Does it have any connection to the mission?
To answer these and many more questions it is imperative that you read this amazing story and find it yourself.
