Review of the book ‘The Code of Manavas by Arpit Bakshi’
Enthralling is what I would Say!!!
The Code of Manavas is a smooth and beautiful blend of Science and Mythology. First 40 or so pages of the book were dragging very slowly, but once past that hurdle, the book was simply captivating and kept you HOOKED to the very last page!
The Code of Manavas by Arpit Bakshi is part 1 of the Vishnu Trilogy. This is a story set in Madhavpur and Ayudhpur; the only cities that exist on Bhoomi (The erstwhile Earth). It’s 2 million past the year 2050, and the people here are not the ordinary humans but a new race of humans known as Manavas. Kali-Yuga has ended and the Swarnim-Yuga of Manavas is in imminent danger from a threat from the inside of the trusted people of Krishna, to usurp the Manava Clan for power revenge and greed and Nature itself. Nature has depleted its resources and taking its revenge, because of Humans meddling with Nature, their Greed, and Selfishness.
The Saviour; Past and The present:
The Protagonist Krishna is a scientist and the sole reason of humans A.K.A Manavas survival after the Apocalypse of The Earth. The Founder of Bhoomidian, an organic compound which is keeping Bhoomi Manavas intelligent, free of old age and illness. But here is a catch!!! Bhoomidian has an adverse effect on Bhoomi’s geological system.
Like in Dwaparyuga, Krishna is doing his utmost to save the Manavas in Swarnim Yuga.
Will Krishna be able to save Manavas?
Praise for the Author
Author Arpit Bakshi has done a very good job of naming the characters after many names of Krishna and Radha. Krishna, Mohan, Shyam, Radhika, Meera, Vallabha and many more… The spell Author cast on his readers is as musical and sweet as Krishna’s flute. He has done thorough research in Science and Mythology. And the concoction we get of these 2 poles apart genres is simply mind-blowing, it leaves you for craving more.
The book and the narration
Language is very easy to understand. Scientific terms used in the book are nicely explained and makes the whole experience of reading very thrilling. The book is very fast paced. The Code of Manavas leaves you in Cliffhanger, wanting more – craving more.
Why I recommend it!
Oh! It’s a must must read. And I assure you, that you won’t regret a bit. WAITING FOR THE SECOND PART OF THE BOOOOK!!!!
