The duo is astounded on deducing that the society’s darkest minds are connected through a network to have their machinations come to life as justice for the rest of the society. As Rhea and Siddhanth try to survive the surreal reality, Toggle will not entertain people meddling with their convoluted plans…
The book’s title was intriguing so I wanted to read this book. The title itself suggests that the story is based on time travelling into the future.
The book revolves around the year 2035 where there is a developed world which is ruled by the technology. There is less of human interaction and more of dependency on the Robots. The author narrates the story of Rhea – smart, intelligent, ambitious youngster and Syd- son of a minister who was living his life with guilt in China. In the era of AI controlled world, something connects Rhea and Syd.
What is their relationship and how are they connected? Why was Syd living with Guilt?
This book is focused on the boons and curses of the techonology which has made us all their slaves. The author has explained every aspect of life in the year 2035 in a very interesting as well as a scary way. The characters were well built.The emotions of characters are so very well portrayed, that nothing feels unreal. The twists and turns kept me hooked. The language used by the author is easy and understandable . The narration is smooth and the book is well paced.
Definitely recommended to all the fantasy lovers.
