Book Review: Bharathi and her theory of everything by Anil CS Rao

Title of the Book: Bharathi and Her Theory of Everything
Author: Anil CS Rao
Rating: 2/5

To Bharathi, this was utterly horrific. If it were indeed the case then she was conceived the same way she saw Aryaraj molest older inmates in the encampment. As a result of this mischievous Roopa’s revelation, Bharathi fell into a depression for (she had counted) forty days and forty nights. In her dreams, she recalled a very ancient story Roopa had shared with her a year before: about Noah, who bought two of every living thing on his arc when The World had been flooded by God’s anger at human being’s conduct on Earth. What would God think now about the semi-robotic people that inhabited Aryraraj’ s World? And worse: who was this God? Aryaraj often professed that he was eligible for this status or title.

My opinion
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds! Marcus Garvey
‘Bharathi is a young girl who drifts away into a world of her own. There she decides the flow of the story according to her own will. This world of hers has so many different characters and Bharathi is related to all of them.

The title of the book seems too long, yet not catchy. The cover is baffling. The book lacks a blurb and I had to go to Amazon to find out the plot summary because the narration is confusing. The overall idea is no doubt, very creative. But something is amiss.

The typesetting and font (style, size) are fine. The narration is lucid but it lack the inter connection. The first few chapters expose the readers to questions like- Who is Arun? How is Bharathi related to him? If she day dreams, then how does she dream of Arun? Has she met him before? The failure to get answers for these questions for quite some time may act as a turn off for the readers. Other than the plot, there are grammatical errors as well.

Overall, the concept is good. I wished the content was put forward in an easy way.
