HAARP was set up with the intent of researching weather modification and it was probably done so with the intent of solving global problems. But as is usually the case, atleast in fiction, the results were not what was expected. Extreme weather changes leading to natural disaster that wiped out a lot of life and infrastructure and as such the initiative was closed down. That did not stop the experiments… and with a device embedded in the Himalayas that can have tremendous ramifications, a hunt is on!
The book has a slow start as the authors take their time in giving background information to the readers and setting up the main characters for the story. As expected from a cli-fi, a certain amount of the information provided dealt with climate, the experiments that were undertaken and their implications. Once the base is built the book takes on the pace of an action thriller and there’s not a single dull moment. As for characters, with (almost) the whole world affected by the changes, all the major nations have a team looking into the matter. As such there is a wide set of characters and the cast involves people from agencies like CIA, R&AW, ISI, KGB, ASIS, to name a few. Then there are the suspects and the antagonists. All in all, it is a varied cast where each team brings in something different to offer to the plot. Their different personalities and quirks keep things interesting even though the books focus is more on the events than the characters.
The main aspect of the book is to make the readers realize the importance of treating nature right. I hope that when the readers realize the scope of the catastrophes waiting to happen whether human induced or otherwise, they will show some respect towards Mother Nature. At the same time it makes the readers also wonder if similar experiments can be carried out in reality to solve problems like global warming. This book delivers on many levels; from drama to action to suspense to food for thought, there is enough to keep the readers immersed in the pages. The narrative is crisp and the descriptions in book help the readers visualize each scene as they unfold.
As with thrillers spanning across countries and involving groups from the globe, this story which is taunted as a cli-fi thriller also involves teams from India, Pakistan, Australia, US to name a few. Once the premise of the story is set and the main characters are established, the story takes off at high speed exploring the motives of the different groups involved. As the intelligence groups keep interrogating new suspects and new clues are found, the path to the mystery keeps unleashing. The narrative is kept tight till the end, so are the characters who have their own purpose and the writers succeed in keeping the characters discrete.
Climate as a cause of terror is a relatively unexplored genre, hence the story has a fresh feel. Also the places and incidents used are real with a dose of fiction thrown so the narrative feels real for the most part. The book is an absolute page turner with the suspense building up as the story proceeds. A seasoned reader of thrillers might be able to catch the clues well ahead, however the book is unputdownable till the end. Also, given the closing of the book, I hope there is a sequel planned as the story has more potential to be explored. Pick this one to be taken on a multi-country thrilling ride, as climate change and its repercussions on economies and citizens are gaining maximum importance in current times.
Climate, weather, the super powers, can man control them?? Imagine if a person or a country develops the means to orchestrate weather as per their liking. It can create havoc!
Decoding the feronia files is a race against weather warfare.
The authors - Tanushree Podder and Ajoy Podder have beautifully woven an intriguing and engaging story line. The language is simple and easy to understand. No doubt it is a unique story and icing on the cake is the amount of detailing the authors have gone into.
No matter which year, which part of the world you are in, the story connects countries and is a beautiful blend of fact and fiction. Infact it often makes one think what is what and what not!
I am just stopping myself from revealing anything further. Go and grab it for yourself I am sure there won't be any regrets.
I'll rate it a 4.5/5.... just a .5 less...as there were a couple of places I wanted to know more about and reasons around. :)
