It helps that the novel seems to fluctuate between deadpan seriousness, sly humour and outright farce. E.g.: "Since time immemorial, citizens could expedite or prioritize their requests for a fee...the Exceptional Treatment Allowance (ExTrA)." The Great Leader's memoir is extracted as a gift to a "model young citizen", and that is a nice touch. There is a particularly unexpected twist when the aforesaid model young citizen meets the Great Leader in person...
If you are looking for a straightforward, linearly-plotted thriller this is not for you. It's a more slow-burning, thought-provoking work.
Oh, everything is not so gloomy, erm.. as long as you are not outcasts, most things work perfectly in the nation though. Each person is given a task according to their ability, the children are trained at what was required for their chosen lives. The nation represents what could be achieved with a great leader with a vision. Dvarca might be a little difficult to get into initially but it gets gripping as it can be. Be warned of the cliffhanger though.
Author has built up his characters very well and the way he portrays different scenarios through them does the wonder a reader expects in a book. Author talks about our past, present and future in such a manner that you can actually relate with few of the things. The book talks about all the problems that we are facing in our country and how a great leader can change all of it. The discussion of mythology and how it is related with this fast-paced story is commendable. I liked the mythology part the most. The book is written as if it is a poetry which does not make you in slowing down your reading pace.
It is one of the few books which manage to talk substance, seriousness along with the pinch of humour and satire. The satirical takes are so mature that I believed the writer is a full-time editor for a National daily. The only drawback is that the initial pages are very tough to understand because of the unnatural way of writing but once the characters are built up completely, you start enjoying the backdrop of the novel. I give this book 3.75* out of 5. I am waiting for 2nd part now.
