Start the book and the first page itself has you: Without any ado, without any preamble, comes this 'The aircraft skidded off the runway and crashed into a jeep parked near the boundary walls of the airport'. It draws you in. You recall the 'Get ready for a spine-chilling ride' written on the jacket of the book, is not written casually.
Readers familiar with the author's first book would recall that premonitions are something that the author has confessed witnessing first hand. In this book though, it gets extended to the 'medium' that entwines the fate, the destiny. We encounter the question: Is the fate written? Is the future decided already, by the Almighty? Is there a 'Medium' that binds the events of future? It's absolutely remarkable to see these get used as a motif: still keeping the subject as light and easy.
The story starts ' yes, with a premonition about a plane crash. Yes, a premonition. And, then another plane ride ' the ill-fated flight, as the author calls it. (A bit of digression here, as I'm tempted to ask, if the fate is written, then why the fate would be written as ill? Is He, the creator, gets a kick to destroy first and then do the good?). A few minutes into the take-off, all but three of these people are dead. Pulse racing, flipping a few more pages and you find yourself gripped in the backstories of every character. Story of every moving like a sinusoidal curve: An aspiring actor to a pilot, Professor to a restaurateur ' Seemingly improbable on the face but the author wins us by making the characters believable. It's utterly fascinating to see the author treating his readers as 'Intelligent', and not make everything a breeze! Hold on, doesn't mean the readers are dumb or the writers treat them as one. I would like to believe that there would be moments of temptation to play safe, thoughts running in the mind 'Is the story becoming convoluted? '. This is ambitious stuff, and it worked. Use of palindromes and anagrams to convey a philosophical point was great.
Not just that the book is brimming with intelligent observations (Some of them reminded me of the first book) like celebrities in the plane crossing the alley 'Maybe it was an admission of guilt that they did not deserve such adulation'. I found this particular one profound, and how these details have been observed masterfully. Somewhere along two-thirds of it, the book draws you in ' makes you go back, flip a few pages and you've that eureka moment 'Jeez, that's what the author has been implying'?
I'm glad that the ' Fables of Fatal Tale ' has a new volume in the name of 'Get One Bye Two', and is a welcome addition in 'Keeping us Reading'.
The characters in the novel are earthy, albeit dramatic to an extent, but completely believable.Once one gets into the plot, it is difficult to keep the book till it ends. A refreshingly new idea and an extremely readable novel where-in the incidents of destiny continue to occur in a click clack chain manner in the lives of main protagonists and their derivatives. It lends one to believe that those do happen in real life too. And, then, theories of Physics, enunciated by Baba Ji, add credence to majority of the events in the lives of characters. The book takes the Reader in moods of suspense, thrill and romance plotted scene by scene.
This novel could be prized possession of any individual library.
The concept of split is completely new and beautifully illustrated by the author. At every moment it kept me curious and thrilled, what is going to happen next and specially the last part of the book which kept me on my toes and built the anxiety as to who would survive and who would not ...
I am sure this can be converted into a big Hollywood thriller.
All the very best to Dhiraj and I am sure we would get to read many more thrillers from him.
Here now I am waiting to have another edition from Author.............
After ' Point Ten Zeroes....' I took this book on 1st day after launch and found it equally interesting.
Surprised! How PCM related to life so closely.
Recommending reading something NEW about SPLITS to wonder if all this is TRUE! Trully, presented in an effective manner.
Looking forward for the next one.....
Dhiraj's knack of deciphering laws of science into life happenings or vice versa is unparalleled. The concepts of splits and linking the fate to Quantum mechanics is beautifully rendered in the book.
Eagerly awaiting the next one from Dhiraj!!!
