I m not sure whether Padmanabhan thinks men are innately aggressive evil or whether it s a result of all the men in the book having been raised in a misogynistic state, but the gender implications

The ocassional Pans, Dal Rotis and Dhotis, amidst the worst possible convergence of extreme technological advancement, socialism and communism is refreshing to read I found the premise of the book to be extremely promising and enjoyed the book overall, though I felt the slow pacing made it dull inthan one place The two main characters, a genetically altered teenage girl who is hidden by her three Uncles, is taken on a dangerous journey by the youngest uncle to escape her bleak present and future The book has mature content and points at pedophilia from time to time One of the great points of this book is its effective world building, that left me aghast The soulless, genetically engineered human drones was a spine chilling concept A land devoid of freedom, where one entire gender is eliminated and the one that remains is under fear and oppression of the half human, half machine leaders contributed to the heavy read The book is dark, gritty and made me uncomfortable and I mean it as a credit to the author.Where the book failed though, was in its verbosity I felt that so many scenes could have been cut short and the book could have been at least 100 pages shorter I kept reading

seems to be going for an Atwood esque dystopian novel exploring where some of the misogynistic ideas of today may take us when coupled with cloning technologies and warlords The scenes and rela I have

Padmanabhan seems to want to write one of those sci fi series in which entire worlds are created for multiple volumes This apparent second ambition leads to the two main weaknesses of the novelpainfully slow pacing in some parts, and an awful ending contrived only to demand a sequel Disappointed with the climax 3.75 stars What a weird, uncomfortable, fascinating book I ll writewhen the
