The main idea of this science fiction book reminds me of one of my favorite short stories, "A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury. The theoretical guess that time might happen to be another dimension of the world is exciting and, at the same time, terrifying. If so would time travel mix causes with their consequences? Is it even possible to imagine? Well, this is exactly what the author is trying to do. Nevertheless, the book is not just about time travel. It opens a door to one of the possible futures. Everything is so different there that Qin, the main character, who just woke up after more than twenty years, couldn’t bear the new world. Still he has to find a piece with this world, and also to solve his own puzzle. This book is for those who enjoy diving into author’s fantasy in details, step by step; for those readers, who are smart and are not afraid of complex long sentences ¿ Also the story is very logical, starting from the very beginning, from the four hypothesizes, one of which is about time travel. I really enjoyed the mathematical approach of the author. The book forces to think beyond and above, that’s why I would call the book a hard science fiction piece.

This is a novel that makes you use your brain. It tells a unique story with a twist at the end. I enjoyed the richness of the descriptivism and the unusual views of the writer. If you are looking for a book that is out of the ordinary, Kalki Evian is worth the time.

Because of the literary style, this is not a book to pick up and read during commercial breaks on television. At first, the words teased me. That's how different the author's approach is in this masterpiece. I wondered how long it takes to grasp a new concept. But what prompts us to judge anything? Perhaps it's another way of thinking—subtleties emerging in and out of consciousness to give us understanding. Of course in a book, you can't gather information by shape, sound, smell, or feeling, but words can create them in your mind. Malay approaches deep subjects in a novel way. His glimpse of the future is so real and so logical that I almost believe it will happen. But, in this book, we can take nothing as it first appears. The plot expands in a manner that is slow enough to allow comprehension, via an overview of events. You could imagine yourself holding a camera, diving in and out of each person's mutterings to capture pictures displayed in your mind rather than on a screen. The plot is pleasantly thought-provoking, and questions the reality underlying all our concepts. Throughout the story, you follow two sets of people in their own scenes. The main characters are wounded, perplexed people who must learn to trust, to adjust to living in different surroundings, and to change their way of thinking. Omnipresent point of view, written with panache and flair, allows you to understand the elusive interplay of every character's reaction. I came away from reading this book with a new awareness and a questioning mind.

Kalki Evian was recommended to me by a friend and at first I wasn’t sure what to expect. The cover image is intriguing but it’s difficult to see an image of a ring these days and not think of Tolkein. However, once I got a number of pages in I began to be pulled deeply into the story. At essence it’s kind of a butterfly effect idea but is very well written, the characters are well developed and before long you find yourself really rooting for them. Different possibilities, different choices, different realities. What’s not to love?

Imagine having the ability to time travel back to a specific moment in order to rearrange and or alter what might have been a disaster into a different and better future. But, beware the cost...the consequences. In his new book Malay Upadhyay takes his readers on a journey that is sometimes fragmented and super intense. Even confusing at times, but eventually I found myself relaxing into his storytelling technique and really found his book interesting  and satisfying. Even plausible. I hope you will give this book the time it needs to seduce you into this young authors style, and you will find it was worth the time. This is a good read.
