My Review

Time Crawlers is an astounding science-fiction that dwells deeper in the realms of the parallel universe and mystical things alike. Encompassing 6 different stories, the book offers a cup of intellect to savor and pushes you to imagine and ponder.

Science fiction, though is an interesting genre, never intrigued me. But reading this book was altogether a different experience. The concepts discussed in the book are treated very well. They are put forth in the form of 6 different stories which binds the reader. I personally love short stories and so, this book turned out to be amazing for me. The nature of the book is simple and compelling enough to make its readers curious. Curious to read more and learn more. The things we might not even think of in our daily lives have been given weight in the book.

The six stories were-

  • Hell Weapon talks about the havoc wreaked by the voice-activated lethal weapon, also known as Nark Astra Prayaschakt. While reading it, you wouldn’t get an impression of reading a mythological tale. Rather, the biological and nuclear warfare techniques blended with fiction gives the whole story a distinct flavor.

The part of science that you don’t understand will always look like magic to you.

  • Death by Crowd took away my breath. People literally sacrificed their lives by burning themselves alive for the well-being of their near and dear ones. A sacrificial performance is being broadcasted and it was incredulous to know that people paid for it. The terminally ill patients find it the only way to get rid of their suffering who die in self-created hellfire. And the creator of this technique – a highly advanced Artificial Intelligence!
  • Genie was a simple story wherein a person gets to busts his djinn myth.
  • Time Crawlers stresses on the people living out of time or I should say, the ones who live in multiple time periods simultaneously. Sounds quirky, right?
  • Eclipse throws light on the 4th dimension species. How amazing it would be to discover the shapeshifter aliens! According to it, tomorrow is nothing but a box of lies. 
  • The Cave deals with an advanced concept of telekinetics. I wouldn’t play a spoilsport talking about the story but trust me, the revelations will blow your mind.

The author has dealt with subtle topics intelligently. No verbosity, no grand expressions and at no place, I found the stories stretching unnecessarily. I guess this turned the odds in the author’s favor. I liked the unbelievable and unimaginable themes put forth so simply that it would actually make the person read the book in one go! (I finished it in one seating.)

The smooth narrative, the proper language combined with good storytelling made up for a heck of an enriching reading experience. Do do do Read this book and cherish the vague and mystical world of parallel universe. Remember,

Those who dance are considered insane by those who can’t hear the music.
