There are three distinct parts to this story, following a prologue that is quite chilling. The story starts with Levan Lamarr about to die of cancer before his wife Mira is to give birth to their child. Then he is offered help by Dr Jonah Salter, who speaks to them through an android called Eve, who happens to have Jonah's face. Jonah will pay Lev and Mira $5 million if he consents to an attempt to cure him, even though the procedure has always failed in the past. Since Mira would be financially ...more

This book contains one of the unique concepts I have read so far, and I have read quite a bit. The storyline weaving between generations carries along with it key plot points that build the case for a story you have never heard before.

The author, Hari Kumar Nair does not shy away from the science in science fiction. Some of the concepts discussed in the book, in fact, all the concepts discussed gives off the feeling of reality manifesting within the pages of the story. A story becomes very

While I dabble in reading some amount of fantasy fiction, have never ventured into science fiction as a genre. Must say, my first foray has been great with Intersection Man. Although, the length of the book was daunting at first, once I started, it turned out to be a very engaging read (albeit one that demands a lot of focus from the reader to follow the plot and character twists). When the science and technology becomes too creative (and it truly is), the author helpfully steps in with detailed ...more

This is a very interesting work of fiction. The author clearly did a thorough research and thought everything through. The premise of the novel is very original, and complex scientific concepts are beautifully intertwined with a simple, yet moving story. Rich illustrations are very helpful in visualising creative futuristic technology.

The novel is broken down into three books and all of them have distinctive feel. My definite favourite was the first one. I liked the story, the characters and

Great Mix of Science and Sci Fi

I loved the beginning of this book, it was fresh, exciting, and had some great new twists on the multiverse and AI themes. I felt like the story bogged down a bit in the middle and I could have foregone some of the human drama (others might greatly appreciate it.) The end of the book also had some fresh and intriguing twists. It was a page turner and for the most part it was very well written and a most enjoyable read.

It was mindboggling! Let me tell you something upfront.It's not exactly a literary feat, but it was one hell of a roller coaster for sure! The premise and the intrigue of the novel are simply awesome.There is lots of science and a lot more creative effort here.Some of the parts are still unclear to me, but that's just because I am a bit slow.Strongly recommended for those who liked the movies like 'Interstellar.' Waiting for the sequel.
Kudos Hari.Not bad for a new author, not bad at all !!
