it was amazing

I really enjoyed this book. The author created a vulnerable protagonist who succeeds against the opposition and distractions. I found the relentless progress through careful and difficult work inspiring. The engineer grows through the pages and the quality of writing and detailed observation of his inner struggle endeared him to me. Many of us scratch fearfully at closed doors. I was reminded of Camus, both in theme of freedom through action and love, and through the use of extended allegory.

Biswarup yeah exactly.....it reminded me of Camus and specially "The Plague". I felt it less of historical novel and more of Existentialism.

Reassuring to learn that I wasn't alone. I too thought of "The Plague" and the Existentialism.
