I was lucky to read the book in advance. It is a book about what our world is facing today. with ageing population managing the old age. it is tricky. will the human alike robots be the answr.?. It is narrated very well through young Aalot's point of view. I'm confident there will be series to come attracting many readers arou nd the globe.
I was given an advance copy of Aalot’s Revenge which turned out to be a mesmerising read aimed at Young Adults although I feel sure that older readers would also enjoy this dystopian novel.
Aalot is quadriplegic and has a tendency to be logical rather than emotional. With an intellect very advanced for his years, and aided and abetted by his friend, Lavanya, Aalot begins the process of revenge on his parents who have always neglected him by putting their careers and reputation first.
Employing a self-invented digital ability, Aalot is able to secretly influence his parents and sets out to discredit them.
Set against a background of past ‘troubles’, which is the name given to something that happened in the past involving androids, Aalot is also introduced to a remote and secretive figure who becomes an adversary that he is only too ready to take on.
All this is related in a flowing narrative, with hard facts absorbed into the story enabling an entertaining read. And, excitingly, there has been talk of a second ‘Aalot’ book and I can’t wait.
