What Next? Book Review




BOOK REVIEW NUMBER - 170 REVIEW: What Next? by Santhosh Gangadharan is an Epic combination of history and future. It has a futuristic approach with a historical plot. The plot of the book is very new and talks about history, culture, love, relationships, and science with a twist of mystery and thrill. It is an unpredictable book which will force you to accept the unexpected. You will be left guessing What Next? after each and every chapter. To add spice to the story, there is action and drama which will keep you entertained till the very last page. It is always interesting to see a historical fiction in a mystorical way. The use of actual historical names in the book makes it more real and believable. On the other hand, the characterization is also at its best. You will love the way each character is described in the book. Having read Santhosh Gangadharan's first book - Spinning Into Oblivion (SALISMANIA.com Best Thriller Book of the Year Award 2017 Winner), I think What Next? is much better when compared. On a personal note, it has the potential to win the SALISMANIA.com Best Author of the Year Award 2018. Overall, What Next? is a book which you should read next. I loved it and you will love it too. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!

That is what the quest is for. An Omani couple travels in India's Chandrayaan 8 mission to the moon. While in transit, strange things occur in the spacecraft. During the end of the 15th century, Vasco Da Gama travels to Calicut in India via Malindi, a kingdom on the eastern coast of Africa. Around the same time the great Omani traveller, Ahmed Ibn Majid also makes several voyages in these seas. Two sailor brothers from Liwa in Oman are destined to travel with Ahmed. Meanwhile, their pretty sister falls in love with a stranger who had come across the ocean to Liwa. Strange circumstances drive the lovers to elope from Oman to Calicut in India. Their past catches up with them and they disappear mysteriously, leaving their son under the tutelage of a local couple. Brave Abhay is adept in martial arts, and different languages and customs. Strange dreams of a man in distress perturb the boy and he sets off to find the man in his dreams. His travails take him through the jungles of Kerala braving the sniper war between the Moors (Arabs) and the Parangis (Portuguese). When he learns of his origin, he travels over the high seas to reach his roots in the hope of meeting the one who gave birth to him. In his homeland, he encounters the threat of the Portuguese and the evil from the past threatens his parents' existence. He has to act fast to protect his family from uncertain danger. He races against time to carry out his mission. The future of the couple in Chandrayaan is entangled with the past of a family in Liwa. What destiny has designed for each one cannot be changed. Rules have to be followed, albeit in ignorance. The soul has its way of drawing the life of its carrier. Nobody is allowed to edit what is already written. The voyage continues."
