The Prophecy of Trivine by Pulkit Gupta, Srivatsan Sridharan and Tnahsin Garg: a review

The Prophecy of Trivine by three debut writers namely, Pulkit Gupta, Srivatsan Sridharan and Tnahsin Garg is a book of purity. Stunning revelations, truth about human beings and their existence makes this book a must read for everyone.

According to the back cover- An emissary of an advanced alien race travels to the Earth to undertake responsibility of an experiment that has gone out of control. The outcome of this fateful experiment, which was conceived millions of years ago by her species, now rests in her hands. As she prepares to deliver her final judgment, she comes across three young men in a sacred forest who change her life forever. These three men- a scientist, a hacker and an artist-happen to take refuge in that forest, trying to escape from the oddities of their own unfair lives. Struggling with their dreams and demons, they begin to explore the dark and paranormal behavior of the forest by forging a companionship. From the rare flora and fauna breathing alive on the ground to deadly wide expanse of the whimsy black sky, everything they find is yet another puzzle unsolved. Little did they know that four of them hold in their hands the future of mankind, and much beyond imagination, they are connected through an ancient Prophecy that was long lost in the sands of time.

Coming to think of it, the twists and turns of events throughout the story keeps the reader turning pages until the book finishes. The way the story has been told and the way the narration has been given, doesn’t even leave a speck of error in the book.

In no way can a reader say that the book is co-authored by three people. The writers play with the imagination of the readers through the way they have fantasized their storyline giving loads of spaces for the reader to explore.

The explanations, the storyline does their best in capturing the readers attention from the time it takes speed till the end. The end is such that the reader wants to read more of it, expecting a sequel maybe of the book.

For the first few pages, 50 or so, the explanation seems a bit haphazard but then the reader gets a pace of the writing and then the book doesn’t leave the reader till the end. The effects of the revelations are so much in the minds of the readers that the reader is left to think ‘why didn’t I think of it before?’

All in all, a capturing read, I would like to give the book 4.75 out of 5, congratulating the immense efforts by the team they have put into the book in writing, researching and revealing.
