Agniputr - Book reviewed

Agniputr-When Agni first spokeAgniputr-When Agni first spoke by Vadhan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an author autographed copy for review.
Am not very fond of sci fi books or movies hence was a bit sceptical when I started reading it. But surprisingly I started enjoying it as I went on reading it. It was one of the first of its kind by an Indian author as far as I know.
All characters are super heroes so in the climax it is a war between super heroes. Despite there being a protagonist his role is diluted by the villain who reigns in the book.
It is an out and out fantasy and since am not a science student am not sure whether the scientific parts in the book are facts or fiction made to sound credible. For me it was all fantasy.
I wish the characters were a bit more fleshed out and the plot woven a bit more tightly. There were times when I got the feeling that the author was aimlessly rambling.
The typos and grammatical errors too, though not too many, were like speed breakers for me.
Overall, if a little more effort had gone into editing, would have been a much more enjoyable experience.
