Book Review: After Annihilation by Gauri Mittal


The year is 2034.

Madhavi is one among group of five friends, fresh out of engineering college, who land jobs in different cities of Iddis. But before their life can take off, war comes. In a series of sudden, blinding flashes of light, millions of lives are lost, incinerated in the fiery heat of a nuclear exchange that threatens to end the human race forever.

At first, it seems Madhavi is the only one left alive in a world that has been devastated by global conflict. With nuclear fallout set to eliminate any survivors, finding sanctuary seems impossible, until she is rescued to Shunya, where begins a life she never wanted to live.

Final Rating: 5/5

The cover is very bright. It has an image of effects after a Catastrophic Disaster.

The title “After Annihilation: Would you want to survive?” is unique. It implies that the world has come to an end, with you being a Survivor.

The blurb of the novel is short, clear and engaging.

The book talks about a new Era in future. It looks to me like a Movie. The protagonist Madhvi survives after a war, shows some courage while dealing with the uncertainties.

The Book is really engaging and very well imagined and thought provoking. The good use of Vocabulary added to the experience.

Overall, I would recommend it to Sci-fi Lover and say that it’s a great read, nothing less than a movie.
