Which Biblical Weapon was Tested in Shaksgam Valley? Why is Mansur Haider Important? Is There a

Solution to the Kashmir Crisis? Can Destiny be Controlled? Does a Cosmic Religion Exist?

The blurb built a high level of enthusiasm in me and to be honest my mind said that this would probably be something close to a Dan Brown that India can produce. Not to forget is the cover of the book – two eyes, an Om – very Indian and it seemed like an open invite to devour the secrets hidden within the book and the eyes itself.

The things that struck me initially were how the author warned against us going through the images in the books in advance as they might act as spoilers and also how Clark Prasad requested us reviewers not to give away the details of the plot in blogs and other social media.

A few pages done, I was all ready to read the entire story, but what hit me hard was the amount of facts and sub-plots as if the author was trying his level best to convince the reader that his is a strong faultless story. I have to admit that reading this book was exhausting and it took a very long time than what 350ish pages are supposed to take.

The author brings topics that are very close to the hearts of Indians – cricket, terrorism and Kashmir and whips up an exhausting read. Maybe, just maybe, the length could have been reduced a wee bit.

The effort and the amount of work that has been done for this book is highly commendable. Baramulla Bomber is definitely a great book for those who love intense thrillers, but I think people like me should give it a pass. 

I got Clark Prasad’s Baramulla Bomber in exchange for an honest review from the Books for Review program @ WriteTribe.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
