Book Review : Hexagon (Author : Ishaan Lalit)

DELHITE AUTHOR, Ishaan Lalit is all set to bring out his second effort titled Hexagon. What is it like, you ask? Well, to summarize, it’s a tasty cocktail of Dan Brown’s history-and-myth induced thrillers, topped with the best of Michael Mann with a garnish of Frank W. Abagnale’s 'Catch Me If You Can'.

His first release “The Bracelet” painted a captivating picture about otherworldly creatures, lost family member and politics. The 2nd book of Ishaan Lalit is named “Hexagon” which is a Science fiction thriller. Yes, all of us have seen the Hollywood movies with the same genre but a book?? And that too by an Indian author?? And that too by the one who is in his late 20s?? I am sure you are as surprised as me. More surprising is that this book is a Non-fictional attempt. According to the author, Hexagon is racy, fast moving and a thrilling tale about the protagonist, Rahul Oberoi is an art thief. And a great one as he has never been caught. But his golden run doesn’t stand the test of time. Eventually he gets caught along with his girlfriend and partner in crime, Ria. But lucky for them, and us, they don’t go to prison. 

Are you inherently hooked up on geeky science fiction and just can’t get enough of them? Do you spend your time tucked into your duvet reading the latest sci-fi thriller and get so absorbed in it that you can’t get over your book hangover for a while? If the answer is yes, then here is your next fix. Writing is brilliant not too caustic but with a little sarcasm and almost innocent charm that causes you to lose all sense of time. From the fascinating other worldly creatures in The Bracelet to the violent wars of different universes in hexagon , Ishaan Lalit is clearly trying to give his readers a ride, keeping them on their toes while letting his imagination run amok. The book is now out in the stores and is available for the readers.
