Exit Point – Book Review





























                                 Exit Point –  On the Internet no one knows you are dead...

                                                                  Author – Anil Goel


“What lies beneath?”
An Australian intelligence officer wonders, as she sees terrible burn marks on sharks that go berserk off the coast of Bondi Beach.
A super-intelligent teenage girl is found dead with no apparent cause and her father, implicated in another murder in the same house, at the same time, insists he doesn’t know how she died.
The investigating team gets a mysterious tip-off – that the girl was chatting with another teenager on a social networking site at the exact time she died.
 A young reclusive tech genius is contemplating a suicide pact with an online soul mate who suddenly disappears.
What ties these strange incidents together?
Set in a chillingly probable 2016, Exit Point takes us into a dark, mysterious online world where an ancient mystery is unraveling after centuries. A mystery that cuts across Australia, India, China, Hong King, London, America – and ultimately all of mankind.
From Adam and Eve.
To us.
Our only hope of getting to the bottom of it, literally, is Alok – and his quest to find his intimate.
At all of 17 years of age, he saved a country.
At 25, can he save humanity?

            The summary got me hooked and I couldn’t wait to start reading this book. I love reading thrillers. Something that links to ancient mystery is all the more enjoyable to me.  This book has an amazing start and got me hooked almost immediately. I couldn’t keep the book down and I am glad that I chose to read this after I was done with my exams. The book does get a bit slow in the middle because it becomes too descriptive but once you are able to cope with that it is an amazing read.
The book touches upon very interesting topics making it all the more interesting and a good read.  
It is a must read for whoever enjoys thrillers and mysteries and also for those who are just starting with that genre.
