Pages: 200, Paperback

Published: 2016 by Notion Press

Invoked is the first book in the series of Hymns of War (a very thoughtful title, in my opinion) written by Karan Bhatia. The book is a horror thriller in the fiction genre and some of the scenes are dark and terrifying enough to give one goosebumps.

The plot revolves around Krishna, a common man who is teacher at the university, and leads a simple life with his wife, daughter and his parents. An accident changes the fate of the whole family. These attacks starts like baby steps, small, as warnings but soon turn fatal and the life of Krishna becomes painful and intolerable.

I know Harari’s work is famous and that might be a turn off for you but give me a chance in this review to let you convince to give it a shot in the coming year. Read this one book, even if you don’t have any reading plans or generally do not read books, or haven’t read it.

Why? Because this book will transform the way you think about everyone you are surrounded and yourself. Harari’s work which was published in 2011 for the first time, did not spike my interest until later this year and I think, it has a major impact on me. In Sapiens, Harari talks about how out of 6 similar species our own, Homo Sapiens, not only survived over 70,000 years including the environmental conditions but is actually the reality of How Humans Got Smart?
