Feb. 18, 2020
Rajat Chaudhuri
Fiction: General/Other
It has always been a central tendency of the human condition to strive for progress. Along the way mistakes happen or sometimes plans do not work, hope being another admirable human trait we tend to pick up the pieces and move on.

Rajat Chaudhuri’s new Dystopian novel The Butterfly Effect deals with yet another set of human experiments gone wrong. This book has a nested structure where both the first and the last sections are titled “Captain Old and the Living Dead of the Darkland”, the second and other sections are titled “P.I Kar’s Korean Adventure”, and so on. The stories narrated in these sections take place in different timelines and geographical locations enunciates this effect. The author’s virtuosity stands out when he later weaves these tales together and we treated to the artistry of a creative storyteller.

Other Information:

‘Chaudhuri’s book is different because of the way in which he has shaded Calcutta into his futuristic
world. In the book, the capital of the Asian darklands, the second city of the British Empire, has come into its gloomy own.’ Outlook India

‘This timely novel explores a dystopian Asian future, the result of interference with nature. Rajat Chaudhuri’s ‘The Butterfly Effect’ blends mystery, eco-fiction and a Russian doll narrative.’
