DAM 999 tells a heart-rending story of the corruption that is prevalent in society in the present times.
Summary Of The Book
DAM 999: A Novel is a story that is based on the lives of nine characters. These characters are based on the nine emotions that humans feel which are known as the Navarasa. The story begins with the introduction of two characters that are mariners and have just made their way back home. These mariners are oblivious of the severe political tension that surrounds the presence of an ancient dam. This dam happens to be just behind the home of the mariners.
As the story advances, readers are introduced to another character that goes on to build a new dam in the area. This character is symbolic of greed in human nature. The new dam has been made without keeping in mind any of the necessary safety norms. As a result of this, the lives of millions of people are under threat.
The novelist does an excellent job in portraying the problems faced by the people as a result of the new dam being built and also focusses on their struggle for survival.
DAM 999: A Novel has been adapted into a movie, entitled DAM 999 as well. The movie has been directed by the author himself, and has been produced by BizTV Network.

An adequate gift to the masochist readerAbsolutely pathetic piece of writing, this book is. Nearly 95% of this book is meaningless and poorly crafted drivel and barely 10 pages has any relevance to the dam, which has brought this book so much ill earned publicity. Most of the book is a sort of self aggrandizing by the author about himself and merchant marine sailors. Could finish reading this book only through innate obsessive compulsive masochism in me as a reader to finish it and exorcise it out of my system.

a good bookits a good book. but at starting you would find it a little boring and wold not understand what is written in the book and why the title of the book in DAM 999. BUT after about 150 pages you would find the story a good one and interesting. In short its a nice and decent book.

Informative StuffI had no idea what was going through my mind when i decided to opt this book to order. May be the title of the book or because the author was new. Well but as i look back on my choice i am glad that i ordered it. It gave me a lot of insight which i definitely didn't know about the marine world. I enjoyed my ride through the marine world.

Neat!!!I am quite choosy about what I read, seeing the news on the movie fly around. I grabbed a copy and sat through the weekend to complete it. I must say the novel is quite interesting. This is sure a collectors edition.
