The Calcutta Chromosome

The story definitiely begins as a Science fiction and Ghosh's Ava (Antar's super intelligent computer) is something very gruelling in today's scenario. This book feeds some good nutrient on Microbiology and British effort of developing Indian camps (Calcutta, Secunderabad etc)
Ghosh also narrated old Calcutta well with budding real estate giants, bengali food, calcutta streets, age old craftsmen making idols, PG hospital and Sealdah station back then and many more scenes where Calcutta remain...

Interesting begining but looses tempo.

It's a science fiction set in history and in future, however most of the story happens in 1990s.

Author has been able to create the mystique atmosphere. The book is very interesting in the beginning but the same level of interest is not maintained till the end. The end, which should take the story to crescendo, seems abrupt. I thought that author could have made the last section of the book more interesting.

You have to read the book carefully and with attention so as not to miss important...

Bad quality

This book leads us through the streets of Calcutta, Bengali culture, British colonial past and most importantly the development of medical science & discovery of malaria. But hang on; this was supposed to be a thriller unwinding all the mysteries and drawing a single conclusion to say the least. That's where it went wrong. The ending is not convincing at all and would let the reader search for some missing pages( I wish I could get few more pages giving explanation ).
