“Reality of being superhero is far more dangerous, than how it actually appears”
Nizam Ahmed, a 32 year old, Microsoft employee who currently resides in Hyderabad with his family, is a debutante Author of Faceless. The idea that he has brought up was very tricky to execute but the way he has handled the overall journey is noteworthy.
Faceless has its own pros and cons in it, but this may be purely subjected to personal opinion which may vary from person to person. Some may find this close to heart, Romantic or even a potential “100 crore movie” story while some may find it utterly boring. Since the audience and readers over here in India has been nourished with fast passed over the top fictional material, the realistic writing may be a bit un tolerable. But this is itself is also a form of writing that the readers has to come across and appreciate. Faceless tries to keep balance between the real life in depth narrative as well as the fast passed Action pack thriller indigents.
Faceless is the story of an IT geek who discovers some extra-ordinary powers within him. Kabir, a normal guy working in Techsys, is in love with his colleague Nat but unable to propose, fed up of his over loaded job thanks to his manager and to add is his friend Rick whose suggestions are making his love life more miserable. But when one fine day he notices the super powers his life changes drastically and what adventures crosses his way is the rest of story.
The light moments between Nat and Kabir are cute, while the Rick angle brings humor to the story. The first half is quiet fast paced or to say quiet positive in itself which moves the story faster but in later half something holds up the story. But everything is again matched up with the climax which is wonderful and quiet thrilling too. Over all the book is for patient readers who passes through the serious and narrative phase to enjoy the climax to its best. The impatient ones might quit in halfway, who will definitely miss a lot with references to the upcoming parts if there is any. Over all I’ll give it three stars out of five and will be adding to it to my personal favorites.
