The Left Roof: A Way to the Infinity World

I selected "The Left Roof" by Nathawat brothers just looking at its cover. The blurb of the book was equally interesting. A sci-fi is written for the age group of 10-18 year, 'The Left Roof' can be a good read for the targeted audience.


Book Blurb
Alfred Riston is a twenty-two-year-old college student who is heartbroken by his mother's abandonment of her family. As he attempts to grapple with his pain, he begins experiencing strange visions and hearing a voice that seems to come from nowhere. There is no question that an unseen force is attempting to make contact with Alfred. Now all he has to do is determine who or what it is.
After he and his best friend, Khushahal, decide to investigate the weird comings-and-goings surrounding his old family home, they unwittingly confront hostile guards who seem to be protecting some sort of bizarre chemical experiment. But when he contacts his father to ask him what he knows, he is quickly pushed away without explanation. Now as a series of bizarre clues are slowly unveiled, Alfred embarks on a journey into the past where he learns the truth about his birth that will change everything, not just for him, but for the infinity world.
In this gripping fantasy story, a college student on a quest to learn the truth about himself and his family soon discovers that nothing is certain when it comes to the universe
The story is written around an imaginary world called Infinity. Alfred, a college boy, who is staying with his father, is our protagonist. His parents got separated and his paternal house is locked up. According to his father, Alfred's mother has put the stay on it. But Alfred found some suspicious activity going on in his paternal house. He along with his friend ventured into that house and found an interesting book. During the same time, he witnessed many strange events. Those events led him to a completely new world Infinity. But the moment he stepped into infinity world he became fugitive. And from that point onwards it became an express paced story. Pace became so fast that it didn't slow down until end.

I liked following things about book
  • A new kind of plot. World, race, imagination
  • The way various sci-fi and fantasy concepts mixed up to prepare infinity world. I think kids and YA audience will like it.
  • Cover art. I liked it
Things that I found less interesting or faulty
  • Title - Though reason was given it could be better
  • Multiple confusing twists and explanation. Which I didn't get it. I don't want to reveal which were those concepts
  • Too fast paced storyline. If you miss two lines things get changed drastically.
Overall a good read. I would recommend to kids for sure. Who knows they will love it like HPP. It is a complete set of entertainment which has magic, science, technologies, gadgets and mystery.
