During our more ‘Philosophical’ moments…we have all wondered about ‘Time’…its true nature…and its impact on us! But what if?…’Time’…had similar concerns…about us? For the people of Aruhu, a tiny Himalayan village, deep in India’s ancient past, what begins as a visitation by a mysterious entity, quickly morphs into an inescapable trap…one that has left its imprint on all of human history…and the future! This is a trap that has seduced hundreds through its lure of absolute power, including the Nazis…who mount an epic expedition to unearth the source of God’s power on Earth…only to discover that the cost of absolute power…is also absolute! This is the story ‘Time’ wants to tell us…this is the story of Chronux!
The book starts in 3067 B.C in the Himalayan foothills. We get to know about a small village called Aruhu between the mountains. The villagers find an injured man out in the forest who seems to be a bit different than them. He is very knowledgeable and the villagers start to look up to him and worship him. Eventually, the man leaves the village and years after that, strange things start to happen in the village.
The book felt like it was being narrated by an old entity. In this case, it was “time” The writing was fluid and relatively good but it had some faults. There were too many exclamation marks and there were some words in between lines written in block letters that i found very disrupting.
There is no one plot-line in the book. It is centered around some fictional and some historical events. It goes back and forth between different eras and gives a detailed account of the incidents. There are elements of science-fiction and philosophy as well. The book is clearly extremely well-researched and I highly admire that. However, there was not enough of a story to keep me interested. There were long theories and accounts that got a bit tiresome to read.
I feel this book is not for everyone and would appeal to particular types of readers. If you’re into history and philosophy and don’t mind reading long books, I definitely recommend this.

To be honest, the first part of the synopsis makes the book look super cool. After that.. not so much. (I have no idea where the nazis came in from)
I don’t know either. I was fascinated by the synopsis too but it turned out to be disappointing.
