Book Review on Sadhna Shanker’s Ascendance
Set far away from the present day conundrum -stricken life on earth, “Ascendance” by Sadhna Shanker endeavours to explore the idea of new social constructs and tries to imagine life in remote future. The author catagorises the book as a literary science fiction which is a little dystopian in temperament. Unlike conventional science books, “Ascendance” does not portray the conflict of human beings with aliens and machines. The book skilfully depicts the eventual change brought in by science in the lives of men and women with a tinge of philosophy. It lays more emphasis on the philosophical assessment rather than the enthralling occurrences. The whodunit factor of the book entices a mystery loving brain and calls for more attention towards its subject, where you are tempted to compare the world delineated in the novel to our Earth.
