Book Review: Alvin and the Carbon Conundrum

book reviewAlvin and the Carbon Conundrum is a thriller where the protagonist, Alvin, is on a trail for the Royal Incan Diamond that has gone missing from under his care. While on a mission to get it back, Alvin unearths the secrets of its mystical past.

He and Jett risk their lives to discover the clues to solve the mystery as unexpected enemies emerge from the pages of history. From under the Thames River to the Zambezi and then onto Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu, follow Alvin and Jett as they try to stay one step ahead of their immortal enemies.

The plot of the novel is well-structured and Adit Ambani has a flair for descriptive writing. The narrative alternates from the point of view of Alvin and the point of view of other characters. The story moves from London to the rain forests of Africa and then on to the land of the Incas… the author has spent a good time on researching the various communities and landscapes he penned down in his story.

And being a narrative told from the point of many others, the plot becomes even more interesting. Given the fact that this is the first novel by Adit Ambani, the hard work clearly shows. Building on the tempo, as the narrative moves from the past to the present… the climax will surely take the readers by surprise.

Overall, a good book to accompany you on a long train journey, I go with 3 out of 5 stars for Adit Ambani’s Alvin and the Carbon Conundrum.
