Tanuja Ramachandran: Hunter-Seeker by Kumar Sivasubramanian is a crazy and at times, madcap, action adventure. It felt like “Machete” meets “Monkey” (TV series) then mixed with high octane Anime, and all wrapped up in a Bollywood action movie. Add in a quest for revenge, a fast pace, violence, an unorthodox covert operative/mercenary, roller derby, mutants, and narcolepsy- and it was one heck of a crazy ride.
I read this book a few days ago and I am still thinking about it- and wondering how I really feel about it. There were times I laughed out loud. Other times were intriguing and intense. There are a lot of characters, quirky and interesting (some with very hard to pronounce names), a fast pace, and a LOT going on- so there were a few confusing moments for me. And times where I was pulled out of the story while I figured out how to pronounce a name. This is just me though- and others probably won’t have these same issues. It didn’t detract too much from my enjoyment of the story though.
Thank you, Kumar Sivasubramanian!
