My Review - 

After Annihilation by Gauri Mittal is based on the year 2037 where nuclear war starts. The cover page and title look good. It creates curiosity about the story. 

The main lead of the story is Madhavi living in a country named Iddis. She lost her kith and kin in a nuclear attack. The story revolves around Madhavi's life and her love interest, Aarav. The government secretly builds a city named Shunya for war survivors. Everybody tries to find the meaning of their lives after losing everything. 

The story further deals with Madhavi and Aarav's unspoken feelings, their wrestle, and the re-establishment of democracy. I like the characters of Pranav and Vishwaroopum. Both of them have their own agendas. The emotion of loss, hate, love, and fear is described well by the author. But there's a lack of suspense. I connect with Madhavi's character, and the future scenario of the Earth is incredible. 

The story is simple, mainly focused on a political aspect. The characters grow with time. The narration is flawless. I feel good to read something like this for a change. The characters are placed perfectly by Gauri Mittal. The story has a single POV, and the language is lucid without any grammatical errors. 

I wanted to read more about the survival stage instead of politics and elections. The Earth is destroyed, the people go crazy, and the main focus was on power struggle and diplomacy disappoints me. But overall, this book deserves the reader's attention. I enjoy reading this short and enthralling book. I would recommend this to newbies and sci-fi lovers
