book review: The Newtonian Prophecy

Author: Aditya Ram

Simply put its a brilliantly researched theological masterpiece… our own Dan Brown. By this I just want to compliment Aditya for the well written book matching up to Brown’s caliber as far as the mystically weaved metaphysical elements are concerned.

Scholarly Mathematician John Raymond from the Newtonian Research Academy (NRA) is called upon to help deduce the symbols left behind in the wake of a murdered terrorist and the occultly planned murders of Nobel laureates. However the symbolic crypts are just the tip of the iceberg and John finds himself sinking in quick sands of time even as he tries to decipher the inherent meaning of the clues spread in an alchemist chasm.

There are a few chapters dedicated to Sir Issac Newton traversing back to the 17th century which delves into a deeply buried secret threatening the existence of modern civilization and Newton himself. Newton was not just the discoverer of calculus in the later 17th century, but he went to extreme ends to protect his secret invention from falling into wrong hands. The answers to the same were put forth in form of a complex mathematical problem the solutions to which remained an enigma of the biggest order even to the NRA in the present century.

A sect from an ancient community, thought to be buried centuries ago, which went against the beliefs of the Church has now reared its ugly head again. The self proclaimed grand master of the same community masterminds a major coup with the sole intent of gaining the supreme power. Ultimately the plot unfolds revealing the chimera of deception and malicious collusion threatening the existence of God…

The novel is very well researched in all spheres be it calculus, physics, mechanics and theology. There is a contrary viewpoint to the interpretation of the existence of the holy Grail and the sects who wanted to protect the same. However the fictional elements add to the author’s quixotic vision and thus churns out the masterpiece. A must read for the lovers of physics and math and for those like me not into it, well… i for once now know Newton is more than just someone who discovered gravity.

Available in both paperback and kindle formats.
