Book Review: A Vikram-Aditya Story: Ladakh Adventure by Deepak Dalal
Deepak Dalal conjures up an alluring world where adventure meets thrill and this gives rise to a series of events that will surely make the readers do a double-take. As a part of the Vikram-Aditya Series, the Ladakh Adventures transports the readers to the extreme north of India where the treeline recedes and the brown giants are in complete control.
Amidst a visually delicious setting, Vikram and Aditya, the two protagonists, embark on an adventure to trace the culprits behind the kidnapping of their helper, Tsering. Vikram and Aditya are school-going boys who are poles apart. With a tinge of ‘Hardy Boys’ and Enid Blyton’s action-packed adventures, the author presents this wonderful book to the young readers between the age of 12-16. The idea behind this book is to encourage the children to explore beyond the boundaries of the cities. The author deftly brings out the beauty of the brown landscapes and the pristine lakes through his words. Nowhere does the narrative become verbose or superfluous. The book is packed with action and the decision-making skills of the young boys is something to look out for.
Overall, Ladakh Adventure is quite interesting to read. Go for this series!
Best wishes to the author!
