Disorientation is the first novel in The Seer's Return series by V. J. Singam. The author takes the reader back in time to where destiny awaits the protagonist. Dr. Visvanathan is a very successful psychiatrist who is respected by his peers for his gentle and calm nature. He was satisfied with his life, but that all changed when a new patient approached him. The child, Kumaran, is seven years old and only speaks in Sanskrit. But that is the least of Visva’s worries. The moment the child becomes his patient, he starts having dreams of a life that he might have had in ancient Harappa. He doesn’t believe in fairy tales or things that cannot be described by science, but the vivid dreams are a little hard to ignore. Was there a past life? Why is he dreaming about an ancient civilization? And why now?
Disorientation was an intense story. V. J. Singam weaved detailed images, making sure the reader was immersed in the story and hooked to it from the very beginning. I enjoyed how the story flowed seamlessly at a fast pace that had my heart racing. Visva is a complete protagonist; he is cynical enough not to believe anything immediately yet he is open-minded enough to be curious. The author blended the timelines well, adding enough information about ancient medicine and way of life. The author shared some fascinating details about the Indus Valley civilization. This made me look forward to what will happen next. It gave me a sense of urgency and had me biting my nails. Disorientation is an interesting story, one that needs your undivided attention.
