Blurb 

Agogos follows the story of Carl, a man who is similar to many of 

the modern men of this century. Through him, the reader is able to 

see how a simple man is forced to question beyond right vs wrong,

 faith vs freedom, security vs adventure. The reader is made to 

follow an unstructured structured story through Carl s stream of 

consciousness. The booked is marred in depth of many a quaint 

optimism.


Highlights

Agogo is an unconventional story of Carl, whose mind travels through several realms of craziness. The book is a novella divided into 10 chapters.The main character are Carl, M, old man, and a frog. Carl is accused of committing a crime, which M did. Who is M? That’s a suspense. Every chapter is structured in a unique manner with a prose in the beginning and poetry in between. Author explains the psychological and philosophical journey of Carl. The book cover is designed by author himself. He did the art work in the 8th chapter as well, which came out in sync with the story. The book is a sincere effort to introduce a new form you literature to the readers.

Drawbacks

Author tried really hard to bring out a philosophical journey but at certain areas, he failed to portray the same convincingly. There were a few grammatical errors.


One Liner

For those who like to read something different from the usual literary propaganda, this is a good choice.
