The Calcutta Chromosome by Amitav Ghosh

The Calcutta Chromosome - Amitav Ghosh

Read by Tiffany:  You were right Vincenza, this is BAD sci-fi! Plot reliance on a mysterious illuminati-style group pushing information onto people who then happen to find each other by coincidence, as well as unbelievably powerful computer technology that can apparently reconstruct a file deleted years in the past, leads to a disappointing disconnection for me from the tale. I did feel that perhaps I was missing something in the Indian mythology, and sure enough in a review on Good Reads I found pertinent references, so probably there is more to the background than I understood.
