Tim and Tatum, by M. N. Morumbasi, is a non-fiction fantasy book that follows the story of a young man in his adventures through different forms and dimensions.
Tim is feeling very lucky after his final midterm result is published, and he intends to play a lottery. On his way, he gets into an accident. He is unhurt and somehow finds himself in a bonfire party at his classmate’s family house. After taking some tea, he now finds himself on a journey through the universe and beyond. He tours through different dimensions with Tatum as his guide. But where has Tatum really taken Tim? What does Tatum really want with Tim? Will Tim ever return?
The influence this book has had on me has been overwhelming, as I have been thinking about numerous possibilities as it relates to the universe since I finished this book. The author captured my attention completely as he told the story from Tim's eyes. I like that the author narrated the events in a very detailed way, so I always had a clear understanding of the picture the author tried to paint at every point throughout the book. I also liked how the author structured the plot. He doesn’t let the cat out of the bag too early, as chapter one was such that it looked like a decoy to the main story. After reading that chapter, one could be forgiven to think that this was going to be a possible love story between Tim and Andy.
I enjoyed reading this book for different reasons. This book not only seeks to educate the reader on the series of activities that go on in the body but also on what makes up the universe and multiverse. I also liked that each chapter was coherent to the next, and I found no unnecessary distractions in form grammatical errors. However, I do note that I found two typographical errors in this book. Conservative readers may find the earlier parts of this book offensive, as they contain some profane words.
I was a bit disappointed with the way Andy's character was tossed aside for almost the entire story given how much time was invested in developing her character. I felt that she should have had more influence on how everything played out. Other than this, there was nothing to dislike about this book.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. Despite the typographical errors and my concerns about Andy's character, I have not removed any star because I feel that the content of this book, as well as how brilliantly executed it was, overshadows the few concerns I have. I recommend this book for people interested in science, non- fiction stories.
