New Delhi:

How real is The Soul of Anna Klane? It’s pretty old and the pages of the book have turned yellow and brown, but The Soul of Anna Klane, a science fiction running into barely 240 pages, hasn't lost its sheen. It still earns rave reviews and is highly recommended by readers.

Small as young Anna KLane, the book written by Terrel Meidener is as compelling and fascinating as her story. 

“Undoubtedly one of the best books I have ever read… Thoroughly thought-provoking, I sat with my mouth open in awe most of my way through this book,” a reader wrote in Goodreads.

A neatly crafted marvel of a different kind, the book is about a miraculous million-dollar story of a sweet soul, Anna Klane, who is dying of brain tumour. Born to a rich genius, while the medical world gives up on her, she undergoes a critical and miraculous process of healing in the hands of her father.

Creating a genius character Anatol Klane, the father of the child, Terrel proves himself a genius with this compelling and touching story of a father and his only child.

While the book was written years ago in 1977, when advancement in technology was, perhaps, at a nascent stage, the author opens up a world of the brain, mind and soul and keeps the reader wondering about incredible possibilities—a higher level of healing. Driving a nail deep between the sceptic and the believer, the book poses several questions about the soul in the face of death.

Published by Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, the book no doubt is one of the finest science fictions written that is all together thought provoking, soul stirring and touching.

With surprising plot in every turn of the page and chapter, The Soul of Anna Klane is one of those compelling books which is hard to put down till one finish reading it.
