The dateline was 2044 and Amanda Thompson has had both the good, bad and ugly experiences as a professional reporter. However, when the United States President, Ms. Sharmin Smith was addressing a crowd of enthralled people in front of the White House and was struck by lightning that came from no identifiable source, it was an unprecedented horrific scene. As if the incident wasn’t bad enough already, her body couldn’t be traced afterwards.
To Amanda, this was a disaster like no other, Ms. Sharmin Smith was not just the President of the most powerful country in the world, she was equally the grandmother of her husband. It became necessary for her to dig into the archives and release a documented interview she had with the late president while hoping it would help set the records straight.
Characters in the book include Jayson, Elsa, Dean, Olivia and Kristina among others.
Taming the Tida is no doubt a thrilling fictional book, yet it feels more or less like a time travel into the future. It is a thought provoking book that can push the imaginations of the reader, especially in areas such as politics, history, religion and family life.
