Jim Morgan and The Seven Sins by Bharat Madan talks about a different style of writing which is totally unique in this type of Literature. We can call it a sheer work of fiction blended with spiritualism, suspense, mystery, time travel.

The cover and the title are fantastic. Jim Morgan stands for the author in the book while the seven sins reminds us of those seven deadly sins taht we read in Dr. Faustus by Christopher Marlowe.

This book is a page turner and from the start it keeps you hooked till the end. I read this book as fast as I could and finished it in one and half hour. The way the author takes us back to the time or say the time travel concept makes it intriguing. Further, the blurb where Jim Morgan is told about the seven deadly sins he had comitted and the clues are hidden in his previous novels, makes this book great strength. I believe if the blurb is crisp, the story turns out to be outstanding.

The story is fast paced which sometimes turns out to be a haush paush. The plot structure is great. The author doesn’t give us much time to imagine as everything goes so fast. The concept and the characters turns out to be a hit whereas the writing style is simple and also requires improvement. If you are looking for unique plotlines and loads of suspense and drama, then surely grab this book.

Book Review of The Quest of the Sparrows

The Quest of the Sparrows by Kartik Sharma and Ravi( Nirmal Sharma) is a religious and a spiritual fiction which enlightens our minds. For a change it is not a love story and this genre actually got my attention as I have rarely read this type. I am glad that I picked up this book.

The cover of the book is simple and elegant. It somewhere serves the motive of the authors and their message. The sparrows serve as a symbolic figure.

The title is relevant and has some sort of symbolism in it. Sparrows play as a catalyst in it.

A seemingly ordinary young man forced to become a guru takes a leap of faith and sets off with his followers on a taxing journey that changes their mindsets and lives forever. Inspired by the carefree life of a sparrow, reluctant guru Partibhan takes off on a 600 kilometre expedition on foot to test his theory of practical spirituality. He believes that human beings can become powerful creators, but the desire to secure the future makes them mere survivors. However, survival isn’t the only goal of life. A much bigger role, a higher calling awaits us. Will Guru Partibhan and his disciples complete the journey? Will they discover their true potential and find everlasting joy? Looks at the importance of spirituality in today’s fast paced world. A must read for all those feeling burnt out and wondering about the ‘higher purpose’ of their lives. The story of a young man who finds his calling in life, written in a relatable manner.

The story is beautifully woven. The authors have kept in mind the thought process and at times we feel they are playing with ur minds. The use of multiple point of views makes it interesting. Every story has some significance and they can be used as separate stories as well. Basically is focus on a man and even Guru Partibhan who through his ways gives us a purpose of living. The delineation is apt. The characters are fantastic and easy to understand though the authors tried to make it complicated.

Coming to writing style, this is just so perfect. The multiple point of views, stream of consciousness thoughts makes it perfect.Some of the liners deserve to be preserved as quotes. The authors have done full justice to the book and kuddos for bringing up such a different concept.

Book Review of In God’s Wishlist by Pradipta Panda

In God’s Wishlist by Pradipta Panda is one of the unique books that I have come across. The concept of God as a character in the story is one the amazing segements I came across. The book gives us a new vibe about life and imagination. There are many people who will like this book and many will feel it senseless. If you are a romantic person then do read it and if you are a pragmatic person then don’t pick up as it will disappoint you. Lets the analysis in depth :

in-gods-wishlist (1)

Cover- The cover of the book is captivating and it feels us with eagerness to read about the contents. The color scheme is spectacular.

Title- The title in itself is a challenging thing. Nobody can dream of such a title except Pradipta and thats exceptional on her part.

Genre- This book comes under various genres like spiritual, motivational, religious, political, fantasy and many more.

Blurb- “In Gods Wishlist’ is a fantasy that speaks of a whole new world order, where there will be no fear of death. Love and beauty will rule the world and spirits will interact and fall in love with human beings and propagate love. This love will transcend everything and be the panacea to all problems. God has a vision and a mission.
He invites humankind to join active politics as it controls their life. He performs experiments to induct his theory. In one of his experiments, he studied beauty with the mind, and released all the spirits to the world, except for twenty-one top leaders of the world, whose beautiful minds were not mapped and programmed. God’s theory is that the two main things that rule the earth are the ruler and beauty that remains true for all ages. Youth have different aspirations, towards their fantasy, the opponent, and society. To inculcate this God inducted a new theory of love, the love between the spirit and a human being. The love between the spirit and a human being will be the panacea of all and this love will transcend human behaviour. Read to find out how and what is in God’s Wishlist…”

Plot- The plot is intriguing and well crafted. This is a story about God’s experiment with human and angels. It has all the elements starting from spiritualism, fantasy, religion, romance, illicit relationship and many more.

Why I loved this book?

I won’t be talking about the characterisation or the style. I feel the readers need to know what is so special about it. I am person who love fantasy stories and this story is full of imagination. Nobody can even imagine God as a character in the novel. The life after death scene and even the angel being a human’s lover. These are totally fictional. A fiction lover like me would surely love this unique idea of connecting God with humans. The way the incidents are shown gives us a description that the author knows how to connect things with the story.

Why Pragmatic People won’t like it?

No doubt the concept is unique but they will not be able to connect as a pragmatic person believes what is truth and the fantasy might not interest him. He might feel that the author has not done a proper research or might feel totally clueless.Pragmatism search for logics whereas Romanticism search for emotions, feelings and gestures.

Diction- The style of the book was good and the way descriptions were given, it was enthralling. I really loved the simplistic yet fanatastic style of the author. Overall, this book can come under liberal thinking.

Book Review of Occult Lines Behind LIfe

Occult Lines behind Life is a fantastic book written by M.P. Pandit. This book is a guide book and has so much to enlighten. It belongs to a spiritual category and the way M.P. Pandit explains by stating anecdotes from life is impeccable. I accidently came across this copy in my college library. It was in philosophy section and instantly picked it up and now I can say that it was the best pick up. I recently recommended this book to my classmates and teachers. I hope they like it too.

Cover- The cover of the book is simple and doesn’t appeal much yet the reader is interested in reading it as it has some kind of pull in it.

Title- The title of the book surely is intriguing and the reader is interested to know about the reasons of the things behind life.

Blurb- Many things in life are inexplicable as long as one fails to see behind the surface. This world is a Cosmos, with Order and Laws maintaining that Order. Physical science is acquainted with only the external processes. There is a larger, deeper science of the Occult which gives the key to the understanding of life’s mysteries.

My observation- Since we know this book is a non- fiction hence the author has narrated the basic facts and his ecperiences. Many anecdotes are used in it. He has clearly explained the reasons behined various things like, Why things go wrong when we tell everything to someone?; Why bad things happen to good people?; What is the impact of Yoga?

The use of various concepts like Astrology, Yoga, Enlightenment, Change of Seasons. I especially loved the way he used simple and lucid language to explain the basic facts about life. Somewhere or the other many quests of our life are sorted. If you read this book, you will surely feel lighter and enlightened.

Availability of the book – Unfortunately, this book is not available in India now. It was my luck that I got to read this book. Still I am attaching the International Links as some of the Foreign friends can grab the copies.
