Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club in exchange of an honest review. The views expressed herein are solely my own and there has been no monetary exchange involved.
The blurb of this book was what inspired me to pick it up for a review. It did imply a spiritual context to the story, but I am currently on a trying-books-out-of-my-comfort-zone spree, and hence I decided why not give this one a try too.
I’ve read Ruchira’s Choices and when I started reading this one, the similarities were apparent. Similarities not in the story, but in the author’s line of thought.
The storyline is a well-thought out one and you can make out that the author believes in her story. Her attempt to pass on that belief to her readers is a decent effort and has come out well. The story has a good flow to it, not having abrupt transitions and leap of faith situations.
I also liked the author’s use of a balanced vocabulary.
Her characters are sketched well, although I thought Ira was far too rude and complicated to be believable. The characters are shown to fly into India from, all over the world, for a tour around Agra. The tour is to be conducted by a tour guide called Raj, who is famous for healing people’s troubled souls. The journey has been explained well.
However, I thought it could have been done better. It could’ve been done more through a story than through a narrative. In most places, the reader is told what to think of a situation more than being directed towards a revelation.
To summarize, while the book is a decent portrayal of the author’s beliefs and is certainly a one-time read.
I give this book a 3/5.
