While the plot plays its course, the much-awaited suspense is on its way. In all, the book succeeds to keep readers on the edge of their seats. 


My Review

Right from the Chapter 0, the writing is intriguing. Some readers may consider it boring reading about the conversation between two strangers, right at the start of the book whereas I find the conversation sweet and refreshing. For example, consider one of the narrative lines from the scene-

“How often do you encounter a figure of extreme beauty in front of you and refrain from lying?”

 Though, I still believe that the beginning must be bang-on!

The story plot is well crafted and this makes the book captivating. Characters are impressively portrayed, especially talking about the guy Avinash. The author has done an appreciable work on building the story. Overall, it represents a beautiful art.


The writing work is an amalgam of suspense, mystery and emotions. Apart from this cocktail, story doesn’t fail to deliver a satisfactory ending. The climax scene is awesome. But… strictly, no spoilers here.


The readers may also find astonishing, the amount of research the author put into work. Rhonda Byrne’s ‘Secret’ was connected beautifully inside the story and the unique manipulation done was commendable. At these points, you can judge a writer’s creativity. Well, Nitesh just nailed the part.


I, personally, liked the memory transport concept. It’s amazing. It’s fun. It’s magical. 


Book cover and title

 
The book title was okay but the book cover could have been better. A miniature margin of scope was left here, in this department. 

All in all, the book is, undoubtedly, engaging and entertaining. 


Kudos to Nitesh Jain for writing this awesome book!
