"Ruminate the journey of life"

'3 out of 5 stars'

Book blurb

The novel is a first person narrative of an entrepreneur who struggles to make sense of his life. He reconstructs his memory while recuperating from a nervous breakdown. The distortion in his narrative is not only the manifestation of psychopathology of his mind but also an exploration of human values. The novel demonstrates how optimism incorporates meaningful semantics even in the face of psychopathology. The dualism of hope and pathos creates a touch of absurd, almost reminiscent of Kafka and Camus.

Review of the book

Let's start from the cover page, the cover page is fascinating and attractive. The title and cover page creates curiosity in reader; and definitely pass the stage one and prompts the reader to take the book in hand.
The second thing reader will check out the back cover or blurb of the book; that does not appeals me. and the reader may also feel same; The book will be placed back. The author would have done better effort in writing the blurb of the book.
The protagonist looks back in his life to search the meaning of life. He ruminates childhood, love of parents and his entire journey till the date. Various aspects of life he has described in a philosophical way, few are good few are bad .
Written as first person story has many incidences and many dimensions. The book does not success to maintain interest in the book, every possibility is there the reader will drop out the book without accomplishment.
The Psycho pathological condition of the protagonist is a character in the story; similarly the author successfully created strong characters. The climax of the story interesting, i will not like to reveal here. 
Writing style is an average, easy to understand; slow paced. 

The biggest disadvantage is the price of the book..(The book is quite higher, optimum price of the book should be below 200)

Who should read the book?
I fear there are very few readers who will like to read this such type of book; but who loves relationship, social and philosophical book can go for this book.
Who should not read the book?
Thriller, action, romance lover stay away

My opinion:
This book is quite costly so Check out the sample of this book then buy it....
