INSIDE MY HEAD
“God created man in his own image;
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.”
Let me start with the things that I like about this book.
“The night fell down. The flames grew up… Every now and then a young flame would erupt from the midst of the bonfire and score a new height in its own realm. And higher and higher the flame grew, without any fear or regret. The fear established herself against the darkness and waged a war against the night. A war whose outcome was pre-decided against her. But still she fought. For she was so young and so aggressive.
But so was the night.”
This novel is the story of three men, whose destinies seem to be entwined with each other more than they realize. The story runs smoothly, starting off with Phil, a college student, escaping from police, who has been falsely accused of being a terrorist. And then moves on to the story of Siv, a scientist in the woods, trying to make the most important discovery so far. And then finally to Arty, the character I loved the most, the mysterious one, the artist. The best thing about the book is the characters; they are believable, and the dialogues were quite nice and realistic too.
The beginning of the story was good, and thrilling. And the story was carried on well. Maybe it was because of the rising anticipation that the ending seemed so stale to me. Also, the effect that the authors seemed trying to induce at the end introducing Arty’s story didn’t happen. The details seemed forced, and unnecessary. Perhaps, dropping the bomb at the end wasn’t so wise, without giving a hint along the whole story.And the book needed another round of detailed editing.
