Deepak is mesmerising and the journey of the book has so many insights on spirituality, drawn from the works of ancient seers to modern scientists and philosophers and of the life and work of Chopra himself. So much packed in to be read and considered again and again. The ending was blissful. Thank you Deepak.

A wonderful story as intricate as a spiders web. Believable characters and in-depth consideration of a range of perspectives. Families often seem strange and their truth stranger than fiction. This family is well worth the read.

This was such a rich tapestry of a book. So many characters, each drawn beautifully, and a story line that is so important for our times. The reader gets to consider the issues from personal perspectives, not just as an outsider through tainted news. A great author.

Not another one!

I really am over the trend of books written in this way; from a woman’s perspective and supposedly “psychological”. There’s too many GoneGirl and Girl on the Train. The story never got down to a deep level with any of the issues, storylines or characters.

I’m drawn to the topic around which this book is written. However, it didn’t really lift off into good fiction when based so much on an already established set of circumstances. It was more like following a recipe in a cookbook. Also, there were far too many characters written in the first person. Tiresome for any reader.

Hmm

I really enjoyed Room but this book didn’t reach those dizzy heights. It was rather predictable, stuffed full of annoying detail and too sentimental.

He’s done it again!

Paulo Coelho has written another great book exploring humanity and spirituality. Don’t let the title and the top layer of the story fool you. It just makes the real themes perhaps more accessible than some of his other works. This is another beauty about life; its struggles and rewards. Most importantly, it reveals the nature and value of true love.

Great again!

Zusak comes through with another beauty. It’s like one long, glorious poem and it all comes together seemlessly,; with wit, dead set Aussie ways, and such tenderness.

A masterpiece

What a joy to read such a beautifully sculpted story based on a wonderful idea and including such accurate understanding of the characters involved. Humour, intrigue and passion, all in one, and a fabulous way with words.

A great exploration of spirituality and humanity. A valuable framework to apply all your spiritual quests so far and all those to come in the future.
