Review:

“Jim Morgan and the Seven sins” has a very different story line. Its dark, mysterious and very well thought of. I was very keen to read this particular book because the plot is very fresh.
When I dived in the book I was wondering how the story would move, luckily the action starts in the first few pages itself and the great images of mystery and drama emerges. It was nice to read something like that. I love stories which have a higher power that guides you or rules the scenario. Everything just glorifies by that factor.

I didn’t like the main character very much because he was just not doing justice to his persona. He was more into boasting about himself rather than focusing on the happenings. Also I think that the story is a little dizzy somewhere in the middle. I can accept that behavior in the starting of the book because at that time there is a lot to explain and connect with but that is unacceptable in the middle because it is the high point.

The book follows the trend of the beginning and it is extremely slow and not to the point. The main idea, i.e., the sins are not presented in a lavish manner. It was like one sin is mentioned in a highly impressive manner and the other is not even showcased in a confined and neat way.

What is great in the book are the side characters, some of them were amazing and it was nice to see them in action. The problem was that only Jim seemed to be the main character and nobody else was there for an ample amount of time. So it was hard to connect with them majorly and as so many characters were coming from time to time it was not easy to think about Jim and his mindset.

But I loved the scenario. I loved the time travel so much that I waited for it so badly. And because of that particular reason I was not able to put the book down. There were very strong connections, very well executed turns and a very sharp reflexes.

The main problem in the book arrives is the narration and so many characters that comes in play from the very start. It became a little confusing and out of the box thing. Maybe it was because of a glitch in narration or execution of the tale.

But if I neglect that then there was no issue at any place and my reading experience of the book was amazing. The book is not small still I managed to read it quickly because the interest quotient was so high, I was so desperate to know the mystery that sometimes I used to jump ahead a bit to get to know what’s next.

It was a balanced novel for me which entertained me at right places in right amounts. So, it was a good pick.


Eye-Catchers:

  • “I was too good with words; he was too good with response.”


Recommendation:

I can easily recommend this book to people who read Indian authors and are bored from romance and stupid thrillers. Jim Morgan has something different.
