Book Review:

The Quest of the Sparrows’  an enlightening and captivating story that explores spirituality through the life of the sparrow.

The story has been portrayed from the perspective of 3 people: Nikhil, Sanjeev and Partibhan. This is a new style of writing and seemed quite interesting. The storyline and theme are very different from the usual run of the mill novels. Today, when everyone is chasing a materialistic life, the book dwells into Spirituality and its meaning in this fast paced world. Though the book comes under fiction category but it also explores the areas of self help.

The narration is free flowing and keeps the reader hooked till the end. The language is easy and simple which makes the reading experience effort free. The story is thought provoking and stresses to find the meaning of life and an everlasting joy.

Religion and spirituality are two different things and the book very well describes this.

The cover of the book is not very attractive though it justifies the story. The title is also a bit misguiding.

Overall I like reading the book a lot.  The story is definitely going to leave a mark on the mind of the readers and the way they perceive things in life. Highly recommended to those who like reading books with some substance.
