About the Book:

To start with, I am in love with the author. They say, “First impression is the last impression,” and I believed it in this book. What a start! The acknowledgement will touch many people’s heart. Every author say, that the book they write is like their baby but J Alchem explains us how the baby is brought into this world. A superb start with the acknowledgement and a Preface giving introduction about human beings. The book is different. The plot is unique and so is the writing style.

Tell me one thing, what would you do if one day you get a call from a stranger and he asks you to meet him? You would be scared, nervous, call police, inform your friends, or ignore it! But Niorgast Stinvis, Doilin Flenk and Bakintin Lenit take up the risk and goes to meet the stranger Albormi and the mission to make the world a single country starts. Taking steps from state to national and the international level, they excel in their mission. I am not going to talk about the story, because you have to read this amazing book.

Things that I loved in this book is:

Acknowledgement- The best start to the book.

Niorgast’s mother who being an illiterate was an ocean of wisdom.

Albormi, a traitor but a wise man and his vision to make the country one world.

Unique plot.

The concept of blessing coffee; Helping a woman and a small kid.

The writing style, the way he has described every small things that happens in our day to day life. Talking about the freedom while we are in bed, our love with a teacher when we are in college, friendship, a mother and a child relationships, problems in life and so on. He has described it so well, you actually smile or bit your tongue because you have gone through it. The description about the act the protagonist does in his college, The way he see things like no one does has touch my heart.

The quotes and the protagonist motivational speech is also an inspiration to dream and make it come true.

The way, Nio proposes Sidzy is also funny yet lovely.

This book also strengthens your faith in God.

Many congratulations to author for his mind-blowing work as a solo author. He is blessed with beautiful and pure thoughts. Hope to see him writing more and more. Wish to meet him once and get an autograph from him. Cheers!

Below are the few quotes that I loved the most.

“Pretending gives you nothing but living always provides you with something.”

“If destination is beautiful, the path will become easy to go even when it is not.”

“Stand up, go ahead and never turn back. Those who do not tighten their shoe laces always wear slippers!”

“Life is all about falling on the concrete floor, getting hurt but still standing up with a bright smile on your face like nothing has happened to you.”

“Strange things are extremely nice because if the things are strange, then we feel an immense pleasure in thinking about them, talking about them and ding them.”

 Rating for the Book: 5/5
