STORY-LINE/ PLOT: Intriguing. A suspense with a lot of twists and turns and a lot of surprise elements ‘Jim Morgan and the Seven Sins’ is the story of Jim Morgan’s quest to unravel the sins committed by him in his previous birth with an aim to atone for them.
Time is short and the task at hand is not an easy one. Racing against time, Jim embarks on what is known as time travel moving through portals that open up via his books.
Packed with action, drama and suspense the book takes us on an introductory journey of sorts, of the world of astrology and is in fact an insight into the seven common sins committed by man. To know the connection between the sins, human behaviour and astrology you will have to go through the book.
In short ‘Jim Morgan and the Seven Sins’ is a thriller that leaves you guessing only to make you realize that all your guesses are mere guesses. The truth is something else. The climax I must admit is the ‘icing in the cake.’ It is fresh and will catch you unawares.
CHARACTERIZATION: The characters of the protagonist Jim and the main players are well- developed with all their imperfections. But yes, I’d have loved to get to know Kathyrn better.
LANGUAGE: Simple, crisp and lucid.
PACE: The initial chapters tend to be slow and bumpy making you want to put down the book often. But once it picks up you can’t help but get hooked to it. It is smooth sailing thereafter. The reason for the slow pace in the initial chapters I believe is because it is a bit confusing. One takes time to come to grips with the story.
A gripping action packed thriller this one scores a 4 on a scale of 5 from me.
