A quest to identify seven deadly sins

A deadly race against time to seek atonement


On the outskirts of New York City, Jim Morgan, an international bestselling author learns through God that he had committed seven sins in his previous life. Clues lie in the six novels he has written, that would lead him to the mystery. But the novels won’t reveal everything to him. With seven days on hand, he must walk in the direction that faith leads him in, to reach the lost chamber of Seven Planets. Unless Morgan understands the secret behind his past life and the sins he committed, his chance to live will be lost forever.

Review:
First glance at cover and my thought was it looks very interesting... and the topic of seven sins lured me... the said sins are: 
  1. Lust
  2. Gluttony
  3. Greed
  4. Sloth
  5. Wrath
  6. Envy
  7. Pride
and unfortunately, Jim Morgan, the protagonist has committed all in his past life... now if it is his past lives we are talking about then how does he know about them in present life? Well surprise! surprise! he is a lucky fellow as God himself visits him and talks to him. They say If you talk to God, you are praying; If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia; but in this case he is as sane as any normal human...
God gives him seven days where he has to find about his past sins else his time is up. It makes you wonder how is that possible? And then comes time travel...

Author, Bharat Madan, has a vivid imagination which makes this book an interesting read. And time travels makes it even more exciting.

Talking about story, it is simple at first but then expands into multiple small stories - looks like a writing trend these days... Anyhow, the stories are linked beautifully (in terms of overall story line) and they are rather fast paced which keeps you on your toes.

The character of Jim Morgan is well portrayed and rest all are just sidekicks and they are explained as needed.

Another factor that I liked about the book is its climax. It comes at a fine pace... 

Also, there are no mistakes in the book which also made it even smoother read. 


What I didn't like about the book is that it is confusing at times. Especially when time travel takes place. Makes you reread a couple of pages. Which is kind of annoying, given it is a loooong book. Some aspects could have been explained better.


My rating to the book is 4/5. (It is a pretty good read)
