About the book : The book’s blurb itself creates a compelling charm to find out the story inside. An amalgamation of scientific logic, astrology and spiritual science, Dancing Stars is a story full of thrill and adventure for ones conscience. The story revolves around the healing effect of various gemstones while enhancing & harnessing their power to heal one’s fate. Supported by logic and science, the author has made a great effort by combining the threads of astrology, science and spirituality. The equilibrium of Energy in the universe is at stake because of the “Neo” and universe has made all its plan ready to be executed by Mahant, Vedika, Ameta, Suryansh and Guruji.
About Writing: The author has made commendable efforts in keeping the “What’s next?” alive in all the chapters. A segmented approach has been followed by the author which does not deviate the story much and keeps everything in flow. Though at few places the character positioning seems odd but overall story nullifies it all. It is “One of a kind story” which is well crafted and thought. The word usage is decent (People may have to look out for a dictionary at few places) and the flow of the story is good which makes it easily understandable.
Few things I particularly liked are :
- There are spiritual lessons mixed with the text in Sanskrit language along with their meaning which enhances the reading experience while imparting spiritual knowledge.
- Bhagwad Gita has been well quoted at many places while justifying it with modern science.
- Though the concept of Karma has not been explicitly mentioned in the story but I feel the overall essence of the story speaks volumes about it.
- It is spiritual knowledge bundled with logical explanations for modern readers.
- There are many plots where characters who have never met before in the story have been portrayed as they know each other before hand.
- The character of “Yogi” has not been properly introduced in the story creating understanding issues.
- There are editing errors in the language and sentence formation.
- Though it happened just once but the story telling went from third person to first person.
- As the story is more than the differences between the brother (Mahant) & Sister (Vedika), the astrological images could have been part of the book cover.
Despite all critical views, the words and story seem to come out from depth of Author’s heart and his effort is appreciable. I once again congratulate her and wish her luck for her future endeavors.
