Book review 386 : Quaker by Rohan Singhvi


I like those works which take me back to my prime days. This book reminded me on my childhood when I used to take interest in dramas, scripts, plays, etc. I read them with utmost joy. It has been written & crafted in such a way that it presents the readers with a power-packed entertainment. One can infer this trend just by looking at the table of contents right from the beginning of the novel. There’re 10 characters in total comprising of the Quaker Family tree. Each with their own life convictions, mottos, agendas, goals & dreams. They come together to achieve a common goal: ‘Vengeance.’
Everything in this story is fiction, but the way it has been crafted – it feels like I’m watching a western Web series.

The story is set around a fictional southern European country, known as Warem, consisting of 5 major cities: Armac, Coruscant, Marluth, Ofram & Azweg. Each & every component has been expressed well. Even minor aspects like styles, fonts & writing conventions has been highlighted in a very crucial manner as to ensure that the readers get to understand every single thing without missing out any relevant facts. It has all been done keeping the readers in mind which is what really impressed me. The transitioning of scripts along with partition of different scenes has been segregated carefully. Just to make sure everything goes smoothly, the author has even produced an example just before the beginning of the story so as to ascertain the execution level of the writing style.

I won’t be delving into the story nor will I discuss it. I’ll just be highlighting the prominent things that could’ve made the novel more promising.
Writing style is good accompanied by a nice narration which further gets amplified with a good command over vocabulary. The effervescence lies in the characterisation of the novel. Pace is okay. Theme selected is good. There’re many human vices & mortal deadly sins which has been borrowed with a knack consisting of an elemental fabric component acting as a salubrious remedial cure to mankind. The readers will have to peal all the layers of the book to grasp them effectively. And that’s how the subtitle of the book ‘It all comes back in the End’ gets justified accordingly.
The only drawbacks being, it lacks the impact which may leave readers wanting for more. Furthermore, I felt it ended abruptly without drawing any good conclusion considering the fact it’s a small novel lacking descriptive approach. Thus, making the story quite predictable & presumptuous. Overall, a good one-time read!
