Book Review:

As you will open a book, you will be treated with a beautiful journey of a baby bringing into the life and that baby is this book, 'A Road Not Traveled' by the Author J. Alchem. And this tale will definitely provoke you to read further what author has in store for the readers. Undoubtedly, with the most refreshing writing style, unique plotting and magical web of words, this book will travel deep within your nerves. The best contemporary story to be read by one and all if you aspire to see the entire world in a single country. When there will be no war, only love.

The lines which I loved the most from the books are many, a few amongst those are as follows:

'Imagine if there is no boundaries between any country like you and me.' I whispered to her with my chin on her shoulder, 'and people can go freely anywhere everywhere like birds, then it is 'One Country World'.' I said. It fetched a smile on her face. 

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

The author has left no stone unturned to delight you at times with number of lively quotes. I simply highlighted them to read them again while flipping off its pages. It's rare when you are highly caught up by the author's narrative and this story did that job for me.

Plot & Narrative: 5/5
Title & Cover: 4/5

Appreciations of the Book. 

I wish all the best to the author and want to read more of the his work in near future and I feel deeply grateful to the Author J. Alchem for providing me with the opportunity to read his remarkable work of literature.
