HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP YOUR FAITH IF YOU WERE TRAPPED FOREVER?

Manjiri, a devout atheist, is meeting her friend Manu after 20 years. Their conversation soon turns into an argument over God’s existence, and its nature. What seemed to be a harmless debate becomes Manjiri’s worst nightmare when she is trapped by Manu in a cell. Are Manu’s intentions malign or is this some weird test of faith? Take a seat, buckle your belt, as you set yourself on the world’s most claustrophobic, yet enlightening, journey of Manjiri. Be prepared to see life in a radically different way with this bold, edge of the seat thriller.

Review

This is the first time I’ve tried spiritual as a genre. I always thought the genre is too preachy for my taste but I still gave it a shot.

I am at a loss of words of how to explain what I felt reading this book.

The words connected with me so much that I could feel the cringe, the angst, the desperation of the scenes.

I don’t know whether it redefined my faith but I was somewhat moved.

And the ending was really really unprecedented.

It is a short read, a couple of hours for a reader with moderate speed and an hour tops for a speed reader.

I don’t regret reading this book.

If you’re looking for something new to read, go ahead.

My Rating: 4/5

  1. Hi Pia,
    Long time, as they say in The Gambia. Hope all is well with you. All ok here apart from a cold virus which is encouraging me to rest. My plan is to try to get some reading done which has been on my ‘to do list’ for a while. I have a few books at the ready. At night I have been reading ‘the alchemist’ by Paulo Coehllo but am finding it a little ‘ploddy’ at present but am sticking with it as it only has a few pages.
    This book sounds up my street & will give it a go.
    Did we meet on a Future Learn course? I may be wrong
