Book Review: The Krishna-Christ Connexion by Oswald Pereira

I just read The Krishna-Christ Connexion by Oswald Pereira and found it quite fascinating. Here is what I thought.

BOOK COVER:

This was one of the cutest things about the book. I know it’s available in Kindle format only but even then, since the cover does play a major role, I will say it was quite attractive, fitted the title perfectly and did a great job at connecting to me.

Cover Rating – 4.5 / 5

TITLE JUSTIFICATION:

I haven’t seen many titles like this one. In fact, it’s one of a kind. it’s very intriguing. The first time I read it, I was perplexed and it made me automatically want to read more. This, I will say, is a very strong point about the book. Not to forget, the misspelled word ‘Connexion’ fit in quite well too!

Title Rating – 5 / 5

PLOT

Centered around the main prophecies of God and religion, the true yet selfish purpose of prayer as well as the political scenario revolving around religion, the author takes us through the journey of his pen to an alternate dimension. It is witty, loaded with satirical comedy and is great in its narrative, but what sticks out is the heavily loaded conversational style of writing. This, in my opinion, is the reason this book stands out.

Had it been a pedantic novel revolving God, it probably would not be garnering much appreciation. The length of the book is just 55 pages, which is perfectly suited to the central theme (Though I did wish it could have been longer!) and as the pages went by (or swiped by, in this case!) I was more and more involved.

The language was good, the devotional verses were quite aptly placed and the flow was electric.  A lovely read and you will probably catch me reading it a second time pretty soon!

Rating – 5 / 5

OVERALL IMPRESSION:

It is very interesting that the author chose a topic that is controversial but added his own personal touch to it, thereby making it seem more perceptional than judgmental. I am glad I stumbled upon this book.  I didn’t expect to read it so quickly but it was pleasantly surprising.

Final Rating: 5 / 5
Verdict: Definitely Recommended
