Book Review: “Birth Marked”
Book Title: Birth Marked
Author: Marvel Michael
Favorable part of the book
“ the canvas was filled with an array of dark colours. She suddenly felt naked; it told too much of her “
I love this in particular to how it related her feeling mixed in fear of what she felt on the inside.. I love the sound of it and the explicit touch to how her paintings made her naked. Art is a rare relation between the originality of any human and the connection of their soul- and this book had a way of reaching the reader and have them connect with the narrative part of the book.
“ Heart wished to keep secret “
1. Her father had been the most unbearable person; he went on and on and just wouldn’t let her hear her own thoughts.
What I liked about this expression is the relatable feel it gave me while I read. How true it is that a person’s direction can be uttered by an external voice which is important for the writer to share with the reader about an unresolved emotions.
I love the twist of the twin brother … who seem bitter and threaten. And trained for a takeover. This scenario brings me the reader to a moral point of knowing that putting your mind to whatever it is can be achieved.
I got a bit lost on chapter 3 – and later gathered that Mote had a family with Jack that moment when they were attacked in the woods.
The reader made a future forward from the wedding preparation to them already with a family – which made it less boring and more intriguing. I thought that was a smart move from the writer not to have kept her readers bored with all the
wedding details of “yes I do” which would have been cliché .
I read out loud just so I can keep up with the story and in between chapter 4 , I went mute as I was lost the visual play of the words – the suspense at the hospital left me panting for the next page.
The twist the writer used in bringing to the readers knowledge that jack has been unfaithful to his wife was unexpected – mote best friend being the unfaithful culprit was presented well, Although I would beg to argue it was quiet cliché of a narrative but I loved the approached to it.
Everyone seems to have a big secret hidden beneath their sleeves, and how the writer uncovered each person’s secret was suspense bound.
At first I thought the book was too English related, noticing the plot the writer used but as I continued to read – I had to forget my bias sentiment on the too English approach and began to enjoy the actual story behind the Birth Marked.
Sticking book title and compelling!
