Starting off with the quality of the book. Being the first book of All Books Global, as per my knowledge, i feel,  they have done a pretty decent job pertaining to the Cover Art, printing and binding. Coming to the content part of the book. The language is kept very simple, with no use of fancy and heavy words, plus marks from me for it. But the book needs editing, The Visualization of the Author can very well be Polished with it.
Character portrayal of Jia and Jivan has been very well taken care off though.
I somehow feel that the Acknowledgement part should be in the end and the book should begin with the About the Author Part, which was not the case in this book, it was the other way round. Something different, but has worked in the favor for this book as its mentioned that the Authors Wife and Children suffered alienation for Mr Sudama Chandra Panigrahi (The Author) To complete the book

"Time has its own speed of ticking but anxiety wants it to tick faster" This feeling can very well be felt as the Author tries to explain it. Along with, "when time betrays, fulcrum crumbles, the sun becomes dull and night sky aches.'Time Oh time ... who moves you, when you will be mine?'"

The book also deals withe the political situation existing between India and China. Though it is much not different than that mentioned in the book, likewise its said that Truth is always stranger than fiction.

Book Review Forum awards 3.25 stars out of 5 for this debut Author.
