This book was an entertaining read at times but I found it a bit too contrived for my taste (I'd already figured out the ending 50 pages into the book.) I found the character "Lucky" predictable, arrogant, dull and very self-centered. I found it difficult to care about her, I really did. I mean, here she was having what I consider a very charmed and wonderful life (particularly when compared to the lives of most other people)but all she seemed to do was whine and complain and wonder why it wasn't better. Don't get me wrong, she did experience genuinely difficult and challenging moments but I just couldn't figure out why she wasn't dancing around joyfully during the times between them. She never seemed to have a truly happy moment and I kept wondering, why?
There's a quote in this book that's used over and over again and is attributed to this book: "We are not human beings seeking a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings undergoing a human experience." This is not an original quote or concept. It is one that has been used throughout history by many spiritual philosophies, texts and leaders, such as "The Science of Mind" by Ernest Holmes, several writings and teachings of Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Don Miguel Ruiz just to name a few. It would have been nice for the author to give credit where credit is due even though this book is a work of fiction.
I was truly hoping that this book would be an undiscovered gem for me but I never connected with it. Oh well, better luck next time I suppose.
Transporting the reader in time by moving between the past and present Bapsy Jain introduces us to vivid life like characters like Steve, the gruff prisoner, Mike her new business manager, Amay the nerd and Shanti the voice of spirituality that is timeless. Expertly introducing twists "Lucky Everyday" manages to avoid the trap of being a formula based thriller. What really elevates this book to a new level is the hope and inspiration and powerful message it holds, Reaching beyond the mystery we unravel the heart of the novel - Shanti's teachings which we can all use in our everyday lives too.
For me it is a master piece I can refer to time and time again. A big thank you Bapsy Jain :).
the right way, it's not until the end that Lucky finally manages to do
that. This book is correct in that we're always having these things
explained to us, and we never understand them until it's been too
late. But sometimes we can still pick up the pieces and keep
going. It's difficult but doable. I'm glad this book explains that
