Rose is Arthur's next door neighbor, a woman who has had a difficult life, a woman he has come to love. She has devoted much of her life to cultivating and nurturing a rare -- in fact, the only one remaining, -- exotic plant named the Witherings.
You begin reading this novel (admittedly dark) and your curiosity keeps you reading. You want to know what is going to happen next in this action intense story. The plot is skillfully developed; the story is filled with challenges and obstacles the protagonist must overcome.
A.R. Khan has created a cast of intriguing characters. Arthur is an original who is consumed by a compulsive drive for revenge. But humanity lies deeply in his being. An especially nice touch is the symbolism of the Witherings, which underlies the story. Do you not think so? Reviewed by the author of the Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
PS: one characteristic I find in novels lately (and in this one) is a tendency to include in a scene unnecessay detail. This is only a minor 'detail' that does not detract from the reading of this entertaining novel.
Through the entire book you will be turning pages trying to figure out the deepening puzzles and clues the increasingly mad patient offers the doctor as he continues to struggle with end stage IV brain cancer to answer the many questions he has about his wife.
The book is an excellent red. It reminds us that fate may write our story but we choose the path we walk. Only we decide the who, what, where, when and why. We write our story. Throughout the book the doctor tells us the ten rules of life that his father taught him. Each one of us would do well in life to learn these 10 "suggestions" to guide us as we walk our own paths. It's a story with a lot going on. You'll enjoy it if you like your books with a little bit more than a story. Keep on reading!
Each chapter led me further and further into the devious plan of the main character. I never could predict what was going to happen next. I was very saddened by his ongoing deterioration as the novel progressed. Also, I was never really sure whether what was happening was reality or delusion. This was very entertaining.
There was NOTHING predictable about this book. I had no idea how it was going to end and I loved that. As long as you are aware about what you are getting into I know you will enjoy this book.
Mr. Khan has a wonderful grasp of character development, plot, and dialog. He uses short, spare strokes (as well as some long, full ones) to paint his novel in brilliant colors.
This book has my highest recommendation. It is sensational.
--Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Arthur is declining rapidly but he still has enough mental audacity to plan Richard's demise. But the race is on and the Grim Reaper is gaining ground every hour.
Every character in this book has a grief stricken back story. The only happy story might be rose who keeps a rare tropical plant that takes up one whole bedroom. If it is not carefully attended..it too will die a miserable death.
Author Khan loves details. He will give you more than you really need to know about every thing including in bold type, TEN LIFE LESSONS learned from his father.
There is tension and plenty of things going wrong in this 100 year old Condo but there is too much repetition of the flooding
Scene, the headaches, and the flashbacks. Way too much .description.The author needs brevity. Find a way to say more by saying less.
The author depends on coincidence too often. Example: He hires a Private Investigator to find His wife's parents. It takes five years but they are found in the Ukraine and flown to the US so that they may attend Martha's 40th Birthday. Their
taxi is broadsided and they are killed just blocks away from the party.
Just one of the unnecessary scenes adding more depression to the story.
The chapters don't flow well. Not all the scenes are causally and believabley tied to the ones that precede and follow them.
Transitions are not smooth. The story is choppy.Read more ›
