My Review


The Seventh Cup is a story revolving around a student of history, Verona who goes missing and how an agent gets around to solving this mystery by traveling countries and interviewing people and getting logistics straight amidst juggling romance with her newly married husband.

This is a story about Avinash and Verona, two characters from different background, and the story goes on to become how they get involved with each other via many terminologies that the author introduced such as 'Mind Transportation' 'Law of Attraction, The Phenomenon of Universal Rearrangement'

No doubt the phrasing was delectable and putting a distinct flavor in the mouth of the reader, but alas it did not last for long since the theory did not actually hold true towards the end thus, created confusion in the reader's mind. However, I would love to have a storyline developed on the above locutions and see where it goes :)

The Seventh Cup story is about friendship, goof-ups, confession, jealousy, hatred, murder, which eventually led to self-immolation.

Slow in the first half thus forcing the reader to read. The story is a mixed of tenses again leading to more confusion. Some scenes and dialogs between Verona and Avinash seemed to be a drag too. Also, some scenes of interaction between the detectives could have been omitted.

Amidst all the above pros and cons, the author left the reader spellbound with the climax, which was mind-blowing! Thus, making me raise my thumb up for a suggested read, and an inclination to read, "The Secret" which I had been delaying for a while.
