LATEST REVIEW — The Seven Gifts
Jessa L. @ Vera’s Luxury Reading:
A young boy is guided by an Angel who gives him seven books. He is told that he must read the books and interpret them. He must then return to the Angel and let her know whether or not he has learned the lesson behind the stories. Each book illustrates a valuable point and it is up to the young boy to know, understand, and be able to share the lessons with the world.
The seven books tell whimsical tales with a touch of seriousness about various characters and creatures that inhabit the world. Each character is put through a circumstance meant to test their inner being and show them that there is more to the eye than you can see.
The Seven Gifts That Came to Earth is probably the most enjoyable book I have read in a long time. I enjoyed the face value of each tale, but found myself re-reading each story to see if I could see what was beneath the surface before the boy figured it out with the guidance of the Angel.
The Seven Gifts That Came to Earth has many valuable lessons to be learned and sometimes it takes a bit of searching and thinking to figure it out for yourself. When you do, you will have learned something of importance that I hope will touch everyone.
I loved John Mellor’s choice of story telling. As I mentioned before, at first, the book seems very whimsical and the story within very simple. He changes fonts when he feels it will enhance the emotion he wants to portray. I found his way of weaving the tale in and out between the stories and the conversations between the Angel and the boy very smooth and a bit enchanting. I almost wished the book was longer, but as it is, it definitely gets its’ message across to the reader.
