Opening Sentence: “Adversity never comes alone”, said the Candyman looking at Nasir whilst pouring vodka into a glass for me.
The book ‘God won’t help’ is set in Kabul. Divided into Four chapters, the book revolves around the conversation between Shiv, a Civil Engineer, who is depressed and lonely. Nasir a Pashtun and Shiv’s only friend and, The Candyman – Former US Army Special Officer.
A real eye-opener, the book answers our many questions that we have all asked at some point in our life, Why isn’t God helping us? Why is he blind eyed to our problems? and many such questions. It isn’t that Author is denying God’s existence. But what the Author is trying to say to us is that knowingly or unknowingly, we heavily rely on God for every little problem. But it’s us who has to solve our own problem. And it’s us who has to right our wrong, only then the path ahead will become easy. And don’t forget the famous saying “Karma’s a bitch, it strikes back”.
The narration is good, but a wee bit dragging at some places. Hardly 106 pages long, the book is an easy read.
Quote: Fear was a currency that led only to Bankruptcy.
If you are a Non-Fiction lover then you should definitely read it. The book kind of changes your perspective in a good way. A good book overall.
