Book: The King Of The Sea
Author: Nandan Gautam
“We live our lives in blindness, and cloak it with knowledge. Like a watch that keeps time, but knows nothing of it,” The Voice spoke. “But I will break time, so that you can know what it truly is.” ~ The Book of Sirius
A metaphysical novel paired with two companion music albums, The King of the Sea transports you into a new dimension, where reality lies suspended between the past and the future. Push play and you are beamed into The King of the Sea universe, shifting from the writer’s inner journey towards the truth to a fictional character’s similar quest. The memoir and the thrilling sea epic weave in and out, diving into the deepest layers of the subconscious with startling honesty and gut-wrenching emotionality, offering a wealth of insights into personal growth, self-revelation and ultimately, love.
I love the illusion created by the book cover. The colours and designs are enough to attract readers.
To be honest this is the first time ever when I read a metaphysical Novel and a musical odyssey. It did take me some time to understand the story and concept, but once I was familiar, it became very interesting for me. This book had many things to teach me. Obviously so many quotes in the book made this book a special gem for me. I really appreciate how beautifully the author has written this book.
It can be a little difficult for beginners and one might take some time to get acquainted with the book. Overall if you wish to read something inspiring, poetic and musical, then this book is for you. I will recommend to all readers to read this book once.
