BOOK REVIEW: Project Bodi by Hosein Kouros-Mehr

Pages: 219, Kindle Edition
Published: September 2017
Cover Rating: 3/5
How many science fiction books you have read on the future of out species? Out of them, how many are dystopian? Recently, I watched Blade Runner and I liked the flying cars. What if the occurrence of changes are dystopian not as the society but for the large corporations of the world of today. What if Apple becomes obsolete?
Project Bodi: Awaken the Power of Insight by Hosein Kouros-Mehr is unique in two ways. First, is the scope of reality in next 15 years will seem realistic enough to a reader to lure in. Second reason being that this book is not just a piece of fiction and elaborates much on topic of peace of mind and avoiding distractions.
The storyline’s base is in year 2029 where Google is the most dominant company. Head of Artificial Intelligent Department at the organisation is leading the Project Bodi. The project has a deadline in which the Artificial Intelligence team has to come with a product that is a smartglass with most advance Augmented Reality technology. In present world, we are seeing revolution in Mixed Reality that includes Augmented and Virtual Reality. The plot majorly revolves around three characters, Shiv Patel, the CEO of the company, Dr. Bethany Andrews, the head of Artificial Intelligence department and Austin who is a lead and highly skillful developer. Together they embark on a journey to discover the inner source of their own life.
The plot covers up most of the complex concepts in the starting and prepares the reader for a smoother reading. Most science fiction storylines display artificial intelligence as a source of a scary future ahead but this book does exact opposite. It forecasts how a powerful technology can help us to enhance our lives. I love the fact that the major focus of the author here is how help youth from getting distracted from their work and life and immense themselves in a constant loop. Being mindful.Using the power of our own mind is not a set of hurdles to cross, but it is a process that an individual should tackle and practice in their daily life. This book shows how to do that and I credit the author for not making it a complete self-help style of a book but rather create a story out of it to entertain as well as educate us.
The characterisation of this book is a strong point. The characters already have a background that is unfold to a reader as necessary. The strong point here is regardless of their past actions and activities, these characters come work on their present, the transformation the go under. The writing style uses third person narrative voice and easy to digest language.
I recommend this book to anyone who is science fiction fan to a someone who wants to enjoy a good book that has a strong moral behind the story.
4 out of 5!

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. (Marcus Aurelius)

Cover Rating: 3/5

On the eve of Halloween this year, I decided to read something different. A book that is based on the Halloween night, written by Eamonn Murphy, Arnos Hell – Horror at NHS Direct. I know many think that horror fiction is not their piece of bread, I used to think that, but I must tell you there are books that might seem to represent a traditional way of this genre but are attractive enough to try out. Not every spirit is bad, there are some good souls even in afterlife.
