About the Author:
Niles is a writer, a poet a philanthropist but most importantly a seeker. His first book ” Ladakh: Chronicles from the land of lamas ” which was published in 2009. “Beyond The Night. Before the Dawn” is an attempt from him to share his experiences and learnings through the aid of a comprehensible fictional narrative of love story stretching beyond life.
This book is way too deep. This book differs somewhat from the books I read previously. Its philosophical fiction. The story is emotional. The characters and their motivations are believable, and the plot although simple but it showcases the meaning of life and love.
It’s a story about love, death, and philosophy. Narration and language are very easy and can be read by a beginner. You can easily connect with characters and their emotions.
There really is too much to describe in this brief review. It is a very interesting novel, and I highly recommend it.
