The whole world is upside down. People are walking in the sky with the ground moving above their heads. And the reason is simple; a bestselling author is in love. But why the whole world is inverted? What’s so special about this love? Or worse?
A man throws his masculine brain and heart aside and fixes a feminine one there. And the reason is simple; he wants to live the life of his lover, for 24 hours. But why does he want to do that? What’s the need?
A man, neatly dressed in a suit, is playing with his bowler hat, on a highway at dawn. And the reason is simple; he needs a lift. But why does he need a lift? What’s his purpose?

There are many books which I have read twice but “The HighWay Man” by J Alchem is the first book that I read twice in one go. The book contains three wonderful stories and trust me you won’t want any story to end. From the first word of the book to the last one each word will just touch deep inside your heart. Yes, I mean from dedication itself. Apart from author’s inspiration in life he dedicated this book to all the broken people out here. Never ever, any such acknowledgement has touched my heart but even his acknowledgement was such that I read it twice. I guess you can know the intense feeling present in acknowledgement which made me read it twice.

The first story is about the bestseller author Nicholas Sieum who has written super amazing romantic series. Dr. Rusenvelt, a 62 years old physician is a huge fan of Nicholas Sieum. The turning point comes when the doctor receives a call from Nicholas Sieum father. After meeting doctor comes to know that the author is in love but with his book character Catherine. Nicholas love for Catherine is so deep that it has actually turned to a disease and the cure done by doctor was something else than expected.

The second story is of Jihaan and Sidzy. I know this story will be loved by everyone who reads this book. If ever you ask a girl what type of guy she wants to marry ? The description will just like Jihaan character. Even the dream of getting married to a man like Jihaan was making me feel like being of heaven.

Last but not the least, the third story made me cry a lot. By, ‘A lot’ I literally mean a lot. If I wouldn’t have reading an e-book, I would have hugged the book and shed my tears. The story is about a father and his son Ayaan. Ayaan who usually used to hide her tears after her mother died in an accident; laughed a lot when one day he was going to Agra with his father and met a man on Highway who asked for a lift from them. And the journey along with #KuchBhi just made me laugh a lot. But after few days, Ayaan came to his father crying holding a newspaper. The Highway man actually changed their life.

The language of the book is quite simple and easy to understand. The book is simply outstanding. J Alchem, I loved your baby. Your baby is a shining star among other star. It is surely an emotional read but an inspirational too. I would recommend this book to every person reading this review. Do read this book and I am sure you will come back and thank me for this recommendation.

RATING : 5/5
