5.0 out of 5 stars Ineffable Wonder, 31 May 2013
This review is from: Only the Good (Paperback)
It is with a certain sense of apprehension that I undertake to review a work of such incomparable genius. No words could possibly express the incredible profundity of this, the magnum opus of one of the finest authors, not to mention the finest minds, of our age. Its artistic merits alone far eclipse the comparatively meagre talents of such literary figures as Tolstoy, Shakespeare, Schiller and Cervantes. Others have mentioned the incisive political insights, ingeniously hidden by a man of whom Prime Ministerial office would not be worthy. Others have mentioned the piercing political polemic against the excesses of the Blair era. Personally I was particularly inspired by his cogent and foolproof solution to the Middle East Peace process, while his observations on the rights of man frequently moved me to tears. It hardly needs to be said that there is much to instruct us in the matter of how our present economic crisis might be equitably resolved, especially in his treatment of the Cornish fishing industry.

Yet a review which stops only at these almost trifling insights fails utterly to do justice to the timeless genius of this novel - so much so that I rather worry that earlier reviewers have quite thoroughly missed the point. Indeed I would not venture to add to what had been said were it not that this book is a work of sublime spiritual insights. The reader who persists in repeated readings, accompanied of course by a suitable regime of meditation, will find themselves lifted to a higher level of consciousness. Guru Sheppard's message has been an overflowing fountain of inner peace and wholeness to me ever since my 57th reading. No more stirring exhortation to virtue exists in our language today and this book should be the childhood companion of the troubled youth of this land. I cannot express enough my ardent hope that a kindle edition will soon be available, so that this novel can unleash the tidal wave of enlightenment hidden between its noble pages.
