“This is for the first time I’m writing a review of a book, and that too for ‘Intelligence Code, Part I: Arena Of Great Heroes’ by BJ Avilla. This book, as a novel thoroughly able to keep a reader’s attention as well as the reader, glued to it. The story is very well-knit with lots of turns and twists, keeping us eager to know more
and more about it. It is a simple story, but written with extreme care to bring out the complexities in the plot, all throughout. The story of perverted PIRA hero, Thomas Collins has been very well elaborated to make the reader feel for himself all the disadvantages of pseudo-heroes and hero worship, the dangers of an armament race that each nation has been contesting to master all of the world, and the hope for victory of good over evil, as this part of the story winds up. Being a debut novel, one can’t help but ignore the editing mistakes at a few places, but outshined by the flow of events and language used.
As a book, it can be classified under many genres, and no matter where it fits, it gives the reader an insight into various facets of multiple religions, their ideologies and the ideology of war. For the first time, I was able to distinguish between Judaism and Zionism as two separate entities. Ths novel gives an insight to the ideologies of Druids and Druidry, which was unknown to me til now.
Summarily, this novel is worth reading.”
