book preview book review book review for C. JoyBell C. new book by C. JoyBell C. The Conversation of Venusta Uzma Khan
Beta Reader Uzma
This is what Uzma had to say about my book while she was reading it:
I’m half way through the thought provoking journey of reading The Conversation of Venusta. Sometimes mesmerised sometimes riveted but totally enraptured, so much that I don't want to read it fast lest it ends. The most amazing thing so far is that I feel I am having these conversations myself. That I’m back to being the curious child that I was. And all along I’m imagining Venusta. Like sometimes I try and imagine God. Not to see really but to Feel.
Relishing every bit, little by little, more and more.
Love and light
And this is what Uzma is saying after reading the whole conversation:
“Ahh so it ended. But then did it end really? What is so marvelous about ‘The Conversation of Venusta’ is that it never begins or ends. It’s about everything, everywhere, all the time.
I felt as if I was transposed to right in the middle of the Universe. It weaved for me a hammock of gossamer-like feelings and I lay happily in it, swinging swiftly and gazing at the stars that it kept strewing all around me, sourced from that deep space of awareness and oneness with one’s higher self and the Divine.
Such a special book in that it never preaches yet it’s like a sacred scripture. I want to read it again and again, whenever I want to lay in my hammock again. And I won’t even have to hold the book to read it every time. The words, thoughts and feelings it ignited, triggered, crystalized and synthesized for me have become an imprint. I will wear this gossamer around me and I will pass it on to my daughter.
You are amazing C. JoyBell C. Such a wizardry of words that tantalize one’s deepest thoughts, to come dancing out. I feel at peace, like a patient does after getting a dose of medication. Like having the shore in sight when drifting, the promise of a beautiful land of understanding. It directly interacted with my soul and left me with a tingling calmness and peace.
I was enchanted when I read ‘The Conversation of Merachefet’. And then this was simply rapturous. It’s a book that you feel; not read, but feel. Like every time I have felt something I have had a conversation with myself in trying to understand my feeling. Reading these two books has given me immeasurable hope that I am neither alone nor mad. How wonderful it is to have someone like C. JoyBell C. put it out there as something so natural, simple and earnest.
Simply Marvelous. Waiting for the encore. God bless.”
