My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book absolutely enthralled me. Interlaced between the chapters of the main story are seven vignettes, rich with metaphors and beautiful prose linking colors to all living things; the seven colors representing the seven Hindu Chakras.
As the characters face highly relatable human experiences (a midlife crisis, the loss of a loved one, the search for meaning, a bad diagnosis, the need for love, the angst of loneliness), the author weaves in the themes of colors, spirituality, courage, and the interconnectedness of our lives.
J. Schlenker is clearly an artist on every level and a brilliant writer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever wanted to connect the dots of this confusing existence we all share.
