A bit of Harry Potterish

This book will be a great treat to the harry potter fans because the elements are all in there and offers a whole lot of magic and innovative characters. The whole book is about time and days and the guardians of the time. The concept is new and can be a bit hard. The book started really smooth and nicely and as things progressed, the plot thickened as so did the nuisances and intricate details of a different world where days of the week are personified and it kind of was difficult for me in between to keep track because of a little too much details thrown at me suddenly but still the flow and the narration is good and interesting and it is a journey through magical world and fighting the evils and should be appealing in my opinion to everyone.

With the book, the start is fantastic and sets the tone and mood for and its only in the middle when the actual journey kicks off, that things get a bit confusing and shaky because the concept do diverge into various streams and it kind of requires effort to keep track. But once you are able to indulge yourself into the whole world and plot, the book definitely is a joyous ride and is actually fun

The concept of the book is totally different and because of the same it could be a little difficult to understand but that does not mean it is not a good read.
