“Fantom Journey: The Best Things in Life Are Free” byacedog (Akan) is a fast paced, comedy-adventure novel. It’s the first book of the “Fantom Journey” series. I enjoyed the light-hearted story and overall characters. I liked that the story told seemed to have an element of spiritual truth. So I decided to review it here. Additional info found at websiteqq.net.
The story begins with two friends, YA and YE, who decide to visit an old friend of theirs from their junior high days. They go to his house and find his body – just burned to ashes. They are haunted by visions of their childhood in poverty and servitude. They then travel to Cepat Dan, where they are attacked by zombies, vampires and worse creatures. In order to save themselves, they go to a floating village where adults have left their adult children as orphans. They are attacked again by zombies, but are saved by a giant insect that attacks them from above.
“Fantom Journey: The Best Things in Life Are Free” byacedog” takes the reader on an engrossing journey. Although the beginning seems like a trifle too routine, the plot grows with enjoyable twists and turns. There were several times when I was confused about what the characters were really saying, but that happens to be one of its selling points. The story progresses along the same path, from the earlier scenes with the adults where we learn more about Dan, to the present with the adults at the village. The plot and characters are very engaging.
I really liked how the author infused the spirit of Feng Shui into the tale, especially with the reference to the yin and yang of the five elements. This is not your typical environmental science fiction where the planets are flat and random and have no real contours or patterns. “Fantom Journey: The Best Things in Life Are Free” has a more profound message than that. One that teaches that even when you have no material possessions, your relationships will survive and flourish. It also teaches that people deserve each other and that the family is a key to success rather than material possessions.
The main character, Dan, is an orphan who barely knows his own identity and yet he identifies with the other characters because he feels that they too are missing something in their lives. The novel is told in a story form more akin to a fable than a novel, with vignettes interspersed with vignettes of Dan helping the others, and the reader slowly being drawn into the plot, until the last paragraph where the reader is left craving for more of the fantastical tale. This novel is a beautiful example of how a story can be told, in the tradition of Japanese fairy tales, but also in modern times with the use of Chinese herbal medicine. The themes of harmony, friendship, and family are brought to life with a unique style and sense of magic. The daftar situs just is online tercaya is an easy read, and I’m looking forward to reading more from the author, Randa Jarrar.
The novel “Daftar Satus Judi QQ Online Tercaya” (DAJJA – The Best Things in Life Are Free) is subtitled, “Aka Bisa and Dan.” There are eleven volumes that make up the set, all written by Randa Jarrar, and they are all excellent pieces of work.
