The book is will keep you hooked as this gives you moral values for your philosophical side, A Must Read.

I Am The Lord-Ezuth Aani

Religion is an emotive issue and religious strife is one of the main causes of war in the modern world

You are going to study the life story of Jagan who learns different religions. The book talks about various religious conversions.Some grammar mistakes but the research undergone to create this book is commendable.This book has given me more insights on pitfalls of Christianity and Islam.

Plot is clearly laid with less unnecessary complexity. Loves the way the English is uses keeping it simple and neat.

A decent book with a clear vision. This book will talk about the differences and similarities of different religions and the bitter and ugly conversion tactics.And you will travel to countries including India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Spain, Canada, and Sri Lanka along with the protagonist.Though the blurb talks about adventure and love, I feel this book concentrates more on adventure and very less love. I personally didn’t like the romance part of this novel, very less than actually promised.

It answers the simple question. Why would someone ask you to convert to Islam or Christianity.

Review of I am the Lord

Title : I am the Lord

Author : Ezhuth Aani
Blurb : This unique novel explores the world of religious conversion without actually condemning any particular religion. Set in the 1990s, the story travels to many countries including India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Spain, Canada, and Sri Lanka. It delves into the philosophies of several religions while entwining an interesting story of adventure and love. Many of its predictions made two years ago when first published in Tamil are now playing out in the Middle East. The recent developments in Iraq and Syria, and the worldwide ramifications including events in France, Egypt and Mali bear testimony to the deep understanding of the historico-political landscape described in the novel. With religious proselytizing becoming a major issue in India, this novel is a must read for the discerning Indian reader. “”A very different novel which is also a philosophical enquiry”" Indra Parthasarathy (Sahithya Award winner) “”An experimental Creative Writing”" KS Sivakumaran (Daily Mirror) “”A gripping saga of cultures and religions”" Thuraiyuran (Daily Mirror)
My View : 

Through this book, author has shared his opinions about religions and political belief with the help of Jagan, the protagonist of the story.As the story of the Jagan progress,the reader could see how he got introduces to many religious and political aspects, and how his life get affected by the same.Through the story of Jagan, author very wisely portrays his philosophy, offering reading knowledge of various religions.

When it comes to religion, it is not that easy to write whatever your heart suggests.One has to keep note that he shouldn’t  hurt someone in the process.As the author has chosen the same subject to write upon, he took great care to not to pen such words which could make the reader feel bad about something.

Along with the philosophy served to the readers, a decent story is captured in the frame, so that the reader could feel and understand the words of the author through the life of an individual.This is not an ordinary story of an individual, but is filled with some morals and values which would feed something healthy to the reader’s mind.

His writing style is something I cherished throughout the journey.He somehow maintains to keep the reader’s attention alive by feeding some valuable knowledge at every next node.
