Review of Pursuit by Jim Murdoch

Pursuit - Jim Murdoch

Pursuit is a timeless, adventurous and philosophical novel about battling the shadows in order to find the inner light and connection to the divine guidance.
I love how the three stories bound by an ancient mysterious book merge together and support each other. All the stories are equally entertaining and lead to the same crucial conclusion, yet each of them also manages to keep its own unique atmosphere.

Sometimes, when a story has multiple protagonists, there’s the danger of one overshading the other, but I felt that this book achieved to keep them all equally likeable.
It’s a fast paced read, each chapter’s ending makes you want to go on, because you look forward to know more, uncover more mysteries and secrets.
What I also loved about the book is that its fairy-tale-like approach can be appreciated both by children and adults.
I recommend this story to anyone who is interested in mythology, particularly dragons and spirit guides, and is courageous and humble enough to confront his own shadow and find the light that resides within.
