Before the review, let me share that I feel blessed to have been the reviewer that has probably read the most interesting works till now. And also, that it makes me happy to claim that the High Andes by Rolf Margenau is also one of these excellent works, and that it also has the potential to evoke strong reader interest in the long run just like the previous books I have reviewed.

High Andes is very well written and the best thing about it is that it attempts blending political voyage in the cherubic settings; hence certainly it is a worthy book even if someone is not a fan of political-historical fiction. The innocence of a common man and how his life is affected because of breakdown in governmental machinery is enough to touch hearts. The first chapter itself evokes interest when the mummy is laid to rest. I won’t give the story out but I would say that certainly it is a very good work.

Even before the setting or the story, the first thing that any reader would notice is the cover and it is vibrant and matches the central theme of the book very well. In fact, the pristine scene on the cover under the sharp gaze of strong beaked birds is enough to showcase the theme and setting that the writer will be speaking of later in his work.

I would say that this book is not normal run-of-the-mill kind; it has substance and evokes interest gradually. At several places the reading could get cumbersome for some, and sometimes one may need to go back and forth due to the sheer amount of new words, new locales and also because of amount of emotions it evokes. Despite writer’s attempt at remaining aloof, it is clear that he is indulgent in the central subject and it has yielded good results here in this book. For example, the scenic beauty that the words evoke in the mind of the reader and the contrast with the ground level turbulence would not have been possible without this indulgence. But somewhere a little humor should have been employed to make it extend its reach. Besides that it must be conceded that nowhere can anyone feel that any passages or lines or even words are unnecessary. The editing is sharp, the imagery loud while the words remain subtly brutal. All in all, it is a good book and can be read not once but several times.
