God is a Woman by Michael Tavon
God is a Woman is a Price Jones Novel written by Michael Tavon. It is a story of self-destruction, and love that only a very special woman can give.
Price Jones is a down-on-his luck novelist with a dark past and a murky future. After his mother died of heroin overdose, Price is left with two siblings who are his only reason for living. With his reckless life of drinking and indiscriminate sex, how can Price take care of two more people when he can’t even take care of himself? To make matters even worse, Price falls in love with two women: Benu, whom he feels deep attraction and Iris, whom he feels deep connection.
The story is written in casual tone making it an easy read. Scenes are realistically portrayed and dialogues are fitting which showcases the author’s writing skills. The plot runs smoothly and solidly with strategic twists and the readers are drawn to the story with that enormous question hanging over their heads: what would happen to Price?
However, though the ending is no doubt satisfactory, it leaves some unanswered questions like why is Price too deeply attached to Iris, what happened in the past that he simply couldn’t let go? A short chapter for a back story on Price and Iris would have helped. Moreover, though Benu seems like a likable character, some things about her weren’t explained, like why does she behave the way she does? Again, a short back story on her would have been nice.
All in all, this is an enjoyable story that readers can learn a lot from. It is interesting, hopeful and, somehow, inspiring.
