2 out of 4 stars
Share This Review
Walking Innocence Fence by Nikki James is a non-fiction book that explores a wide range of topics relating to psychology and philosophy. In the book, the author shares her views on issues that steal people’s joy and peace.
The author shares her views on topics such as morality and immorality, good and bad medicine, the evolution of man, quantum physics, breathing techniques, abortion, and many other topics. The author’s views and experience on reincarnation intrigued me. In the topic titled “Giant Recycling Plant in the Sky”, the author shares memories and experiences of her past life.
The book has a neat layout and is divided into chapters. It starts with a prologue wherein the author explains the genesis of her quest, followed by an introduction section, the rules, and various other topics. The section of “The Rules” acquaints the reader with the author’s writing style.
The book has a slow pace, and this pace made it difficult for me to grasp the direction it was taking and understand its theme. This is because the author touched on many topics in one section.
Overall, I rate the book 2 out of 4 stars. I am deducting two stars because the book lacks structure and coherence. The opening pages do not talk to the author’s aim of the book, do not build-up to the crux of the book, or even set the tone for the rest or some sections of the book. Instead, the first few pages touched on many unrelated topics, and reading through these pages felt like I was lost inside the author’s mind, moving from one train of thought to the next haphazardly. I am deducting the second star because the book contains several errors ranging from missing punctuation marks, fragmented sentences, and incorrect word usage.
The one aspect that I liked about the book was that the author does not force her views on the reader, but shares her experiences and knowledge to give context to her views. To further substantiate her strong views, she references the works of various published authors.
While the language used throughout the book was clean, I came across a few instances of minor profanity. The book also contains mild sexual scenes.
This book will appeal to readers who enjoy philosophical books. It will also be suitable for Catholic readers, as they will relate better with the author’s sentiments, most of which stem from her religious background.
