Have you ever wondered about the deep meaning of life? About why human beings were created and who the Creator is? Abraham Dagesh’s insights on his book The First Cause may be able to enlighten you regarding these matters.
The First Cause, a book written by Abraham Dagesh as mentioned above and translated by David Ben-Nahum, talks about life, the world, and the Creator. It is like a spiritual journey that inspires and motivates others along the way and speaks of the doubts people have. Basically, the author talks about his perception of truth through his words in the contents, something that I personally found to be interesting.
First off, I have to admit that I was caught off-guard by the contents of the book when I read it the first time. I did not really expect the words to have a poetry-like arrangement, so it kind of made me lost interest. However, I decided to try it out until the end since I had already started reading it.
What I liked about the book is that it was eloquently written and the contents held a deep meaning to them. During the time when I read it, I felt like my mind was clear and I was just perceiving the words and the messages the author was trying to convey. There were also times when it seemed like I was meditating and seeing a different outlook into the world, something that made me ponder if something in me will change after finishing this book.
Meanwhile, I did not really dislike it much. I admit, though, that it took me quite a long time to finish it since I needed to envision the words in my head and appreciate their true meaning. Because I am usually a fast reader, it became a sort of new experience for me, but I did not actually mind having to slow down and process it little by little since it was, in my opinion, interesting enough to hold my attention.
All in all, I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Unfortunately, I cannot give a perfect score since I felt like it was lacking something essential, something more thought-provoking and memorable to stay in my mind. I am, however, recommending this to those who would like some motivation in their lives and would like their doubts or questions to be answered through this author’s philosophy. On the other hand, this book is not for ones who don’t read or dislike poetry arrangements.
