Your Destination Has Arrived

Title: YOUR DESTINATION HAS ARRIVED : An Unbelievable Story You Would Love to Believe
Author: Barry Cheema
Publication: Notion Press

Blurb: Is it possible for the modern man to be happy, not virtually but in reality? Why is it that despite the tones of philosophies, motivational speeches and age-old meditation techniques, inner-peace and contentment seem to be unrealistic and impossible? Bruno, a K9 (police dog), gets a human life as a reward for his phenomenal act of bravery. He can stay in this human body forever, provided he fulfils a condition in the given time. But while doing so, he has to deal with the subconscious mind of this human body, which happens to be that of a terrorist!

A tale of hope, search and longing. An unbelievable story that you would love to believe.

Review: Your Destination Has Arrived is a rather off beat story of a cop dog. And you know how we all love dogs (here’s looking at you, A Dog’s Purpose). The plot of the book is quite interesting. A dog takes a human form and what follows is a philosophical journey for the reader.

The characters of Bruno and Russell are well-developed. They have a lot of layers and surely tug at your hearts. It will also certainly appeal to pet owners. You can actually divide the book into two parts- one the story of Bruno, the dog. And the other is the philosophical part of this book. So, the latter is more like a mirror that would make you want to reevaluate your life.

All in all, this book is a great read. But it feels like it drags on way too long. Personally, I would have preferred if it was shorter. Why? Because that would have made it more crisp to read.

Still, Your Destination Has Arrived is highly recommended for its unconventional storyline and the message it carries.
