One of the strengths of this book is its originality. The author does an excellent job of creating unique and unexpected situations, from the horoscopes that seem to come true to the presence of a lion jumping over a fence. These elements add a touch of humor and fun to the story, making it an enjoyable read.
The characters in The Horoscope Writer are well-developed, each with their own individual personalities that are consistent throughout the story. This adds depth to the story, making it more engaging for the reader. Despite this, there are scenes in which the characters’ actions seem motivated solely by the needs of the plot.
