The Big Switch: It's never too late by John thomas

“The Big Switch: It's never too late” by John Thomas is a motivational novel that inspires young minds to always follow their dreams and never give up. Every employee of private sector working “9 to 5” (pun intended) would surely relate to the protagonist’s character and the instances mentioned in the novel. The story starts on a happy note turning the life of Keith’s character upside down and then again ending on a positive note. 

It highlights the unfair ethics followed in most of the jobs nowadays, where only the people who are in good books of managers like Mathur end up being satisfied and rest are disregarded, irrespective of the amount of efforts and hard work put by them throughout the year. However, not all managers are biased and rude, some people like Ramesh can be kind and friendly too and the same is depicted in the novel. Same is the case with Maya and Kyra’s characters which are totally opposite to each other. Ramesh and Kyra’s introductions in Keith’s life evidently change Keith’s attitude towards perceiving his life and decisions. My favorite character in the novel is of Brijesh as he is one of those loyal friends who always stay by your side and are the only ones that cheer you up after you long tiring day at work. It’s really interesting to watch Keith’s life taking new paths with every turning page and how his frowning character moulds and grows gradually into a much mature and composed personality.

Pros:
Personally, I could totally imagine myself in Keith’s character as he struggles between his personal and professional life. It infuses positive energy and enthusiasm to listen to your heart and keep believing in it until you succeed. 
The most inspiring thing about this novel is how everything falls right into place with time after enduring all challenges that life throws at you. The troubles and demoralization that Keith faces would have left anyone hopeless but it is quite stimulating to see him get out of the difficult situations as a true winner. One would definitely feel happy after reading the ending part and this would leave a constructive impact on readers. 
The thing which sets this book apart from others is that Keith doesn’t live his childhood dreams but instead finds new interests like football and writing and devotes his entire self towards it.

Cons: 
The theme of the novel is a little cliched where a frustrated individual finally decides to enjoy his life and take risks which eventually turns good for him. The book is not a page turner as you would gradually sense what’s next so it is quite intuitive and similar to various success stories of people who took risks and found their actual calling.

Verdict:
This book is a must read for people who are disappointed with their careers or love relationships. It guides you to choose what’s the best for you when things aren’t going your way.
It is not the kind of book which portrays suspense, twists or drama. It is quite instinctive and would not leave your jaws dropped but definitely the apt one for happy ending lovers.
