shouldn't the object of the sentence be used with "definite" form? i deduced that rule from the previous examples

To use a "definite" article, you need a "definite" noun:

  • We write the book of our life = nous √©crivons le livre de notre vie, where "of our life"/"de notre vie" define the book.

Otherwise, it is about a book, one book, we have nothing more to define it, so in English and in French, the indefinite article is required.
