Secret Life of Fat - Sylvia Tara
Who loves fat? I guess no one. “The Secret Life of Fat”, an enlightening book by Sylvia Tara answers all of our questions related to fat. After reading the book no one is going to look at fat the same way they did before. And, hopefully, the new insight into fat is going to help them a great deal. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
Book review - An Unsuitable Woman Shinie Antony
An Unsuitable Woman compiled by Shinie Antony is a collection of short stories, essays, poems exploring the lives of freethinking woman striving hard to find their place in a society where men decide their present and future. Coming from the pens of several renowned Indian authors the narratives are all marvellous, invoking a strong feeling in the heart of the reader—a mix of strength and fear, empathy and repulsion, calmness and anger.
Book Review - The Fault In Our Stars
I would like to award this book with four stars out of five. The topic chosen by the author is a critical topic that can only be dealt with care and compassion. The story is about Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, both victims of different kinds of cancers. The main story starts off when Hazel Grace finds a blue-eyed boy staring her throughout a Cancer Support group in the literal heart of Jesus.
Yamraj Number 5003
Yamraj has always been a fascinating character, much different from the rest of the Gods and Deities. This book Yamraj number 5003 presents a very unique perspective into the popular belief of Yamraj and Yamdoots as soul takes/transporters or whatever you want to call them. It’s certainly a food for thought, how this soul business works and author of the book, Mrinal Chatterjee has hit the right note.
The Poetry Of A Common Indian Female: Real Women, Real Stories of Hope and Optimism!
Before I even go to the book review I’d like congratulate the author for his tremendous efforts in bringing this book to reality. Not only the concept is quite commendable, the presentation of the book, including the book cover, bookmark and everything else is great.
Book Review: The Lightning Thief
Even though ‘The Lightening Thief’ is meant to be a Children’s book (or, young adult), I don’t see why adults can’t enjoy it. This book (and the series) is a complete package, full of entertainment, humor, good story, good characters, good pace and good writing style.
Book-Review-Faceless
At first I was pretty excited to read the book since superhero stuff has always fascinated me. Also, the blurb had my expectations raised. However, I don’t think that actual book was anywhere up to my anticipations. First of all, the name ‘faceless’ could have been a great name, if it was significant to the story in any way
Book Review Pawan The Flying Accountant
I have to admit Pawan: The Flying Accountant is one of the best books I have from Indian authors recently. Not because it was great on writing elements, but because it was interesting and kept me hooked until I finished it. The book is about Pawan, a depressed, dejected and rejected fellow who happened to be an accountant, and has lost the will to live. Why else would he try to get himself killed, despite knowing he cannot be killed.
Ravana Leela
Almost every Indian, particularly Hindu, is well-versed with Ramayana, the epic mythology involving Lord Rama, most popular of the Vishnu avatars, his consort Lady Sita and brother Laxman. Though, Ravana Leela has its roots within the epic Ramayana, this book tells the tale in a very different and refreshing way.
