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.
The Indigo Sun by Rupa Bhullar
Indigo Sun is about Maya, an NRI girl who returns to Rajasthan in search of her true self, and a purpose. On her journey she travels places and meet several people, finding herself joy in small events. The book has received nice ratings. The exploration of culture-rich Rajasthan was interesting. Excellent writing.
There's something about you - Yashodhara Lal
‘There’s Something About You’ by Yashodhara Lal certainly makes for an entertaining, light read. The story revolves around Trish. Now, Trish is a twenty-eight year old girl, recently unemployed, overweighed, single girl, who hides behind her sarcasm to cope with the world.
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.
Book review – Wings of Courage
“Wings of Courage” as the name suggests is a story about courage. Whose courage? Yours and mine if we really decide to juice out something from it, beautifully portrayed through the protagonist Saksham. The story is about Saksham, a fairly rich boy, just when he was about to finish his graduation, undergoes a series of incidents and finds himself struggling between his love life, his career, and the socio-political condition of India.
Book-Review---Rainbow---the-shades-of-love
Rainbow – the shades of love is the story of Yuvraj aka Yuvi, who is portrayed as a compulsive flirt with a long past of short-term relationships. Yuvi is living in a PG with a group of friends (who knows only two things–drinking and perving). Early in the story Yuvi develops feelings for a girl named Simran living in the house right in front of the PG.
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
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.
