The Rosie Project – Book Review


I was wondering “why isn’t the book adapted to movie yet?” A brilliant LOL read. It’s humorous and kept me going all through the read.

Yes, it has entered my ‘Gem’ list.

Thank You Jeeves – Book Review


thank-you-jeeves

My first Wodehouse and certainly wont be the last. Immediately ordered two more and my next read, sometime soon, is going to be ‘Pigs Have Wings’.  Thoroughly enjoyed the light humor. I am glad to have picked this one!

Jeeves is definitely a savior and an honest companion to Bertie Wooster. For every twist the life brings, Jeeves has a solution that can give a turn. The best part is that there are more in the series. Have you read them too?

Mock, Stalk and Quarrel – Review


msq-cover

It is a collection of 29 satirical tales varying and touching every aspect of social order. I am pretty sure the team would have had a lot of discussion and tuff-time on placing and ordering the stories. Each story on an average ranges from 8 to 10 pages.

There is satire touched at various levels. Some bring smiles throughout and some at the end. Some articulate the message throughout and some at the end. Here are my favorite five, numbered in the order of my preference:
1. The Leopard’s Tail by Kavitha Murali
2. A Serious Confession by Aryan Huria
3. Darkness Reigns at the Foot of the Lighthouse by Radhika Maira Tabrez
4. In Search of Mr Perfect by Piyusha Purnima Vir
5. Girl Talk by Kirthi Jayakumar

‘The Leopard’s Tail’ had me hooked from the very first paragraph. Brilliant Read. All in all, it was a good and fun read. Kudos to all the Authors and the Editor! This book is going to stand and smile on my bookshelf, calling me to pick up and read, yet again, every time!

 

When Breath Becomes Air – Review



Indian Bloggers

breath-becomes-air

I have been reading novel a month and for April I had picked When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.

It increased an avalanche more respect towards those sincerely practicing medicine and into medical research! That’s it for the take away from the book.

Tuesdays With Morrie” has been my favorite novel by far of all that I have read and I had expectations of this book belonging to similar line. I kept reading hoping that something good will come up in next page but that never happened. It’s a quick read that can be finished in one day in a stretch of 4 to 5 hours.

I know there has been a huge group of people who have liked the book but nopes, not into my ‘must-read’ book list.

Before the Fall – Review


before-the-fall

This was the book I had picked to read in March (One of the 2016 bestseller). Here is how it went. I don’t know. May be its my research work and my saturated mind. I just wanted something good to read.

First Page – ehh! Bad grammar, repeated words, poor structured sentences etc. Dropped the book for a week or so.

Next 10 pages – Okay. Feels good.

Till around 100 pages – Okay! Interesting. So far so good.

Till around 150 pages – Yawn, yawn and yawn.

300 pages something – Who cares! Done and dusted. I just blame myself. May be its not my type of book. I really could not understand why the genre mentioned for the book is Mystery and Thriller.


I am quite excited for April to read – When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.
