Page 410- "The kind of a book that you want to finish but you also want to read slowly" I finished reading The Book Thief yesterday. Now imagine, completing a book like this when you are in public and that too in an almost overcrowded metro. A wrong decision there but I had to complete those… Continue reading A book you want to finish
Yesterday I completed this book by Agatha Christie called "And then there were none". I'm not going to review it but I'll write down my personal thoughts about this novel.I liked the story,it was amazing and hard to put down without knowing and anticipating what would happen next but I was a little disappointed in the… Continue reading Book – And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Started this book with great expectations and with hope of reading something amazing.I assure you that most of the expectations were met.Here is my little overview of the book from Goodreads. I haven't read much classics,so bear with me if I miss a thing or two.This indeed a page turner and took me on an… Continue reading The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins(Book Overview)
The Stone Monkey by Jeffery Deaver This isn't a review but a quick follow up,purely based on personal views.I selected this book because it was in Select Editions by Reader's Digest,although the first on the list was Step Ball Change by Jeanne Ray but I wasn't in the mood of a romantic story so skipped… Continue reading The Stone Monkey by Jeffery Deaver

The more I read the more I realize that I have absolutely no talent for writing but here I am trying my hand at it.Let's see where I end up.I cannot write good and that means that I can't take people where I want to take them through language,literature. I've been reading lately and realized that I need to read even more and I need to write even more frequently which I don't really do.Here is what I am going to do,i’ll list some books I recently read and they are in the latest order-The Unhandsome Prince by John Moore- I completed this book yesterday and I liked it because it was written in a very casual and friendly way,now this is just my view on it but yes the book was a great break from the normal world,and I say this because it has some business with magic stuff and people changing into frogs,I believe you should read this book if you get a chance.It has a light humor to it too.The Reader by Bernhard Schlink- I read this a week ago and also did a small review on it which was also my first book review ever,I hope you found it good.This book was completely different from "The unhandsome prince",this was about a young boy getting into a strange relationship with a lady much older than him and it was a page turner I remember saying this in my review.This book explored more serious topics like that of world war and holocaust.It was a great read and one should give it a try before the decision of watching the movie based on this novel is made.3.A walk in the woods by Bill Bryson- If you are a nature lover,animal lover or even an adventurer than you can absolutely consider reading this great book.Two guys come together and decide to go on trekking and the book covers everything right from the preparation for the trekking till the completion.I should add that it might inspire some readers to even go on a hike/adventure,I myself had this great urge to just pack my bag and go out and explore the wilderness or say the world.This book is a great journey and is sure to make you think about going on an adventure.Suggested for people who like and love nature,animals and adventure.So these were the latest 3 books I read and they were great and all from different genre and they all somehow made me realized that I need to work hard really hard if I want to write great and connect with people.After much reading and writing I someday maybe able to write a great article,a great book,poem?The book I am now going to read is Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell,if you’ve read this book then do tell me your views about it.Plus if you(the reader) has read any of the three books I mentioned earlier then feel free to share your thoughts with me and suggest me something good to read.And comment is compulsory for those who want to be writers one day,I just want to know on what level they are.
The Readerby Bernhard SchlinkI completed this book around 15 minutes back and I really liked it.I'll try and write a small review and spare me for any mistakes I might make because it's my first time reviewing a book.A friend of mine recommended the movie and I planned to see it but simply couldn't and… Continue reading Book Review – The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
