Book Review: Never Say Never, by Anjali Kirpalani

With 2014 around the corner, quite a few of us I’m sure are thinking about resolutions for the New Year. Not that we live up to every resolution we take, but it feels like tradition now doesn’t it? Now that I think of it, maybe another part of tradition is to break resolutions. More often than not, that works out in our favor, doesn’t it?

Book Review: Seeking Redemption, by Madhu Vajpayee

They say it takes just one visionary to see a change oriented towards the good and make it happen. If many such visionaries were there, then the country would develop. Aravind Adiga’s The White Tiger, which I read recently, spoke of many facets of our country that needed fixing. And today, a book that I started reading as a romance fiction actually turned out to be more of a contemplative, detailed look at some more things that need fixing.

Book Review: Carry On Jeeves, by P. G. Wodehouse

I sometimes wonder which author is the best to read in a particular genre. Though there are many authors in fantasy genre, no one feels quite as good as Rowling and Harry Potter. For thrillers, I seek a Lee Child more often than not, because it’s the unruly Jack Reacher that makes thrill feel alive. For humor, there is only one author that comes to mind, and that’s P. G. Wodehouse. The character… why, Jeeves of course! Continue reading “Book Review: Carry On Jeeves, by P. G. Wodehouse”

Book Review: Age of Hiblisk, by Sumukh Naik

Ah. Another day, another book and another place to visit through its words. The book is a fantasy. When I open it, I expect magical lands and spiritual worlds concocted by the creative, imaginative mind of the author. A fantasy has to have that narrative charm to hold my attention and keep me glued to the book, wondering what materializes on the next page. This book promises just such a world… worlds, rather.
