Book review-LIFE OF PI BY YAAN MARTEL

This book caught my attention when it won an Oscar. I did my research and found out that it was also a Man Booker Prize winner. This put me off a little bit. All man booker prize winning books are, in my opinion tales of immense sadness and pain and depressing overall. Rarely do they… Continue reading Book review-LIFE OF PI BY YAAN MARTEL

THE HOBBIT BY J.R.R TOLKIEN

Book review- THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK BY MICHAEL CRICHTON

Book review-MANGO PEOPLE IN BANANA REPUBLIC BY VISHAK SHAKTI

I usually do not judge books by their covers but the title and the cover of this one had me very intrigued. The title of the book, which happens to be a very controversial statement made by Robert Vadra in 2012, has been very cleverly used by the author. After reading the book I must… Continue reading Book review-MANGO PEOPLE IN BANANA REPUBLIC BY VISHAK SHAKTI

THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND BY ROBERT LUDLUM

I don’t know why but I always end up picking second hand books when it comes to Rl. There is a certain kind of happiness I get only from reading used books. No kindle or hardcover can come close the smell and comfortable feel of the good old paperbacks . This early 70s spy thriller… Continue reading THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND BY ROBERT LUDLUM
