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

J.R.R.Tolkien

THE HOBBIT BY J.R.R TOLKIEN

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

Robert Ludlum

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.

STUFF ON THE BACK COVER SAYS Meet… Continue reading Book Review – THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK BY MATTHEW QUICK
