I wondered why would people want to read and re read a book, about a killer virus and so much death, 15 -20 times or every flu season,- until I read it.… Continue reading The Stand By Stephen King

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 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.
