Book Review – Runaway Writers by Indu Balachandran

I finished reading this book a week back, but I forgot to write a review. I have been following Speaking Tiger Books, a new yet classy publishing house ever since I attended Chetan Raj Shrestha’s book launch for his new book published by them. The paper quality is excellent, as is the cover. They publish…

Book Review – Promise Me a Million Times by Keshav Aneel

The novel is over. The book has been read. But I still cannot stop myself thinking of the bond Charlie and Aster shared. What wonder of a story that was! Take a bow Keshav Aneel! Brilliant is the only word that comes to my mind. The situations are unbelievably realistic. The dialogues are awesome. The…

Book Review – Vodka, God and Them by Dr. Ashish Sharma

First of all, I would like to express my immense gratitude to the author for not only inviting me to his book launch as one of the chief guests (a great honor which I’ll never forget) but also providing me with a free copy of both of his books. For your information, he has already…

Book Review – Karma Isn’t Such a Bitch by Rashmi Rathi

Book Review – After Dark by Haruki Murakami

This is my second Murakami novel and perhaps the most peculiar novel I’ve ever read. Nevertheless, its really intriguing. This book was gifted to me by my wife on my birthday, so it has that special ring to it. Anyway, the things that stand out in this novel is the language. Its delicious and sticks…

Book Review – The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The only question I was asking myself after I finished reading this book is: Why didn’t I read this masterpiece before? The Kite Runner piqued my interest from the first few pages itself. The language exuded class yet was dipped in an ocean of simplicity. The intricate relationship that Baba, Amir, and Hassan share was…

Book Review – Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

I don’t know what to say about this book. I loved some parts of it, and I despised some parts of it. I had heard a lot about Haruki Murakami and his dark novels, but I refrained from buying it until one of my senior officers in my office suggested it to me. The language…
