I do not wish to repeat the story line, which many would have shared its details and views, but to me the exercises at the end of the each section keeps it attentive and entertained. Activity driven texts gives a sense of measuring the comprehension skills which keeps the assimilation in check. When you get the answers right will indeed raise the confidence, but all pays well with the appropriate layouts, language and questionnaires combined together can bring the effectiveness in learning. I find this book meets all the above requirements and delivers its best. Not to forget the thriller elements it offers so stay put and happy reading.

This book is not a memoir of Machiavelli life, but covers his political views, liberal beliefs and his reasons to why Italy failed to progress in terms of personal greed. His comparison with Roman empire draws a conclusion on how religious institutions have played to promote their civic culture and suggests to implement the same strategy on Italian socialism. Why do I find Machiavelli’s fancies the constitution of Rome instead, whereas minimal with the barbarians in Italy? Historical facts are argued enough, apparently one sided so it is hard to conclude but good to hear their thoughts.

I have read a few of graphical books in the past but this is the first time to explore on science fiction end. The Utopian world of ozone effects are illustrated with hilarious names, the background nuances are projected with firm acuity. A story of a newly arrived couple in the Utopian world and its harsh climate is captured to deliver the intended message of global warming. Writings such as “Ain’t no city like generosity” and “Shit house” ad board on the camper muses the story development. Thought seeding and recommended read. Let me know what do you think.

A story of childhood hobby turned into a professional career and the outcome of such a decision is illustrated with easy relatable sketches. I am under the graphics novella spell and today’s pick was aptly chosen for its title alone nothing else mattered at that moment. If you ask me if it’s worth it, then yes, it did with big heart. The life of the cartoonist is represented as natural as possible to share the everyday turmoils and highlights the crippling impact that could fathom on the self portrait. The main character’s despondent efforts to connect with other people alarms the reason for such solidarity confinement. My expression lacks to convey the true meaning that one might attain from this book perhaps better to leave the room for competent and deserved readers.

Oscar Wilde’s quotes of various books are encapsulated onto a single book that gives us an easy read of his witty works under one roof. Every quote has layers of generosity, artistic endeavors, voids and inspiring grace to pique the reader’s interest. The different topics are nicely rooted with poetic thoughts favoring humorous views and justifies why his works are highly regarded by people of every age. And today had the opportunity to discover about Oscar Wilde, but shame not to have read his works, anyways, this review paves to scout and serves this purpose at the earliest. There are many quotes referenced, but this one strikes the chord – “There is always more books than brains in an aristocracy”. Well, What are your views on Oscar Wilde thoughts? If you have any drop in the comments happy to reflect.

What is happiness in the realm of mathematical equations and where to configure the buried analogy which is entangled between the web of real and unreal perceptions. Well, this is all lodged in here with spectacle views. Not many are entitled to accuse life as losing battleground, particularly when catered to complex conjectures filled with negative connotations. Same applies for any erudite to dismiss the existence ideology, but what stays apart is the way author bridges language syntax, rationale and the philosophical concepts to justify his statements. This is what steals the show, at least to me it did with rain of words at the appropriate places. This statement is thought provoking- “Instant enlightenment after all is another fantasy born out of laziness and hope”. Appreciate viewers input on this and happy to contemplate.

With the sense of anticipation created by the quality of author’s previous works, The title made me to sneak into this book and got sucked into Haruki’s fantasy world with a minimum characters to keep it light and lively. This story is about a boy who ends up in a nightmarish library where hidden rooms appear to be a labyrinth sorts with spooky environment. Here comes the few characters such as the sheep man, a mysterious girl and a starling pet to accommodate the required foundation for the story construction. How the boy escape is presented with dark humor and that’s how I visualize it. Being a short story adds up to complete the reading goals that one may have or signed up for. So nothing to complain about and hence recommend this book for the coffee table reads for its size alone.

No wonder this author’s books are compelling, intriguing and captivating since its inception state. His criminal psychology background is evident and provides the required detailing of crime props, surroundings and as well as the set ups. The writing format was effortless and the chilling effect is over the roof which is also a reason to be a top notch thriller. With the pace this fast provokes to complete on a single seating. What happens when a killer executes a crime sending waves of shock to those who witness it and cops ending up nowhere in terms of nabbing the perpetrator. If this stirs your curiosity, then grab it to know the answers.

The author has instilled what she wanted to convey through the medium of poems. A poem in which heroism is replaced with pseudo romantic masquerades. It is an attempt to a conscious deliverance of living beyond the poetic representation. Her poem is not a propaganda symposium as it is led to be believed rather buried in motto in the imaginations of its presentation only to be awoken by the depth of unimaginable experience. Well, the author is of Russian origin whose visionary, fusion of literal precision, parables have quenched my crawling thirst for literature. This work has hammered everlasting impression to me.

I find the Iranian poetess to be clumsy of having a composure instead desirous in satisfying her inner demons. First have to thank the translator for the effort of capturing the convincing outlook since many fail to bring the true essence of original book. Each verse reflects the wavering perturbed of sexuality, including the perils of sin, divinity and addiction. This line is echoing in my mind and admit its recklessness – “Tired of being a prude, I’d seek Satan’s bed at midnight and find refuge in the declivity of breaking laws. I’d happily exchange the golden crown of divinity for the dark, aching embrace of a sin”. What I find appalling is the phrasing attempts during the post shah era and the scandals of her polygamy affairs. So give it a go and sneak in to know the hype behind this poetess.
