This book explains the true meaning of an actual companionship. How a wanderer finds the solace in a street cat is the nutshell of this story. It sounds more like a memoir of the author than a series of events surrounding the cat. This story is so provocative and may influence to adopt a pet sooner..

I am reading this author’s book from the “Mahabharata series” apparently this one is no different. The author knows how to keep the narrative engaging by adapting the characters from the Hindu mythology.

There is a huge resemblance between this story and Harry Potter series. For instance, Gurukul is a replica of Hogwarts school and the groups in it such as sadhs, nagas, sangha and asuras are like mud blood, half blood, order of the phoenix and death eaters! Although the story enacted differently, most of it settles in the similar trends. Amusingly, I find it entertaining for adapting the Indian historical facts. As a first installment this book invokes the interest and provokes for the second offerings!

The only graphical stories have read were tinkle series, Debbie Tung’s and now Sarah’s world of illustrations. This third installment talk about the growing internet trolls against the creative people. As a small time jewel designer it is so painstaking to present the work and embrace the critique. Moreover, the amount of time spent on online publishing squeeze in, on top reading of uninvited glitches pierce the faintest heart. Just imagine the outbursts of the current creative artists and their sufferings are unspoken off! Sarah does a fine job of revealing the shades buried underneath and pat on myself as a contributor of such demanding work.

Just finished reading this book by Fredrick Backman. This story deserves a pat for the presentation of weaving the fairy tale into the main plot. I liked Elsa’s questionnaires, It was so inquisitive. At places I found the resemblance of “P.S. I Love you” story structure catering to younger audience. A nice standalone book with some morals thrown in there.

I am a big fan of Perumal Murugan books since the time of ‘Poonachi’ and this is no different from his routine outpourings. If you like some short stories than you are good with this one and be ready for the 10 tiny tales that the author had embarked. Each story is filled with country side verbiage with ample of culture and rich heritage. Wonder if the author has liberal core beliefs or disregard of the aristocratic rules. Whatever may be the reason the author has a way to offer his insights in a layman manner which is highly appreciable. The four strokes of luck is not by a hidden fortune rather backs it up by sincere efforts. Simply go for it.

This book isn’t for the trans-phobia and foolish to be naive about it! I just didn’t know what to expect, but curiousness made me to sneak this 6th Cormoran Strike fare. Well, I don’t want to opine the story synopsis that many have already detailed. But I find Rowling scores better in this screenplay and the way characters are laid down will keep the mind engaging and curtailed. Guessing the culprit poses a big challenge as most of them had something to hold onto and further pulls the draconian focus towards the story line. Totally immersive and pulsating in my opinion.

Have you read a book with no words, perhaps just illustrations to back up the entire context? Well, this book is just that and it baffles me of its execution, which is unique in medium of representation. It is a story of immigrants and their struggles to mitigate refugee tag at least this is how I concur. Shaun made it appealing by its fine details and structured brilliantly to be precise. It is a must read to taste the life of a migrant do not hesitate to welcome a stranger on an unfamiliar territory.
