Wonder where to start about this playwright and what to offer to justify the true shades of life. After all everything down to how well the living was and the difference it made to serve some purpose. Well, It is about Ekdal ideology that required its countenance and account of his existence which was challenged, tested and dusted by his idealist friend Gregers Werle, who enters his home to tarnish the lie that embroiled within the Ekdal family. Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

The story is based on an author ‘John Rothstein’ who has a enumerable fans worldwide. What happens when an addictive reader step in and change the fate of the author’s life? How far the fan would go? I liked the cop portions where the story gets intriguing and learned the reader’s mindset from this novel.

Will I get a chance to meet up this favorite author in the near future? It is a Herculean task to furnish thriller plots with rationale details which the author Keigo Higashino has mastered by every book of his release. One may find the plots since his ‘The devotion of suspect x’ to be cordial with culture and modern aspects of life and I truly believe that this is his style at its best. Well, coming to this story which is about making the perpetrator to admit his scandalous act that carries two different homicide case and finding the killer who has taken his life. Although sounds like an open shut case but the execution process is what steals the show. What happens when you bring the physicist Yukawa’s help to solve the mystery must be read to get the stimulating effects. I am counting on his next offer the soonest the merrier.

Mythology based stories are the new trends for quite a while now. This book is the second installment from the “The Pataala Prophecy” series by the author. Why do I get the feel that this book is more about the other protagonist Maya than Arjun? Because her character alone is spoken at length and makes it quite rambunctious! The rest of the characters like Raman Kapoor, Vishwaraj and Shukra leaves theirs imprint and room for curiosities. The visual representation of tapovan was similar to Gandalf accompaniment with Frodo in “Lord of the rings”. This novel is surpassed with a hope that at least the third installment surprises me with thorough characterization coverage.

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!

I chose this book randomly without knowing that this is part of the series. So may be this could be the reason for giving three star rating!? This story is about hunting the perpetrator who is responsible for the killings of wealthy elders who resides on the assisting living home. He has a partner in crime who works as his sex mate and the nurse in the facility. How nameless nabs them is the nutshell of the story. I do normally like the Dean Koontz style but this did not stir any impressions and wonder if I had read the prior parts then how could’ve made a difference? So, the work is not that bad but could’ve been more gripping is my opinion.

I find Chetan Bhagat has toned his writings from romantic novels to mystery genre which hints that he is widening his skill set or maybe its just my view. Coming to this story, it is a routine fare of finding a missing girl and how the detective traces forms the crux of this case. Well, the pace was good, but the relationship between the detective and the victim’s mother was dramatic and full of Chetan’s romantic strokes. The ending wasn’t pleasing enough for the perpetrator character and lacks the desirable punch and validity to justice and felt flattened! Otherwise, the book is a nice time pass for the hobbyists.

This is a cobweb of stories narrated with a tight screenplay. At the start the characters of Daniel, Tim laid out like a biography, which slowly drags into the vacuum of another story line and so on. The part of Sergei character introducing the actual protagonist Irena Sertorian of a dystopian world in the middle portions of this novel is worth a standing ovation. The only place I felt a bit dragging were when Irena meet her replica Rosa and the details of the apparatus. In fact, it resembled like how the Cooper character gets discovered at the end of the Interstellar movie. Overall a story to check oneself in the shoes of Irena territory and her visions.

I admire Ashwin Sanghi books for its mythological inputs and the content alone speaks volumes of fictionalized facts. But coming to this book, the author had tried to present a dystopian look that jerked up hastily at the end. That’s because the character gets too slime and nothing much to offer. I wonder if the story was done as a prelude as the total pages sits on 38! The explanation of five dimensional space feeds the scientific minds and serve as food for thought. Hope it had many such wisdom and the length was decent enough to cut for a short story! Kind of disappointed with the size.

As the title suggests it is a manifesto presenting the art of staying lonely and combating hardships of leading the life. It isn’t a space, fictional romance flick rather surprises you with unexpected twists and turns. The names of spaceship “Infinity” and “Eternity” deserves special mention as it provokes to question ones conscience. I feel the Romy character to be abundant while the other characters do justice as imparted. Truly gripping and highly addictive imho.
