I want to adopt more self help genre this year and found this book under iBooks free collection. And here I am trying to bring into right words that are easy to understand. This book is about the definition of peace which as per the author is found internally by every person contradictory to the belief of tracing it outside. Also, it is a clever trap to get drawn within the pool of suppressed emotion and thoughts, when letting go is where the true peace is hidden. Here is the excerpt from this book that I truly adore “Peace is not something that you achieve but rather that you become as a result of letting go of all that is not real you. You don’t need to force your mind into quietude. All you really need to do is stop giving so much attention to your thoughts and start giving more attention to what is directly in front of you at each given moment. Choose reality over the illusions in your mind”. What bowled me was to discover huge resemblance to Indian philosophy especially Advaita Vedanta. Loved it to the core for imparting the necessary life skills and the concepts were to the point. It is a tiny book full of wisdom so do not miss it.

In the list of several classics reads this too joins as rightly deserved for its suspense imbibed storytelling and gothic style infrastructure. It is unheard to present the mysterious character at the start and building the story thereafter shows the development of thrilling effects while focus is retained on the tensions around them. It must be daunting to articulate such expectations which are unique in those times and wonder how this was drafted to accommodate the ideas of the author. If this wasn’t enough the love was briefed with at most care without any lengthy pretence dialogues. This proves how much research would have been gone to arrive on the scene and the plight of reader satisfaction. I am thankful to have read this book and gives me an opportunity to share my lingering thoughts and views with the fellow readers. I hope this was insightful and informative.

This will be the first Russian literature book I’ve read and find it lucky to have fallen in love with the narration by the author. The subject of death is a taboo and abhor for many people who rubs off its occurrence as a negative effect. And to have someone talk about it gives a sense of bravery that is appreciable. If combined with a sickness alarms the faint heart thus pushing away from a happenstance that is bleak to even consider. But with Tolstoy character Ivan, the actual moments of suffering, sadness and rejection are conveyed with at most precision. It screams of agony, oppression and despair that anybody could relate to however, I find that Ivan’s acceptance of death to be less potent and feel sorry for the wife character. Never is it easy to be with a sick person when the demands are persistently and emotionally drained. While it is hard to witness such things, remaining characters play their part as promised. Hence, a tale that will make you think, feel and act vividly.

I have read a handful of poems that are imaginative, credible or impressive which apparently is taking a back seat now. This book scores a ton on this end while allowing the readers interpretation to run its vivid course. Some categories carry a deep sense of forbearance, intimacy and personal stance that are gaslighted by this author or maybe it’s just my opinion. Otherwise was insightful to go through the whole sections of poetry which are a treat to the fanatics. Hope my review was helpful to persuade enough to try this out. If so drop your view for a healthy discussion.

Well, it is a relief to find an assuring story about aspects of social norms in the aristocratic universe. The explanations are defined with acuity and the nuance supporting the life of an upper middle class family is captivating and mindful. I was worried to get into the usual class indifference perhaps relieved by the contradictory happenings. Moreover the relationships of Ellen and Archer is presented in less lustful details with subtle proceeding which is commendable and unforeseen. This further demonstrates how romanticism can be looked upon which unfortunately isn’t the case in today’s modern society. When I started to read was expecting the sentimental elements leading towards the sad ending thankfully that’s not how it travels. By this you all must wondered the summary of this book? In bribing to pick this book as the next read and also gives me a healthy perspective of what you all think of it. I will reserve this spot especially for your views.

I wonder the purpose of graphical books and its relevance in the choice of medium for the readers. In fact many are initiated to depict illustrations to pictorial admirers, but find it on limited genres why is it the case so? Well this tale is about the intimate relationship between the awakened mummy and the professor’s daughter if this is intriguing then read it to know further. Apart from the mystery around the mummy nothing else is holding the interest also dulls the story progression. Certain portions where the mummy’s father presence evokes laughter than genuine emotions which otherwise prove juvenile. In short, efforts of the author must be commendable to create a graphical book and wish better luck with the future endeavors.

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.

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.
