Nora’s Sun


Have you ever read a book and felt, if only there was a little more to it? I must admit, Mel (M.S. Fowle), is one of those writers who knows how to say a lot in a very few words, making you ask for more. Yes, Nora’s Sun does not take more than an hour to read but it definitely leaves an impact.

What would you do if the person whom you love the most is taken away from you? True, that’s not even a question to be asked. The strength that begins to flow within you tends to leave you surprised too. And you turn into whatever the situation demands out of you.

I never knew it was you


By the time you reach the middle of the book, quite contrary to the title, you will say “I definitely knew it was you” .

The plot begins with our protagonist Sita bumping into her school friend Anais, at the airport. She wouldn’t have recognised her friend if Anais herself didn’t call out to her. The drastic change in her, overall, was overwhelming.

One night at the Call Center


Well, if what Chetan Bhagat claims is right, then during his train journey, a young lady promised to tell him this story only if he promised to turn it into a book!! (Unless, of course, he was just looking for someone to blame it on 😛 ). Listen to stories- good, and sometimes interesting. But promise to turn into a book, and then actually keep the promise… hmmm!!! Moving on….

Stupid Guy goes to India


Two things that I did not expect when the book came in – 1. A book with illustrations (more like reading a comic) 2. Right-to-left reading.

The book is Yukichi Yamamatsu’s real experience of travelling to India, out of his comforts in Japan. Yukichi was unemployed and running short on money when he thought he needs to sell Manga in a country where its not sold before. A few inquiries with embassies of different countries and he’s in India.
