Lone Fox Dancing: My Autobiography

This book is a must for any budding or established author. Not only does it give insights into how he got the plots of many of his stories but also about the struggles of being only an author and trying to make a living out of it.

The Women Who Ruled India

Easily, this is one of the best non-fiction books that I have read in recent times. Not only is this highly recommended but I also hope that our youngsters learn a thing or two about these women to understand that in spite of rampant patriarchy at different times in our history there were many path-breaking people who broke the barriers and overcame rebuke.

Mahashweta

the real beauty of the book lies in the way the protagonist deals with the ups and downs of her own life. When the whole world shuts its doors on her, how she carves out her new identity and sails through life’s storms with her independent thinking and perseverance, is portrayed beautifully.

The Secret Of The Palamu Fort

The book is an engaging, swift read that keeps you riveted till the end (when the mystery unfolds). I recommend this book to anyone who’s mind is titillated by mystery and intrigue. In fact, this book is quite the Bollywood Masala Movie type.

The Red Line

The book is well thought out and executed. The plot has many tendrils, but at no point does it
digress from the main plot. Everything adds to the build-up of the finale.

A Skyful of Balloons

The author has created a literary wonder with her mighty pen. It makes the reader laugh, cry and look for hope along with Preeti, the female protagonist, as she continues her journey from being madly in love with her childhood sweetheart to later looking for hope in her life.

The Reluctant Debutante

The story is about identical twins who share similar looks but whose personalities are starkly different. The so-called troublemaker twin of the two impersonates her a rather saintly counterpart in a “social event”(read: beauty contest) held in France, at the goody-goody sister’s behest.

Everything, Everything

The story touches the hopes, dreams and experiences of a teenager without it being over the top or overly dramatic. And this where this one took my heart away. It is a story that would appeal to any age.

Upheaval

The novel has a beautifully worded idealistic speech on the enigma, that is India, by the main protagonist which is the heart of the novel.

Second Honeymoon

Here comes a book that in its title conveys it all. The Boyd family consisting of a mother, father and three children have been staying together under one roof. As Read More
