The long-winding steps to Mount Olympus were a punishment in themselves. I trudged over the fat-burning-travesty to ‘meet’ Zeus while lugging my bow and quiver
Can my review justify the awesomeness of the book I have read? Or will it fall short?
Khushboo Shah’s book, The Fairly Ordinary Princess, is one such book. A book that breaks the glass ceiling when it comes to children fiction that works for adults too.
The Counterfeiter: Abdul Karim Telgi & The Stamp Scam is definitely an eye-opener of a book especially when it does something in reverse – puts in words what we all of us watched on the television.
The plot is very engaging and has got its hooks in me and when I finished the book, I automatically gravitated towards the second. The language, sentence structure, etc. used by Harshali is top-class and I didn’t find anything specific to mar my reading experience. Her words bring out the visual imagery of the mansion, how royal it must have been, and the joys and sorrows it must have seen and maybe, experienced.
I closed my eyes and let the book’s waves wash over me. A lot of feelings, thoughts arose in my mind and the invariable comparison to one’s life. What would I have done in similar situations?
