book review of – Demons in my mind

34349725

Demons in my mind
Demons in my mind is divided into three parts – the murderer, the rapist and the lover. Reading this book was nothing less then a roller – coaster ride as the drama created in the novel is just commendable. The intensity with which the incidents have been described gave me goosebumps. The narration of the events, the writing style, the grip this book has is really amazing. This is one of the best Indian literature work I read so far.
This novel starts with the story of a old man named Dakshesh who is suffering from cancer and want to meet the three monks whom he supposed possess supernatural powers. When he meets them he ask them to heal his dying body and that’s when he comes to know the truth. The monks tell their story him that how they are just ordinary human beings who has dark pasts of their own. They had committed such crimes which no one could even think of. When they meet a girl named Alia, their life completely changed. They became monks only after their encounter with Alia. This part of the book is worth reading when Alia washes away their sins by her purity. If you are a avid reader then you will enjoy this book a lot.
The cover of the book is captivating and attractive. The narration is really good which can bind a reader. The best thing about the book is the unique plot which is hard to be found these days. I was completely hooked to the book when I started reading it. This book provides readers something good and new content and I suggest this book to every reader who is looking for good content.

Book review of – 37+ Grace Marks

37+ Grace Marks

37+ Grace Marks by Vishal Anand is another teenage romantic fiction. It is a light read and can attract young readers who love reading college romance. Well, this is not practically a romance novel as the female protagonist Nimisha keep rejecting the proposal of Viraj and she is also not an important character of the story. This novel revolves around the college life of Viraj and his friends.

Viraj is just an another engineering student who is not so good in studies. He is just passing time in college when this girl Nimisha enters the story and Viraj falls in love with him. They became good friends but when he expressed his love for her she rejects him, not once but twice. Suddenly she disappears from the story and Viraj gets involved with other things like his projects, friends, and fests. Now to make readers remember Nimisha’s character her name is mentioned here and there. At the end of the story, she met with an accident and Viraj saved her and after some time she asks him to meet her. Picture end, the end. This book has nothing more to offer.

The language was simple but the narration was quite boring in some chapters. It was as if the author was trying to stretch the story. But in some places, the story was rushed. The story could have been written in a better way. The title of the story is well chosen according to the story and the cover having a picture of three guys and a girl reading books also matches the theme of the novel.

This book is a one time read and suitable for those who are looking for a light college life story.

book review of – Those 7 days

Those 7 days

Those seven days is the story of a guy who left his city for a job in a big city and after leaving his job what happens to him in just seven days. These seven days turn his life upside down and the girl whom he hated most, his best friend since childhood, Shailja becomes the most important part of his life. This is a light romance but I liked the concept and the way the story is being portrayed.

Small city mamma’s boy Vishwas leaves his comfy life behind when he gets a job in Delhi. Since the moment he stepped out of his house life started playing with him. Each day he experiences something new, some sweet and more bitter, and even ended up in jail. Will the small city boy be able to cope up with the harsh realities of big city life? What will happen when the person whom he hated most will become his dearest and is on verge of dying? Will he be able to get up and fight? All answers lie within the pages.

The cover is a bit childish with the bold use of colors but cute. It has a picture of a boy standing on the skyscraper in a metro city and the girl on the mountain of a small city. It gives a sneak peek at the story and the whole concept. The title is also very appropriate as the story is about what happens to the protagonist in ‘Those seven days’. The book is a light read and one can finish it in a go without losing interest. Yes, the storyline was predictable and led to the loss of interest sometimes. The language used is simple but the narration is quite good and impressive. If you are looking for a light romance then go buy this book without any second thought.

Book review of – Reminiscences of a seeker

Reminiscences of a seeker
When I started reading this book I was constantly thinking that why the hell am I even reading this book. Starting of the book was really boring but after few pages, I wanted to continue it not because it suddenly became interesting but because I wanted to complete it as soon as possible. The plot was gripping but as it contains content of Aghoris and Tantrics it was kind of boring and creepy in some places. You need to have a really strong heart to read those rituals performed by Aghoris.
 This book will be a perfect catch for those people who are in search of some spirituality and energies. The main character of this book is in search of a teacher who can guide him on the right path of spirituality but he was betrayed everytime he trusted his teacher. His teacher turns out to be a traitor when he was completely devoted to him. First, he falls in the darkness of Tantric Rituals by his first master and after that even worse (according to him) into Aughar Vidya. Both of his masters used him for their own benefits. This book is all about these rituals and practices which he performed to acquire some divine powers but in the end, he was left alone and devastated.
The language of the book is easy and simple. This book has many characters which confused me but they were well described. The title of the book is really catchy and it perfectly describes the content inside the book. The book’s cover is all black with a picture of the moon and it looks quite simple and elegant. It could have been better but this cover is also very good and I like it. I will give this book 2.5 stars out of five.

Book review of – Ek Musafir esa bhi

Book review of – Ek Musafir esa bhi

Ek Musafir esa bhi is a biography of Balasaheb Thackeray by Dr. Reena Sinha ‘Anamika’. This book is all about his works, achievements, life – events and how he devoted all of his life in the formation and Shiv Sena. He was a great politician who formed the Shiv Sena, a Hindu right-wing party in Maharashtra and worked really hard for it. This book describes his whole life as a writer and a politician.

Author has tried to narrate the whole chain of events which has affected and shaped the life of Balasaheb Thakrey.
Balasaheb Thakrey was a man with good potential and power. After several years of the division of India and Pakistan he was worried about the condition of Hindu religion people and for that, he formed the political party, Shiv Sena. He has to face many problems in his journey, he was even held responsible for the riots against Muslim but he never felt disappointed. He continued working harder until they won elections. Even after the death of his wife and his elder son. He continued working for the society.

Author has narrated his whole life in a very beautiful manner. Many people can take inspiration from the life of Balasaheb. Author has done a commendable job while writing this novel. She has written some poems in Hindi too which were really appreciable.

The cover of the book was appropriate. The one thing which I don’t like was the use of a language other than Hindi. I think it was marathi and I don’t know that language so it was really difficult for me to skip those paragraphs.

This book is really good for those Hindi readers who are looking for an inspiring story.
