Greed Lust Addiction – novel by Ravi Dabral – Book Review

G

Greed Lust Addiction is another novel after the one I read by Mohan Timmaraju that made me think. I have been reading novels by contemporary Indian authors for a while now and this has been a common experience – finding every alternate novel, almost, just taking the shape of a un-matterly romantic fiction with a girl and a boy dominating the plot and just nothing else. Ravi Dabral’s...

E

Book Name: Elephants in the Room Author: Suraj Laxminarayanan Publisher: The Write Place Pages: 600 Year: 2018 Genre: Crime fiction Rating: 3.5/5 I have never been a fan of ordinary novels – be it a romance in the simplest terms or a thriller in a plain format.

American Maharajah – book review

A

Mark’s second novel was almost a treat for that category of readers who rather like reading the novels which are little slow in build up and rather simple in nature but mature in theme and sufficient in plot; in short, the readers who don’t appreciate very much the bombardment of emotions heavily pinned upon themselves by the authors who like to arouse the sentiments this way… American Maharajah...

Crime and Punishment – book review

C

Raskolnikov is the embodiment of sin and redemption together in the novel Crime and Punishment by the great Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky. Moreover, if anyone wants to ascribe more to the character, he can well be seen as the living example of a chaotic psyche who almost goes bizarre as the novel deepens. Crime and Punishment is one of the finest novels ever produced by an author from any...

One Indian Girl – book review

O

One Indian Girl is a 2016 novel and thankfully the last novel by Chetan Bhagat, at least for now! This is nothing sort of an Indian version of mini El James kind of sexual excursion taken by the protagonist Radhika Mehta who remembers nothing else about her feministic rights but just having sex and having worked for big companies and having a lot of money. Well, Chetan Bhagat might have talked to...
