The Picture of Dorian Gray

T

Fewer are the novels which actually take a hold of you and grip your readership till the end. One of those, I came across The Picture of Dorian Grey recently. This novel was written by Oscar Wilde and published in 1890. Too famous as well as notorious, The Picture of Dorian Gray remained the only novel by author Oscar Wilde! Thus, the novel’s fame kept on a constant surge. Even today, the...

LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT Life is What You Make It is a national bestseller written by an Indian author Preeti Shenoy. Yes, the author who has made a name for herself, especially for her romantic novels which portray a different class of romance. However, this time, she came up with something even better than her standards and delivered a motivational sermon (a sort of) through the story of a...

The Girl of My Dreams

T

Like him or hate him, an author that Durjoy Dutta is, you cannot simply ignore him. Like others have their reason to ignore the literature produced by authors like Durjoy, I have a little soft corner for them. Anyone can produce literature and literature of any kind… being a big fan of Durjoy Dutta, I bought this one too, The Girl of My Dreams, as soon as it appeared for sale. When...

The One You Cannot Have by Preeti Shenoy is a wonderful modern day love tale. Preeti, as a writer, is gifted; have no doubts about this! She is a kind of constant love-stories-teller who has been producing novels based on the theme of love. The way she brings out her characters is so real. It leads to a kind of magical impression and you can say that the reader seems to be in the nostalgia of the...

The Mayor of Casterbridge

T

Certainly, you find very few like Thomas Hardy when it comes to the novels in the late twentieth century. His novels are quite moving ones. One of them is The Mayor of Casterbridge. This surely is a masterpiece of Victorian literature! Major themes in the novel are that of remorse and a kind of redemption, if you may say so. Before I read this novel I did not know that character plays such an...

Wuthering Heights

W

Wuthering Heights is not just a book – it’s passion; it’s rage; it’s desire; it’s revenge; it’s love; it’s hatred… it’s what not! Emily Bronte didn’t know perhaps when she had written this book that it’d go on to become immortal and making her an infamous author as well. There are the people who like it and there are also the...
