With You; Without You by Prabhat Ranjan – review

W

How good a debut novel can be? The speculations often end within the perimeter of English literature because seldom we have the time to think about literature in other regional languages because we don’t even think about the works of Hindi literature. The prejudiced English elites would certainly not love the challenge that the Hindi authors and the widening reading audience of the Hindi language...

Sita: Warrior of Mithila

Amish, the author of widely successful Meluha trilogy, has not followed the typical feminist pattern while writing this work (Sita: The Warrior of Mithila). But he has been a feminist in a way that he rescued the women in the story of the pettiness of womanly jealousy. He has made an effort to empower the villainous character also giving them a considerable motive. His female characters, be it...

The Quest of the Sparrows

The Quest of the Sparrows is a novel which offers many interpretations for many people. It does not limit itself to a certain and fixed interpretation and which, no doubt, is the real power and beauty of this novel.

Right Here Right Now

Have you ever thought of it that if we lose our memory how will we survive? We won’t get to know who was true to us and who is acting fake. Who might try to take advantage of our illness and whom we can trust? Something like this takes place in the novel of Nikita Singh – Right Here Right Now. I have gone through this novel and today, I will be sharing what I found and what I liked...

A Walk to Remember

A

Nicholas Sparks is a modern master of fateful love stories and road-not-taken fables written in uncluttered prose. A Walk to Remember is perfect autumn fiction when thoughts turn to changes and life’s journeys, both mapped and unmapped.This novel is a bit of twisted take on your average romance novel. Instead of the good girl falling for the bad boy, it’s more of the other way round...

Harry Potter and the creator of his world, J K Rowling, both have been very famous since the time the series first appeared. There are people in a large number who have been the readers of Harry Potter works and I am also one of them. There is something amazing about these books – you don’t have to find something ‘literary’ in those – buy the book – read it...

Accidentally in Love

Accidentally in Love by Nikita Singh is a romance based novel, mark my words! Why I said romance based is due to the fact that there is nothing in the novel apart from romance. Perfect girls falling for perfect boys and vice versa is the basic framework on which the pages of this novel are painted. There is no scope of imperfection anywhere. There only they keep complicating their love lives...
