I also slept with Rashmi Verma – Review

I

Indian English fiction, in recent years, has never been bereaved of erotic fiction. Be it the mainstream version of it or be it the implicit version of it, erotic fiction has been in the market – in this or that form. Recently, an author has published a book with a very expressive and maybe explicit title – I also slept with Rashmi Verma. The readers who have read it have expressed...

Done with Her – Chirasree Bose – Review

D

Quick Tour – “It’s like slipping into a den of secrets without knowing a hoot of it. As a reader, Chirasree Bose takes you into the room of half-slept thoughts until you are finally Done with Her!” Chirasree Bose’s debut novel, a crime mystery and a dark romance as she describes her work, Done With Her, is, in fact, a novella having very few pages. However, the novel...

Janardhan Talbot Vol I – Review

J

Let me be brief in the beginning. Janardhan Talbot by Mohan Timmaraju is a novel that wonderfully takes the readers back to the 19th century when the British were trying to take over Indian states one by one. It is sharp, strongly narrated and written with full conviction. The novelist, in his 80s, did not leave any room for the readers to feel bored. It is engaging; it is fast; it is meant to be...

Greed, Lust, Addiction by Ravi Dabral – Review

G

The novel Greed, Lust, Addiction by Ravi Dabral is a fiction package that delivers things in a proper proportion to the readers without getting them bored or letting them feel a situation of unbalanced circumstances. The characters are more or less realistic. Vijay drives the story far enough and that’s why the introduction of Suraj in a new form becomes easy for the novelist. The theme is...

Mumtaz and Taj Mahal – Review

M

Author Pravin Anand’s book, his third one, Mumtaz and Taj Mahal is a title that’s self-explanatory and we can expect bits of history or a complete historical package. However, perhaps the author knew how to keep his readers guessing and in between, how to deliver a stunning novel with historical facts to a certain extent and degree that it does not become colourless. This skill of...

Elephants in the Room by Suraj Laxminarayanan – Review

E

Suraj Laxminarayanan’s latest (and the debut as well) novel, Elephants in the Room, has left me stunned, puzzled as well as satisfied. I have finished the novel yesterday and I am truly fascinated by the imagination and subtle thinking that the novelist has weighed in in his very first novel. It covers the events of merely four days; however, the details that have been in the focus in his...

American Maharajah by Mark Levy

A

American Maharajah is a 2018 novel written by American author Mark Stephen Levy. Since the publication, the book has been very buzzy among the readers of contemporary fiction as well as those readers who have a keen eye for a class in the contemporary literature. Mark’s work, to be frank, cannot be dumped in the contemporary jargon box because it has the qualities which make a fictional...

Little Maryam by Hamid Baig – review

L

Little Maryam has an exciting start (otherwise) which gives us a rather wrong impression of the personality of the central character, Dr Saadiq Haider. He behaves in a hurried and rough way with the lady, who is a journalist, Anne Miller. Even after she requests, the Nobel Prize winner doctor does not agree to talk to her even off the mic. However, his fear of flying compels Saadiq to agree on a...

Jestus on Rampage – Review

J

The second novel by V. S. Sury, Jestus on Rampage, is a sequel to his first novel Jestus and it further develops the character that he has created in his debut. In this novel, Jestus is introduced to us as a professor at NG University who comes on his first day at the campus on his horseback and sets the scene chaotic. People are amazed because he has letters of recommendations from reputed...

Despite Stolen Dreams – Review

D

Seeds of Terrorism have split all over the land of the heaven on Earth. Kashmir is buzzing high with terrorism. It’s a burning issue everywhere and all the 365 days of a calendar year. Jihad and human bombs and young minds led astray are common in each and every household there (the general view says so). That heavenly part of India is occupied by Satans and devils turning it into a hell...
