Origin by Dan Brown: A Glimpse

I have read two of Dan Brown’s books and loved them both. ‘The Da Vinci Code’ came into my life because of my sister. She wanted me to read the book and narrate it to her. I tried the narration part but I don’t think I did it any justice. Second book was ‘The Lost Symbol’ which was a gift from a friend.

Eleanor and Park

by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor and Park is one of the few talked about books that I have utterly disliked contrary to the popular opinion. According to the blogger who liked the book it was meant to be an epic love saga. It was meant to stir your heart and soul. Sadly, none of this happened.

Zoon

by Selina Sen

It is most unfortunate that I have to DNF this book. Not just because I was really looking forward to reading this book based in kashmir but also because I had received three books from this publisher few months back and I ended up DNFing two and giving a bad review for the third one.

In the Name of God

by Ravi Subramanian

The book In the Name of God is my first from the author. I am not very impressed but not largely disappointed either. Cover page The cover page is like a preamble for any thriller: A man on hunt with some urban background. The book identifies itself by the cover to be a thriller. It is not a great cover but then it does work. So no complains. Characters There are so many! So many... continue reading→
