81IXuw6DrGL

 

Name – Seductive Affairs

Genre- Romance

Author- Risabh puri

Publisher- shristi publishers

year of publication- 2018

Hello, everyone so this was the second book by risabh puri that i read and i am writing this to let you all know  about my views on this book and a bit of its plot… ofcourse without spoilers.

so let’s start-

this is a story of “prisha” who is very serious about her career, she is in love with someone but just before her marriage, she is made to choose between a career or love. she choses her career but is left heartbroken.

“Rajesh” is a very reputed journalist in a very reputed newspaper, where prisha joins.

both rajesh and prisha are assigned a job to cover a business confrence together, what prisha is unaware of is… a big scam is going on under the covers of this confrence and rajesh has decided to reveal it..

during this same assignment prisha and rajesh get too connected to each other(against the company law).

will they be able to reveal the scam going on? will they be able to save their job? will there love survive? the answer to these questions make the story.

i liked the book mainly because the story is really simple, the language used is easy to comprehend. being a light read it definately relaxes you before you pick up another intense read.

few things did bother me though-

1. prisha is a very career oriented girl but once she realise her love for rajesh she is ready to let go of her career…. this is quiet difficult for me to understand.

2. there is a detailed description of their intimate moments towards the end.. i believe this could have been shortened a bit.. ( i know not everyone will have a problem with this but i have)

so, i will say this is a one time read. you can go ahead and read this if you are in for a light read, where you do not get too much involved…

this was an average read for me.

3.5/5.

Have a good day.

FLYING WITHOUT WINGS- RISABH PURI (BOOK REVIEW)

This was the 9th book that i read this year, after reading two thrillers one after the other i was in a mood to change the genre.

and at this time the author of this book sent me a review copy of this for which he wanted an honest review, i was more than glad to read this as i wanted to read something out of the thriller genre.

and i was not at all wrong by deciding to pick this book up. i loved reading it so much that i finished it in two days.

Name: Keepers of the Kalachakra

Genre: Thriller (sci-fi)

Author- Ashwin Sanghi

Publisher- westland publications.

Year of Publication- 2018

“Keepers of the kalachakra” is a 2018 release and has recieved highly positive reviews.

i was so excited to read this and i finally read it this month.

this is a book of the “thriller” genre which can be further classified into “sci-fi”, with a touch of “history”.

the story’s plot…..

some head of states are being killed- their selection being random- there murderers are so efficient that they leave no clue that can trace them.

but are these murders really “RANDOM”. – NO……

now the onus to stop these deadly assasinations is on IG4, a group of four countries- India-china-russia-usa. so, are they succesful in their mission. To know you will have to read the book. i will not spoil the fun.

but yes, the purpose behind these murders is very scary. these can lead the humanity to a war of complete destruction. can this destruction be stopped?

the story takes you to different parts of the globe from uttrakhand to lanka to nalanda , from syria to russia and others. all this when you are in the comforts of your home. and believe me you will enjoy this trip along with the thrills it brings.,

just like an ideal thriller the excitement keeps growing after the change of each page.

two points that i will like to mention though-

  1. it could have ended early. i felt it a bit extended.
  2. the science was a bit too much for me to get hold of… yes, the thrill made up for it but yet….

all the characters in the book are beautifully created and have an equal impact on the story.

also, my favourite part in the novel is the concept of “quantum twins”.- what are these- how is it related to the story- what is kalchakra- what is its role in the story?

to know the answers to these questions you should read the book and believe me you will not be disappointed.

i loved the book a lot. an unputdownable book. i will definitely recommend it to you if you are a fan of thrillers.

also, there is a very important message at the end of the book.

hope you will like the book.

your views and comments are welcome.

so, bye, for now. i will try and post another review as soon as i read my next.

happy reading.

THE ROZABAL LINE

SO THIS WAS THE SEVENTH BOOK THAT I COMPLETED THIS YEAR. THIS IS A THEOLOGICAL FICTION BOOK. WHICH IS THE FIRST BOOK OF A SERIES OF STANDALONES CALLED “BHARAT SERIES” BY ASHWIN SANGHI.

NAME: THE ROZABAL LINE

AUTHOR: ASHWIN SANGHI

GENRE: THEOLOGICAL THRILLER

PUBLICATION: WESTLAND PUBLICATION

MY RATINGS: 3.7/5

51wR20EdhLL._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

THIS THEOLOGICAL THRILLER, DISCUSSES THE POSSIBILITY OF JESUS SURVIVING THE CRUCIFICATION AND SPENDING THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN INDIA, AND ALSO HIS DYNASTY’S PRESENT STORY. THAT IS THE REASON BEHIND THE TITLE BEING “THE ROZABAL LINE”.

IN THIS STORY THERE IS A ASSASIN WHO IS ON A KILLING SPREE OF THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE IDEOLOGIES OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ARE IN SEARCH OF THE ACTUAL TRUTH.

THERE IS AN ARMY OF 13 DEADLY TERRORISTS WHO ARE PLANNING SOMETHING REALLY FATAL.

THERE IS A HINDU ASTROLOGER WHO SPOTS APPROACHING DISASTER.

THERE IS AN AMERICAN PRIEST WHO HAS DISTURBING VISIONS OF HIS OTHER LIFES.

NOW, AS FOR HOW ALL THESE ARE CONNECTED, TO THE STORY OF JESUS SURVIVING THE CRUCIFICATION, OF HIM COMING TO INDIA AND LIVING THE REST OF HIS LIFE HERE AND OF HIS DYNASTY , YOU WILL HAVE TO READ THE STORY.

SO I PICKED THIS BOOK IN THE EXPECTATION OF A GREAT THRILLER THAT WILL ENTERTAIN ME. WHEN I STATRTED READING IT I FELT THE STORY TOOK OF A REALLY NICE WAY A THRILLER DOES AND I WAS EXCITED. BUT AS I KEPT READING IT I KEPT LOSING INTEREST. WHICH ULTIMATELY CAME BACK TOWARDS THE END. YES, I DID LIKE THE BOOK IN THE BEGINING AND THE CONCLUSION.

THE REASON THAT I BELIEVE, BEHIND, ME NOT ENJOYING THIS AS MUCH AS I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO, WILL BE MY LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF CHRISTINITY AND FACTS RELATED TO IT. BUT YES THE THRILL FACTOR IS THERE AND YOU WILL ENJOY THIS IF YOU HAVE A BIT OF MORE KNOWLEDGE THEN ME IN CHRISTIANITY.

IF YOU LOVE THEOLOGICAL THRILLERS, IF YOU HAVE READ DAN BROWN’S BOOK AND HAVE LOVED IT YOU SHOULD TRY THIS TOO. I BELIEVE YOU WILL LIKE IT.

DO KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A MIXTURE OF FACTS AND FICTION. IT IS UPTO YOU TO BELIEVE WHICH IS WHAT.

GO AHEAD READ IT AND TELL ME WHAT DO YOU THINK.

ALSO,

1.  THIS BOOK WAS FIRST PUBLISHED BY LULU PRESS INC. IN 2007 IN THE U.S.A

2. THIS BOOK WAS PUBLISHED UNDER THE AUTHOR NAME “SHAWN HAIGINS” WHICH IS AN ANAGRAM OF ASHWIN SANGHI.

YOU WILL FIND QUIET A LOT OF ANAGRAMS IN THIS BOOK.

SO THATS ALL I HAVE FOR NOW, I WILL BE BACK ONCE I HAVE READ THE NEXT BOOK WHICH IS GOING TO BE EITHER “CHANAKYA’S CHANT” OR “THE KRISHNA KEY”

TILL THEN BYE.

YOUR IDEAS, COMMENTS AND QUERIES ARE MOST WELCOME.

So, i am back with another review and this book was recommended by a friend and a fellow reader. i am so glad that i picked this book. this has that old feeling of love and sacrifice which is rare today.

this was the sixth book that i finished this year. i loved it completly. also i would like to tell you that this is a book in hindi.

this book tells you the story of “sudha” and “chander” of their love and their separation. the story also features some other really strong characters who will not let you feel that they are not important. the characters are beautifully woven. you will love all the characters equally.

this book will make you laugh in the first part with the friendly arguments of the two lead characters and will make you cry your heart out towards the end and at the end.

i think it is one of the best books in hindi that i have read till now. and i am not comparing this with premchand and sharatchandra.

there are a very few fictional work that i get attached to, to make me shed tears but this deed.

the level of hindi used in this book is really good and you should be comfortable with advanced hindi language if you want to enjoy this.

for all those who are comfortable reading hindi this is a must read.

pick this up if you want to feel love at its purest and if you want to see how heartbreaking it is to not be able to be with it forever.

thank you, i will return with another review very soon.

My plans for may 2018

SO, I WAS ABSENT FROM THIS BLOG FOR MORE THAN ONE MONTH NOW. BUT I AM BACK AND I WILL BE READING A LOT OF BOOKS THIS MONTH. THUS THE REVIEWS WILL FOLLOW.

I HAVE ALREADY STARTED TWO BOOKS

2. GUNAHO KA DEVTA- DHARMVEER BHARTI.

THE FIRST ONE IS INDIA’S HIGHEST SELLING THEOLOGICAL FICTION AND THE SECOND ONE IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR HINDI FICTION.

AT PRESENT I HAVE READ ALMOST 35% OF BOTH AND I AM LOVING THEM BOTH. WILL BE REVIEWING IT HERE AS SOON AS I FINISH THESE.

YOUR VIEWS REGARDING WHAT SHOULD I READ NEXT ARE MOST WELCOME AND HOPE WE REMAIN CONNECTED AGAIN.

THANK YOU

ARTHALA- VIVEK KUMAR (BOOK REVIEW)

HELLO, FRIENDS SO THIS WAS MY SECOND READ OF MARCH 2018. AND I HAVE LOVED THIS COMPLETELY. I WILL TELL YOU WHY…..

download

NAME: Arthala

GENRE: Fantasy

AUTHOR: Vivek Kumar

PUBLISHER: Hind yugm

YEAR OF PUBLICATION: 2016

So, for those of you who do not know, i am a big fan of fantasy and mythological fictions. i have been reading books of this genre in english language and have loved them. when i got to know that there is a book of this genre in “HINDI” i was super excited as hindi is my mother tounge and i feel more comfortable with it.

so i started this book and i was unable to keep it down till i have read this completely.

This book is the first book in “sangram-sindhu gatha” of which three more books are to come.

i will not give you many spoilers but let me tell you that this book is the story of a boy “vidhan” who is living in a village with his mother and has a cousin brother “sattu”.

the main story starts with a tragedy which completly devastates vidhan. during the same time the people of “arthala” visit him seeking his help in the protection of arthala(which is looking at an approaching war).

vidhan has a special power “bhumi-siddhi” which is supposedly going to be of a lot of help in the war.

now, the first book will not take you into the war but it is leading up to that.

WHY I LIKED THIS BOOK

  1. Whenever you read a book of this genre you look forward to the war scenes, and those have been depicted in a amazing way, not only the fighting but also the planning.
  2. When a war is approaching, everything seems very gloomy but in this book there is this character “sattu” who will also make you laugh in between the tense sequences. so it also has humour in it.
  3. A War scene of queen of arthala is shown in this book and that is probably the best part of this book, the skills of the queen are awesome. every reader is definately going to enjoy it.
  4. some love sequences are also shown there, so you will enjoy that too.

THE CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK ARE PERFECTLY DESCRIBED, EACH CHARACTER HAS AN IMPORTANCE IN THE STORY.

THIS IS PROBABLY THE FIRST BOOK OF THIS GENRE IN HINDI. AND IF YOU WANT TO READ A FANTASY NOVEL IN HINDI YOU MUST DEFINATELY GO FOR THIS NOVEL.

NOT MUCH CAN BE TOLD ABOUT THE WHOLE OF THE STORY, AS IT IS GOING TO BE A FOUR PART SERIES, BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU ONE THING YOU WILL LOVE THE FIRST BOOK FOR SURE.

THIS HAS ENTERTAINED ME A LOT, AND I WILL BE EAGERLY WAITING FOR THE NEXT PART. SO GO AHEAD AND READ THIS.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR FANTASY LOVERS.

THERE IS REALLY NOTHING THAT I CAN POINT OUT AS A NEGATIVE POINT IN THIS BOOK.

ALL THE QUERIES AND SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME.

THANK YOU.
