  • The Sameness in a Consistent ChangeThe Sameness in a Consistent Change | Sujay Malik | Book Review
    Dedicated to everyone cruising along in this journey of life, The Sameness in a Consistent Change is a book on nostalgia and memory. At a stretch, The Sameness in a Consistent Change is a good 60-minutes-read but it can barely be read at a go. It takes time for the ideas to seep in.Read More

    I picked up The Old Man and the Sea because I am participating in an Instagram readathon in which the prompt was to read a book that is a part of a “100 books to read in a lifetime” list.

  • If I am Born Again Lord PleaseIf I am Born Again Lord Please… | Shopone | Book Review
    Unlike many other poetry books that I read, If I am Born Again Lord Please does not include a lot of poems. It does have a couple of them but all the poems in this collection are connected. What makes this book stand out from other poetry books is that in this book, the poet uses 7 different poems (and a few illustrations) to tell us a story.Read More

    Isles of Mambo comes with a social message in each story like a moral that can be taken away from each of them. It is a collection of 12 short stories beginning with the story Twelve.

  • Elephants in the Room Suraj LaxminarayananElephants in the Room | Suraj Laxminarayanan | Book Review
    Elephants in the Room by Suraj Laxminarayanan is about a naïve bunch of ragtag men and their amateurly planned bank robbery gone wrong. The book is massive. It is just short of 600 pages and that’s a lot to overwhelm any reader but let that not deter you from giving this book a chance.Read More
  • Buddhist BankerBuddhist Banker | Kandarp Gandhi | Book Review
    Buddhist Banker is an easy-breezy read which doesn’t have much to boast of. But even then, what it lacks in terms of the storyline, plot, characters, climax and writing style is compensated by the simple life-lessons that it teaches its readers.
