1984 by George Orwell

1984 | George Orwell | Book Review

1984 is not just an anxious story about the state and the use of its unfair means to do as it pleases, but also about human relations with one another. A story where parents can’t trust their own children, a colleague can’t sit with another colleague, a story about extensive inequality, and a story of an utter betrayal by your own instincts.

The Green Room | Nag Mani | Book Review

The Green Room is a pretty decent book for somebody looking for mild horror. Set in a centuries old boarding school of Nainital, the book certainly gets the backdrop right. After all, there is something hauntingly beautiful about the lonely forests and the desolate roads of Himalayan towns.
