Fall of Giants by Ken Follett

I have just finished reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follett, a superbly written historical fiction. While randomly buying this 852 pages long eBook (partly due to its very low price) I hardly knew that I have laid my hands on a gem. It is a big challenge to write […]

Wool by Hugh Howey : The short eBook

The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

When I had read Crime and Punishment by Fyodor, the author’s familiarity with human emotions of guilt, anger, frustration had overwhelmed me.

The Man Who Knew Too Much by G. K. Chesterton

The Man who Knew Too Much by G.K. Chesterton is a novel I recently picked up or rather downloaded through my Kindle App quite impulsively. When I began reading, I knew nothing about the book or the author. And, my decision was totally based on the appeal of the intriguing […]
