Mr. Magillacutty and His Breakfast Feast
She uses excellent characterizations, she makes you so invested in each of the characters and their relationships with each other that you find yourself reading faster to know what is going to happen next. We find him struggling emotionally and financially.
We see how his blogging impacts his life and the lives of people around him. The pace of the story is slow. But it is perfect for the kind of story that the author is weaving. In fact, the slow pace helps build the thrill. Each character is crafted wonderfully, and their relationship with each other makes this an extremely wonderful read.
Unable to forget him and confident of his love for her, Svetlana travels to India in search of her prince.
April – There and Their
Does she find him? What happens to her love? How does the international politics affect her life? The murder, trails, betrayals and the hope leads to more agony. I was attracted by the cover and the blurb of this book. Especially since it is about an era that I love reading about. While the main premise of the story is great, I felt it needed a lot in terms of narration and settings.
This book feels more like a plot line than a finished novel. Even though the characters are well known, we do not read much about them or their lives. I especially liked the way the author has handled the ending, it was unexpected and was like a whiff of fresh air.
The climax of the story was exceptionally handled and was the best part of the book. The pace of the story is perfect. There is a feel of adventure and the readers are constantly on their heels as to what is going to happen. The characters are all beautifully crafted. Even those who are not human i. The best part of this book is the visual imagery. Reading this book feels as though the author is showing us a movie, the words jump out and form larger than life picture in the minds of its readers. Not just the characters, but the scene setting and overall narration made the overall reading of this book a pleasure.
This book is an interesting mix of action, adventure, science fiction, and mythology. If you like any of these genres, be sure to pick this one out. My Rating: Cover: 4 out of 4 Story: 3. Fused is a memoir written by Dr. James Manning. Manning interacts with his reader, using an easy, conversational writing style that informs while it engages the reader in his story. OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in mainstream media is seen as a character Quirk, from Monica in friends to Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory, we have seen characters who get irritated when things are not in their place or how they should be.
These character traits are usually there to provide comic relief, but what we fail to see is what happens to the people who actually have to live with OCD. We hardly see books or any media portraying this seriously. So, we see and understand the workings of his mind from a very basic, raw, personal level on one hand, and a scientific level on other. We see how this issue made him reach the depth of isolation and depression and we also see how his study of the human mind helped him understand and accept himself. We see how coming across the cognitive behavioural therapy helped him understand and control his compulsive behaviours.
It is easy to become annoyed by a person with OCD, but if we step into their shoes it helps us empathise. This is a no-nonsense book on what goes on behind the scenes. It is a book for those who suffer from OCD, as they would be able to understand and empathise with the writing, and those who do not, as it would help get to know and understand people who do.
Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from the excruciating pain. He requests the villagers to take him to the three monks. They are all intrigued by the legend of the mystical three monks. No one has seen them but only heard stories of miraculous healing they offered.
The old man wakes up to the sight of the three monks, but only to know that they are no saints but notorious criminals. What they tell Dakshesh in his last few breaths, shakes his entire perception of humanity and its sins. This book is different, it is dark, traumatising and makes you think. Unlike other books of this genre, this story also touches upon mental illnesses and how they affect the society.
The author explores what happens if people become slaves to their disruptive minds. The book starts on a different note. Initially, the way the story started I felt it would go on a spiritual note as we see a person wishing to meet the three wise monks. But once he meets the said monks, the story takes a dark turn where we read the dark past of each of these monks. The overall construction of the story is excellent. The fact that the three stories were completely different from each other, which made the reading process quite effortless.
The characters were multifaceted. The writing mixes poetry and prose quite effortlessly. It helps us understand what is going on in the mind of the people. Buy this book. Lights are dimmed. The musical is about to begin.

As the beautiful princess descends on stage, the mythical creatures from her kingdom come alive. Flickers of brilliant colours blaze across as mesmerizing music pulsates from one corner of the theatre to the other. A fairy tale is about to unfold… As young children, we often come across things that stay in our hearts forever. For Appu, it is a fairy tale about a beautiful princess. What follows is an evocative tale of love and loss, friendship and betrayal, as the story travels through the snow-peaked mountains of Arunachal to the golden deserts of Jaisalmer, the tulip gardens of Holland to the lush greens of Kerala.
This book really took me by surprise. The basic story line is pretty simple: It is a story of Appu and how he navigates life. But the author weaves the story in such a way that as a reader you become hooked. Although is not a thriller, the writing is such that you become so invested in the lives of the characters that you find yourself gripped in the world of this book. The characterization in this book is wonderful.
It is evident that the author has spent a considerable amount of time with each character, even those who appear for a chapter or two.

The author definitely has a way with words. He has a strong command over his plot and his characters.

The story is so realistic, yet so interesting that readers tend to become part of it. You actually miss reading the story once it is over. The only minor issue I had with the book was that I found a couple of grammatical error, nothing major that cannot be fixed in the second issue.

The story starts with a long drawn description of football which lasts for the entire chapter. But we get the gist that the protagonist, Brain, wants to talk to his girlfriend after the game. While I could not relate to the characters or the setting, I could empathize with what was going on. The picture of the society that the author builds gives the readers a solid perspective of what was going on.
