REVIEW

Once I read the blurb I was really interested to know what the story really holds. The blurb is really catchy and the title is short and relates well to the cardiologist and also as to how it takes you through a thrill and catches your mind.

The book consists of amazing thrill and twists. I really loved how the author narrated the incidents you really feel you’re going through the scenes. The first half of the book was really my favourite after that it got a little difficult to understand so yeah.

It’s a good book with emotions of revenge and nail biting turns in the story.
It’s a little medium lengthy book.
Overall 4/5

The cover gives off a really game kind if a vibe along with showing of power and glory. The book is full of twists and turns. I really loved how the book changed its pace and keeps the reader glued to the story. with the blurb itself you can feel and understand how amazing is the story. I absolutely felt as if I was going through a drama movie with such thrill. The words are easy to understand. The author speaks about everything in third person. The story is gripping. there is love, revenge and so much power. All the elements are put up beautifully in the book. Cant wait to read more from the same author. The plot, narration and story all of it will leave an impact on you.

The web of karma – Anurag Shrivastava

Blurb

This is the era of Jungle-Raaj in Bihar – the dark age of increasing anarchy and lawlessness in the state.
Control over law and order has long since passed from the hands of the administration to caste-based gangs and organized crime syndicates enjoying political patronage. Kidnapping has become one of the flourishing businesses of the state, while every other industry has dwindled down and the development plank has gone on a pause mode, on account of Rangdari, which is yet another booming business apart from contract killing, smuggling, illegal tree cutting, and vehicle snatching. Migration to other states is at peak: not only of big businessmen, but also of lowly laborers. And those who can’t leave the state are either sucked into the crime world or are forced to live under fear. Albeit the local newspapers everyday sketch the sordid saga of the state, the execrable condition is not likely to improve by any means in the near future.

Digambar Babu, a middle-aged man of a small town Motihari (the place of Mahatma Gandhi’s Champaran Satyagrah), is dejected and dismayed for his family falling apart, and so sets himself on a mission to make amends for the mistakes he has done in the past. Shakuntala Devi, his wife, infuriated at herself for having devoted her whole life selflessly and arduously for her ungrateful family, wants to make up for the injustice she has done to herself, by living the rest of her life selfishly. Sarvesh, their asthmatic son, whose first marriage perished about a decade ago, is still struggling with both his career and his married life, and Nisha, their daughter, is married to someone whom she thinks she will never be able to love. The biggest threat to the already troubled family is Nisha’s ex-lover Kanhaiya Tiwari, who is the youngest corporator of the town, and has sworn to ruin the family.
Shyam, Nisha’s husband, who is ‘the absorber of the emotions’, in keeping with his fluidity, writhes in pain but transforms time and again, in order to win his wife’s heart, while Savita, Sarvesh’s current wife, colludes with Kanhaiya Tiwari in his evil intent, in order to have all the strings of the family in her hands. Benighted in Sodom, they weave their web of Karma, and fabricate their fates, but the biggest sufferer in the ruthless game of dominance and survival are the innocent children of the family.

The story tries to draw parallels between Digambar Babu’s disarrayed family and the disordered town.

The novel is inspired from the real events happened in the town during 90’s era of jungle-raaj.

Starting off with the cover i personally loved it alot depicts the flow of universe within one and around. The title is also apt and goes along well with the book. The book is set in old times and bihar. The way it has been written is really beautiful. Characterization of the characters is really good.

The book takes you a bit to the old times and forms an imagery and takes you along to a journey.

Overall 4/5.

REVIEW

Firstly a tremendous job done by srijan. Cannot believe how beautiful his work is.
The book is an imaginary SciFi story consisting of zombies and how blahman erases them away. It’s a short read but filled with so much. Plot twists and easy words to understand. This book has so many colourful drawings which really adds in to the whole effect during reading. One thing i felt during reading the book is a high energy flow all the time. The cover and title are also very intresting. I loved reading the book. Hope srijan keeps writing more of this series. The book totally gives you off the wimpy kid feeling. I really loved how there were questions and how to draw sections which makes the book all the more close and intuitive. Characterization has been done really well.

Mr. Warner believes there is an underlying meaning to the letter, and that he had a premonition of an ominous happening. While the suspects are few, possibilities are many. When an innocent man is sent to jail, Magnus Hooper, a criminal detective, vows to bring the perpetrator to justice. The web of crime with its intricate knots proves to be a challenge at each step. For Magnus, this proves to be an intriguing game and a precarious gamble.

 

REVIEW

Magnus hooper is a detective who solves around many criminal cases, the book will surely remind you a bit about Sherlock Holmes at the least. The book is a little lengthy read but worth it. it is really interesting to see how it is written by a teenager who is managing both her studies and as well as writing this amazing book. the efforts by the author can really be seen really well. The vocabulary is easy to understand. The thriller is alright to read but the attempt is really beautiful to see. The cover gives you a very mystical vibe as well as the title one might think of it as a sci-fi. The plot is alright. The characterization is fine as well. Cannot wait what the little magician has more to offer.
