Asian Winds cover

Review

This book is a collection of environment poems. The book is divided as per subtopics such as china, indonesia and etc.
The words are simple the main issue has been tried to be broken down into poems and dealth with.

Having read his other work this book is also just like the previous one. There are pictures accompanied with the poems which make it more interesting to read it.
The titles are always clear and poems are to the mark.

Overall it focuses again on the many problems we’re going through on a global level. As the title suggests it is more about the asian countries. The cover could have been a little more hip.
Overall it is a nice read.

Review

Not so sweet stories
Sometimes some books are just as they seem and this book is supposedly one of them.
From the moment you start reading this book author has you hooked up to it.
Be it the blurb, title and even the cover of the book.

The cover is black in colour and showing up a coffee cup which means a conversation or a gossip taking place.

The title is really apt as far as all the stories goes.

Being intrigued to the book since the start.
So the book is a collection of 14 stories. They are not related to each other.
Each story has its own element of surprise and emotion. Indeed the stories are not very long and the twists that keep happening in every story is really applauding.
You might think maybe this is how it will end but no.

What I felt is every story has a different meaning of endings as well. I felt an element of thrill and alot of emotions as well.

My favourite stories were biryani, invisible lines and metro.

The narration of the stories is on to the point without any drag to the story.

And it’s really an amazing read along with your coffee or just to spend some time with books.
Can be read by anyone due to the easy words and flow of the stories.
Overall 4/5.

What kind of society do we live in today?

These short stories that integrate both fantasy and reality, manage to instil values and contribute to a better tomorrow.

 

 

Review

Potpourri is a collection of 10 children stories which can be read out or given them to read. The stories are 4-5 pages long and very interactive because of the use of colourful graphics. Good imagery. Each of the ten stories have a small teaching based on our morals that we have been taught for a long time.
1) isabelle’s day at the beach: the first story teaches us the value about small things in life.
2) rohan and the talking parrot : rohan realizes what freedom is.
3) rajah and his best friend :teaches sharing is caring and about humanity.
4)anna and the buzz be: makes us realize that imagination is necessary and how happiness is important.
5)prakash wins a prize : teaches that dedication and health is very important.
6) sheru does a good turn :dogs are our best of friends.
7) a memorable vacation : how journeys have a vague route and could end up in different things.
8) the classroom disaster:how kindness saves the day and also how to learn from mistakes and bullying doesn’t lead you anywhere.
9) deepak gets rewarded :honesty is the best policy
10) uma gets lost at the farm :beauty of nature.

I loved the imagination and simple words. The graphics go along well with the words.
A great book.

Review

James allen books are famous for his thought process and the self help books. This book is also a masterpiece with some advice for the beginner’s. The cover of the book is simple and has a peaceful vibe around it. The book has self help broken down into small pieces with well formed examples that will help you relate well to it and form some solutions to you.
The author has broken down right from the very thought process to actions and where are the things that we do go wrong. How our actions and thoughts are what we need to work upon. You will find the book to be relatable and helpful. In the end there is a short foreword which can be referred back to again and over again. The simple words and examples is what sets this book to be a bit different and unique.
There are small quotes and poems too which are a great takeaway from the book.

Review

The blurb really makes you curious about the story as to what happens next? Do they fall in love or what relation do they have together??

The cover is really catchy and intriguing it displays a mess and or different things one can be going in through. Shows a persons journey in as to relation between inside and outside. Also as seeing oneself as from a third person point of view.

The characters are few and have been depicted strong. The way the book starts and takes you through the twists and turns is what I really loved.

The suspense and thrill which builds in keeps you reading the book further.
I absolutely love the way author has penned down each scene with such ease.

It is a medium length book. Loved reading it throughout.

 

Warming fumes -Saurabh Pant

 

Blurb

This book is a vivid piece of poetry work by Indian author Saurabh Pant that generally focuses nature as its core theme to approach and study certain issues that are still vibrant.
A collection of poems with cartoons presented by Priya Verma from India and some photos shared by author’s Indian Google team, the work highlights issues of warming, tries to bring them in common picture and explain problems widely.
The book contains poems on nature of certain areas, highlights issue of urban heat and cultural stigma, the challenges of political factors in scene, and ultimately focuses on the multiple scenes dominating the nature.
Thus it is a work of natural poetry, the author has presented rhythmic styles on certain poems, and at last a work that is surely going to attract readers and help them enjoy this poetry collection for sure at large..

 

Review

Warming fumes is a collection of poems mostly focused on upon nature. The title could have different meaning such as it’s the global warming or one’s thoughts due to the things happening around.
The cover is really simple but adds into the feelings.

So this book is a collection of poems about and mostly only revolves around nature. The starting few pages are about the author and where else can you find more stuff. The book is divided into several parts.

The book does not think about anything but splices up truth about todays environment for you.
What I really loved is how the poet wraps around nature and emotions weaved into poems.
The length of the poems are medium. They’re not to long or short. There are pictures accompanying the start of these sections. And there are drawings which i feel could have been a bit better or atleast coloured because it adds in a little monotonous feeling. The poems are about global warming, Antarctica and all that nature which is going into drain due to us.
My favourite part in the whole book was natural disaster. That section really did make me very emotional.

The book is sensitive.

A year without summer -Shreyan Laha

BLURB

The year 1816 experienced sudden downfall of temperatures. Kolkata had frozen to its lowest of -15 degreecelcius. Widespread diseases were common. Sharat was no exception as he was forced to quit his Zamindar lifestyle after his parents died. On the other hand in 2018, there was Niharika, living in the best of times – in a fairly modern society. She loved her life – her group of friends, her family and everything around her. Little did they know that something awaited them far away in a deserted civilisation 6 billion years into the future; in the planet Nocturne which was ravaged by compounds of a rare element called Barrenium. A Year Without Summer is a tale on how lives can intertwine with no restrictions in space time and dimensions.

REVIEW

Having picked up the book my very first thought was the title itself is so intriguing also what will it be a love story or what genre it is. After reading the blurb it’s a bit clear what ge re it is. And yes the author does not let you down. From the cover itself it gives you a mild softness in the story and a sense of scifi happening all around. The story revolves around the two main characters I love how the story starts. The book is divided into five parts. I love how the book is well researched and written as it isn’t easy to do so with this genre. Over all a good read. The story is a bit long but interesting. Would definitely recommend it to the readers

Review

 

The cover is really colorful and vibrant showing what goes on into a women’s head or the different divergent roles. The blurb gives you an insight about how different women in different places made a good choice and changes around them. How everything around is building and falling apart.
This book really shows the power of women. The title shows its simplicity yet the power of how just being a housewife is so much more than just the title. Different roles and aspects of women have been explained.
I really loved how the book gave in a view of 21st century women.
Loved the way narration was done. A different kind of book. The plot is different.

I liked the book overall.
4/5

IN CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHOR.

1. Please introduce yourself and tell us when did your journey as a writer begin?
Ans : I am a learning & development professional & a health & safety trainer. Story telling has always been part of my profession but writing only began an year ago with Version One and a Half, which was about my childhood in a small town in ’80s India & how i have improved my life in 2018 using these memories. The second book Diary from Heaven was inspired from my own experiences as a teenager & the third & most recent, Double One Zero (110) – Out of the shadows, launched on 16th Jan, 2020, is my first truely fiction story.

2. The cover indicates crime & Action.
What is the motive behind choosing the title & the cover?
Ans : Crime & action thrillers have always been my favourite genre when it comes to movies. This genre has always fascinated me so I chose to write an action thriller for my first fiction project. Double One Zero (110) will be a series & Out of the Shadows being the first where the title character cones out of the shadows of a world hidden from everyone. Hence the title & the coverpage signify his coming out with a bang.
Does the title has any effect of twist in the story? The title is the essence of the stroy but the real twist lies in Double One Zero (110) discovering the truth about his life as the story proceeds.

3. As we all know your third book released recently, tell us how was the response from the audience for your previous books.
Ans : My first book Version One and a Half had struck the right chord with mellenials who were excited to know about pre-internet era life of ’80s. My second book was about a socially relevant topic of drug addiction & its impact on today’s youth. Many readers have asked me if Arun from Diary from Heaven was a real person or not because of surreal description of his life.

4. What are your opinions on Best selling books ?
Ans : Best sellers I have read are from varied genre like The Subtle Art of Not Giving F*** is about self-help while The Girl in Room 105 deals with terrorism & also show cases a reality that not all IIT’ians go on to start a start-up, some lead normal lives as well.

5. What motivated you to write this book? Did you face any difficulty while writing the book?
Ans : This book is my ode to the action movie genre i have adored while growing up. Characters like John McClean, Martin Riggs, Rambo, Commando & many more have always fascinated me.

6. What is your favorite genre?
Ans : Action & Thriller

7. What message you would like to give to ametute writers & readers?
Ans : Patience pays. Many wannabe writers, including one of my cousin’s, give up writing too soon. Take baby steps but continue writing. Sooner or later you will find direction & complete your work. Readers must experiment & read work of new authors as well.
