While surfing through a book store few days back, I saw the book The motorcycle diaries by Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara. Immediately decided to read it. I wanted to know more about Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara then knowing him just as a revolutionary figure and as a Graffiti on t-shirts of people who sometimes don’t even know who he is. This novel is a travel journal of Ernesto. Narrative from his travel diary. Don’t expe...

Having a financial Literacy is one of the prime thing to have in current times. I never had the proper concept of assets and liability in a way to understand how they were the source of my financial stability. Until I read this Book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Although I would say that I should have read this book , that way I wouldn’t have made the mistakes which I did while making financial decisions. This book won’t exactly give y...

When I first read Jurassic park, it blew my mind. Since then I have been a fan of the author Michael Crichton. I liked how he takes a sci-fi premise and makes it about something more profound and human. I liked how Jurassic park dealt with themes like man playing God, power, nature and life finding a way. So after that, I was looking for something similar from him to both excite and intellectually stimulate me. I then picked Timeline which tho...

This murder mystery – The devotion of suspect x by Keigo Higashino, was recommended by a friend and it is perhaps the best murder mystery book I have read till date. Having read this, I also read The Salvation of a saint and Naoko. And also plan to read A Midsummer’s Equation by the same author. This is the first time I have read a book by a Japanese writer after which of course I got more interested in Japanese writers and read Kafta on...

I am not a very big fan of books on management or the ones that deal with personality development, though once in a while its worth exploring the genre. Specially when the book is written by someone well renowned like Jim Collins. His first book Built to last which was about myths, insights and practical guidance to build a visionary companies which stand against the testimony of time, was a best seller.It was very well researched and had grea...

So Recently I came across this second book by Twinkle Khanna. I Dedicatedly follow her columns in Times of India and have become a fan of her Wit and Humor. Her first novel Mrs. Funnybones was an exceptional piece of writing, so decision of buying her second novel didn’t even took a second. It’s really intriguing how she finds humor in daily chores and such simple things so beautifully but then again that’s what writing is al...

Kafka on the shore by Haruki Murakami
Fiction , Review / July 23, 2017

I think my fascination with Japanese writers came after I read the novels written by Keigo Higashino. His book the devotion of a suspect X and another by the name the salvation of a saint left me speechless. His way of writing a crime fiction is truly phenomenal. So obviously huge expectations were there from Haruki Marukami, and Kafka on the shore didn’t disappoint.  The book is very engaging and although this is my first Mura...
