Book Review – Letters of a Bloodline, Maya’s Confession

I bought the book a day after it released, on March 1 but started reading it much later because I was reading “A Gentleman in Moscow” at that time … and was under its spell for nearly three weeks. Then I re-read  “Rebecca” before picking this one up. I read the first few pages and … Read more Book Review – Letters of a Bloodline, Maya’s Confession

Book Review – Persuader

After reading “A Gentleman in Moscow” and re-reading “Rebecca”, I had a reading lull for nearly a week. I would start a book and read a few pages, then go to another book, repeat the process :). Finally I decided to get a Jack Reacher novel so that it brings me back to my reading … Read more Book Review – Persuader

Book Review #27/50 – Rebecca

I have read this book a few times as am sure many fiction lovers have. A few days back, I was browsing through my Kindle library looking for the next book to read after the delicious “Gentleman in Moscow” and Rebecca popped up ! I re-read it and even though I knew the plot and … Read more Book Review #27/50 – Rebecca

Book Review 26/50 – A Gentleman in Moscow

I miss Count Rostov, Hotel Metropol, Nina, Sofia, Anna, Marina, Mishka, Emile, Andrey, IdleHour, the Boyarsky…. I miss reading this book. I want to know what happened to Sofia and to Count Rostov after the last page in the novel. I never thought I would come across a book that I felt should never end. … Read more Book Review 26/50 – A Gentleman in Moscow

Book Review #25/50 – Devil in Pinstripes

This is the 3rd book of Ravi Subramanian’s that I have read in quick succession. Have downloaded other books now so there will be a gap before I review another book of his. This book is again a good one to use for a classroom discussion on office politics, incentive programs and overbearing personalities as … Read more Book Review #25/50 – Devil in Pinstripes

Book Review #24/50 – If God was a Banker

As I mentioned in my review of Ravi Subramanian’s first book, I like his style of writing and I had already started reading this book as soon as I completed reading “The Bankster”. This book came out in 2007 and traces the careers of two IIM graduates Sundeep and Swami, from the time they join … Read more Book Review #24/50 – If God was a Banker

Book Review #23/50 – The Bankster

I borrowed this book on Kindle Unlimited nearly two months back but didn’t get around to reading it. I finally picked it up just a couple of days back. This is also the first book out of the several books that Ravi Subramanian has written that I am reading. Its a fast paced book and … Read more Book Review #23/50 – The Bankster

Book Review #20/50 – Letters of a Bloodline

How do you review a son-in-law’s first book ? By forgetting that you are related to him :). So Jay, this is the review as a reader, not as your “difficult” mom-in-law. Just a bit of a background – Jay Puranik, the author is married to my best friend Geetu’s daughter Gayatri and at the … Read more Book Review #20/50 – Letters of a Bloodline

Book Review #19/50 – The Silent Patient

I completed reading this book nearly ten days back and still think of it a few times … its a work of fiction that is gripping, a psycho thriller with a psychiatrist as the main character. Alex Michaelides’ maiden novel is truly outstanding !! Some of the excerpts from the book that I thought were … Read more Book Review #19/50 – The Silent Patient
