No..seriously! Don't know why Bhagat stoops this low when it comes to literary content. (or just raw content for that matter.) His book(s) has/have got neither. Not that he had stooped any higher before, but you get the point right? The story is so filmy,a cheesy film has already been made on it(and it did bomb big time obviously). Agreed that he's making India read like never before, but sadly he's making them read zilch. Now that he had his fair share of fame, made some quick bucks on the way, caught people's attention with his 4 "bestsellers", gave birth to a bagful of Bhagat wannabe's who as a matter of fact are now clogging up bookstores with their own versions of 5.someone(Spare a thought for those trees that went down in the process), isn't it's time for his Magnum Opus or something of that sorts? The guy writes great columns for TOI and is an IIT-IIM hybrid,for God's sake! Surely,he must be hiding some dream work up his sleeve. Unleash it Mr.Bhagat! When you do,now mark my words someone,"I'll eat my words!" (less)

Another mystic mystery from the cryptic Christery Christie. Love to read her novels on the move. They do make for a thrill-filled ride every time.
Dentist Mr.Morley 'appears' to have committed suicide in his own surgery. No suspicion whatsoever arises on the clients who visited him during the hour, our good old Poirot being one of them. Thinking he did it? Common, AC's smarter than that! While everyone believes in the suicide theory,Poirot thinks otherwise. With some help from Inspector Japp, he sets out to do what he does best. Find out who did it among them and why. As the mystery refuses to unfold, we find out even the great Poirot isn't an exception to those red herrings laid out to hinder his investigation. But the 'little grey cells' can only take so much. Exactly how much? That is the question. Read it to find out. What's better is that Christie refreshes our childhood memories with the rhyme 'One, Two, Buckle my Shoe' for she chose to weave the story on it's lines.
(No disrespect to the Grey cells, but i did find Poirot's deduction a bit too grey-ey for my liking. It sort of felt like a proposed theory which turned out to be right after all.That being said,did enjoy it very much though.)One, Two, Buckle My ShoeAgatha Christie(less)

I didn't know what dystopia was before reading '1984'. And now that I've read it,I don't want no piece of it no-more. It's got gruesome written all over it.
