There are a few words hardwired into the Indian psyche that only float to the surface at the time of elections. Some that I can think of are - development, secularism, anti-corruption, growth, anti-fundamentalism etc. These words lavishly peppered wi ...more

Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

The experience that this book left me with was like going to a lacklustre movie only because the trailer was promising enough. Who wouldn’t want to get their hands on an investigative thriller written by Stephen King ? A deadly game of cat and mouse ...more

Elizabeth's Legacy by Victor Kloss
Rate this book

The prologue of the story is one that left me completely befuddled. It was not an awe inspiring or a mysterious one, it was just…a prologue and did not make me want to rush on to the next chapter. From the Elizabethan age, the story then jumps to the ...more

Umm...so what was this supposed to be all about ? Victor Von Doom dons the Iron Man suit and then nothing happens.

Random characters come and go and that's about it.

Carlos Fuentes
“One wants to tell a story, like Scheherezade, in order not to die. It's one of the oldest urges in mankind. It's a way of stalling death.”
Carlos Fuentes

Nicholson Baker
“I woke up thinking a very pleasant thought. There is lots left in the world to read.”
Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist

Carl Sandburg
“His books were part of him. Each year of his life, it seemed, his books became more and more a part of him. This room, thirty by twenty feet, and the walls of shelves filled with books, had for him the murmuring of many voices. In the books of Herodotus, Tacitus, Rabelais, Thomas Browne, John Milton, and scores of others, he had found men of face and voice more real to him than many a man he had met for a smoke and a talk.”
Carl Sandburg, Remembrance Rock

Roberto Bolaño
“Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck is infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.”
Roberto Bolaño

Henry Miller
“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.”
Henry Miller, The Books in My Life
