Reethu Ravi and 18 other people liked Saif Sayed 's review of Em and The Big Hoom:
Em and The Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto
""You can cry in public as long as you don not sob. Tears are transparent. If you’re walking fast, if the sun’s too strong, no one notices. Sobs intrude. They push their way into people’s consciousness. They feel duty-bound to ask what has happened..." Read more of this review »
Reethu Ravi and 240 other people liked Matthew's review of The Handmaid's Tale:
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
"An interesting book to read right now for a couple of reasons. One, I just finished 1984 and it was very much a world like the one in 1984. Two, the storyline closely reflects the fears of the current political climate in America.

It is hard to say..." Read more of this review »

Hit Refresh by Satya Nadella
"My first book of 2019 was a disappointment. I wanted to enjoy the book and the beginning showed promise, but it devolved into an advertorial for Microsoft. I'm sure Satya Nadella meant everything, but I was interested in behind the scenes happenin..." Read more of this review »

Ray Bradbury
“You're afraid of making mistakes. Don't be. Mistakes can be profited by. Man, when I was young I shoved my ignorance in people's faces. They beat me with sticks. By the time I was forty my blunt instrument had been honed to a fine cutting point for me. If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you'll never learn.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

John Green
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Markus Zusak
“Make no mistake, the woman had a heart. She had a bigger one that people would think. There was a lot in it, stored up, high in miles of hidden shelving. Remember that she was the woman with the instrument strapped to her body in the long, moon-slit night.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Arundhati Roy
“Writers imagine that they cull stories from the world. I'm beginning to believe that vanity makes them think so. That it's actually the other way around. Stories cull writers from the world. Stories reveal themselves to us. The public narrative, the private narrative - they colonize us. They commission us. They insist on being told. Fiction and nonfiction are only different techniques of story telling. For reasons that I don't fully understand, fiction dances out of me, and nonfiction is wrenched out by the aching, broken world I wake up to every morning.”
Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

“Life has no remote....get up and change it yourself!”
Mark A. Cooper, Operation Einstein
