Book Review:

The book is filled with beautiful words forming poems which will act as music to heart. Suitable for all ages and on various topics, Whisperings of a Common Man is a welcome break from the usual novels. You would be conversing with Sea at one moment and at the next you will instantly connect with the short verses mirroring the people you meet.  

To Read or Not To Read:

The language use is easy to understand in some of the poems like ‘The Beautiful’ and ‘Meeting People’ whereas it is a tad bit difficult in some like ‘Discover the Hidden’ However, all the poems are followed by explanations from the poet showing us what exactly he is meant to convey. The messages are received clearly post that. Conversation with Sea is a unique, innovative and very nicely conceptualized poem. It is a quick read and will not even take up an entire day. You can just pop up the kindle version to make your boring bus ride lively.

To Read or Not To Read:

This book had me solid glued to it. It just wouldn’t let me go! The language is well flowing, easy to understand and oh so stylishly decorated! Moreover, this feel stays throughout the story line. The plot is amazing and initial chapters is what all of us can relate to. The correlation of the chapters to the Seven Chakras on one’s existence has been beautifully depicted as the Story flows from the bottom most Mooladhar Chakra to Swadhishtan Chakra. The sense of humor in bang on and that is one of the main reason which keeps the reader engaged. I loved the subtle cover art also. The characters of Anand and Ravi have developed progressively as the story reaches its climax. The title is very thought provoking. Worth having on your reading shelf. Vishak Shakti does an amazing job with “Mango People In Banana Republic”

To Read or Not To Read:

The book starts with slow moving chapters but picks up after a few initials ones. The writing is fairly easy to understand. A love triangle is introduced in story which was not really required in a political thriller and doesn’t really support the plot. Getting the sheer political aspects right has highlighted the story line and ensured the eagerness of what is to come next. The end is definitely something which was least expected. If you are fond reader of political thriller genre then this is the right one for you.
