Runaway | Book Review

Book: Runaway
Author: Proteem Bhaduri
Purchase at: Amazon

Story Gist:
Imagine finding yourself in a situation where you are wanted for a murder, a murder which you did not commit, or which you have no memory of committing; you are not sure which one is true. Indraneel “Neel” finds himself as a wanted criminal overnight and has to run away in order to clear his name. Along with the police, even the goons are on his trails. He must find help along with the answers to all his questions. Will Neel be successful to do so? Or will it be too late? Read “Runaway” to find out.

Book Evaluation:

The thriller element of the plot is clearly portrayed through the cover of this book and is one of the reasons why I picked up this book. I could have read a little more of this story. The plotline manages to hold you on edge of your seats almost throughout the book, however, the suspense is given away too early. The blurb gives you a clear idea of to expect in the book and it delivers what is promised. Very few chapters could be predicted accurately. The writing style is fresh and would definitely look forward to more such books from the author. It makes perfect company for a road trip if you like to spend them reading in the backseat of the car. It is a must read as well as a must-have book for your shelf. 

Table For One | Book Review

Book: Table for One

Story Gist:
"There is a marriage proposal for you." Probably, this is the shortest horror story for every single girl. Taara managed to change her horror story into an amazing journey.

And so her journey begins to explore not only new places but a new her. Will this solo trip also bring love with it? Catch up with Taara and find out for yourself, read Table for one!

Book Evaluation:
The language is crisp and clear, sprinkled with light humour. The narration very beautifully depicts the conflicts which go through Taara’s mind now and then. The character of Taara develops throughout the story. She gets out of a breakup and discovers new shades of her own personality. The cover is just as epic as the book itself and is one of the reason for strong urges to travel across the globe. The story plot is simple yet effective and very well enhanced by Neha Bindal. Let ‘Table For One’ be your companion for the next trip. Grab a copy now!

My True Angel | Book Review

Book: My True Angel
Author: Irshad Thalakala
Purchase at: Amazon 

Story Gist:

Iqbal struggles to understand his emotions and is certain that his heart belongs to Rubina. Iqbal is on a journey for finding this true angel of love, will destiny allow them the future they dream of or will it reap them apart forever? Join Iqbal in his search.  

Book Evaluation:

The silhouettes of a couple against the starry night sky do emphasis on the fact that “My True Angel” is a love story. I loved the concept of the cover; however, something is missing on which I quite cannot put a finger on. The concept of the story is rather Bollywood style. Author has managed touch various issues in one go and has beautifully incorporated them into the story plot. We can clearly see the changes which occur in Iqbal and his transformation can be clearly made out towards the end of story. The written language is easy to understand and smooth flowing. The book doesn’t maintain an even pace throughout; it is quick at some point whereas unnecessarily elongated at other. If you are movie buff and a reader, you will have a gala time with your imagination playing the sequences in your head as you read the book.
