Man vs Wife by Ashish Srivastava – Book Review

Man vs Wife - doesn't it sound poetic? However, the concept behind this phrase is horrible as well as humorous at the same time. If humour wins over the horrible thought, it can be enjoyed. However, if it is literally what it seems, Man vs Wife, then one has to be very cautious; lives are at stake, a family is at the betting line and too many emotions as well. [...]

Greed Lust Addiction by Ravi Dabral – Book Review

Before we begin: Greed Lust Addiction by Ravi Dabral is a novel that perfectly suited my thinking, my vision and my expectations from Indian English literature. It has that serenity, a class and also the modern share of thrill and 'fiction entertainment' that the readers of young age need in a novel. Ravi Dabral has been wonderful most of the times except making this novel a little oversimplified at places. [...]

Pravin Anand's latest book, Mumtaz and Taj Mahal, is more about retelling a tale of love, a monumental love that saw the Taj rising.

Elephants in the Room – Book Review

Before I get into the details, let me share some facts about Suraj Laxminarayanan's debut novel, a crime thriller piece of fictional literature. The first important thing that a reader should know is that the author has taken almost 3 (even a little more than that) years to complete this novel. Elephants in the Room by Suraj is the result of constant cleansing, curating and bettering a creation of words [...]
