Review 6 – The girl in room 105
Author -Chetan Bhagat,
A book is good, if it is enjoyable. CB ( Chetan Bhagat) has expertise in sprinkling humour over main theme of the story. At some points humour seems forced, but at other points reader will giggle.
This work is simple, engaging, tickling and full of interesting characters. Theme hovers around two amateur and accidetal detectives, who risk everything in search of truth. It keeps reader engaged and builds up nicely. Reader will like investigations and details of contemporary India.
Book touches complex political issues but only at surface and tries to stand free of controversy. Undertones have familiar sociopolitical struggles which come up and vanish, when story again takeover.
Immersed brand advertising is distraction and at one or two points story stagnates. Nobody wants undercover ads to pop out at places. And again come up after few pages.
Avid thriller readers might not get a kick out of it.😏 They will predict ending and will say few of details were imperfect. Characters are too typical and behave erratically at points to justify the storyline. Each clue appears too easily, for our protagonist to latch upon. And, surprisingly all characters in the book have increased libido.
overall, another typical Cb bestseller, which one can pickup anytime and enjoy.
Rating – 4/5 🍩🍩🍩🍩

Publisher – Shristhi publishers.
This is work of fiction which focuses on love story of two engineering students who get trapped into deep turbulence in their life. Events unfold in such a way that they find themselves in situation, which demands great courage to get back on track.
This is a very simple read with very little strain on mind of the reader. Although you miss dose of humour, which India paperback authors like Chetan Bhagat provide.
Story is predictable throughout with college life depiction, which has already been tapped by many authors active in our times. So you tend to miss novelty at a lot of places.
But author has formatted the story in a meaningful way. Last one third of book has power to touch raw nerves of reader with emotions outpoured in abundance. Climax salvages the story which somehow appears too predictable.
Few of the acts by characters seem to be artificial and few like, entering school in night which is, somehow left open for anybody to visit and remember their old days. Also leaving family marriage event for evening stroll.
Author has been succesfull in evoking emotions which teens would like. Themes may seem familiar but last part gets better.
Overall nice book for romance genre fans.
Author – Uta Schmidt
Advance review copy
This book by Uta Schmidt is, concise work which aims to deliver pearls of wisdom from the lives of 9 great leaders of our time and aims to provide wisdom for common beings, who are facing their own difficult curves of life.
Book is divided into nine chapters and uses interviews of leaders and their books to decipher, how they thrived in the times of personal disasters.
Book is easy to read, simple and enjoyable most of the time. Anybody who has interest in theology and biographies will like this one to read.
Parts describing Nelson Mandela, Andrew White, William Paul young and Desmond Tutu are best segments and are quite insightful and enjoyable.
Other parts are at points, slow and appear stretched and you tend to feel good again when chapters on Andrew white and Paul Young start.
Anybody with scientific mind might feel unattached to areas of book describing visions and callings. If you are looking for a pure self help book, this one has lots of theology in it.
Overall it’s a nice read with its own difficult pages, interspersed with very good parts.
In last author describes, what has to be learnt from great people and how we can apply their advice in our daily lives.
First published 1946
Nano plot –
This is about a socially withdrawn man, who gets a call about death of his mother. After that point, series of events leads him to a pebelled path. Accidentally he commits a crime, which puts his life and into vicious spiral.
Author has imprinted each character very beautifully and reader feels than he can feel each emotion Meaursalt (main character) feels.
Depiction of emotions and mind chatter is realistic.
Story examines fate of an accused, who somehow becomes neglected part of the whole process. Many times you cannot choose your fate but you can choose how you react.
There is also deep emotions and many unanswered questions, which does not feel bad.
Good classic short novella, which is highly recommended.
