Book review-. 2 states


Image result for 2 states book by chetan bhagat

2 States – The Story of My Marriage' is a novel written by Chetan Bhagat. The novel is based on the story of a couple, who belongs to different states, castes and religion and wanted to get married. How they meet at IIMA campus and the way they convince their parents for their marriage is the actual plot of the novel. 2 States, is a very interesting novel, which is light and seems real as every second couple in India can relate tthis story.It has several humourous instances as well. PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS.

Book review- the IMMORTALS OF MELUHA

 Image result for the immortals of meluha

THE IMMORTALS OF MELUHA is  the first book of the 'Shiva Trilogy' by AMISH TRIPATHI. What makes this book, and the following two, a good read is the SIMPLICITY of language and an EASY and RACY  NARRATIVE STYLE. The plot hardly ever slows down enough for the reader to lose interest as one event leads to another.

Read this book if you love reading mythology...... And DEFINITELY read the book if you are not so ...as none could dislike a book having action and suspense on every page.

Once upon a time, in small-town India, there lived two intelligent boys.One wanted to use his intelligence to MAKE MONEY.One wanted to use his intelligence to create a REVOLUTION.
The problem was, they both LOVED THE SAME GIRL.
REVOLUTION 2020 is an amazing book written by Chetan bhagat. It is one of my favourites and has an ending which you wouldn't have thought of while reading the book.

Book Review - If you love horror then must pick



This was an absolute delight to read. Anthony Horowitz delights the reader with 14 tales of horror. The first story is written as an introduction. I was a little puzzled by that particular tale because it was difficult to determine if it was a real introduction or not. By the end, I was certain that this was just a taste of what was in store. Most of the stories had twists I did not expect. Anthony Horowitz never fails to provide spine-tingling twists and turns. I am amazed every time at how he is able to deliver an amazing story in just a few short pages. If you love horror then must pick.

book review of ANGELS & DEMONS

I recently read the novel "ANGELS & DEMONS" written by Dan Brown ,the author of the international bestseller of "Da Vinci Code".While reading this novel you can imagine yourself in a world full of mystery and intrigue. The plot of this novel follows CERN director Maximillar Kohler discovering  a physicist murdered, his chest branded with an ambigram of  word "ILLUMINATI". Kohler contacts Robert Langdon, an expert on the Illuminati, who determines that the ambigram as authentic. Then it is found that the the one who have murdered the physicist has stolen a canister containing ANTI-MATTER. And later.......
I think that you should know the later part on your own. It's an interesting novel. 
I recommend it to all suspense and mystery lovers.

Revolution 2020

Revolution 2020 is Chetan Bhagat’s fifth book and most criticized book .The story has the usual and his own way of handling social stuffs and this time it is Corruption. Three childhood friends Gopal ,Ragav and Aarti has different aspirations in life with Gopal wanting to become rich ,Ragav wanting a global political change  and Aarti wants to become an air hostess .
Revolution 2020 as the name says has very little than what the name actually says but still Chetan Bhagat taking steps to provide youthful solution of reducing corruption is appreciated. What the book lacks is the obvious fun factor when you compared to his other previous books like 2 States involving a racist humour.In this book Revolution 2020, .the writer has very well portrait the life of a student who went to another city for studies but failed in his education. The author has clearly the rotten Indian education system and corruption that exists till date.  Gopal’s cribbing about not getting a good enough rank is the fate of Indian Education system and most of us would have crossed that pace in our life. This is where our fate of our life is chosen by the ranks we get than we choosing it.Then our protagonist Gopal proceeds to set up his own business, GangaTech college in Varanasi with the help of an MLA Shukla using his Power .He pay bribes to everyone he comes across to keep the Engineering college running, from government officials to the faculties in the college. He finally achieved his dream to becoming rich.On the other side, Ragav succeeds in his exams becomes a journalist and starts his own newsletter called Revolution 2020 in which he publishes an article about the Ganga Treatment Scam and proves that Shukla is a corrupt man. Aarthi is caught between the loves of both her friends, switches from one to another due to the twists that arises in the story. The three friends then resolve the ending where in Aarti gets married to Ragav whereas Gopal paves way for their happy future life.Though almost many readers disliked the ending of Aarti getting married to Ragav , I wish to differ from this .Gopal getting Aarti would never would have made Gopal feel bad about his corrupted life on the contrary ,it would have made Gopal win after all his corrupted activities and that is not Revolution 2020 story plot was for. We must remember we have always inculcated in belief in our very old good cliché: Only Truth will win.
