Must say I have done some serious reading in the past few days. I could read some books I have longed to read.
This started with the thinner ones 'Five Point Someone' and 'One Night at the Call Center' by Chetan Bhagat.
It surely was a trip down the memory lane...back to college types.
Then came others like 'Bloodline - Sydney Sheldon' ,'Rich Dad Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki' and Dan Browns Digital Fortress.
Dan Brown puts forth the technical details in an interesting manner. A good techno thriller.
Bloodline was good, but after a point the same old Sydney Sheldon stuff is too much to handle, the story seems to be wandering from its path.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a good financial guide for a layman. Must read for us who have started our careers and savings are a must.
Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged...too good! Though I didnt like it as much as Fountain Head, the characters and the storyline keep you hooked. Who is John Galt?
I also read a book on 'The Story of the INA - SA Ayer'. This provided a good insight at the activities of the INA. Moreover as I am now at Kolkatta, I guess the Netaji spirit is fresh in me. Then came a book on skin and hair, an average book citing medical facts in simple words.
'A House for Mr. Biswas - V.S. Naipaul'. This is my first book written by V.S.Naipaul, I like the style of writing. The rawness in the characters and the details of the scene are worth mentioning.
'Train to Pakistan - Khushwant Singh'. It captures all the emotions of the partition scene in very few words. The last sentence has left an impact on me...it goes somewhat like this...the train went over him and to Pakistan.
I also read 'The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho'for the third time. Everytime I read this I discover a new dimension hidden in the words. Its an all time inspiration for me.
Looking forward to more reading...
