Book Review: I, Duryodhana... By Pradeep Govind

Book Review: I, Duryodhana...  By Pradeep Govind

Hello Lovely Readers,

I am back again with an another book review. The book today I will share here, will surely be in my favourite list of book of this year.
The name of the book is 'I, Duryodhana' by an Indian author Pradeep Govind.


Plot Summary: Awaiting emancipation through,the embrace of death, Duryodhana, the fallen Kaurava prince reminisces about the past as he narrates his version of the incidents that unfolded in his life, starting from his birth as a lump of flesh.
Truth is frail and often vulnerable to distortion as history tends to favour the victors. This saga of pride, loyalty and heroism interlaced with deceit, hypocrisy and betrayal, leaves the readers with that one vital question, ' Who is to blame?'



Genre: Fiction

Language: English

Publisher: Om Books International

No.Of Pages: 344

Price: Rs 295/-

Format: Paperback

My Review:
Starting with the beautiful cover, very apt for the title. Gives a hint that story might be something about a warrior or a powerful king in the battlefield... 

The story starts right from the birth of Duryodhana. The book is based on the Epic Indian tale of Mahabharata from Duryodhana point of view, which is very different and unique from the traditional story we have always heard.
I personally have never ever read or heard much of Duryodhana, so reading a story revolving around him was fun to read. It shows all the dynamics Of Hastinapur. The chemistry between the cousin brothers. The struggles and politics surrounding the title of 'Crown Prince Of Hastinapur..



It conveys a message that sometimes it is just the circumstances not the actions, that can portray some people good and some people in a bad light.

The book is enthralling with a great detailing. Each scene and character is well built and portrayed.
I did not found continuity breaking at any point of time.

Sometimes, these kind of books could feel heavy but this one is well balanced and comfortable to read. Pace is neither too fast nor too slow.


I must say the book is an adventure in itself and would highly like to recommend it. I totally loved reading it. The book feels well researched and well written.

Book Review: A Useful death By Sriram Chellapilla


Hello Lovely Readers,

Hope everyone is doing good.
Today I would be reviewing a book named as 'A Useful Death' by an Indian author Sriram Chellapilla.


Plot Summary: Aspiring actress Priya is dead. It's a suicide and rumour has it that Anil, son of politician and former Telgu movie superstar Mohan Krishna, drove her to it. Just another film industry scandal? Or something bigger, much bigger?
Partha, hired by Mohan Krishna's family to handle the crisis, thinks so. Why won't such a powerful father defend his son, Partha wonders. Is there an intra- family war? Whose interests are playing out in the media and on social media? Is a political game afoot or is this all connected to Mohan Krishna's own dubious past? And why are student unions getting involved?
Even as Partha and his associates, Seema and Harish, confront the ethics of being involved in a war with no heroes, they are drawn into a dangerous hunt. They must negotiate a tangled and vicious world to answer one question: a young woman is dead- to whom is her death useful?



Genre: Fiction

Language: English

Publisher: Westland Publications

Format: Paperback

No. Of Pages: 410

Price: Rs 399/-

My Review:
The story starts with a suicide of a struggling actress Priya. Soon after her death, rumors started to fume that Anil son of politician and former movie superstar Mohan Krishna is involved...
Is it suicide or a murder?
The book is definitely a good and interesting thriller to read. Story and the plot is quite engaging and full of twists and turns. It shows some of the ugly truth of our society...Be it in film industry or as a society as a whole...


Language is pretty simple and people with different age group can easily enjoy reading this. Fast read.Can be easily finished in a couple of days...

Overall a good thriller by an Indian author.

Review: 
I really liked the way author has shared his journey of life as a common man..
Being born in a middle class family in India comes with a lot of expectations. In the time author was born, mostly career was chosen by the family. A kid simply has to follow a life path pre decided for him..But what if someone wants something else ?
Will a common man in India will always be a part of the crowd and follow pre decided destiny..Or is it in the hands of a common man to make his life uncommon...
Book is like his diary full of his memories from different stages of his life...Childhood, teenager, starting of his career..
Author has made a very honest attempt and kept the details and experiences realistic.
People who belong to the same group will even enjoy it more.
A nice read!

The name of the book is 'The Girl With Blue Eyes' by an Indian author Vaiibhav Nigam.




Plot Summary: It was love at first sight for Armaan when he saw Tanisha.Despite being exact opposites of each other, they manage to keep their relationship alive. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and they develop compatibilty issues.
In an unexpected turn of events, he comes upon an accident. Though he survives, the faint memory of a striking face with blue eyes flashed right before he collapsed and the accident haunts him forever.
Months later, Armaan has a chance to encounter with the same 'Girl with Blue Eyes' and unknowingly, he is lured into an affair he cannot deny! While he makes all the attempts to hide this from Tanisha, things start to get out-of-control as he is now in a dual relationship. As events unfold, he realizes this mysterious 'Girl with Blue Eyes' comes with a lot of surprises.

Genre: Fiction

Language: English

No. Of Pages: 203

Price: Rs 225/-

About The Author: Vaiibhav Nigam is an author and a speaker. When it comes to writing he likes to write engaging romantic thrillers that keeps the readers at the edge of their seats. He believes that everything has a story if we really pay attention.



My Review: The Prologue of the book is really interesting and a little different. It will surely make you turn the pages instantly.

It is a romantic thriller but with lots of twists and turns, which makes it different from the regular romantic books.

The protaganist Armaan falls in love with Tanisha right away the first time he saw her. Feelings started to develop and very soon they were in a relationship. Tanisha seems to be a perfect girl for him, decent, shy and stable.
His destiny took a sharp turn when he met with an accident and before he zoned out, a woman's face with Blue eyes flashed right before him whom he does not know.



Things started to get normal, but then suddendly one day at mall he spotted that same girl with those Blue eyes whom he saw in his accident. She was Rutvi and she was exactly opposite of Tanisha. Rutvi was bold, confident and attractive. Very soon Armaan and Rutvi become friends and were having an affair..

So, you need to read the book further to know why Armaan cheated on his girlfriend Tanisha. Did he got caught? Will he regret his decision to have a relationship with Rutvi...And why did he saw her at the time of his accident just before collapsing.. Who actually is Rutvi??
The book is a ride with suspense..

The language is pretty simple. For me personally it was an average read.
The ending of the book is really interesting and full of mystery.
Good one time read. Definitely a Fast read.
