Thanks to All for Coming Close

First of all, SORRY for making so long post.

Knocking the door locked at outside
softness of the fingers burning in the factories
Speaking to the one dead in himself
hope of expectation dying at roundabout
such things really meant to only one person who survive in. Doesn't matter how close we go, we are always miles step away from reality. The thing which is clear to the person is always blur to ourselves. Though many of us are broad minded and very sensitive with our heart but go for the one which is very humble to our souls. Same thing is with me, when I spend my life with the books and only books. Plenty of novels I went through this year and there are very few which left footsteps in my mind and obviously touched my heart. Every writer is best in himself but it is only reader who tells him how much successful he has been. There are different types of writers among which few write for passion, few write for their loved ones, few write for money, few write for fame, and rests enjoy the scenario and beat of life instead going head or toe of any balderdash.
When somebody asks my favourite book, I really find myself confused and struck somewhere in the stories which I really lived when reading. Weather it was Child/God by Ketan Bhagat or Paradise Lost and Regained by Ratnadip Acharya or any other, every story is unique in its way and really touching.
I pay my utmost thanks to all the writers for writing such amazing books, meanwhile your determination is always admired at my end. Doesn't matter how much distance between us is, a feeling of lingering chit-chit is much enough to heal the worse mood.
Now lets come to the topic...

Reviews on "Riding God's Axe: Train Journeys Across God's Own Country"

Review Point: 3.5 out 5
Author: Siva Sadasivan
Publisher: Leadstart Publishing
Genre: Non-fiction/Travel/Memoir
ISBN: 978-93-52017-64-7
Pages: 162
Book Type: Hardcover

As subtitle tells, it is a real life experience of writer in throughout the South India specially Kerala state. He narrates his life and experience from the very beginning of time when one starts to remember things for future and look back from future. The Island express, The Tea Garden Express, The Poorna Express, The Nilambur Passenger and many other trains which writer has spent a time of his life. Meanwhile the places he had visited earlier are also depicted in the book. To know what he has felt and how touched the originality of things which millions missed in their life, go through the Riding God's Axe.

Strength of the Book:
South India in itself holds a damn natural beauty and writer has take equal benefit of this. Describing the experience very beautifully writer takes readers in an unending journey which is full of experience and unique moments.Writer has described the beauty of the places wherever he traveled via train. The way of narration makes readers familiar to the places which they never been. Somewhere interesting dialogues of people are also included. Throughout the Journey, he met many people and talked with them, all he has put in the book. The Parasuram Express section is written in a different perspective which is really impressive. To talk about people sitting at the door of running train, chikan biryani from NVRR, the place kozhikode, Spanish friends, support to Barcelona and all others put smile over face of reader. Writer has also described his family in his jounery as his sister, his father. He shows father instillation train for love in him.

Weakness of the Book:
Sometimes book becomes boring as writer depicts a scenario too long. People who expect it have it a proper story with a justified ending would surely be disappoint. Somewhere writer has collapsed the things which arise the interest of reader, i.e., The Poorna Express. The way of beginning is little weak.

Being unique creation of its type, this book is really an admirable pick up. Starting from the very earlier time of life, this book gives immense pleasure to readers in each and every chapter. Writer has tried much possible ways to make readers more familiar with the places and time which he had happened once. Besides, the things which everybody notices but ignore at the eleventh hour is presented very beautifully. Title and cover page completely suits to the story, also going with the same pace, this book will be loved by the travel-reader as the interest is maintained.

Side Point: There are two ways to present a book of journey:
With story
without story

In with story, writer makes a fictional plot for the book and narrates his experience of the place by adhering to the consistency of the story while making equal interest of the readers and bringing characters to the place reasonably. 
Example: From Afar by Frank Scozzari

This book is a non fiction creation and extracted from the real life experience in the valley of nature. Meeting with the beat of originality, this book makes readers travel throughout the place they never visited.

Review Point:
3.5 out of 5

Reviews on "Love Is Blind"

Review Point: 3.5 out 5
Authoress: Tasneem Sara
Genre: Fiction/Romance
ISBN: 978-81-8253-492-6
Pages: 142
Edition: First

Samay is a teenager and lives in Bombay with his friend Ray. Both work in salon owned by Ray. Samay's mother lives alone in village. Her husband went so far from both of them to serve the world with his goodness. But he often sends letter to his son. Samay does not like his father at all. He reads his letter with no mood. Here at salon, once Samay meets Kena. Kena is simple and beautiful girl but physically disabled. He is dazzled by her simplicity and then slightly they come close. Kena tells him each and every secret of her life one by one and asked his too. Ray gives him complete freedom to co-operate with his salon and life with Kena. Then one day, when Samay visits Kena's home, after their dinner everything gets changed. Samay finds himself lifeless. What happened to Samay? What Kena did or how would she save him? Will Samay meet his father ever and love him? To know more, read "Love Is Blind".

Strength of the Book:
Amazing start. Book will bring readers in the valley of love. Emotions are described beautifully. Character justification is proper. Writer has touched the desire of readers and pinched them nicely with the proper use of literature. Dialogue writing is much effective. The way of narration makes readers to be more close with the life of Samay and Kena. Story goes on the same pace and doesn't let readers bore throughout the narration. Though, book is written with the male view but equal importance is given to male and female characters viz. Kena and Samay's mother. Ending is good and really different from other love stories.

Few Lines from the Book:
I wished I could reach out to her, and pull her in my arms. My feelings had nothing to do with her beauty. Undoubtedly, she was beautiful, like the ones who could melt you down in your seat. She had a magnetic face, with a speck of practical wisdom, hair that covered the swell of her breasts and skin the colour of cream. Her personality was full of charisma, but it was her simplicity that I found alluring. At times, when I stared at her, I found her a perfect epitome of sheer beauty.

Weakness of the Book:
In the last quarter of the book, story becomes boring and with lack of interest. Dialogue writing doesnt seem worthy for this part. Kena character is defined in such a way that she is normal person while it is earlier told that she is physically disabled. It makes readers confuse.

Authoress Tasleem Sara has presented a pure love story with the bites of romance emotions peep out from the heart. Each and everything is shaped perfectly to give book the best taste to meet the desire of readers. Title completely suits to the story, while cover page could me more impressive. On the other hand, readers may feel hatred for writer to give such different end to the book. Kena character in the book will make readers to fall in love with her.

Review Point:
3.5 out of 5

Genre: Fiction/Love/Short stories
ISBN: 978-81-8253-553-4
Pages: 139
Edition: First

About the Book:
Book is a collection of 22 short and micro stories and equal poems. Giving emphasis on the importance of life, this book touches different aspects of human life. Consisting of matured stories, this book is targeted to the age group from 16 to 60 or above. Connecting the dots of life of all types of persons, this book is presented with the blend of emotions. Two more authors Zarfasheen Zia and Charly Priest have contributed in the book with their story A Human Connection and The Blogger respectively.

Strength of the Book:
All 22 stories are mind blowing and never heard before. Being unique of their types, these stories are extracted from the corridors of our life. From the very beginning, books maintains the interest of readers and does make them bore even for a while. Each segment of human feeling is present in the book. Also, Story alignment is amazing. Each story ends with the sweet poem which is closely related to the story in a different manner. No grammatical issue is present and book is properly mixed with the US and UK English style, which gives a different view to readers to have it peacefully. Dialogue writing is really good and much effective. Also, it has proper taste of literature.

Few lines from the Book:

It was a moment of eternal peace for her. She had died the day she was sold and was nothing more than one of the living dead, satisfying hungry souls. It was her time to gain the final freedom.

She was getting accustomed to her life alone. A smile adored her beautiful face and the thunder seemed to rhyme with her music. Her sleek and slender fingers were elegantly moving on the black and white piano keys.
                                                                                                                                        -(Let's go home)

I kept looking at his face, waiting for those big blue eyes to flutter open and his lips to curl up in that infectious smile which had ability to light up the whole world. My heart longed for him to move...even just a I would know that he was alive, that he would make it through this. But time stood still just like his body.
All that was left of him was his blood, now mixed with dirt and dust.
How was it possible? He was right there, alive and well and now he was gone? Even though we never talked, we still connected. I wish I had more time to dream with him, go to know him better and may be plan our future together.
                                                                                              -(A Human Connection) by Zarfasheen Zia

Weakness of the Book:
In few chapters, book has typo errors. Presentation could be more effective. Book lacks consistency from the beginning to the end. Cover page is not that much impressive.

This is one of the unique and impressive ways to present collection of short stories. This book is best spice for readers who are fond of reading but get less time. Language is simple but attractive. This book is perfect sum up of the creativity, imagination, hard work of authoress as well as a crisp of emotions, feelings, touching moments and humanity. It promises to readers an admirable read without any bang of boredom. Authoress has made characters alive in her narration. Book is not centralized on the characters of a particular age group but roams around the different stages of ages of different persons who are somewhere among us.

Few outstanding stories in the book are:
  1. You will hold my heart forever
  2. A Moment
  3. A Final goodbye
  4. Sandcastles
  5. Feel the rain
  6. Goodbye
  7. Mother
  8. A Human Affection

4.25 out of 5
