Imagine waking up one day and remembering nothing about your past life. Imagine going to sleep at night, knowing that your mind will erase everything that you did today. A person with no past! Scary, isn’t it? What is even scarier? When you don’t recognize the person you wake up next to, who claims to be your dear husband.
This book has been praised over and over by the people around me. I am a big fan of Indian mythology and I love reading about Maha-Bharatha and Ramayana. So, when someone told me about the plot of this book, I felt like grabbing it right away. The journey of Shiva, born as a human, turning into a God, on the basis of his Karma, sounded extremely intriguing to me. It was also a big decision as this book is the first one in the Shiva Trilogy series, so finishing a series was equally important. What are my final thoughts on the book? Amazing plot! Disappointing content!
This is the only book by Rohinton Mistry that I’ve read till date and it surely climbed up to my top three favorite books of all times slot. It is absolutely magnificent! I know, I know, you might have heard that this is quite the depressing novel and might even think that I am a sad, sad person. On the contrary, I am very positive but I don’t shy away from showing my love for melancholic novels.
Greetings fellow readers! Here is my first blog EVER! I am a little nervous and super-excited! Hope you like what I write.
Ten years ago, I read Khaled Hosseini’s masterpiece for the first time and I just could not put it down. The book has carved a special place in my heart. I cannot even begin to explain what this book means to me.
You know the time when you get into the skin of the characters and their lives so badly, that you forget it’s just a story. Every character written in the book adds up to the story line. It is always the first book I recommend to people who ask me for suggestions and I believe that if you haven’t read this book yet, you have GOT to pick it up right NOW.
