How many months have I taken to finish this book? I can’t even remember. Blame my hectic work hours or my laziness, it was difficult to take out time to read. In fact, I didn’t even touch my kindle for a WHOLE WEEK because I was so exhausted at the end of the day. This book also must share some part of the blame since it started on such a boring note. The chapters? Longer than ever.
One book. 112 pages. And a timeless read. I am so emotional moved by this book, I can hardly write this review. I am forced to love John Steinbeck and his art. Who says only fat books can make an impact?
A fine-dining restaurant located in Baner which serves delicious food and awesome cocktails! My first encounter with Orion hadn’t been a great experience. Reason? I showed up on a Saturday night which is their DJ night where the music is quite loud for the likes of us. So for me and my friends, the experience wasn’t a memorable one. But when I was invited by Team Orion to a food-tasting session, I couldn’t say no because I had already heard raving reviews about their food. So here’s how my perception changed about Orion:
A small group of people invited for the food tasting at FC Grill House, yet it turned out to be a fun evening!
FC Grill House, a restaurant located bang-on FC road, above Oriental Bank of Commerce, not difficult to locate. Before you open the door to this restaurant, you can hear the music buzzing beyond the walls. And when the door opens, voila! You can see that the place is jam packed on Friday evenings or weekends! I was invited here on a Friday evening and Sabali was performing Live for the audience. I have to admit, although I am not much of a Live music fan kind of person, the music slowly grew on me. Sabali not only plays various kinds of songs but adds their own version of Rap (some good, some meh!) to the songs they play. Kind of keeps you guessing, doesn’t it?
Agatha Christie. What can I say about her? A mastermind, truly. She was the one who first introduced me to the world of crime, needless to say, I have been hooked ever since. Her work is still considered to be an epitome of sheer perfect crime novels. Every book she has written is mind-boggling. I have always read her books at such a fast pace, my heart racing, reading them at a stretch because I couldn’t put them down. But this one tops them all! It is an extraordinary, gripping and timeless novel!
Every bit as shocking and dark, Martin has done an outstanding job with A Storm of Swords and I loved every bit of it. How does he come up with this kind of story? I cannot begin to fathom what must go through his mind when he pens down his words and brews them into a beautiful saga. Every bit as unpredictable, definitely better than the TV series!
