I seem to lack imagination at the moment. Bear with me, as I sift through my thoughts.

Book Review: The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

Superb follow up to a slightly boring and long 'A Cuckoo's Calling'. The plot is tighter and fast paced and you cannot keep the book down until you've finished. Must read.

Rating : 4/5

Book Review: The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman

The second installment in the His Dark Materials trilogy, the book continues Lyra's adventures to find the truth about Dust and her father.  An excellent sequel to 'Northern Lights'. Wish they had made a better movie though. Must read if you love science fiction+ fantasy genre.

Rating: 4/5

Book Review: The Dark Half by Stephen King

Intriguing, engaging  yet predictable plot. There is a certain pattern to Stephen King's writing which gets a tad bit monotonous if you read too many of his books. A good read if you want pass time during long travels.

Rating : 3/5

Book Review: The Shining by Stephen King

One cannot compare this particular book with the movie. Both superb pieces of unique storytelling. Had watched the movie long back and wanted to read the book, mainly to see how different was it. Loved the movie. Loved the book even more. Go read if you haven't already.

Rating: 5/5
