Review – Undilevered letters 

I always have a special love for handwritten letters, no matter how time has changed, so much of technology in our lives, yet the smell of hand written letter, the love and excitement cannot match with digital letters.

This seriously,  is unique concept and totally different plot I have ever read. Good work J sir. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. 

The story revolves around Aron the postman, and Sara, and few more characters. Aron is postman, who went knocking doors to deliver one happiness. The story then shifts to twenty years, when they are relocating, and suddenly finds the bag where lot of letters are yet to be delivered by him. no matter how long it took for him to deliver letters, at the end he reached happiness, content, guilt, and love to the doors.  He knew his mistake and even after long 20 years, someone would have just refused to complete delivering those letters assuming the change of address, or might the recipient received another letter. Yet he delivered those letters. He knew the innocence of relationship, that he didn’t wanted to snatch away and feel guilty by the end.

Good work.
Beautiful cover, the title totally suits, easy language and good narrative skills.

 BLURB:-

Akshara is left devastated by her mother’s death and spends most of her time in solitude at the local park. One day, she meets a man named Harry, who, to help ease some of her pain, recounts to her a story about the miraculous reunion of a young woman and her dead boyfriend. The story makes Akshara hopeful that she can perhaps see her mother again. But she soon realizes that Harry isn’t what he seems to be. Even the characters of his story seem dubious, almost unreal. So what is he hiding? And why? Is there any truth to his story at all? In this darkly suspenseful romance mystery, Akshara is left facing a truth that will make her doubt not just Harry but also herself.

My verdict :

The story revolves around a small twelve year old girl Akshara, who is deprived from her mother’s death. Nobody can love you like Mother, care like her and know you better than her. Akshara tries to seek help and love from her father, but doesn’t get. She seeks love from her maid, that’s how today’s children are bond with with thier maids and drivers, they have very close connection and understanding. When Akshara is living a loner life in solitude, she walks down to park every day. She happened to meet a guy named Harry. Whom she gell well with, where she find her pace. HARRY narrates her a story, and she gets flowed with the emotions. With the story she knows the grief that she is connected with. Can dead be back? Who is she? Who is Harry? How will the story receive further? 

The cover of the book is designed very beautifully, with all the vibrant colours, one can’t really stop looking at the book and flip pages. The tittle goes well with the story. The narration and language is good and understanding and editing has also been taken good care of. 

The story is interesting, you get yourself involved in no time as you go with it, the author hasn’t dragged any situation and the book goes fast paced. 

Hence, I would rate 3.5/5 to this book.

Review : Ashvamedha : The Game of Power

Book Name- Ashvamedha : The Game of Power

Author- Aparna Sinha

Genre- Political Thriller 

Publisher- Srishti Publications 

Pages- 214

Price- ₹195

BLURB- 

“You have to dethrone a powerful man to become the most powerful. I was itching to defeat the single most powerful person, but there wasn’t any. I was left with only one choice — to create one.”

Little does Ashwin Jamwal know that the last twenty-five years of his life have been controlled by a master manipulator, who wanted to make him the most powerful man on earth, though for a reason! Ashwin steps up to take oath as the youngest Prime Minister of India and is unknowingly thrown into a vortex of power and authority as the entire world is threatened by a faceless enemy — Hades.

The world starts to look up to Ashwin as the savior, but he was just a pawn, reared only to be sacrificed in the end.

A story of greed, lies, deceptions, manipulations and corruption, Ashvamedha is a thriller revolving around the infamous game of power in a maddening bid to seek absolute control.

Review-

Ashvamedha is a political thriller which is penned down by Aparna Sinha. 

Sinha with her debut novel serves us a tale of power with intense character and blockbuster storyline. This book has every element which can make you feel like you’re watching a movie. 

Book Title and Cover- The Title is interesting and appropriate with the book. It gives us insight about the content. The Cover is not-attractive and could be improved. 

The Blurb is short, crisp and interesting

Language and Narration- Writing style of Aparna is easy to follow. Language is simple crisp and easy to comprehend. Narration is done well. Quotes from Yajur Veda and a poem in the book is cherry on the top.

Content and Plot- Plot of the book is fresh and gives you something new to read. Unlike many suspense thriller, this book deals with many social odds. 

Storyline is interesting and flows smoothly with twists and turns throughout the book. 

With unpredictable ending and engaging subplots, story keeps moving smoothly with good pace. However some readers can need time to get adjust with the pace and storyline but after that story flows smoothly till the end. 

Along with thriller there is love angle between our characters which is written beautifully. Friendship between Ashwin and Arun is touching and was fun to read. 

Rating-

Book Title and Cover- 4/5 

Language and Narration- 4/5

Content and Plot- 3.5/5

Final Rating- 4/5

I would recommend this book to every thriller reader out there especially political thriller lovers.

My verdict :

Sarfaraz is the lead character of the book, the story line is based on the mentality of the people, biased, racist, blaming another culture, Creed &  caster amidst staying In the same country, breathing the same air, and living under the same sky. 

Sarfaraz makes attempts to fall in love with person, he tries looking for love, but slowly realises what love is, and whom he really love, his story begins with love, when he is almost happy, there comes big mess following his caste and Creed and heap of Blames for being belonged the caste Muslim. 

He decides to leave coimbatore, when series of bomb blasts take place, he leaves to Sharjah where he is very keen on his own life, dreams and passion that carries him entirely to make him better being. 

The book contains lot of emotional attachments, feeling gliding up with the story.
