Chase the wind – a must-read

I really enjoyed Chase the wind by E.V. Thompson. It is set in a mining town, and deals with the conditions of life of the miners and the owners. (The setting reminded me of a movie I’d watched in my French class, Germinal).  Definitely worth reading.


Six months with an older woman – worth reading

I came across it in the library, and found it readable. It was humorous here and there, and some parts of it made me think. Worth reading once.

Sophie’s world

I read “Sophie’s world” a few days ago. I still don’t know how I felt about it. If you want a quick recap of Western Philosophy, then this is for you. But I lost track of the story and was lost by the end of it all.

It reminded me of “The Hours”, which I finished without really knowing what happened or with/to whom.

The Mine – worth a read

I just finished reading The Mine by Arnab Ray. It’s readable, though I prefer his other book, “May I hebb your attention pliss?”. Definitely worth a read

Shogun – a delight

Just finished James Clavell’s Shogun. And loved it. I read more than 600 pages just yesterday, and just couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Unputdownable, to me at least. Definitely recommended.

(Thanks to my friend AP for suggesting it to me)
