Sense and Syllogism: Logic in Life - Aparna Tulpule - Review



Sense and Syllogism: Logic in Life is a book authored by Aparna Tulpule. She calls herself a logic enthusiast and the purpose of writing this book is to share her opinions with others. Well, once you start reading the book from the beginning, you can seldom stop yourself from believing that the work you are currently reading is highly interesting, engaging as well as compelling. Though the book can certainly be categorised as a non-fiction work or even academic work, there is no lack of interesting content - I would say it's way better than reading the regular romantic novels that have made me older before time!

Kahaniwala - Hindi - Sandeep Dobriyal - Book Review



Kahaniwala by Sandeep Dobriyal is the latest book I have read this year. Published not very long ago, this is a collection of short stories written in contemporary Hindi. There are 9 stories in this collection but the title focuses more on the storyteller rather than the stories - Kahaniwala. The hashtag at the beginning of the title confirms that it is meant to be enjoyed by the youths. So, I did read all the stories and I have my experiences to share with the readers of Book Reviews Web.

13 Untitled and Weird Poems - Alok Mishra - Book Review




The poetry collection by Alok Mishra, 13 Untitled and Weird Poems, has been a lingering read for me. It demanded mental exercise and I complied. However, even after that, it remained a mystery to a great extent. What could the messages mean? What did the intriguing plots suggest?  Cryptic poems really leave your mind in a mess and getting out of it becomes very difficult because different people view poetry differently. Unlike novel where a common consensus might be possible, a common consensus in poetry is remotely impossible. So, how did I like the book 13 Untitled and Weird Poems? Let me share that with you all.

Crime Thriller Fiction in India - opportunities for new authors

In Indian English fiction, the sudden rise of readers' interest in crime thriller fiction has left many authors answerless because the demand of the readers is not very easy to cater. Readers have become smart, conscious and also very careful about what they read in the name of fiction. It is no more the age of 90s when movie producers and directors used the same theme of revenge and romance time and again and the audience still did not get bored of it. Today, if you repeat something, you lose your charm and readers won't think about reading your work again. In short, it has become too challenging for the authors to produce entirely new crime thriller literature every time they write something.

Self-publishing is the new cool in India - Opinion




The rise of self-publishing in India has left many doors open for the authors who want to exhibit their writing skills in front of a wide range of audience in the country. The traditional publishers have almost made it impossible for the emerging authors to get published with a mark of honour (so-called). And therefore, emerging but ambitious authors rather opt for self-publishing and look for their space in the writing industry and hence in the readers' Vanity Fair.
