4.0 out of 5 stars Good and quick Read, October 23, 2012

the book 12 Precious Anecdotes From Life by Payal Roy is a book of short stories that are connected by the characters within it. though this book is not dramatic or flashy it is a wonderful read. Each story is a look at a moment in time and is written so that not only do the characters learn something about them self and life but you as the reader looking in also get to come away with a lesson or two. i have to say also this was one of those books that for me was what i consider to be a quick read under two hours from start to finish.Over all a good book and worth a little of your time to go read and enjoy. Two thumbs up for this one.

I found this short book to be a delight. It was interesting to see how the characters interrelated to one another and the truths behind the stories can not be denied.

The truths should be kept in the forefront of all our minds and live in our hearts.

Hello friends and book lovers,

You may know by now that this blog is my personal author blog , as well as a book review blog.

I sometimes review books at my own leisure, when I get some free time. Also I review those books that I really want to give a review of.

Here is one such book that I have reviewed today.

where_secret_lies

Book title : WHERE THE SECRET LIES

Genre :  Fiction – Suspense , Thriller, Romance, Reincarnation

Author : Malika Gandhi

Amazon Kindle Store : http://www.amazon.com/Where-the-Secret-Lies-ebook/dp/B00BUOWFBC

My review : 5 out of 5 starsI recommend this Ebook for your kindle or reading on your IPad, tablets or other android devices

Review in detail : Author Malika Gandhi’s suspense/romantic fiction blended with a touch of historical fiction and contemporary Indian culture of the modern age, is a run away success for people who love to read such genres.

I loved every bit of the novel. There is suspense, there is thrill, there are chills, there is unpredictability, there is steamy passion of romance, there is action, there is a mystery, there is culture clash — all in all an impressive concoction of all the ready ingredients that one would like to get in a story which would make it a fast paced and enjoyable read.

For me, Where The Secret Lies was a wonderful read and it ran like a movie in my head. I don’t want to divulge much of the story here in the review.

The story focuses on two female lead protagonists and how their lives changed from living in the comfort zone to falling into an inferno of change, sudden shock and realizing that life would never be the same again. The first female lead — Anjali, is from the Indian independence era of 1947 when India was going through the extremely difficult, sorrowful and troubled days of partition, and the second lead — Arianna, is a second generation British-Indian teenager visiting her ancestral town in 2012.

When Arianna (the modern female lead) arrives at her cousin’s ancestral house (a Haveli) in Lucknow to participate in the great big Indian Wedding, she never expects what she’d face in the days leading up to the wedding. She has an experience of a life time, makes new friends and helps to unlock a mournful and dreadful secret that had plagued and haunted the Haveli for a very long time.
Their interesting and intriguing experiences have been deftly written and displayed before the readers’ eyes in separate chapters. These chapters move back and forth from the past (1947) into the future (2012). So, I had no trouble relating to the chapters as I was taken in an out of the past now and then through these interesting chapters.

The dialogues are simple and easy to understand. The author had expertly woven her vocabulary towards construction of simple sentences that show a stark difference in the throw of the dialect and thought process of people (second generation Indians) brought up in Britain and Indians in India.

However, it is heartening to see that no matter how far away from their roots the non resident Indians are, they always return to visit India at some point in their life, getting rejuvenated by their ancient culture and accepting both the cultures of their current country as well as their ancestral country.

All in all I give 5 out of 5 stars to this mesmerizing and thrilling story and congratulate the author for creating such a wonderful book for the readers!

 


Dear friends, it has been a while since I have posted in this blog. The joy of reading is such that once we begin reading an exciting and an interesting book, we don’t seem to notice how time flies by. This love for reading inspired me to write books on my own.

I have begun to take small steps into the vibrant and brilliantly creative world of writing and authorship and every moment of this world has been a precious learning experience for me. It takes a long time to complete a novel. While I am writing one, I wanted to take a break during this interesting and ardous task. Therefore, I wrote 3 books to keep my thoughts flowing and garner new ideas for my novel through these 3 books.

My journey into the wonderful world of writing began with the first book on poetry and travel photography. This was followed by a collection of short stories (I will have a separate post about the short stories collection) and a second Ebook on poetry.

Friendship and Life

Friendship and Life

Poetry Collection

Poetry Collection

This is my second published Ebook which primarily revolves round the vibrant theme of fantasy, surrealism and converges into reality in many of the poems. I conceptualized and made the cover myself.

To name a few, there are interesting poems about Phoenix-the mythical bird; Sphere-a repository of power that fell in wrong hands; Rains-a mythical tale of how a farmer kept his resolve and fought his thirst; Tale of four seasons; Halo-a mystic aura; Love is everywhere and many more.

Thus, one moment the readers would find themselves in a magical and vibrant world of fantasy and infinite imagination through enchanting stories, and the next moment the boundary of fantasy would merge with reality.

This Ebook can be downloaded from Smashwords and Amazon stores. You can FREE DOWNLOAD the first 30% of this Ebook from Smashwords!

FREEBIE dates : 08/24, 08/25 and 08/26

A warm welcome to all visitors stopping by my blog. I am an author and a poet and have been writing and publishing books in not so common genres. Why? Coz, I see loads of YA, Fantasy and Paranormal series of books in the bookshelves of several online stores everyday and it seems as if they would nearly overflow off the shelf.

That’s why I chose to write in not so common genres– as merely selling the books has never been my agenda. I always looked out for topics that would create an underlying message within my stories, and let us rethink and revalue moments, facts and situations that would be precious to us always. Hence I present you with my latest collection of 12 short stories titled 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life. Download it for FREE today and over this weekend of Aug 24, Aug 25 and Aug 26.

FREE Ebook at Amazon Stores : Download this Ebook to your Kindle or Kindle reading Apps for PC, Laptop or IPad for Free.

“As the name of the E-book suggests the poems/poetry has been very soulfully depicted in each of the poems written by Payal Roy. She has been extremely thoughtful and sincere in her application of vocabulary to express her creative thoughts. This is a wonderful rendition!
Looking forward to see many more of them(poems, prose) coming! ”

star star star star star
“Wonderfully written poems..Each poem has its own character…I just loved reading those beautifully expressed poetry.. It is a great piece of poetry !!
Looking forward to read more poems by Payal Roy….”
“In her piece titled “A Child in You,” she encourages the reader to quit being so bored/boring and to remember that you only live once and should enjoy every moment of it. The poem invites you to remember all of the simple joys of your childhood running on green lawns and seeing the magic in nature.
Many of the poems include elements of nature such as sky, grass, flowers, and trees and most of them talk about life being precious and to have hope and enjoy the beautiful world by appreciating it each and every day. Among the inspiring photos are images of the sunset over Lotus Temple in India, a beach in France, the countryside in Prague, a mountain in Spain, clouds in Poland and flowers in the Netherlands.
In “Light,” Roy contemplates light being a flicker of hope, a true spirit, a lack of ignorance, or a thirst for knowledge. In this collection of more than 40 poems, you’ll find pieces titled, “Reach Out,” “Colours,” “Saga of Life,” “A Never Ending Hope,” and “In a Nutshell” among many others.”
