Book Review- Dangle by Sutapa Basu

Chak Chak chak chak….the sound of the chopper was deafening as it came closer to the glass window of that hotel room on nineteenth floor. She could see the pilot grinning mischievously.

When a plot starts on that note, you can be sure of an interesting storyline ahead. Dangle by renowned author, Sutapa Basu, is an intriguing tale that makes you sit up straight at many junctures and also keeps you glued to the book throughout. Having teased the reader’s adrenaline in the first few pages itself, she makes sure that it is racing all through those 200-odd pages.

Book Review- She Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

I have become an absolute Zeenat Mahal fan since I picked up Haveli(Read its review here). Since then I have read The Contract  and Twice Upon a Time (a novella couplet with Jazz Singh). And I just couldn’t have enough of Zee Mahal, so I picked up this one. And the magic continued. Adorable characters in a totally lovable, almost fairy tale like, story. Finished this one in a few hours.

Book Review- Patang by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay

The word “unputdownable” was definitely conceived for this book. Because when you start with this one, there is no way you could put this down until the last page. Interestingly, I was turning pages one after the other but as climax came close, I started wishing that this should not end. So when I say this was good, believe me this was. Thrilling, spine-chilling, intelligent- one of the best murder mysteries I have read in a long time.

Paromita Goswami’s maiden novel Shamsuddin’s Grave is built upon the sensitive issues of illegal migration and their struggle to live in a land often shattered by natural and social calamities. While these illegal immigrants face a harsh treatment by authorities and society, sometimes they also come across a considerate soul who is willing to help without being judgmental about them. Shamsuddin’s Grave is a story of struggle, humanity, patience and redemption.
