Weapon of Vishnu

The plot is very good and able to hold the reader's interest. Some resemblence to Harry Potter at times could be felt. There were a few places when me is used instead of him. A round of editing is required. But over all, an enthralling plot and I would definitely want to read further

The age is not mentioned, but I meant him to be a child. Having two children of my own, I think that children are capable of logical thinking at very early ages and of processing information. No, it is no palace. It is an ashram

Realization, Enroute

Geetha Krishnan

The writing style is good and the chapters are paced well. Grammatical errors should be taken care of. But over all, I did not feel a compelling need to find out what happens next. It is a very light read and I could not relate it with the synopsis.

Geetha Krishnan

Three chapters are not enough, especially for the kind of book you are trying to write. Because it is a journey of self realizatiin, some build up should be there to the characters and their background info. So by the time the story starts, the three chapters are almost over. However, your style is good and I feel once the story gets going, it will be a captivating read. All the best. :)

LIONESS ON TWO FEET

Geetha Krishnan

I understand that this is an average guy's story, but does that mean that the writing should be this bad? The author states average guys get more fun, but the reader is left to yawn. Obviously the author's idea of fun and that of the readers is quite at loggerheads. Chapters are too long, narrative is disjointed, it looks like the author has simply written whatever came into his head and did not even re read. The protagonist seems too indifferent to the reader to whom he's supposed to be talking

The plot is good and has the potential to hold the reader spell bound, but the language is pedestrian. The way it is written now, it can't hold a reader's interest for long. A good editor and some polishing could turn this to a bestseller

The Wooden Horse

The story premise is good and the growth of the plot is interesting enough, but at times the narration fails to convey the desired impact. It reads like a newspaper story than a story. But i would still recommend it because it has a good plot and development
