Favourite Quotes

“Up to a point a man's life is shaped by environment, heredity and movement and changes in the world about him; then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow."

While at the moment - formatting is an issue - The story seems to be partly an growing-up years memoir. The charm of the book is also tremendously helped by the wittiness of the writer, especially when tackling a plot line that is basically going to lead into a problem (tying the rakhi). The characters too appear to be real and believable, and make you empathetic towards the authors travails : of a new girl, in a new school.
Overall, I judge the book to be of a high standard.

I like what I have read, however, I feel the sample size is too small to make a judgement about the potential of the book. It is well written so far, since only 12 pages are available, they hold great promise. But whether it can be published can only be shared if more of the book is shared with the reader. :)

The gentle man who taught infinity

Suman Chhabria Addepalli

I like the concept - both the idea writing the book about mathematics by stressing on the the methodology used by the teacher Channa excited me a lot as a reader. Even the cover and book title - The Gentleman who taught me infinity, holds huge promise of unraveling something the reader has never imagined. The copy is clean, and looks like the writer has taken pains on this one. However, as a reader- I found too much of technicality - too many sums and axioms. There was a good structure, but again the chapters were too long, and the wait to find something meaningful/delighful/funny required me to go through huge lengths of copy. The author writes very well, and should work at making his copy tighter. It is a promising subject, but not ready for publishing at the moment, in my humble opinion.

Nice cover, title. Well written, the author has taken pain on the manuscript but the stories seem to be a bit dull and inconclusive. I did not feel happy - there was either no middle, and no ending.

This was one of the best books I've read on this website so far. The author has taken effort and created multiple layers of narrative - love the idea of the "story within the unbelievable dream." He has taken the pains to edit and make grammatically perfect, whatever he has decided to share, and the effort shows. The character of Vikram Pratap Rana totally endears with his irreverence. The writer is good, and certainly as a reader I do want to read more and would love to see the book published. :) Well done!

The book soulmates has a very attractive title and cover, but needs editing for grammar. I feel the author has written it at a very two dimensional level, and it looks like a conversation she is having wherein she is narrating an encounter to a friend. There are no layers and description in the book which held my interest, and while I am interested in knowing what happens next, I also feel it is predictable. If some work is put into the writing, it could be a promising publish.

Very nice book, as a parent, even though I am not an NRI, there were a lot of takeaways for me. :) I do feel that -to borrow the author's words, the book could be structured well, edited and made into bite-sized proportions. But it is really a promising book!! Time well spent.

The good points first: Cover and title is very engaging and exciting. The enthusiasm and energy is apparent.
-ves: The book seems to have been written by a teenager. There is no thought in the structure and there are a lot of errors, like he didn't read it even the second time, itself. Also, there are a lot of sentences which could be edited out. Good attempt, but lot of work needed on this.

Really liked whatever I read till now; the book starts spectacularly, indicating that the protagonist is in some kind of serious problem. I liked how the story leads you into feeling it is just like your own story, that of a middle class, hardworking person who believes what is told to them, and has still can't comprehend nor is familiar with the devices and schemes of the corporate world. The story of Samir and Anirban until now (what I've sampled) makes me hungry to know what happens next. Also the twist with Nisha's entry and the obvious disappointment that simple - Samir is about to face, makes my heart reach out to him. This has happened to most of us - Also, i like the fact that in the background so much gyaan about the banking sector is given. Love the innocence in the writing!

I like how the review is a big void and the words come in later as a reply. Quite creative.

I found the first two stories about 377 and the Dog unconventional and fascinating, because they displayed the truths of human life in a thrilling and unpredictable manner. However, the bed bugs story was a bit annoying...it was a bit incredulous for me as a reader.
