The THC ~ Under a Gibbous Moon

Image
The book "The THC" had been received from The Tales Pensieve for its review.



    The book is all about the dynamic states of today's relationship. How love changes with time, consistency in the loyalty of relationships, guilt, loss of loved ones, the unheard feelings of a man/father/son and the adulteration in today's relationships.
      The story revolves around the three main characters Samar, Sanjaneka and Varun. Three different people, three different stories and all are at one place the THC. The book is a journey on the lives of three people; how they explore and face their problems and what brings them all to the THC. Co-incidences do happen and one can find it in their stories too. But the soothing feel that you get when you pour out your past, your problems and the result is the strength you get to face it is well explained. 
     The cover design is impressive. The writing style is simple with few errors here and there. The story is definitely disturbing for s…

In Loving Memory

The book "In Loving Memory" had been received from The Tales Pensieve for its review.

      The book is a collection of memories, incidents, struggles which involves majorly the author, her father and her closed ones. The cover of the book personally reminds me of freedom struggle but the book throws light on the Painter and his magnificent work which has been recognized globally.

       The childhood memories of the author, the modern living style in the olden days, her attachment towards her dad are well written. The role of her dad's close friends and her dad's love for painting is also well explained. The book does speak high on the magnificent art work of author's dad and also has few pictures of her dad's beautiful paintings but some how lacks to get the complete grip of the readers.

      The writing style is simple and classy. The quotes from the literature by great writers recognized world-wide are used to compare the situations beautifully. The…

Image
The book had been received as part of Reviewers Programme on The Tales Pensieve.



     Synopsis of the book is more catchy than the cover and the title. The story mainly revolves around the three youngsters Abhay, Sashank and Unnati who are in their twenties daring to accomplish an Indian road-trip along with a movie on the same. 

     The trio are all set to start their planned road trip with nervousness and excitement. As the story spins, giving you information about the beautiful destinations across India, it also throws light on the past of each individual's life. The childhood memories are not worth remembering if they had brought loneliness and darkness in life. Life is not smooth always and one always feels the other side of the grass is green. At the same time, changing your views, giving new perspective and thought to life and trying to make your present happy is what the book tells you about apart from Indian destinations and its facts. The friendship that Abhay and Sasha s…
