Most In Everything

For all people who like versatility in their reading schedule and enjoy reading all genres.

More the interaction, the better. Inputs and interactions are treasured.

From comfort reads to complex epics; from books that leave you smiling or books that send a chill down your spine. I read everything and have multiple opinions to share and discuss.

Gabriel García Márquez, Edith Grossman

City of Bones

City of Bones - Cassandra Clare Enlist all the cliches from any lousy YA novel and create the characters. Crossover with characteristics directly copied from Harry Potter series. This book is a rambling of uncreative incidents. I went along, nonetheless, hoping to at least derive some guilty pleasure from the budding romance.

But guess what? The novel employs the most tedious and sleazy twist to make the book interesting, INCEST. Talk about the dumps of creativity. Just to set apart the novel from all others of its genre, the author has employed a pitiful issue to keep things fresh. Although unexpected, the twist just makes you gross out and despise the author for her insensitivity while dealing with such a deep and controversial issue.
Highly disappointing, I've read anime crossover fanfictions that are better written and have more creativity.

The Fellowship of the Ring

The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien I do not usually like reading fantasy novels, after being burnt by the Harry Potter series. I know many wouldn't agree but it really ruined the whole genre for me as a kid, mostly owing to the sub-par writing and language. I thought all fantasy novels were similar but I was mistaken. Lord of The Rings has renewed my faith in the Fantasy genre.
The first volume is incredibly conceived and elaborately described, so much so that you can actually hear the rivers, feel the heat and the cold weathers and wish direly that you had a Gandalf in your life. All this, without even having to watch the movies, because I haven't yet and I don't intend to till I get through the series and The Hobbit.
Tolkien's writing is reminiscent of Dickens', enhanced by the fact that the conception of a new universe requires far greater imagination and creativity which are abundant in the novel.
I am glad I got on the Tolkien bandwagon and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
