Overview:

Rihana is a painter who is trying to find inspiration in love. Zara is a businesswoman trying to make a niche for her company in a male-dominated world. Rihana is fire, Zara is ice; Rihana is openly sensual, while Zara is more cautious with her heart—they are opposites that attract. They are different people bound together by their house—‘Cupid’—and their pet golden retriever, Tiger.

As both of them navigate their fulfilling careers and try to leave behind troubled pasts, they find solace in each other. But Tiger’s not the only male in their lives. Rihana finds herself a string of sexy men, while Zara emerges out of her shell and meets an actual prince who sweeps her off her feet. But can these relationships last? And what road will they take when love happens bi the way?

Review:

Rihana, a girl full of life and Zara, a quiet and serious kind of a girl. Opposite in nature but had a great bonding. The blurb of the book talks a lot and same is with the cover. I read a lot about the book before reading it and I knew that the subject of the book is LGBT but after reading the book, I can say that the book is having a lot to question. Through her characters, author put questions upon our existing society and some of her points are bang on. You will agree on most of them and that’s what the beauty about this book is. It never leaves you bored within the parameter of ‘Society Satire’ but tries to blend in everything and serve an exciting read for the readers.

Bhavna Arora is a big name among Indian Authors who write in English language but whoever has read her previous book will never have anticipated that her new book would be of this kind. It is actually a very good book and the author has literally nailed it.

Book is full of one liner that you will love to cherish or mark for further reading. Some of the moments are pretty memorial and will stay with you pretty longer. Language is like a flowing river and story is gripping. This book is a perfect read, if you are looking something really good and fresh.

Overview:

A violent encounter on the streets of Manhattan forces Wall Street banker Maximus Pzoras to confront questions about suffering and mortality that have dogged him since his mother’s death. His search for a mentor takes him to the farthest reaches of India, where he encounters a mysterious night market, almost freezes to death on a hike up the Himalayas and finally, finds himself in an ashram in a small drought stricken village in South India where strange things begin to happen to him.

But are Yogis who walk on water, do impossible poses, and live agelessly for 200 years the stuff of fiction or fact? Can a flesh and blood man ever truly achieve nirvana? Max struggles to overcome his rational skepticism and the pull of family tugging him back home. In a final bid for answers, he embarks on dangerous solitary meditation in a freezing Himalayan cave. Will Max penetrate the truth of human suffering, or is enlightenment just a new age illusion?

The SEEKER is both a page turning adventure story and a journey of tremendous inner transformation, a SIDDHARTHA for our generation.

REVIEW :

‘The Seeker’ is a kind of book that you would surely love to see in your bookshelf and pick it up often to just have a feel of the amazingness contained in those pages.

The Seeker is about the protagonist Max who was living a very dull life and suddenly decides to take up the journey of Himalayas to find Yogis and ask them about the ultimate way of achieving happiness. This book talks about a journey that will keep you on your toes till the very end.

When I picked this book up, I wasn’t sure that whether I’ll be hooked by the book or not but first thing which strikes my doubtfulness was the brilliant writing style of the author. He took Simple English to another level. If you are in writing, you should be able to learn a lot from his writing style and for those who are readers will experience spell bounding art of writing.

Story of the book doesn’t kick start initially. Author took his time to build up the characters first which made it a bit dull in the beginning but gradually the story picks up the pace which keeps on developing till the end and at the climax, you’ll be left dumbstruck.

Himalayan journey portrayal by the author is imaginarily stunning. Author makes you believe that you are standing at those ‘beautifully dangerous’ peaks and struggling for oxygen and the only thing that will make you survive is your will power. Author’s writing style is so lively and vivid that he’ll force you to get in the shoes of Max.

The book talks about Yoga, meditation, will power and many other things that need extensive research to write upon. He never makes things look boring because he is not writing about his research but is writing a story that itself, is engaging.

A loved the book thoroughly and will recommend this for sure. It’s a journey of lifetime. Do grab a copy now.
