What a wonderful book!
For those of you who don’t know what the book is, here is the gist – The Undomestic Goddess is about this high-flying big town London based Lawyer, Samantha, who slips into a much laid back job. The changeover is like moving from Violet to Red, literally from one end to the other end of the spectrum.  How Samantha manages this sudden shift is the hilarious content of The Undomestic Goddess.

This novel could top the charts if it were made into a movie. It is easily the material for a Romcom. It is wonderfully thought out, and told with excellence. I did like Sophie Kinsella’s story-telling. It is a tried and tested formula – take up simple theme and story and make it work wonders just by using witty, intelligent story-telling. In this story, we all know how it is going to end, but that didn’t stop me from reading upto the end with frenzied interest. Yep, the momentum was up till the very end. That’s why it would make such a superb movie.

If there is one point I could criticize, it would be the editing. There were huge chunks of prose – could’ve divided that up. That’s about it. I’ve got nothing more to criticize. Continue reading

The plot keeps thickening. I liked Stevie Rae’s amazing comeback and adorable Jack. Although Stark’s character could have had a little more build up before we all totally fall in love with the mysterious stranger. The gang finally gets bigger,better and awesome to kick some serious High-priestess ass 😉 , I mean “butt” if I am to stick with the vocab standards we are following here 😛

Aaaaand we are back again to the undane drama. Awakened focussed solely on Jack’s death and clearly P.C.Cast was running out of things to say in this book . Although I badly wanted Rephaim to turn away from Darkness and his dad, the moment was extremely banal and did not excite me at all. There was no real struggle to choose between love for Stevie Rae and his eternal servitude. Heath returning was obvious and completely unwanted. Won’t we have the sweet clueless boy anymore.? I have come to like the Light and Darkness personified very much. The Bulls instill a sense of fear (both the good and the bad ) and there is no denying their majestic presence . Hope the story catches pace in Destined.

I liked how the story ends in this completely unexpected cliffhanger. It was a nice change to see Zoey-girl-who-can-move-mountains become almost normal again. I loved the part with Darius and Aphrodite. Rephaim and Stark added reality and groundedness to the story that none of the other ‘nerd-herd’ of Zoey’s could do in the previous five books.
I hope the story moves a little faster in the future books . I can’t deal with the boyfriend drama.

Tea for two and a piece of cake by Preeti Shenoy : A review

The first half of the book droned on like it was never gonna end. The frivolous plain-plump-Nisha with not a drop of self-respect did nothing to me as a protogonist. But this changed in the second half where she showed some sensibility by thinking on her feet. The children in the book were adorable and I felt my heart give a jolt of shock when baby Rohit hurt himself. Preethi Shenoy made the characters lovable towards the end. Happily ever after , eventhough cliched was well penned .
