What I have been reading this month?

Hey friends. I won't be posting any reviews today as my laptop has been formatted and in the process of installation of the required softwares. 

So today I would like to share with you, the two books I have been reading this month. First is the The Secret of the Nagas which is the second book of the Shiva Trilogy, the sequel to the No 1 national bestseller, The Immortals of Meluha.


ABOUT: Shiva’s hunt for the Naga who killed his friend Brahaspati and targeted his wife Sati, takes him down India’s major river networks, searching for traitors and seeking allies in his war against evil. But evil is rising again, more potent than ever. A whole nation is dying. Another, suffering for no fault of its own. Everyone is suspect: new friends, old allies and even his philosopher guides. At every corner, Shiva finds evidence of Naga activity. A crown prince is murdered. A people held to ransom for a miracle drug made only by the Nagas.  Shiva’s journey takes him across the length and breadth of Swadweep, to the land of the Brangas and further south, deep into the Dandak forest. Shiva searches for the truth in a land of deadly mysteries – only to find that nothing is what it seems.  Book 2 of the Shiva trilogy takes up from the point where Shiva is dashing to save Sati at the end of The Immortals of Meluha. Does he succeed? His archenemy seems to be winning every encounter. All Shiva knows for sure is that the Chandravanshis aren’t evil. But then, neither are the Suryavanshis. So who or what is evil? And who is the mysterious Naga that stalks his family? What does he want? What is The Secret of the Nagas?

Personally, I just loved this book (if you can just ignore the silly conversational language used) and can't wait to read the third part of this trilogy series, The Oath of the Vayuputras, to be released.

Few days back I also completed reading the latest by Chetan Bhagat, Revolution 2020.



 ABOUT:  
Once upon a time, in small-town India, there lived two intelligent boys.
One wanted to use his intelligence to make money.
One wanted to use his intelligence to create a revolution.
The problem was, they both loved the same girl.

Welcome to Revolution 2020. A story about childhood friends Gopal, Raghav and Aarti who struggle to find success and love in Varanasi. However, it isn’t easy to achieve this in an unfair society that rewards the corrupt. As Gopal gives in to the system, and Raghav fights it, who will win?

Read an excerpt of the book here.

Well, IMO the story made a good start and held promise till the middle, after that it went downhill and became a narration of a third grade melodrama and the climax didn't leave its mark on my mind. Expectations from Mr. Bhagat has increased after the "Two States" and this book was a complete disappointment. All I can say is good luck for the next time.
