You've read The Iliad?! review PLEEEEEEASE. :)
and since i mentioned reviews, go on and give 'Requiem For A Dream' a read. wow. it took me a full ten days to clear the first 20% of the book... reason? it has no damn punctuation marks! so that caught me off-guard but once i passed that block, my-oh-my. great book and a very impressive movie. they followed it really close on screen.
Swati hi, I've come across a story that is so exeptional I had to write you about it. It's titled "Nathan's Run" by John Gilstrap and I think you will find it as moving and inspiring as I did. While a fictional account it is an emotional coming-of-age journey that will pull at your heartstrings and give you pause to think about the power of the human spirit. Enjoy and READ ON...
Hi Swati! I'm from the Author, Author group and wanted to welcome you to our forum. November’s featured author is Nora Roberts, and we have two alternate authors, O Henry and Anne Rice. If you're interested, you can choose a book written by any (or all!) of these three authors, and after you've read it, please come post a review and star rating so the rest of us in the group know what you read and whether you liked it or not. Happy Reading!
When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by
dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing,
then we truly live life.

I intend picking up TGIN too. Tharoor is someone I have greatly admired right from the time he used to beat me hollow in every debate representing Xavier's while I was with Don Bosco - maybe you've seen my response tweets on the subj
Yes Swati, I am a bit of a Wodehouse freak. Owned most of his 90 pieces but lost many of them to book lovers who specialise in borrowing and not returning :-( So building up my collection again.
Recently I have become a great fan of the old chinese war strategy masters - notably Sun Tzu and Mushashi. Applicability to modern management is awe inspiring.
There are some other authors I used to read as a child/student that I badly want to build up a collection again of. Notably W.E. Johns (Biggles series), Agatha Christie, Gk Chesterton (Father Brown series), Alistair Mclean etc :)
Swati, thanks for adding me to your friends list. I am looking forward to your suggestions and comments about good books you've read. I will offer the same to you. I would like to suggest one of my all time favorites: "Daddy" by Loup Durand. Enjoy and READ ON...
