1) Game of Thrones series- I have finished part 1, part 2, part 3 book 1, part 3 book 2. I have taken a break before starting part 4…. there is a part 5 and part 6 is being written currently. The book is about … well, a war for thrones among many, many self proclaimed kings for different parts of a country. What I like about it is that it is unpredictable. In book 1, the hero was Ned Stark was has 6 kids- 4 boys and 2 girls. At the end of the book, he is killed. In book 2 and 3, the hero is his son Robb. He is killed off in book 3. Now, I don’t know who is the hero. Should I just side with the villains? I am confused and waiting to read the next part. .
2) The diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4- I have been looking for this book for a very long time but it was always unavailable. Finally, I found it in Landmark. It is a the diary of a 13 year old boy… on the lines of Diary of a wimpy kid except Adrian Mole came first. There are many sequels and I plan to read each one of them. The book can be finished in a few hours and it was a welcome change from GOT.
3) Powder Room by Shefalee Vasudev: SV was an editor for Marie Claire. This book is about the Indian Fashion Industry. SV has touched various aspects of it, not just the glamorous ones. Chapters about Tarun Tahiliani, Rajesh, Rajesh Pratap… a perspective on fashion shows… the politics behind it… the plight of artisans…. and much more. I can’t judge the book correctly because I am an outsider who knows nothing. But, I liked it. I would be eager to come home and read the book. A good read.
And now onto the Game Of Thrones part 4.
