BOOK REVIEW: The Claim by Sanjay Bordia


51a5g-4cjxl-_sx311_bo1204203200_
"The recent foray of '3M Chandani Group' into the life insurance sector is besieged with a large insurance claim. All evidence and documents are in order but there is an eerie feeling that something is not right. The case lands on the table of 'Mohan Mohanty', the ace internal auditor of the group. Will Mohan be able to unearth the truth? Laila and Iceberg, two trusted assistants of Mohan, are confident that with Mohan at the helm, truth need not worry. The investigation takes Mohan and his team to a village hospital where the compounder Tara Nath fixes the posting of doctors. The team of auditors meets Madan Prasad, a sculptor who creates wax statutes which can chase London's Madam Tussaud out of business. The team has to find out whether branch manager, Sunil Shinde, is a victim or a culprit. Time is running out since the Mehra family, the parents and brother of the deceased, are threatening to go to the media and the courts, if the settlement of the insurance claim is delayed further. Mohan has to act fast and come out with clinching evidence or pay the insurance claim of Rs. 10 Crore.


BOOK REVIEW:- I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
In the newspaper ,there was the headline of a small news item . The death of a young man named Prabhat Mehta could get in the national newspaper’s state edition.

This case was examined by the internal auditor Mohan.

Mohan Mohanty, the internal auditor for the entire 3M Chandani group, had a great reputation. Almost all businesses of the group had a tale to tell of his investigative skills. 
Looks like a very good case of very bad luck.

Though on the face everything looks normal, but there was something unusual. The death of the insured person within three years of taking insurance deserves a thorough checking. It is as per the rules of the insurance business.



It is interesting to find how Mohan investigates the case along with his assistant Laila and Iceberg.


"Every act has three parts - beginning, middle and 
the end. Birth certificate was the beginning, school 
certificate was the middle and death certificate was the 
end. All acts were perfectly in place."




There were so many twists & turns, it made my head spin! If you are looking for a good suspense, this is definitely a great choice! The story was so much addicting that once you’re in, you won’t stop until you reached that last line. 
Words don't describe how amazing the book is. It's a fun read .I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.  A fantastic debut. A Must Read.

BOOK REVIEW: Kaliyug: The Secret Plot by B.S.Sarwagna Kumar


30216125
If you think humanity has lost its meaning, greater darkness is on its way. What could have happened in the past that made our present to be in this way? And how would our present society demolish the future to crumbles? This is war; war between the first devil, and his nemesis...war between religion and divinity of 'spirituality & knowing'...war between cruel hearted and kind ones. This is the war of KALIYUG. An army consisting an axe, a sword, a horse, great wisdom, and the remains of a dead child, is coming to slay the first of evil, and his minions. Pick your side. Good, or evil? Respect, or rape? Kindness, or cruelty? Come join Kaliyug's secretive battle with its twisted secretive plot!






BOOK REVIEW :- 
The story is completely based on Hindu mythology.
The plot is awesome and rich and full mystery, suspense, and twists and turns. 
There was interconnections between Parashurama, Agastya, Rama, Krishna, etc.


The book is boring in between.


I think author has done lot of reserach before writing this book.
What a amazing description of all characters seemed like so real.
There were so many things in this book that it was just a mess though u will get to know many things about Vedas, Gods,Kalyug.

The four Yugas are namely Krita Yoga (ruled by the time lord called Satya),Treta Yuga (ruled by the time lord called Treta),Dwapara Yuga (ruled by the time lord called Dwapara) and Kali Yuga or called Kaliyug ,ruled by the demonic time lord called Kali.

This book is a fiction. Part1 contains the story that has happened so far and Part 2 in this book is based on the story that was predicted in 'Bhavishya Purana','kalki Purana','Vishnu Purana' etc.This is not just a tale of good fighting against evil.This is not just a religious story.It contains the quintessential facets of love,compassion,and a Promise;for which everything is to be sacrificed.

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

BOOK REVIEWS: The Suitable Inheritor by Pushpendra Mehta


29738916
An inspirational journey to the extraordinary that spans Chicago and Peru with a strong India connect. A fascinating saga of exceptional success, true love, profound relationships, divine intervention, happiness, and peace.

Michael Elliott is stirred from deep sleep by an early-morning dream—a beautiful woman leads him to the Pacific Ocean and whispers that the ocean will help him discover his true destiny. When Michael is then invited to Peru, he wonders if this is the path to that destiny.

The journey of a lifetime, the energy of the majestic Pacific Ocean, a priceless philosophy for success and happiness, the sacrifice of a soul mate from Chicago, and the support of a special mate from India combine to make Michael the preeminent relationship coach for young people. Once he reaches that pinnacle, he is confronted with the most difficult choice he has ever made: in the pursuit of excellence, does sacrifice matter more than support; or without support, does no sacrifice count?

Can Michael resolve this life-changing dilemma, discover his true destiny, and finally become The Suitable Inheritor?

BOOK REVIEW:- I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The book is written very well. 

What allured me to stick to this book is the way the author narrates the whole story, bit-by-bit, piece-by-piece in a forward motion, where there were no wrong turns.  

It will totally keep you guessing, it did me anyway. The author has written this so well, very descriptive, intelligent, full of incredible imagination. All that combined really draws you right into the story, and holds you there until the very end. 

This book is indeed highly inspirational and motivational and is a must read for everyone out there as it showcases that all the things called destiny and fate, are just in the mind. To be successful, it's in your hand to get up and get going. Really a book worth reading!

Pros: 

  • Fresh Intriguing Plot & Story.
  • Excellent Narration.
  • The writing style is beautiful.


The book held me from the very first chapter and let me go on the very last line of the book.

This book will remain memorable for me. I absolutely loved this book and am sure that you will too!

Excerpt

In that moment, I knew that he had me fooled. I would buy into this façade of a reality where it didn’t matter if Monty thought we were dead when we were actually alive. I had faith in a fairytale that we could live in a conspicuous location inconspicuously. It was all a fantasy, but I wanted so much to believe that we were safe, that no one would ever find us here, that Cabel and I had escaped unseen.

But maybe I wasn’t a complete fool. Maybe it was denial not naiveté. Maybe it was hope in the pipe dream that our life could return to the way it once was. Either way, I succumbed to the fake world Cabel had created. And I let myself believe that none of it was too good to be true.

Cabel’s fingers tangled through my hair, as his other hand slipped beneath my shirt and trailed the length of my naked back. Clinging to him, I clasped my hands together behind his neck and whimpered when he tugged at my bottom lip. Cabel groaned at the sound that left my parted lips and pushed me up against the wall.

My hands searched his torso, rubbing and caressing his skin. His chest. His abs. His ribs. When Cabel folded his hands through mine and then ripped the shirt over the top of my head, I couldn’t believe that he was mine. How had I gotten so lucky?

Cabel placed his hands at my waist and hauled me into the bedroom, where we collapsed on the mattress together. He stretched out beside me and cradled my face in his hands, similar to the first time we had made love. I felt his lips against my neck, as his fingers traveled along the sides of my arms and then my neck and then my spine.

Right before that pivotal moment, that felt so much like freezing fire and burning ice, he left the softest kiss on my lips, and I knew he would be gentle. His frosty blue eyes gazed into mine, loving, caring, trusting. Since the day I met Cabel Jones, he had taken every part of me, but none that I hadn’t already been willing to give. As he braided his fingers through mine and pushed the back of my hands into the mattress, I knew that I had made my choice.

If he was going to burn, then I would burn with him.

BOOK REVIEW: The Soft Target by Kalyan Nanda


Is God good? Or is He a manipulative villain who plays with the lives of his creations in the name of karma? As far as Mohan Mishra is concerned, God is a villain. Mohan is God's soft target, for He 'blesses' him with a strange mental problem and kills his support system when he needed it the most. The Soft Target is the story of a boy's journey into manhood, as he takes on God with his mental prowess, defeating Him at every stage, thus making God his soft target. Supported by great friends and a loving wife, Mohan fights an epic battle against the murderous society, the conniving legal system and ultimately God himself, with remarkable courage and spirit.









BOOK REVIEW:- The story revolves around the protagonist , he was suffering from a disease. Mohan has some mental problem. He keeps saying things that have no meaning.Some people considered him mad. His parents were concerned about him and made him checked by the doctor. Mohan was oblivious to his parents’ condition. Sometimes, God gives you a
peek into what’s going to happen to your life but you never
realize it.
A boy like this would have ideally got into depression. Our society does not take kindly to such mental problems or for that matter any mental problem.Doctors also surrendered and said that there is no treatment for it. He will have to live with this, he needs a counselor, an physicatrist counselor.

As usual, Mohan was good in studies and used to top in his class. Mohan was such a disciplined
student that he did not have to be monitored.  His parents had not even arranged a tuition teacher for him. All that Mohan had achieved was a result of his own hard work.

After some days, Mohan's parents were died in an accident when they both were going to visit Shiv Mandir.This was the first time when Mohan broke.

Will he able to survive and tackle all the obstacles coming in his way?Will he able to succeed in his life and proof himself?  Will his hatred towards God will become less?  

This story shows the struggle of a common boy like Mohan .His life journey.

 I would rate this book, 4.5 out of 5 stars.
