Remember I told you that I had
begun reading ‘The Devil’s Workshop’ by Alex Grecian
? Well, I finished it yesterday. But I
must admit I was a bit disappointed by it. I didn't really like the ending you
know. I guess something more dramatic and pacy would have been better, for me at
least. Of-course I’m not saying I didn't enjoy it at all because I definitely did.
It had all the right ingredients for me after all. To my view any story set in
the late 1800s holds a different allure altogether. The same was the case with
this. The fact that it also had the intriguing angle of Jack the Ripper was,
well, an icing on the cake. It would suffice to say that I was already won over
by the plot before I had even turned the first page. And that’s where it all
went wrong. That’s perhaps the reason why the book fell short of my
expectations, for they were huge. Nevertheless the book did give me some interesting
and startling moments as a reader. So it was not all waste.
I'll give it a 3 out of 5.
Would I recommend it? Well, certainly. But not very strongly.
The next book I’ve picked up is ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
. Now I’ve heard a lot
about the author and the book. A few days back when Facebook Timelines were being
flooded with ‘Top 10 Books Favorite Books’ I noticed that Gabriel Garcia
Marquez or rather this book by him was a permanent fixture in many lists. So I obviously
wanted to find out what it was all about? Hence purchased it and have even begun
reading it. This time though I’m not setting any expectations. Let’s see how
this one unfolds.
On another related note, I’m so
happy with the way my reading is going these days. After a drought in this department
for about 4 to 5 months, I feel like I’m finally back on track. Fingers
Apart from my reading my movie
watching rate is also on the rise. Yes, well I guess I’m experiencing the ‘Have
Fun’ phase a little too strongly these days. We watched ‘A walk among the tombstones
this week but sadly Neeson wasn't really Neeson in this one. If you know what I
mean? Maybe it was the story or the lack of it! It didn't have the kill factor
you know. But there’s always another movie to watch. So undeterred as always
today we are going for ‘Deliver Us From Evil
’. Let’s see how that turns out. Oh by the way did you watch
the trailer of Annabelle
so damn scary, isn't it? Don’t watch it alone if you haven’t seen it already!
Signing off for today. Have a great
Keep reading and blogging!
