Marry Me Stranger by Novoneel Chakraborty
Review – 3.5/5
Rivannah Banerjee (Mini) an ambitious, brilliant girl from Kolkata has managed to grab her dream job via campus placement programme. She moves to Mumbai to pursue her career.
Things seem to be perfect till and unfortunate character; A stranger enters Mini’s life. The person stalks her and has managed to acquire Mini’s most intimate secrets. There is just a voice; a voice that is threatening and commanding. The stranger helps Mini a lot but as the stranger says “Noting comes for free”, the stranger makes Mini return the favor. He forces her to do certain tasks which seems to be simple but not doing it puts Mini into deep trouble. Frustrated and scared, Mini finally approaches police for help.
The story has been amazingly carved out. As each page progress, suspense makes its way into your mind. The author surely knows to hold reader’s interest. The stranger seems to be a typical blackmailer, but of the helping kind. And ofcourse along with Mini, you’ll start wondering about the stranger’s identity.
If you concentrate and try capture the essence of the storyline, surely you’ll love this book.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Review – 4.5/5
Brave New World as the name suggests is a world that is brave and free from all its struggle. This book describes a future that is perfect in all its sense. A future where science and technology has reached its acme. A future where machines have progressed to a stage where they have revolutionized the human society. A reality that is different and advanced. A world where the normal mode of transportation used by people are helicopters.
The author beautifully puts forward his imagination to what a future like that could be and how the human mind can be revolutionized. This book also gives me the idea that as time passes by humans are becoming more and more on machines and if this dependence continues we are not very far from becoming the type of world predicted in this book. Although this may sound interesting but living in a world like that would be scary.
I think that this book should be read by people so that they understand the importance of nature and its existence in human society as a world runned by machines would rather be a scary one.
I love books, and I live them. For years now they have been my companion through tough and good times alike. How did I inculcate the habit of reading? For that, I am grateful to my parents for buying me those fairy tale stories when I was young. From then the journey began which has yet not ended, and I hope it won’t. There were times when I used to spend my entire monthly pocket money in the first week itself to buy books. It was a hobby, it was an addiction. A habit which proved to be more than useful to me. It improved my writing as well as communicative skills. My vocabulary improved considerably. I had a chance of proper education. I am grateful I had the chance to read.
It was pretty simple actually; I wanted to read books and I had resources to buy them. But, is every person that lucky? I say lucky because I was blessed as my basic needs were fulfilled. It helped me flourish into a better person. My views improved, I had relevant opinions to offer on the current state of affairs.
Does every child has the resource to fulfill his or her dreams? I am afraid not. Give them a chance to fulfill these dreams, a chance to read, a chance to construct a better future. Help us reach out to those with lesser resources along with your aid. Donate your old and new books, academic textbooks, and even blank notebooks.

Mother- A person who wants the best for her kids. A person who strives hard to fulfill her children’s wishes. A person who puts her kids’ needs ahead of her. A person who provides her kids with the best that is available, even if she hadn’t received such care in her childhood, even if there are limited resources. And if she is unable to read, she will still help and motivate her kids.
On this day, I am very grateful and thankful to my mother for encouraging my habit of reading.
We, at Book Share India, help fulfill such dreams by providing children with books donated by you. Help us realize their dreams.
Happy Mother’s Day.
