Book Review - Simply Fly

I just finished reading the book 'Simply fly' by Captain G. R. Gopinath and was fascinated by his ventures. From a Captain to a farmer to an airways owner (strikes a note similar to the movie Gladiator), the book does not bore once. Early Days Capt Gopinath was born in a remote village of Karnataka called Gorur. He saw early success in his career when he aced the Sainik school examination. Post Sainik school, he sat for UPSC and joined the NDA. He took part in the 1971 Bangladesh war as an intelligent officer initially and later got into the centre of action as a gun position officer (GPO).

Chicken Boy

A flat rating of two stars may come up short of what I'd like to give this book. I'm not sure that I would rate Chicken Boy as two and a half stars, but I would probably at least consider it. When attempting to write a book in a first-person voice noticeably accented by the verbiage and tonal flow of a particular geographic region, I think it's nearly always the writer's goal to get the reader to hear the accent in his or her head. Certain words or phrases can help achieve this effect; in Chick A flat rating of two stars may come up short of what I'd like to give this book.

Wonderbook: Book of Spells Review

When Wonderbook: Book of Spells was first revealed at E3 2012, it wasn’t really something that entertained everyone. But for Sony, it was important, because it’s something that would clearly get them more hardware sales since it is targeted a specific audience that loves such products. You know those augmented reality cards right? Dull and worthless, but spring to life under a camera? This is the same but it’s now a book, and as the name implies, it allows you to use augmented reality to explore magical worlds which, frankly surprised me, considering how ingenious it was.

Exit to Eden

One good thing about traveling is that you often have to read whatever comes your way and are more likely to have to stick with it. Not to say that I wouldn't read smut back home, but there is no way I could justify finishing this turd of a book if I had access to my local library and my own bookshelf. So anyway, WEALTH, there is nothing more boring (not to mention revolting) than a bunch of rich porknobs who are wallowing in the shit. The main character, Elliot, is a rich playboy who was spoileOne good thing about traveling is that you often have to read whatever comes your way and are more likely to have to stick with it.

Champagne Supernovas

“As someone whose knowledge of fashion runs fairly pedestrian, I was surprised to find myself unable to put down Maureen Callahan’s propulsive Champagne Supernovas. With a scholar’s eye and a tabloid reporter’s touch, Callahan bursts open one of the most exclusive industries in the world, revealing to the grit and glamour, the damaged, drug-addled underdogs, and the tortured geniuses who forever changed the way we comprehend and commodify beauty. This instant classic -- a master class in how to write smart, intimate, at times shocking, but always compulsively readable non-fiction -- deserves its place as the 90s answer to other pop culture giants, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Fifth Avenue, 5AM.
