I completed The Conch Bearer few days back and loved the way Chitra Divakaruni takes the reader through the adventure.This book will interest many children too. Though I found it intriguing it is basically for young readers.
The adventure of the Conch’s journey to its home is also a home coming for the two children who participate. One of them has no home and the other decides to let go of his life.
At present, I am reading ‘Kafka On the Shore’ by Haruki Murakami. To say the story is gripping would be to underestimate the impact on mind. The story of a boy named Kafka Tamura a 15 year old who runs away from home in search of his mother and sister.
It is fast, intriguing and fantastical. I have just completed two hundred pages, and I cannot keep it away. In the silence night, this book is amazing. Haruki Murakami has written a mind-blowing novel
See you later…
