Book Review: AVENGER.

Avenger - To inflict punishment or penalty in return for; to take vengeance on behalf of.

Helloooooo,

How are you today??
Good? Happy? Feeling positive?
No?

Then, go drink some positivityyy.....Kidding, please read this post till the end.

Sooo, I am here today to give a book review! *self-applauds*
Yes, yes thank you!
If you know me, you surely must know that I love books. They are my Bae. My friends are always on stand-by whenever we are near a book store. They are ready to pull me away because I will not leave that spot and stop staring at the books. (Which is not wrong but I’ll be wasting their time too)
It is my dream to have my own library.

Anyway, the book I am reviewing is called “Avenger” by Frederick Forsyth.
It is not in any way related to the Avengers movie, so get that thought out of your head. It is infinite times better than that.
(Also, I really really wanted this book to be the first one I review in my book-review list.)



*sigh* where do I even start? This is one of my favourite books. I love this book. The plot, the story line, the plan, the revenge…..oh my god. AND it all comes together so beautifully. This brilliant writer leaves no strings apart and weaves the story in such an awesome way!

“A kind-hearted aid worker is killed in Bosnia, by a Serbian warlord. And his grandfather is a Canadian tycoon who has (obviously) the money to afford the best revenge.
So, he looks for help and finds out that it is not as easy as he thought. And he sends an ad for hiring the ‘avenger’, to get his job done.
The story follows how this ‘avenger’ named Cal, draws a net around the warlord.
Will he be successful in his worldwide hunt?”

This is the brief version, similar to the plot they have explained at the back of the book. But, the thing is that each character has a background story which is explained in great detail. And it is necessary, for the story to come together. You have to plough on through the detailed explanation, because it so worth it.

I cannot believe that this book has only a 3.8 stars on goodreads.
The people who gave less than 4 stars are probably idiots who didn’t understand the story at all, or maybe they didn’t notice the subtle hints and the giant plot twist at the end.

This book is one of the best books I have ever read in the ‘Political Thriller’ genre.
I definitely don’t want to spoil it for you, but please, you have to read this book.

The heart breaking part is that, two men, who went through the same difficulties together, end up having completely different lives. It is that difference which made me break down, when I realised it. (Don’t worry, this will not spoil your read because it is something I came up with, putting the pieces together, and it is nowhere written in the book. It’s kind of like an indirect message given by the writer)
Until the Epilogue, there is a suspense. The Epilogue is the epitome of the entire story. Don’t read the epilogue just because you got tired of the story. It is worth the read. Please, guys definitely read this book.

Okayyy…so that was my review. It is hard to give a spoiler-free review, especially in a suspense novel. But I tried my best. I hope you guys read it and those who do read it, please let me know what you thought and maybe we can discuss it together??? *grins wide*
Woohoooo



Love,

P.S - I know! I know it's been long since I did not post! February just flew by like a bullet train! And I'm just standing here like.... 😲😲😲😲

"Let them take themselves to Hell, those hard hearts who leave their children to cry themselves to sleep alone, and in Hell they will have to listen to the sound of a child crying and know that they can never comfort it."

I just found this so apt for what I've been wanting to post about...
Helloooo..

How are you today?? I practically am the biggest fool on earth to have forgotten my project report for my exams today... And I am extremely grateful to my uncle who came to my college to give it to me (twice, not to mention....I am so so sorry for all the trouble I've caused. Stupid me)...

Coming back to that thought, it's not a ''thought'' thought...you know...it's what Debbie 'thinks' when she hears the sound of a child crying....
Please let me make this clear, again, as this is just my rant, and I really hope all of the children will agree with me....This is just my…

Okay, so I am not gonna start this post by typing some quote about friendship. Because there is no one quote which can totally sum up this wonderful relationship. It is love, it is laughter, and it is that lukewarm feeling too.


Hellooooooo,
How are you today? On this fine, beautiful day?

Cheer up because this is an awesome topic which you should read with a smile on your face. *grins*

Sooo, last Sunday was ‘Friendship Day’ and I thought of writing about it…..But the thing is, I don’t know what to write…I’ve chosen a difficult topic….*sheesh* *smacks own head* . Well, I’ll try my best. (And that’s why this post was delayed. My apologies!)

Oh and Disclaimer, disclaimer: I am not mentioning the names of any of my friends out of respect for their privacy. But if anybody is interested in letting their name be known in this post, please let me know. I’ll add your names. I don’t mind. *lol*

As you may know, I grew up watching cartoons. So, my definition of friendship is kind of whacked or so, I th…

The Day I Did Not Speak Up

Hellloooooo,

It's been a while.
How are you today?? *grins*
I'm just whiling away lazing around... *hehehe*
Well, I need to get off my ass and start learning again!

Anyway, this particular incident happened last Friday that is the 8th of July...


Let me say - ''Let's go back five days....''

I have a bike. You can call it a scooter? I'm not sure with the technical term. Well, it is the 'Yamaha Ray Z'. (Truly grateful to my father and God, that I have a bike. So blessed!)
So, I had to give it to the Periodic Service. And I had gone to the service center which is below the Showroom itself. (Hebbal, if anyone wants the details)
I had to wait for my turn, since they have a token system. So, you take a token and wait for your number to be called.
So, I waited for like 45 minutes..  just humming 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams (I have no idea why I just remembered this song. I hadn't listened to it in so long...*goes and blasts on Happy~~*)
