Love Virtually

The book Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer is one of the most interesting and unputdownable pieces of romance ever written. It has a perfect tagline – “Have you ever just clicked with someone?” The plot revolves around the lives of two central characters – Leo and Emmi. Leo and Emmi get to know each other through one wrong email and then a series of emails follow. The book is nothing but a compilation of their emails. It doesn’t have any other settings to enhance and ensure that the plot moves. All of it is through their emails. And that in my opinion, is the charm of the book. It sure takes a really good writer to be able to make the readers emote and connect with the story as well as Daniel does, and all through email conversations.

Norwegian Wood


Sometimes, pieces of art are what they are. They are simply art; they are simply what they are shown to be. At other times, when our minds are free and the days are sunny, and the thoughts unravel at a pace which I cannot describe out here, we stumble across a piece of art that speaks. Yes, it does and it does to whosoever is not blinded by the beauty of it. Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood is a piece of art that speaks to me. I have seen through its faults, one and two, scattered in between, but I have no qualms in saying that here is a book which should be treated with reverence, praised and loaded with all the adjectives that one can scour the earth for.

Escape by Death


Published in 1993, The Virgin Suicides was Jeffrey Eugenides’s first ever novel.  Set in America in the 1970s, it’s a woefully distressing story of the suicide stories of five sisters, one after the other. Though this is his debut novel, Eugenides never makes you feel that at any point through the novel. He has also won the Pulitzer prize for his other novel, Middlesex.

Salman Rushdie has come out with a new book and no, it is not controversial. Yet. Instead, it is a memoir, a book of many books. Titled Joseph Anton, it talks to us about how life changed for Rushdie post Fatwa in 1989, for his book ‘Satanic Verses’. Of course, it narrates the life of the man from his childhood and how certain incidents shaped him to be the man that we see today.
