Though the manuscript has come under some criticism because of obvious similarities with the world in LOTR, I have to say I am mighty impressed with Raj's writing. The language is good and does give the feel of an epic. The rough tongue of mariners has been replicated well. As a suggestion, the author needs to make the start more interesting to draw the reader into the new world. There are a few large paragraphs which can be done away with, a few passages of telling which can be replaced by showing. Can be a good work with some edits. Best of luck!

I will begin by saying kudos to Audumbar for posting the first genuine horror novel on BGB. I can clearly understand what you have tried to achieve and what you have wanted the reader to feel. The story has potential and the author has imagined it well. Would definitely like to read it further. Now, a few suggestions. I won't focus on the few niggles here and there. A thorough grammatical check will take care of them. What I would suggest is that you should make it more visual. That's extremely important in horror books. Words like gore, grotesque, scary etc. are only words. They don't let a reader imagine anything. Use metaphors. To give you an example, how grotesque is grotesque? Does it look like an abandoned carcass of a drowned man, whose bulging eyes and contorted lips are spewing venom for the men who ignored his cries in the flood and left him alone to die. This is a crude example, but I hope you got my point. Make the reader visualize your world. I am telling you, they will feel scared.

There are three deep aspects of storytelling. One is the world in which the story occurs. Second is the story itself. And third is the characters. There is no doubt that Aviral is a gifted writer. The world he creates and his characters live in are brilliantly depicted. A reader can easily drift into his world and talk to his characters which is no mean achievement. The only glitch I felt was in the stories which (barring the second one which was awesome) could have given the characters a wider set of colors, brushes and canvas to express themselves. Good thing is that the stories are very compact and the author has an opportunity to add that zing, twist or pathos to make them unforgettable. All books on BGB are a work in progress (mine included), so there is always a chance to make the edges smoother. Best of luck!

The gentle man who taught infinity

Uday Satpathy

A gem of a book. First of all, kudos to Sheshagiri for exploring a niche area - mathematics. I have been fascinated by mathematics since my childhood and this book did whet my appetite. One suggestion, if I am allowed to make - Please hide the narrator's commentary to make the story flow faster. As a reader, I would prefer this book to be a child's experiences with mathematics and the teacher who taught it. Remember the movie - Dead Poets Society? I would love if your book goes that way. The bildungsroman way. Sad to award 4 stars to a potentially 5-star book.

It used to be a booming industry in the mid-19th century. 30 million of this species were exported from Germany to America annually and French imports in 1833 were in the region of 42 million. Soon, the industry disappeared. Why? Read more on my blog http://wp.me/p4grDj-8K

True crime is a non-fiction genre dealing with two things: a crime and people committing the crime. There is a third facet also – people impacted by the crime, but it is often packaged implicitly with the first two. For thriller authors, the true crime genre can often be a learning school and a benchmark for reality. Fiction novels with serial killers as main characters, books hovering over criminal cases, police procedurals – all can take a leaf out of true crime novels. For a nation like ours overfed with true crime shows on the TV, it’s a real crime that there are so few true crime novels in the market. What adds to the surprise is that shows like India’s Most Wanted and Crime Patrol – Dastak have been amongst the most viewed on the idiot-box. But what’s the situation when it comes to books? Check it out in my blog http://wp.me/p4grDj-y

The last time I read a self-help book was a decade back. Reading this book refreshed those memories. One always comes out feeling better and more confident after reading such books and this one is no exception. Thought provoking words from Jahnavi -- a must for people trying to unravel the complexities of life.

Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen was rejected about 140 times before getting published. As of today, the series has sold more than 80 whopping million copies. How's that for a rejection story?

An engrossing tale of people whose destinities become entangled because of decisions made in the past. Loved the way the author adds new dimensions and layers to the characters as the story moves ahead. Looking forward to the published book.

While traveling from Chennai to New Delhi in a train, I came across three nondescript Punjabi guys, looking as common as any other passengers. One of them was reading a Learn Tamil From Hindi guide. When asked why, the man told me that the trio belonged to a farmer's family in Bathinda. They have bought some agricultural land near Madurai and are starting a plantation and dairy business there. Planning to begin with Ponni rice, cardamom and black pepper using the modern farming techniques, they desire to move into food processing business. Wouldn't Tamil Nadu be too far and culturally challenging for you guys, asked one of my co-passengers. To this, one of them answered with supreme confidence - nothing is too far for us. Wow. These are the dreamers, the believers of our India, who make things happen against all odds. A phone call comes on one of their mobiles and a Tamil song streams into the air. I smile and salute these young men in my mind.

Watched a wonderful movie 'Disconnect' yesterday night. A poignant yet uplifting tale of technology-obsessed people who have no time for their own loved ones. If you like movies where the stories of multiple characters criss-cross each other as in Crash, Traffic, Babel, Lantana and Amores Perros, then Disconnect is for you.

This is the first book I am rating 5 stars. There is a subtle innocence in the writing which I liked a lot. Three short stories - all light hearted, breezy and easy on the eye. The conversational way of telling the stories makes them flow fast. The twists in the tales brought a smile on my face. This book would be a great companion during journeys!

I found Free Fall to be interesting. Though not much has happened in the sample chapters, the build-up looks promising and a gripping mystery seems to be in the near horizon. The only glitch I felt was the absence of any notation for scene breaks. At places I was confused when a new character would jump from nowhere and after further reading it would dawn on me that the scene has changed. Good work!

Really liked the character Virat. Reminds me of Marv from Sin City movie, set up in a similar city. My personal view: Being such an interesting character, I wonder how exciting it would have been had he been described in the first person. Gulab Sharma's part can be made more shocking and bone chilling, because I felt it fails to carry forward the wonderful pace generated in Virat's story. Highly publishable, after injection of some page-turning moments. Well done.

Pretty smooth read, but the sample chapters don't give me the feel of a thriller. A suggestion to BGB: For a thriller, please make the story available till the first big thrill. That would help the readers appraise the book in a better way. Good attempt nonetheless. Best of luck to the author!
