Going into this book I expected a few things – a difficult to understand beginning , which later turned into a wonderful narration and finally culminated in a major convergence that really left you satisfied. In regards to those expectations at least, Erickson delivered… for most part.

I read The Name of the Wind way back in 2010, back then I didn’t have a blog and the initial review I did on Goodreads was less of a review and more of a monologue . So with a blog now in place and less reading being done by me lately there’s no better time than this to review this epic fantasy masterpiece .

Just wanted to let people know If they were wondering about my lack of post or interaction on the Blogosphere .
I have been really busy with work and studies (yes I’m still studying despite being a Doctor , since I’m still not a post graduate and ME WANT!) and to add to that I’ve also been diagnosed to have migraine , for those who don’t know about it ,it means I have like intense headaches once-three times a week and sometimes these headaches make me vomit and sometimes strong light or sound makes it worse.
Basically I am unable to find much of a reading time . So much so that I have been limited to reading only on Sundays , it’s presently me reading 100 or so pages on a single day in the week . I’m still managing to read some comics , but that’s easy since it takes around 15-20 minute for me to read a comic .
This lack of reading time and spare time in general has made keeping up with blogging or doing much of anything apart from working and studying really hard for me . Initially I did have plans to post reviews for books I hadn’t posted before or for Graphic novels and comics but again there simply isn’t much time to spare. Bottomline I don’t expect many post from myself in the coming months and while I’ll still be glancing around in the blog-verse and reading a few blog posts here and there , I don’t expect myself to be as active as before .So forgive me for the lack of activity and hope to see your lovely posts and hopefully things will get better for myself
Written as the final story work of the New 52 run , this is a must read for the introduction into what was later the DC universe rebirth

I have a rule to always try a different genre book right after having read a fantasy book , So soon after finishing The Dark Tower , I got my hands on this book and having heard so many good things about this book , I was truly drowned in the tides of hype of this book and started reading this with a lot of anticipation and a bit of doubt …

So it’s the first short story that Jim Butcher wrote in the Dresden Files saga , this was the story that Jim wrote to prove to his teacher that her suggestion about Jim writing a Modern Fantasy was a stupid idea , fortunately for him , She approved this story for a book series and now Dresden Files is one of the finest Modern Fantasy out there.

If you have read my past reviews of the series you will find that my views on the series have taken a lot of turns from being dismayed by how bad it was in the first book of the series to becoming a storytelling masterpiece in the next 3 books and then just taking a nose dive into the dull story garbage graveyard . Going into this book , I was very much dreading what might be in store for me , I ‘m glad to say however I have come out of this reasonably happy.

Well safe to say that my resolution of delivering one review each week has failed, mostly because Life has gotten in the way and I have been kept away from my books for a long spell . That said I have read a lot of graphic novels in the past and I have thought of reviewing those graphic novels until I manage to finish my present read . So if you were not looking for Graphic novel reviews , I’m sorry for you

The Dark Tower books have so far been quite an experience , starting off as an incomprehensive snooze-fest in the first book , it caught pace and become a stunning piece of fiction in the next two books, but the 2 books that followed The wastelands were really really dull and felt like a filler episode in the adventure towards the mystical tower. But I have a policy , I never quit reading , even if a book is bad and so here I am with the penultimate book of the Dark Tower series.

Stephen King is a world renowned name , even If you haven’t read his work , you must have seen his movies , or even if you haven’t done that you have at least heard of his name*. Compared to what he has achieved I’m absolutely insignificant in this planet and here I’m ready to write a blog that’s gonna tell you how much of a snooze-fest and overrated this book of his was.
*and if even that hasn’t happened to you , well come back to civilization man , stop hiding under that rock of yours .
