Inferno – Review
Fiction / May 14, 2017

Inferno one of Dan Brown’s lesser-known works was recently made into a film starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones.  A geneticist’s Betrand Zobrist (Ben Foster) jumps to his death in the opening scene of the film. Consequently returning as Robert Langdon, Tom Hanks  wakes up from a coma unable to remember what happened to him. This momentary “amnesia” is the basis to which a bewitching Jones starring as Dr Sienna Miller leads him to believe she has nothing to do with the virus  created by Zobrist – an global epidemic that is strong enough to wipe out half the population of the world. With one major significant change from the original story of the book it’s a race against time involving the much popular tale of Danto’s Circle of Hell to prevent the virus threat. David Koepp’s screenplay of the book is tediously slow at first. With the time frame of two hours it drags on a bit especially in the beginning but as events speed up and the beautiful scenery of Hungary enraptures one you can’t help being caught up in the action. Visually the film is momentous and highly appealing. Indian actor Irrfan Khan impresses audiences as a…

The Last Song – Review
Fiction, Romance / December 19, 2016

This is a guest post by Fizzah Irfan “A story about family, first loves, second chances and the moments in life that lead you back home”. The quote which attracts every reader and one becomes excited to know the core of the story. After reading the quote I got spellbound and could not resist without reading it and it’s a worth reading novel. It is basically a well-structured and organised novel. All the events and incidents are described beautifully that a reader would simply say ‘wow’ after reading it. The story was about a girl name Veronica Miller whose parents got divorced due to some reason. She didn’t talk to her father for three years; she lost interest in making relationships because she always blamed her father for the situations she had faced in her life. She was so angry that she deserted the one thing that she and her father had a common share, playing a piano which was very emotional act in this novel, which might be considered as a spiritual bond between father and daughter. She became rebellion until she had to spend one summer with her father in North California.  From this point her life changed…

Force 5 Recon: Deployment: Pakistan – Review
Action Thriller, Fiction / January 27, 2015

First published in 2003, Force 5 Recon: Deployment: Pakistan by P.W. Storm is a confusing jumble with whiny marines, witty one-liners, lack of authentic ground realities and too much stereotyping. The story, when ignored of obvious bias, is easy to read and follow. While the reader is able to see and feel through the characters, the lack of authenticity at several places makes it hard to appreciate good writing. Since it came out so soon after 9/11, the story has strong bias against both Pushtoon fighters from Afghanistan & Pakistan as well as Pakistan’s military. Synopsis Force 5 Recon: Deployment: Pakistan The hunt is on for the world’s most feared terrorist, hidden somewhere in the labyrinthine mountains of northern Pakistan, after his “sleepers” unleash a nightmare of fire and death across the length of the U.S. But the cold-blooded mass murderer Mohammed al-Zumar holds a wild card: a hostage American television news crew. An elite team of Special Operatives led by Sergeant Mac Rainey is already in al-Zumar’s backyard. Stranded in a Pakistani no-man’s-land with their cover blown and their extraction copter shot out of the sky, Force 5 Recon sets off to find and free the captives on their…
