Messiah’s Handbook by Richard Bach – Book Review

Messiah’s Handbook is a great book. It is well written. I am sure the author understood life, existence, death, people, religion and society in a very deep manner. His pieces of advice from the book are precious and meaningful. The book inspires me to do what I want and live with the consequences rather than compromising and sacrificing myself. I take the author’s advice and choose not to live my life flatly. This book has changed my perspective towards life and living. This is a short book but cute and apt.. just perfect and I love it so much. Each and every page is a gem and one can always derive an inspiring message from the pages. I would like to mention a few of my favorite lines:

“The only thing that shatters dreams is compromise”

“There is nothing to which you cannot give your consent, there is nothing from which you cannot withdraw it.”

“No one can solve problems for someone whose problem is that they don’t want their problems solved.”

There are many more wonderful quotes like these. Richard Bach advises that one must pick this book, close eyes, ask a question, randomly open a page, choose left or right page and read it. He says one can find an answer to their question. I liked playing that game.

Book Review of ‘Stud’ by ML Nystrom

Stud is a Motor Club Romance and I am totally in love with this book. This is the second book from the Dragon Runners series. The narration by ML Nystrom is amazing. The story is totally engaging and I couldn’t put it away until the last page. Stud is an amazing character and I love him. Eva is one hell of a heroine. She is not a regular helpless girl but a very strong woman who can throw a punch or two when needed. She works on the construction site like a man but also holds a passion for sewing in her heart. I thought it was very very cute. Stud has a bad past and terrible relationship with his family but he finds love and trust at the biker’s club. The story says character, trust and honesty among family members are more important than riches and false prestige. I was not that much into motor club stories and biker romances and now my opinion has completely changed.

I want to read more and more books from ML Nystrom. I must say she has a magic in her writing. I can’t wait to read her next book. The pace is perfect, situations are very realistic, characters are strong and beautiful and the story is subtle. Stud is a wonderful read.

My review on Onlinebookclub.org

I am honored to be a reviewing member of Onlinebookclub.org. The first book I received is Guardian of Deceit by William H. Coles. It was a good read with plenty of drama, which I felt kind of too much for me. Click here for the review I wrote for the website.

 

A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter

I enjoyed reading A Defense of Honor very much. The story is set up in England in older times. It started off with Graham who was looking for a unique girl for himself to fall in love and ends up meeting Kit. Before anyone might start assuming that this is just another love story, let me tell you, this is a very unique love story. Kit is a very strong woman. I am really impressed with the way the story revolves around her, her guilt and her work of helping other women who are in need. Kit’s friends Daphne and Jesse are special in their own ways. I must say, it blew my mind reading about the Haven Manor, the kids that are growing up there and the dedication the three women have towards taking care of those kids. Graham who was aimless at the beginning of the novel finds a purpose after meeting Kit and visiting Haven Manor. Though he initially doesn’t approve of Kit’s methods for raising funds for the welfare of the kids, he understands eventually and forgives her. The story is also about how Kit was carrying the guilt and how she could never forgive herself. The point where Graham beautifully explains Kit about trusting God instead of taking things into one’s own hands is very nice. It hit a very delicate chord in my heart, as well. I totally enjoyed the book. Cheers to the author who established a very beautiful and strong female lead character. The story runs very smoothly and in perfect pace.

A Fist Around The Heart – Review

I never had a sister but I always wished I had one because I always thought I wouldn’t have to look outside for a best friend and an ally if I had a sister. The story revolves around two sisters Anna and Esther who born in Russia but sent to live in Winnipeg with the Count and Countess. Esther is elder to Anna, beautiful but emotionally disturbed. Anna is the younger one, tall, but stronger with independent ideas. Esther has her episodes now and then and Anna is always there to support her. Anna is shocked by Esther’s sudden death. The bond between the two sisters is incredibly written. This is not the kind of bond I assumed of with my imaginary sister, but its very different. They are two different people but the sisterhood always brings them together. They are always there for each other whenever there is a significant incident in their lives. Anna’s rebellious nature attracted me. She does what she likes. Anna and Esther both had troubled childhood when they were taken away from their parents, but they both did their part to the less fortunate by volunteering at various causes. The Count and the Countess were of great influence. Many other supporting characters like Vera, the police inspector, Nathaniel, Oscar are well written.

The books took me through the whole Great War period, the If Day and how Jews were affected during that time. I could say this is a historical book. I felt that the book ended too soon. I’m sure the author has her reasons. All in all, I enjoyed the book. I look forward to reading more books from Heather Chisvin.
