3) TIMELINE - MICHAEL CRICHTON
The book is full of details.. there are places where the information and the intensity with which the author describes the medieval period is a little difficult to read... Definitely not light reading. The beginning sets the pace with which the story progresses ... by the time you finish reading half the book you are tuned into the language and the pace of the book. the book is a good read and definitely lives up to Crichton's standard. The ending is obvious but has a nice twist to it.
4) A 1000 SPLENDID SUNS - KHALEED HOSINENI
The book follows the story of Mariam, who is a young girl living with her mother. After getting married she moves to a different city where her life is inter twined with Laila's life who is many years younger. I couldn't relate to book as I have never been in any of the situations.But it made for an interesting read, just for the simple reason the book captivates you and you are transported into their world and you wonder if thats how it would've actually been ! All in all its a very good read.
