Book review – The Patriots’ Legacy: Forbidden Treasure

The book ‘The Patriots Legacy: Forbidden Treasure’ is written by first time author Apurva Bhuta.The genre is fantasy fiction and I must admit the book did complete justice to the genre.

It is about these 7 young patriots who come from famous architecture and archaeological background families and who are now given the mission(should they choose to accept 😜) to find the forbidden treasure that was planted in a secret location by the famous kingdoms many many years ago! The only way to find this treasure is by solving the different clues found at different locations. This book travels through various countries infact continents in search of the ultimate treasure one clue at a time. You almost feel like you yourself are closer to the great mystery with each clue.These patriots themselves come from different backgrounds and countries and each have a somewhat unique personality. The research done by the author on each clue and each location (New wonders of the world) is really praiseworthy.

The writing is simple and easy to understand. The last 2-3 chapters personally captivated me the most, as I left very involved in the storyline.The middle portion was a bit too dragging and I feel this book could have been a smaller one (as opposed to 308 pages).Also the book starts off rather abruptly, which confused me in the beginning due to all the 7 different protagonists. But this was a clever trick by the author to intrigue us and the introduction actually comes in the 3rd chapter where things really start to make sense.

Also although I loved some of the characters,I felt there should have been more buildup on the individual characters, their personalities and their family background history.Well this seems like a series so you never know,maybe the future parts could be having more information on each character.

Well I cant wait to read the next part in this series as I really want to know how the story progresses and what their next mission would be!

Book review – From An-other Land

The book ‘From An-other Land’ is written by Tanushree Ghosh and was published around Nov 2018.

This book surprised me completely from the different stories in it to the language used in the book. Its a challenging read and one you would love if you are into complex storylines. The collection of stories in this book are literally like a window into immigrant lives- the sacrifices, compromises, adjustments, happiness, depression and all those complex feelings immigrants go through in a foreign land. That feeling of wanting to gel in yet maintain one’s own beliefs and culture is a common point in most of these stories. I liked the storylines especially because all of them are relevant to modern times, whether its associated to BLM movement, LGBT community, illegal citizenship, Asian work life balance, religious tolerance etc etc

Another important aspect are the women characters,who each stood apart, bold and strong.Some women going low due to depression while others fighting their own fears and facing each new day valiantly. You may love some characters and you may grow to hate some others.

Such immigrant stories are very familiar to our own life stories, we get absorbed into each character’s emotions and realise how similar the basic framework of mankind is whether its someone in India or in US.

Coming to the language and writing style,I would call it as difficult and intriguing because sometimes its tedious to understand the parallel time lines,which is why we would need to have our full concentration on the story. I quite enjoyed the style of writing as it was not an easy breezy read…I kept having questions…and enjoyed finding their answers too in the stories. The stories are unique in their own way,each addressing different but very important social issues. These stories are important as these enlighten us on the difficulties immigrants have to go through. We should strive to be better human beings and help one another in times of need or trouble.Unity in diversity! Representation matters!
