Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer

Hello Friends

I have read Jeffrey Archer after long time.

This book is the first one of the five novel series known as 'Clifton Chronicles'.

Though, as advertised its the most ambitious and the best work of the author till now. But, I don't feel the same.

Its no comparison to the legendary 'Kane & Abel' and 'First Among Equals'. Also, to leave the novel with the ending 'to be continued....' type, is not accepted in the present trend of novels.

Apart from it, the style of Jeffrey Archer is quite the same, and he is still the master story teller, but who might have told his best story before this series

The Secrets of the Nagas by Amish Tripathi

Hello Friends

This is the second book, I read by Amish Tripathi, as he hasn't written third book yet :)

The book, is second in the 'Shiva Trilogy' and continues from the 'The Immortals of The Meluhas'.

I will say, the author has done a great job in spinning the story and creating a treasure hunt type of thrill. But, at the same time, its not as interesting as the first one. Also, it again gives all the more feeling of reading comic book.

Book Promotion - From Cubicles 2 Cabins: A survival guide to your first job

Hello Friends

This is not a review, but a promotion excerpts by the Author, my friend Sanket Danatra

It is 3 am, the year 2008. Exams done, graduation in a month, convocation a week after that. Me and dorm mates were sitting and thinking about the two years that went by. A couple of years back, we were skeptical about how easy or difficult it will be to go back to college after having worked for a few years. No salary no more, the rigor of academics. Were we up to it? Two years and a MBA degree later, we are discussing life after IIMA. Looking back at how we ended up at this juncture, how different would the work life be with the new degree.

We concluded that, ‘Life is tough’ and ‘People are stupid’. And this applies to each and every one of us, no matter how smart. In retrospect, we were absolutely naive during our first few work years. And yet luckily things worked out for us.

There are thousands of graduates from various universities all over the country, who join the workplace with all the relevant technical skills. But is that enough? What else does it take to thrive in a competitive business environment? And to find answers to this was born the first book of the Elf series – ‘From Cubicles 2 Cabins: a survival guide to your first job’
