Today is Sunday; I have many things to do, as yesterday’s rain disturbed some plans; One main work item is setting and dusting of my bookrack; Daily routine doesn’t permit me to look them regularly so most of the time, I list this task for weekend;

While doing this, I thought I should share my collection with my friends and readers; So here are few of them; Many has been lost as I can’t recall when and who borrowed them; So If you have any of my book, please return to me with late return fine; (:

So here are the different sections of my small home library; Read the rest of this entry »

New Arrival :: My Bookshelf

Posted on Updated on

Two new books in my bookshelf; Added on 22nd Jan, 2k11; This morning (infact last day morning) I went to anarkali Lahore; It was a bright sunny day; In start of bazar there are many stalls for books and magazine; Daniele Steel was placed at a prominent place so i picked two from his work randomly; Lets see hows they go on

I’m new to Danielle Steel so in start i got The Ghost and Loving; Don’t know her writing style and the themes of these two novels; I usually read  a author in row, like 4 ,5 books one by one to keep the continuity of one’s style; Before that i done with Sidney Sheldon, Robin Cook and Catherine Coulter; So where Danielle stands i will stare with you after reading them; Right now sidney is at top due to its simplicity in words but unpredictness in story weaving;

Master of the Game :: Book Review

Posted on Updated on

copy of novel i have.

i have been planning to write about this novel from many days but couldn’t find enough time; Though i post many other things during that but whenever i tried to focus this book, what happen next? i open it from some random place and start reading again; The most interestingly it took me nearly two years to finish it first time; I read it in many sittings, with very slow pace; But once its done, revised many times. One of two novels i really liked. One is The Alchemist and other is Master of the Game.

Master of the Game is a novel by Sidney Sheldon, first published in 1982; Spanning six generations in the lives of the fictional MacGregor/Blackwell family;  It starts from Kate Blackwell’s ninetieth birthday celebrations in 1982 and then we move in past, back to a century;

The best thing i found in this novel, and infact all other work of sidny, is that the story move at a constant and fast pace. No long complicated dialogs, after every few pages you find a turn that put you more inside the novel;  Same in Master Of the Game, Sidny covers lives of six generations in such a way that at every step the curiosity to get to know the next turn increases. I’m sorry i can’t give references from story because its all worth to read; Don’t want to lessen the charm of the story.

the date when i had this novel; next two images shows start and end of the novel; in between we pass 6 generations; click to enlarge.

In first term, the end wasn’t as per my expectations; Infact in reality i was lil disappointed. I was expecting some big turn from sidney’s unique style of story weaving .i.e. making unpredicted things to happen in jaw dropping fashion.  But after 2 3 revisions it start looking exactly same as it should be; What it was i’m not going to tell, you must read it till end and i’m sure if you start once you will not give it too much time to end.
