Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me -
The Fountainhead - I read this book long ago..... long long ago..... but I still remember what Howard Roark taught me - you don't need to fit in. Your uniqueness is your biggest asset. Believe in yourself and you can quonqer the world. Ayn Rand weaves in and out of philosophy and story in this fantastic book of hers. A must read. (I haven't read the other acclaimed Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged, but I did manage to read a play by her - It goes by the name of The Night of January 16th, and is simply awesome. I vaguely recall a Zeenat Amaan - Shekhar Kapur starrer based on this play)
The Rainmaker - This is my favorite John Grisham work. Though I have read many of his novels, the tale of Rudy - the young rookie lawyer remains my all time favourite. Its laced with believable characters - his over enthusiastic business partner, his 80 yr old landlady and the victim of domestic abuse who he falls in love with. If you read this book and like it, please don't watch the movie. They've butchered the story. I only tolerated it because of Matt Damon!
Love Story - The Classic Segal. The tale of Jenny and Oliver that I read again and again and again......
Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons - They are teamed as one because they are a series. The web of fact and fiction that Dan Brown weaves leaves the reader spellbound. These two books are page-turners all the way. Robert Langdon as the celebrity symbologist professor hops all over France, England and Italy, either saving the world, or his own hind!
Lord of the Rings - The mammoth tale of magic, mystique and triumph. Though boring at times, the completion of this saga definately gave me a satisfaction of having completed the book!
Five Point Someone - Chetan Bhagat's foray into writing. A world of young adults. Its funny, realistic, and pretty much captures the life in an engineering college - Right from overload of assignments and quizzes to rotten canteen food!
To Cut A Long Story Short - Though I'm not a huge fan of Archer, I've enjoyed reading his short stories
And finally, all the kiddie books I've read - Right from Tinkle to Archies, from Nancy Drew to Hardy Boys, from Famous Five to Animorphs - I've relished them all.
