When Narayan Sambhan’s world fell apart at a very tender age, the time he spent in the forests that lay ample around his village resuscitated him. No one knew the forests and the tiger better than Narayan Sambhan. But the forests are mercilessly cut down and increasing loneliness invades his life. As he struggles to carry on, a remarkable incident takes place.

The Moon In the Sun is a tale in poetry set in the Himalayan Terai replete with mesmerizing sights, bliss and beauty as also nerve-wracking experiences that the jungles alone can provide and bestow. It is also a touching tale, in poetry, of the wonderful journey that life can be when the soul attempts to break free.

Review

The Moon in the Sun is a tale in poetry which is set it in a village of Himalayas and which is about Nature, Tiger and a Man.

This book is different from most of the novel coming out these days. The unique way of telling a story in the form of poetry, a book where nature is at the centre of attention and various emotions coming out of lines which rhyme is what sets this book different from most of the books.

Language used in the book is simple and easy to comprehend. The tale is gripping and poetry makes it easy to read, follow and cherish.

Book cover gives hint about the genre and is appropriate with the theme of the book. Title is very long and difficult to remember but goes well with the book.

Except for the title, this book is perfect in every sense.

I would rate this book 4/5 stars.

Altogether, This book is unique and serves us a beautiful book about Nature and poetry.

I would recommend this book to the nature lovers and readers who are looking for something new to read.

Book Review- Broken Radio by NIshant Nishit

Book Name- Broken Radio 
Author- Nishant Nishit
Genre- Fiction 
Publisher- Notion Press Publications 
Pages- 184 
Price- ₹190

Blurb

This book is not for those who believe in happily ever after tales. It’s brilliantly creepy, violent and extremely offensive in nature. It preaches a cult philosophy against an emasculating consumerist culture.
The story is a brilliant mix of transgressed elements held together by dirty realism. It focuses on characters who feel confined by the norms and expectations of society and who break free of those confines in unusual or illicit ways. Because they are rebelling against the basic norms of society, protagonists may seem mentally ill, anti-social, or nihilistic. The book deals extensively with taboo subject matters such as drugs, sexual activity, violence, pedophilia and crime.

Review

Before starting my review, I want to congratulate Mr. Nishit for choosing and writing this genre in the time when Indian Authors are going after Romance Genre only.
To start my review, This book is quite an gore and talks about “realistic” and “dark” things about our society which exists and still are called as “Taboo”.
Author serves us story of Nik and  Aditya, how they met, their parallel stories interconnected with Violence and Gore content. It was interesting to read about all this stuff but over the time it felt like author is off the track from the main plot.
Plot is interesting and new one. Storyline goes well with the picture perfect characterization of Modern Youth.
I also liked the way author was putting his thoughts through the characters.
Language of the book is repetitive and however it goes well with the theme, a little more of vocabulary would have satisfied my literary thirst.
Narration is decent and complements the storyline.
Book Cover is beautiful with the broken radio and some blood. It gives us hint about the possible content in the book. Title is interesting and catchy. Blurb is straightforward and that’s why it catches attention of readers.
Overall, Broken Radio is one the unique book written by an Indian Author and though, story seemed little blurred, it was still an enjoyable read.
I would rate this book 4/5 stars and recommend this book to the fans of gore.
