Book Review: Misery by Stephen King

Book Review: Misery by Stephen King

Annie Wilkes -noun: A crazy ass bitch who will go to any extent to harm the person who has depressed her.

Wow. The book is a beauty. A perfect novel with a perfect plot, suspense, brutality, unexpectedness, thrill, it has everything. A nurse who has found her favorite writer in a wrecked state, brings him home rather than taking him to hospital, treats him with dope, makes him burn his manuscript which he thought will prove to be a bestseller and then makes him write a book for herself only, because he had killed her favorite character in the previous novel. She is crazy, stubborn, strong and as much as one would hate to say, SMART. She is Annie Wilkes and this is what she can do to you if you depress her.

So all you cockadoodie brats, who have not yet read this book, do it as soon as possible or else, you’ll find a wife or a best friend like Annie Wilkes.

Book Review: My Sister’s Keeper

I wanted it to be non depressing after I read ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. It pretty much lived up to it, and then, the end. What the hell did Jodi Picoult think? It wasn’t like a stream of tears rolled down, leaving me in shambles to not think about what has actually happened, (because I think I’m made of graphite. It sucks. Sometimes.) but, is it really necessary to kill someone to make the book a bestseller? Can’t there just be a happy ending?

A girl who has just hit teenage, becomes brave enough to file a lawsuit against her parents while her elder sister is about to die and she is the only one who can save the sister, the judge appoints a guardian-ad-litem who happens to be the girl’s attorney’s lover (Judi must be watching some Bollywood flick while writing it) and just as the girl wins the case, on a rainy day, she meets with an accident and passes away. At the end, the other sister, who nearly died, lives like nothing ever happened to her.

4 out of 5 stars for the whole book, except the passage after the judge’s ruling.

Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Book Review: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

I haven’t really done this thing before apart from just writing some words at goodreads.. So it was my best friend who made me read this by asking me every day if I have read it or not. Anyways, back to the book.

The book is indeed beautiful. How a girl suffering from cancer and thinks of herself as a grenade founds the most perfect guy for her, how he uses his life wish for her so that she can meet her favorite author who has gone to Netherlands even though he has just got to know that he will not have much longer to live for, just for the girl, whose (remaining) life’s mission is to get all those questions answered by the author of the book. It tells about the true love as the guy leaves behind some of his feelings for the girl to the author so that he can write a eulogy for her because he did not last the girl he loved.

On the other hand, I disliked the book. I simply hate emo stuff. Specially where people die. That is why I have hated Chamber of secrets and Half blood prince for their endings. The thing behind it is that I have experienced losing people at such a young age. I don’t want someone else to experience it. It hurts so badly to think of someone giving you memories and going away from you forever. Same goes for the books. I don’t think of them as fictional characters any more. I start believing that this is all real. The worst thing is that I’m a dry person. I just can’t cry to take that out and then it bugs me inside.

Any ways, you should read this book. Just like a couple of other people that I know, you will love it.
