When Anne Dunne vanishes, the prime suspect is her husband. However, what really happened to his controlling wife? Gillian Flynn tells the story of a man as he hunts for his wife in Gone Girl, a thriller novel.

Summary of the Book

On their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick and Anne Dunne should have enjoyed a serene party. No one expected the house to be a crime scene. Anne has vanished and Nick is the prime suspect. Everyone seems to believe that he killed her and hid the body, but even though his behaviour seems to reinforce that belief, Nick professes only innocence. No one believes him, especially given his strange fantasies and daydreams. When they find Anne’s diary, more facts come to light. The diary reveals her true side, showing how controlling and domineering she really was. Nick was considered to be the ideal husband in the entire town, but is there a possibility that Anne’s control-frenzy could have driven him to commit the ultimate crime?

Join Bilbo Baggins as he journeys to the Lonely Mountain to help thirteen Dwarves get back their treasure from a Dragon in J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy classic: The Hobbit.

Summary of the Book

Bilbo Baggins was quite comfortable with his life. He liked his hole in the ground, a hole with good food and all the comforts of home. Like all Hobbits, he didn’t care for adventures, and he certainly didn’t care for the Wizard Gandalf. But as he soon finds out, no one ignores a Wizard. Gandalf sends thirteen rather unruly Dwarves to Bilbo’s address, and volunteers him to be their burglar. Their mission is to steal a rare jewel called the Arkenstone from a sleeping Dragon. For this, they must travel to the Lonely Mountain, where lies the lost Dwarven city of Erebor. It seemed simple enough to Bilbo, but Smaug the Magnificent Dragon is anything but simple. Can Bilbo and his friends escape the Dragon’s wrath, or will they lose their lives like the Dwarves of the past?

In the wake of the Nazi-wrought chaos, one man began to decipher their cryptic code and offer humanity one last chance against the forces of Hitler. Alan Turing: The Enigma tells the story of the man who began the Computer Revolution, and who was persecuted for his homosexuality despite his achievements.

Summary of the Book

During the Second World War, the Germans were successfully passing cryptic messages past the borders, leaking important information to their home base. Despite the efforts of Churchill’s forces, not even the best of the British Intelligence’s cryptologists could crack the so-called “Enigma Code”. All seemed to be lost, there could be no victory without knowledge of what the enemy knew. It was then that the work of a scientist bore fruit. Alan Turing had been working on a concept, a dream he called the “universal machine”. Little did he know that nearly half a decade later, his dream would snowball into the modern personal computer. Turing’s work with the concept, delivering an electronic design in 1945, allowed the Allied Forces to crack the Enigma Code. This laid bare all the secret messages of the Nazis and allowed the Allies the chance they needed to improve their own cryptography systems. One would think that after the war, Turing would be felicitated. Instead, Turing was persecuted for his homosexual alliances, arrested, stripped of his security clearance and forced into a shameful treatment program. This book, his biography, reveals the story of a man who started the Computer Revolution, a man ahead of his time, who was forced to bear the brunt of a close-minded society.

The Scatter Here is too Great by Bilal Tanweer

Winner of the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize and also shortlisted for the DSC 2014 Prize, “The Scatter Here is too Great” by Bilal Tanweer is a cracker of a read. Bilal Tanweer’s characters are fragile, sometimes introspective, angry, filled with angst and well, at the end of it all, just human. I start this review like this, because I want you to know how the writer thinks and what better way to know that, than get a sense of how his characters are. I have always believed that it takes a lot for writers to dig stories from their lives, more so when they live incidents – one way or the other, and from which, stories are born.
Bilal Tanweer’s book, "The Scatter Here is too Great" – a collection of interrelated stories is just what the book doctor recommended for a weekend read. It is not frivolous. It is not your typical short story collection. The fact that it resonates and says it the way it is, is reason enough for any reader to pick this collection.

It is an awesome book. I love reading it its so cool that i am feeling to read it twice thrice etc. It's title is also so cool that makes the people think its a superb book. I also recommend my friends that the Diary Of Wimpy Kid is awesome. So far I have read three books of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid and I want to read three more books which are-The last straw, The ugly truth and the Cabin fever.I saw that the seventh book of the diary of a wimpy kid i.e. the third wheel on Flip-kart, i am even more tempted to read that book.So I finally say that DAIRY OF A WIMPY KID is superb, awesome, cool and excellent. I think Jeff Kinney should write even more books of Diary of a Wimpy Kid so that his fans like me can improve our habit of reading. So I finally say that-"I REQUEST JEFF KINNEY TO WRITE EVEN MORE BOOKS OF DIARY OF A WIMPY KID." I even thank Flipkart for selling this book.
