I bought Micro from Flipkart, by pre-ordering the book, waiting in anticipation for the literal roller-coaster ride with the book. The last Posthumous work by Michael Crichton viz. Pirate Latitudes , was fantastic with all the old charm of Crichton books.
most annoyingly its release was delayed twice. And when it was finally published, the excitement was over way back.
The Micro has all the ingredients that made Michael Crichton books a wholesome read, but the end result is not quite "Crichton"ised.
The story has group of youngsters, big Jargon, Gruesome deaths, the unexpected help near the end and possibility of sequel in the end, but it still feels like the the characters are shallow.
When you read the book, you feel like you are watching "Honey, I shrunk the kids", with the same childish sense.
Well, It was filled with sci-fi stuff and all, but then literature is not just a text book.
Please stop writing in the name of Michael Crichton, if its not really written by the genius himself. We don't want another Bourne elastic series, where people write in the name of late Robert Ludlum and try to glorify crap books.
Phillips trimmers and shavers were always leaders in the category, which prompted me to buy one. And I do not regret my purchase. The trimmer does its work as it should. The hair length setting is fine.
The cleaning of trimmer is easy. The trim is painless. The thing I need to check with regards to different models of Philips trimmers is, what's the basis on which price differs, as all models have same functions and facilities.
The extended warranty of one year is there after online registration which is easy. The Flipkart delivery took some time, but it was on my doorstep before the agreed delivery date.
Half girlfriend is really a half cooked venture. The Chetan Bhagat books were never for the in-depth reading, but were always for light readings. But even light reading has to have some substance. The initial books of Chetan like 'Five point someone', 'One Night @ call center' when compared to the latest novel, stand a great distance apart. They were witty, fast paced and most importantly original.
Apologies if any spoilers are here, but the protagonist character is not a developed one, and story goes in a straight fashion. I don't know , what Chetan needed to portray, but the protagonist is depicted as sex starved one. The book reads like a Bollywood script. I could even name the movies with very similar plot line and predict the next twist. The book is fast paced, but not engaging (It may be repetitiveness of plot which made me read it faster as I knew what could happen next). I missed the Witty and satirical style of Chetan in this book also. Very few chuckles in this book guys!.
Though some part of book tries to show social responsibility of youth of nation, I give it to Chetan for involving it in the book. But even that theme seems out of place with the main story-line. He could have written a different book with 'Primary education problems in India' as its main story line.
Indian youth, though likes to read books and watch Hindi movies, watching books may be satisfying, but reading a movie is a different ball game.
As for the Flipkart delivery, I ordered the book on 'big Billion Day', and received it next day with neat packing as usual.
The new Sidin Vadukut book strays from his Satirical Comedy genre to a fact finding area. The book may not present a laugh at each page as his previous books, it is sure to tickle your funny bone. The book follows theme of finding a logical explanation for these "so called" facts. Whatever you have been hearing about India on Internet, SMS's, social Media may be just a myth, but Sidin finds a way to analyse and report these facts as they are, (No false patriotism). He urges the reader to be patriotic, but better be a sceptical one.
As far as Flipkart delivery goes, its the best. I pre ordered the book and received it on time and impeccably packed.
Kudos to Flipkart for the express book delivery.
Stieg Larsson has written the best-sellers. The book starts where the previous left off. the pace is fast and "The Girl" amazes us with her sheer brilliance at each twist in the book.
If only Stieg Larsson was there today to see his work getting such a great accolades.
In the fleet of new age Indian authors, we have got a strong contender in Sidin Vadukut. The satirical comedy is strong point of this book. The Dork series's very own Protagonist (or should I say antagonist) is like a common man, who writes his diaries and gives self importance in every small situation.
The Dork is really a dork. We are all waiting for the last installment of Dork.
"Who let the Dork out"
Bought the first electronic item from Flipkart.com and was wholly satisfied with the delivery. The packaging was great, with Bubble bags and outer box. The delivery was within specified time.
Now About the Product;
1. This is my first cooling pad, so cannot compare.
2. Before using the pad, the bottom surface of my Laptop used to be very hot, but by keeping it on the pad, its been cooler.
3. I used a software tool to keep track of CPU temperature, but didn't find any difference in temperature before and after using the pad. But then again I don't know if CPU temperature reduction is function of Cooling-pad or not.
4. I am using 15" Laptop, and the size of pad is perfect for my PC.
5. Its very light and looks durable.
6. Fan is single and in center, but a big one and good enough.
7. The USB connection for PAD has an extension on other side, which again can be used as USB port. Thus, no wastage of USB port. It is quite pointy on corners, but you wont notice it once an USB device is connected through it.
All in all, its a good device and certainly value for money.
I read reviews of this book from many sources and decided to buy a copy, and I was so disappointed with the book, I could not read further halfway through the book. The book is written from point of view of two leading ladies, who are deep in relationship issues. For some initial pages you can bear it, for some thriller ahead, which never comes, apart from extra marital affairs, deceptions, mindless banter about petty issues.
Agreed, that emotional side of the story is also important, but giving "Mills and Boon" kind of story under thriller genre is a crime. Even though I stuck with the book till halfway, I could not find anything more than psychological banter about relationships.
Some people (may be more sensitive) could find it engaging, but I would not recommend it. At least people should not call it suspense and thriller. I have read enough thriller books to understand difference between a suspense thriller and romance novels.
I fill like I wasted my money on the book, going by the previous reviews.
