Chocky

Author – John Wyndham

Year of Publication – 1968

Rating -4/5

I knew nothing about the author or the genre of his stories before picking this book up.I have always walked by ignoring the stack of Wyndham’s book in old Penguin Modern Classic Editions,in my local book-store .One day while me and my friend were browsing through the book-store ,he mentioned you should try John Wyndhams book.A few weeks later, I ordered this new edition from Amazon 😅.This is the story of how the author came under my radar.If you know nothing about the author ,it is better to go blindly into his work.If you have are familiar you know what to expect . 335 more words

Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym

Barbara Pym is one of those authors whose writing is highly readable. Everything flows and is gentle with wonderful descriptions and dialogue. She not the kind of author where you remember a line of dialogue or a phrase from, but you remember her and her pleasantly entertaining style with a dash of gentle irony. 549 more words
