“Six Weeks to Yehida” – A Novel By Melissa Studdard

Six Weeks To Yehidah

Elmore Leonard advised writers not to open with the weather. However, Melissa Studdard, author of Six Weeks to Yehida goes and does just that. However, in her novel, not only does the opening work for her and her story, but it also gives the reader the feeling that here’s a talent that can do much more. This is an instance in which opening with the weather has helped the author bring a fairy tale quality to the writing.

It’s the story of Annalisa who is wafted into another world on an ordinary day with her two sheeps. The novel has several snatches of verse which adds to the book’s charm. The characters and their personalities grow on the reader and the wonderful vulnerability of the protagonist makes one sympathetic to her. Her adventures take her to bizarre worlds, lending the novel an Alice in Wonderland kind of charm. Bob the guides impresses, so does Kana.

It all ends when she realises that the magical world she has traversed was a dream and that for six weeks she was in a coma. This twist in the tale impressed me as a reader, and would impress any reader of this engaging book.

All through the book I could detect an Indian connection in words such as: Bharat Ratna, Sari, etc. Could it be that the author is a lover of India? In that case she should write a novel on India.

Review of The Princess in Black

Title : The Princess in Black!

Author : Upendra Dharmadhikari and Changali Anand

The princess in black

History itself has beautiful and energetic stories in it’s store. What when history comes in to shake hands with today’s stories.”The Princess in Black: An unheard story of Mughals”,co-authored by Upendra Dharmadhikari ( a history lover) and Changali Anand ( a cinema lover), is a fiction book which uses history to make a story thrilling and adventurous.

As the back cover says: ‘ The Taj Mahal is going to be blown off and with it the visiting ex-President of USA. Or so has been impeccably planned by Major Salim Khan, an undercover ISI operative. The only clue that the intelligence agencies have is the enigmatic Object No. 27, a rare Mughal relic that they don’t have much information about. History Professor Narayan Shastri, along with the best men from Indian Intelligence, try to unlock the code. And then there is Saima, the mysterious beauty who found Object No 27 in the first place. She and Professor Shastri travel through the annals of a history rich with deceit – bloody battles of conquests; the satin veil of treachery; and even the elegant, imperious walls built of redsandstone and white marble – to know more ofthe impending attack and each other more deeply. Can they stop Major Khan from unleashing his act of terror on the marble monument of love? Precious hands of time are ticking away: Tick. Tick. Tick.’

A simple and revealing cover design welcomes reader at first.Title ofcourse is attentive and to some extent does favour with the story.Also,the subtitle hints the presence of history in the story.About the blurb of the book,well-knitted and inviting and very-well shows the glimpse of the story.

Very elegant ambience has been created from the very beginning of the story,and the aroma of suspense and mystery was in the air. In the beginning itself it generates the needed ambience.From there on it keeps on revealing different facets of the story juxtapoxing history and present episodes.Author Upendra’s love for history resulted in the form of this book and Changali’s love for movie helps to give it a proper texture.

Writing fashion is close to the classy one, which works very-well with the story. The blend of history and witty imaginations pull this book in the category of an interesting and thilling read. The way facets of the story reveals its colour hooks reader completely to it. Articulation of sentence has been done in such an efficient manner that it never hinders in the reading journey.

Interesting characters are a part of this story that helps to make it more charming and alluring. The nature of the characters has been portrayed in a beautiful fashion,I very-much like the way it has been done as it is done not by the mere words but by the actions and roles.

About the downfalls of the book,storyline is quite common and to some extent similar to other stories that are available in the market.Also,some events to some extent are predictable.

Combination of thrill, history,suspense and little bit sprinkled with love.Worth a read!

Rating : 4.5/5

Review of From Ouch to Oops

Title : From Ouch to Oops

Author : RamG Vallath

From Ouch to Oops

‘From Ouch to Oops:just don’t give up’,is a self-help book that traverses through the choppy nodes of RamG Vallath’s life,his journey from struggle to success,his fight from the disease called CIDP(Chronic Inflamatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) he tragically suffered from.

As the back cover says : ‘RamG Vallath has everything going for him.He has studied at IIT,seen a 200 per cent jump in his salary and become one of the youngest circle heads in India’s telecom sector.When he steps into the role of a director at a major multinational computer hardware firm,he thinks he has it made.

But life is soon about to come crashing down on him.He is diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder that weakens his muscles.Mundane tasks like buttoning up his shirt, climbing down steps and typing on a keyboard become extremely difficult.To make things worse, he loses his job at a time when his annual hospitalization bill has gone up to Rs. 20 lakh.

But even as the chips are down and hope starts to fade,RamG decides not to give up.He becomes the cheerleader at home and outside, spreading positivity wherever he goes and choosing to tackle his challenges head-on with a hearty ‘yoohoo’.’

The script of the author’s life is not so extra-ordinary or completely out of the box,but RamG Vallath himself made his life extra-ordinary.We all face many ups and downs in our life,but the question here arises is how many of us learn to stitch the torn and thinks positively even entouraged with negativity.That’s why RamG Vallath’s story is different,he never slowed down,he just knows one road, a road to step ahead as he never brushed any problem under the carpet and this story teaches the reader same.

A simple writing style has been used by the author and he has implemented the story very-well which is noticeable. Author’s positive attitude towards life is lucidly portrayed in this book.He has very precisely lemned various facets of his life when luck has knocked him out.

This book beyond shadow of a doubt gives a shot in arm. A real-life based story that teaches one a lot.I would like to recommend this book to everyone who wants to go high and touch the sky amidst thunderstorms.

Every story has something to speak,leaves something to learn….

Rating : 5/5

Welcome to the world of authors. Here you find the latest news from the websites of Johntext Authors.

Johntext News

Well, Johntext is developing. That is a fact. Behind the curtains there are informations I do not want to hide. Why? We have no secrets. We live in a open society. So here is something for smiling:

Yesterday evening i received following emails from my Johntext Administrator:

A host, 49.77.148.218, has been locked out of the WordPress site at http://madhyapradesh.johntext.de due to too many bad login attempts.

The host has been locked out until 2014-09-17 00:46:01 .

A host, 49.77.148.218, has been locked out of the WordPress site at http://canada.johntext.de due to too many bad login attempts.

Well, lets summarize the facts. Yesterday soemone tried to loggin/hack  the websites Johntext Canada, Johntext World and Johntext Madhya Pradesh. He/she was not successful.  These persons were not successful. Here is the information the ip-address gives:

IP address: 49.77.148.218
IP country: China
IP Address state: Jiangsu
IP Address city: Nanjing
IP latitude: 32.0617
IP longitude: 118.7778
ISP: China Telecom jiangsu
Organization: China Telecom jiangsu

 

The ip-address is like a post address. It shows the location of its computer owner. Meanwhile I got a lot of these loggin attempts from this ip-address 49.77.148.218 . So I tend to say it happens not accidentally.

Anyway I love China and its inhabitants and I admire it most for its friendly and polite inhabitants and cultural achievements.  Besides: Any authors from China out there who want to occupy Johntext China? It is still free.

This example shows that it is necessary to keep ones passwords secret and please choose complicated and long ones… 🙂

Have a nice and wonderful day.
