The Various Flavours Of Coffee
The Various Flavours Of Coffee
by Anthony Capella
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars We only live once - Carpe diem - do what you like and share your feelings with those you love, 28 Dec. 2008
A fascinating story which is a testimony of "the more things change, the more they are the same". This beautiful story takes place in late 19th century, but it is as if you are reading modern chronicle of dealing and wheeling, speculation, human and women's rights and of course love and sentiments. It is a page turner with wonderful and unexpected twists and turns.

2.0 out of 5 stars What is the big hype about this book, 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: The Last Lecture (Hardcover)
I have completely failed to understand the hype around this book. What is so extraordinary about it? What does it tell us that we do not already know, what "life instructions" does it impart that are new????

Three Cups Of Tea
Three Cups Of Tea
by Greg Mortenson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A landmark book showing how education and development brings progress,, 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Three Cups Of Tea (Paperback)
Three cups of tea is perhaps one of the best humanitarian and development related books I've read recently. Greg Mortenson eloquently tells his ordeal of bringing a glimmer of hope into remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. He shows how when girls and women are empowered, they take their future and destiny in their hands.

He should be rewarded for his stamina and believing the in the people who he has chosen to serve.

Definitely he should be put forward for Peace Noble Prize.

I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially those who may have some prejudice vis-a-vis these countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars The value of time, 9 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Tanglewreck (Paperback)
Winterson is a superb storyteller. Just imagine if Murakami and Winsterson were to write a book together..... What would happen to time.... how would it transform......

A must read if you want to understand the labyrinth of time and storytelling

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the few unbiased piece of literature on Iran, 9 Dec. 2007
This review is from: The Struggle for Iran (Hardcover)
de Bellaigue is one of the few journalists who provides an unbiased and accurate picture of modern Iran. A great read for those who want to understand the complex and fascinating fabric of Iranian society and its politics.


A Thousand Splendid Suns

3.0 out of 5 stars Share the glory rather than the misery of your beloved country, 9 Dec. 2007
I wonder why Hosseini does not spend some time and energy telling the world about the wonderful and rich history, tradition and culture his country.

As Hermann Hesse said: "And even the unhappiest life has its sunny moments and its little flowers of happiness between sand and stone", so does Afghanistan!
