1. Clicking of Cuthbert– PG Wodehouse
It is a collection of Golf Short Stories by the amazingly witty writer PG Wodehouse.
At the end of the book, I dont think anyone will be able to resist dreaming about Golf .
the ’’Coming of GOWF’’ and ’’Clicking of Cuthbert’’ are one of my favourite short stories in the book
2.Inscrutable Americans – Anurag Mathur
This is a book where a small town boy gopal, who hasnt travelled more than 10 km frm his hometown, goes to the United States of America. What follows is a laughter riot about his many first-time experiences (’’having good time drinking 37 glasses of Coca Cola’’ or ’’’’If Grandma hear that I am cleaning own latrine, she is starting to sing holy songs again’’)
Mathur has a endearing writing style punctuated by a very ’’indian english’’ which draws the protagonist closer to a reader’s heart.
3.Swami and Friends – R.K.Narayanan
I think this is a real classsicc of a humorous book.R.K.N undoubtedly possesess a subtle extremely effective sense of humour which comes across in this book. The best part of the book that i loved is the Tiger and goat story! Definite Must Read .
Onto a not -so- light note
4. Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand
One of the few books I’ve read which inspires you to look inside and ponder on What you’ve achieved and what you’ve really stood up for. I loved the central characters(John Galt, even d’’anconia) and have wished ever since that I could be like them! Ayn’s philosophy of Objectivism is awe-inspiring and I wish we had more writers of her genre
5.Lord Of the Rings – JRR Tolkien
No introduction needed for this.One of the greatest masterpieces ever written! Kudos to Tolkien for coming up
with this fantasy world and driving my imagination to great heights. I love the fact that Tolkien dint think it necessary to draw parallels to this world and his invention of new words(’’tweens’’ etc) throughout the book. Thankfully the movie was veryy well taken and it was ALL that I had imagined after reading the book.
A Fabulous Experience!
I wish i could write about more books! To mention a few more MUST-READS – Da Vinci Code (although his later books had the same theme and the unpredictable ending got predictable too),
Catcher in the Rye and ANY one of Michael Crichton’s novels.
