The Alpha Yeti - Book Review

There are some stories that keep you riveted to your seats. The Alpha Yeti is one such book. The story is set in Karya Kunj, which a small village at the foot of a mountain range called Nirmalya. The village is remote and lacks basic facilities. But the worst is still to come. The White Giants who were only a myth by then surface out of the blue. Their presence is felt only through a loud sound. Four mountaineers do encounter the White Giant. Will the White Giant leave them unharmed? Will the White Giant kill the villagers or would it be the other way round? Who is the White Giant and what is the mystery surrounding it? To find answers to all these questions you will have to read The Alpha Yeti.

What I liked the most about the book is its realistic setting. We are oblivious to the fact that there are many villages where there is still no electricity, no potable water and no medical facilities. Such villages exist even today, but we have closed our eyes to it. The book highlights the plight of these villagers. After mooring the story into realistic setting, it unfurls the adventure. The action scenes are very well written and the suspense will give you goosebumps. The Alpha Yeti is a book not to be missed.

The Invincible Weapon - Book Review

Sowmya Putta make a dashing debut with The Invincible Weapon. This is the story of Abhi, the prince of Vaishali, who is slogging at the ashram of Gavistha. His hard-work is not only to earn knowledge, but also to win the invincible weapon.

The book gave me a nice feel of reading Harry Potter in an Indian gurukul setting. The book transported me to my childhood. There are ample scenes were every person will be able to see his childhood. This speaks volumes about the writing prowess of Sowmya.

The writing is clean, free of any errors. The story is penned in a simple, lucid language. It sucks into the magical charm of its world and you wish to never come out of it. When we complain that our children don’t read, it is time to ponder whether we provide them with stories in the Indian setting, stories which they can relate to. Sowmya’s book fills this void. It is for this reason that The Invincible Weapon is highly recommended.
