Book Review- A Woman Unparalleled by Preet Sandhu

Book Title-
Book Name- A Woman Unparalleled
Author- Preet Sandhu
Genre- Self Helf/ Motivational
Publication- Invincible Publishers

Blurb- As a businesswoman, I have gone through several phases and have done much learning and unlearning to reach where I am today. As per my understanding, writing involves a deep understanding of life experiences and teachings. In this book, I have penned down all my experiences to light up the way for others in their journey. 
This book will contain everything starting from motivation, to information to experiences. This book will issue some of the major problems that we face today not only in our professional lives but also in our personal lives. While reading this book, readers will learn three paths of life, i.e. the paths of Identification, Realization & Implication.

Review- Reading this book on the eve of Christmas made this book even more special. This book is life journey of Preet and how beautifully she drew instances from her life and projected in the form of this book.

This book isn't the kind of self help book which we all are used to read but this one's quiet different in a positive way. Author talks about ups and downs, the struggles and how to solve them while conquering over our fears.

Language used by author is simple and book reads smoothly. This one's a small read so you can finish it off within 3 hours.

I'll suggest this book to people who want to read something positive and inspiring.

A sniper in the middle of a Mumbai mall? As the body count mounted, I was soon sucked deeper into the chaos unleashed by that shot. To survive and save those whom I care about, I have to become the man I left behind. I have no choice but to tap into a bloody past that has put me on the terror kill list.

Book Review- The Alpha Yeti by SUM

Book Details-
Book Name- The Alpha Yeti
Author- SUM
Genre- Fiction
Publication- AuthorHouse
Pages- 215 pages

Blurb- Every tribal land has its own tribulations and the Kasis were way beyond any hope or help, for what they were undergoing was terrifyingly unspeakable. It wasnt any myth or taboo. This one was true. The One God was as real as the White Giants. But, all the suffering and trepidation came from the impossibly aggressive Grey Giants. They were a deformity: a fallen imprecation on the Kasis. Somehow, a sensible Bhirendi, the elderly last of the Kasis, addresses the tragedy and rushes his people into the underground chambers of Ravaial before they are forced to face the wrath of the monstrosities that lately have begun to roll down from the White Mountain. With the situation only getting worse by the moment, the tribes hire a pack of ace hunters from the West. But, one of them freaks out and abducts the daughter of an estranged but once-upon-a-time famous hunter to only earn his ire. The hunters are drawn together into a strangely unwelcome land of doom with their fates sealed under the White Mountain. They soon realise that time is all they have left in the entire world when the Grey Giants begin their vicious play. SUM brings to you, The Alpha Yeti!

Review- The Alpha Yeti is the fantasy thriller novel by SUM and is enthralling story.

Book Cover and Title- Book Cover is beautiful. I loved the use of black and red colour to signify Yama. Book title is interestingly confusing in positive way. Overall Book Title and Cover are catchy and demands the attention of reader.

Language- Language is lucid. Font used for chapters is too cursive. Narration of the book is commendable and hooks the reader with the story.

Storyline and Plot- Storyline and plot is beautifully planned. Twists and turns in the book makes it un-put-downable. There were minor loopholes with the storyline but does not affect the suspense and mystery. Characters were justified properly.

Story is fast paced in some and slow paced in some chapters. Typing mistakes should be considered in 2nd edition of the book.
