SpiderWeb by Agatha Christie

July 28, 2010 Leave a comment

I had heard and read so much about Agatha Christie so I picked up one of her books from the library.
I am just glad that I picked up this book,I just loved it.
I was just glued to the book ,there is so much suspense and thrill and it is amazingly unpredictable.

The crux of the play is the mystery behind the body Clarissa happens to find in her home and how she and  her well reputed friends try getting rid of the corpse without informing the police just to avoid the nasty things which would follow after that as she was expecting  her husband Henry with well reputed guest.

All the thrill and mystery on why her friends agree to help her even though they knew this was egregious.The play is written so well in such unsophisticated  language and its real thrill  reading how the real coup is uncovered.

The Catcher In The Rye by J.D.SaLinger

what do i say about this book …Hmmm
well its about this young boy who thinks everything around him is phony ,He does exactly wht he feels ,straight from heart,he has no second thoughts neither is he bound by any feeling of staid,he does things which are impromptu and has very little interest in his studies which is so common among the teenagers.As His hatred towards his friends burgeons he just walks out of his hostel to stays all alone for himself  and how he spends his time and does things which he had never done before .
How he abhors everyone around except for his little sister and the rapport that he shares with her.
Overall I think the book brings out the mind of a real teenager who is so eager to jump out to adulthood and is so confused and abhorred by others for his failures which makes him lonely and demotivated.

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Author : Jerry Spinelli

My Thoughts:

This is the most heartfelt and emotional story about this young girl who is so different from the normal horde,it’s really heartbreaking and sad about how other students in Mica shun her for being so different.
The story revolves around two protagonist ,the Stargirl and Leo.Leo who from the first day of stargirl in school is mesmerized by her and enchanted by every chore of her and is in love with her.
Stargirl never pretends and does things what she truly feels and her perception to things is so out of this world and this was the reason for her not being accepted by other students in school,they believed she did all this to become popular.But stargirl was different as her name,what she saw went straight to her heart.She found happiness and satisfaction by noticing and feeling for those things which others eyes seldom saw.

Leo who is boggled by every single and small task done by star girl and finally finds himself  caught amidst his unconventional love to stargirl and his desire  to regain notice of other students which he had lost as he had become part of shunning of stargirl,and he had become popular as Mr Stargirl.

Its a story about what huddles one has to go through on being away and different from the normal horde.
And about the inspiring love which keeps Leo embarked on the boat of life,where he no more feels lonely.
And the impact of selfless,kind,ingeniousness soul like stargirl who had become a victim of grisly shunning had left traces of her infinite kindness,selfless deeds and her ukulele in Mica’s  heart.
