The Myth Of Game Development

The biggest myth of Game Development is that it is mostly about design. The truth is there is a lot more to that. Game development requires a lot of object oriented programming as it is focused on user experience as well as as designing levels meant for a player. Hence it requires a lot of… Continue reading The Myth Of Game Development

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

This was something that I just couldn't get into. Because of the huge paragraphs which made reading an eyesore. I guess this book could have won more of my patience if it had been shorter and less likely to make me want to let my eyes bleed while I'm reading this. The story did have… Continue reading The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

Oath Sworn

This was fairly decent. The story managed to grip me at certain sections and having me feeling something for them. There was some growth which to me is rare in many books nowadays. The story just took too long to get going or really good. But when it does it really had me to continue… Continue reading Oath Sworn

Requiem

I was expecting more when it came to the story. There were moments which really grabbed my attention but those overall had been few and far between. The story jumps around too much and the writing to me had been difficult to understand. It didn't give a good picture and was incredibly unimaginative and difficult… Continue reading Requiem

The Murder of Harriet Monckton

It wasn't written in the usual way and yet I can't say that the story didn't entice me. It managed to get me to read this highly wildly structured novel. And managed to make it work. The best part of the story lies in Harriet's own thoughts. That to me was the biggest part. And… Continue reading The Murder of Harriet Monckton

The Promised Neverland

Contrary to what many thought I never really got into the series. It got good then it didn't. And after a while I just didn't care about the series enough. It had a unique premise, I'll give it that but it also brought a lot of problems too. At times it just dragged. The story… Continue reading The Promised Neverland

Batman: Nightwalker

The one thing that bothered me the most about the story here had been how unbelievable it was. It turns out Bruce Wayne had to do community service in an asylum. I'm pretty sure that majority of all teenagers do not get assigned that. As most of them will be helping at orphanages or hospices… Continue reading Batman: Nightwalker

Escape From Houdini

I was expecting something more exciting. The story had managed to entertain me, and it still does but I feel that the middle was just too bloated. One thing that kept this series from feeling the drag had been that each book presented a different a mystery. Something fresh. Stalking Jack the Ripper in my… Continue reading Escape From Houdini

Why Won’t I Finish Divergent?

Till this day I have never finished Allegiant. Divergent came at the height of my teen years, with a movie and everything. But why won't I finish it no matter how bad the ending was. #1 The ending really killed it The ending was absolutely ridiculous, as much as the rest of the story was.… Continue reading Why Won’t I Finish Divergent?

To Charge Or Not To Charge

Asking such a question has always been something that I needed to ask as a beta. Because I got some authors who were trying their luck with me, often trying to get me to read their book for free. And I often told them that I charged for it? Why? Because what I do as… Continue reading To Charge Or Not To Charge

The Way Of All Flesh

This had not been something that I liked. It did really catch me but I felt that the rare moments where it was entertaining. But the plot was not well developed. The characters were sometimes really intriguing but other times just reverted back to chasing the plot where ever it needed to go. It was… Continue reading The Way Of All Flesh

Daughters of the Storm

If anything I am bored by the story. There is just too many of the POV characters and only around two of them are really well characterized. I couldn't care less about Rose and her love affair and the dubious nature of her heir. Her other sisters were just there. The only two which seemed… Continue reading Daughters of the Storm

Bone Lines

This was just not what I expected to read. Initially, I was keen upon the idea. But the story just took way too long to head anywhere. It was rather interesting to read about Elosie. But the story Just didn't seem to be working with her. There was a copious amount of description about something… Continue reading Bone Lines

What is wrong with YA?

I went through a phase of my life where all YA books I read was often terrible. For lack of better word. And it's as though YA had lost most of the charm that defined it for what it was. Or that it is just me, where I grew as a person enough to feel… Continue reading What is wrong with YA?

The Saint Of Wolves And Butchers

This was almost the same, boring and incredibly bland. The story just didn't catch my interest. It began on an interesting note, but then so many characters came into the picture. And then none of them were distinct enough for me to figure out just who was the main character. I feel that the main… Continue reading The Saint Of Wolves And Butchers

The Devil’s Bible

This was pretty entertaining. Although nothing compared to Bohemian Gospel it was still very likeable and I enjoyed the story quite a bit as well. It goes to the modern world where Mouse is on the run from her father. The story is competent. Incredibly do. It handles all the moments well, and gives Mouse… Continue reading The Devil’s Bible

When is a manuscript ready?

This is something that is more or less debated time and time again. Whether the writer should debate over the placing of every word or just let it be.I feel as though there is a time where I simply should just let it go. Telling myself that nothing is perfect and my work will not… Continue reading When is a manuscript ready?

Carols And Chaos

If there is something that I know I dislike about a regency romp, this will be it. Kate and Matt ate entirely bland and boring. They are proper as people are in those times. But unlike the one time it actually worked, because there were actually consequences. There isn't anything that really mattered to Kate.… Continue reading Carols And Chaos

Wildcard

This was okay. It wasn't anything that really surprised. It entertained all right but it never managed to really get me to keep on reading. The best part about the story had been the subplot of Sasuke. That was incredibly interesting and the ending surprising. I liked that completion because it managed to surprise me… Continue reading Wildcard
