Rating: 1/5

Want to know how much shitty a book can be? Try this!

Ancient civilisations always interest me. I love knowing about the past and I guess everyone loves it. Obviously, I was excited to read this, but all I found in this book was mini boring history book full of dates and other irrelevant stuff! (my academic history book is umpteenth times more interesting than this! )

The Secret Life Of Bees

Rating: 5/5

 

One of the best books I ever read!

The description, The emotions, The portrait of characters & The plot, all of them are blended to perfection.

The story consists of a tragedy and how the protagonist overcomes it. I never like to talk about the story as I don’t want to ruin the reader of the pleasure of finding the exact plot while reading the book. (If you want, you can read synopsis on Goodreads)

I am proud to put this book on the shelf consisting the other masterpiece “The book thief”, both of them encapsulated me like no book ever did.

The book gives the glimpse of life during Italian Renaissance era.

The best thing about ‘hour history series’ is that it is totally based on facts (not opinions) & is short enough to complete in a sitting 🙂
