    Something strange in my experience reading Adrian Mole. I read the books while I was visiting Madras. They were so funny that I laughed loud several times and once fell off my chair.

    Several months later, when I visited the same books in Canada, they did not appear funny.

    Is it something to do with India and the British?

    Memoirs of a Geisha is one gripping novel.

    As the story progressed to highlight little Chiyo's journey towards becoming a geisha, I could not help but to think that the protoganist was a real person.

    So much so I had tried to look up for the poster of Mameha.

    Well, that simply means the author has met his objective.
    The title is afterall, aptly named a memoir...

    Kudos to Arthur Golden!

    Hi
    I read a book called "The Goal". This is a management novel.. really nice. The plant manager faces problem in his plant, and he gets a memo from his higher authority saying ... that the plant is going to close down if he fails to show improve productivity within 3 months.

    so how the plant manager increases the productivity of his plant within 3 months is the story.

    People those who handle inventory can try this ...

    I just finished Lawrence Sanders's first bestseller 'First deadly sin".
    It was a real Yawn inducing novel, at 600 pages, it goes on and on.
    It is a police procedural about a serial killer and the cop trying to catch him.The serial killer pov has lots of pseudo philosophical drivel. The identity of the killer is known to the cop by the 300th page. the novel goes on for another 300 pages!
    It was written in 1972, These days we have short chapters with not more than a few pages.
    I heard Lawrenc e Sanders other novels are better have you guys any idea?


    It is also interesting to compare novels written in 70s and in the 90s.The present novels are fast reads

    Hi Malligai.

    I have not read the Horse Whisperer though I had once attempted to watch the movie by Robert Redford. It was quite a bore, so I gladfully changed the channel. :P
