Flipkart.com: The Case of the Man who Died Laughing 0099525240: Book: Tarquin Hall (9780099525240)

This was my first book reading in a long long time. Read it in one go. Took me around four hours with double the number of pee breaks :confused: (ongoing problem with freaking kidney).

Enjoyed it a lot. Might read another book from the same author featuring the same lead character. I recommend!

I would like to know which of the other (older) fiction books you would recommend - For me to judge your taste in books & then think about going for it :D

i have not read books in a long time now. i was mostly into novels by john grisham, sidney sheldon and the likes. when i was in school, it was mostly hardy boys (!). i do not really have a specific taste for books. i usually read the books recommended by some friends so i basically loaned the books from them to read.

last book i tried reading was Flipkart.com: A Short History of Nearly Everything 0552997048: Book: Bill Bryson (9780552997041) which i gave up midway because it was getting way too long to complete. :confused: but it was surely entertaining.

Ok.. John Grisham from you & the remark from Finiancial Times about "Indian Poirot" makes me convinced .. Let me see if I get a chance...

I used to be an avid reader... Sadly, it is very less now...

I was an avid reader but then could not keep up with the habit as books became costly. Then came the Kindle. And pirated content. And am back to reading. I love reading, and hope Flipkart brings reasonably priced ebooks of Indian authors.

just finished reading them last week. I liked immortals of meluha more. they are decent, the story is very predictable but enjoyable nonetheless. got to learn some mythology too.
