Teaser Tuesdays: Fingersmith

Teaser Tuesdays: Fingersmith

by

In spite of an unpromising start, I ended up really loving Fingersmith. This is a very Dickensian tale that involves orphans, asylums, devious plots, and yes, a touching love story.

Teaser Tuesdays: The Night Watch

Teaser Tuesdays: The Night Watch

I read The Night Watch a couple of weeks back, and can’t say I loved it. It was very different from the usual Sarah Waters style – experimental in its writing and tone, and it took me some time to get into it.

That said, the writing is beautiful, simply sublime. In terms of writing and maturity, this book about three lesbians in World War 2 is probably the best book she’s written.

Mandarin Calling at Oko, Lalit Ashok

It’s been a long, long time since I had some good (and I mean gooood) Pan-Asian food. So when I got an invite to come try the Mandarin Calling food festival at Oko in Hotel Lalit Ashok, I didn’t think twice before accepting.

I’ve visited Lalit Ashok several times before, but it’s been mostly on work – seminars and conferences, and the like. This was my first time there dining at a proper sit-down restaurant.

The Irish House

K and I went for drinks and dinner with friends last Friday night.

Usually, we don’t go out alone together as one of us has to stay home with the kids, but this time, it was my birthday weekend, and so both of us decided to make a night of it.

We hadn’t planned where to go, but when an invite dropped into our inbox inviting us to the newly opened Irish House resto-bar in RMZ EcoWorld, it sounded fun, and it was close by to our place (a huge consideration when we accept blog invites).

So we went, and we ended up having a total blast.

There are some books that draw you in from the very first sentence itself. Very powerful, and reflects the tone of the rest of the story beautifully. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it sets up for a very great book. I loved this opening sentence from Exit West by Mohsin Hamid.
