May 2014: Book Reviews

1. Matilda - Roald Dahl

Matilda is a children's book. I loved the audio book by BBC. I give it 4/5 stars.

2. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

I haven't read the first two books in the series but have seen the movies. Couldn't wait any longer to know the end of hunger games so read the book. The book is better written than other fast food effect books like divergent or 50 shades of gray (I fail to fathom how the later one became a bestseller~). I give it 3/5 stars and feel that there was no need to make 2 part movie based on this book.

3. Seven pillars of health - Donald Colbert

I absolutely loved the book it talks about 7 pillars of health - water, food, sleep, nutrients, exercise etc. Each pillar is covered in depth starting from what kind of water you should drink, what are its constituents, what are the filtering methods available, which ones are the best to if your body requires supplements. The book is targeted for Christians but the author does not over stress on his faith or religion. Jesus appearing in one or two sentences in the book was fine by me. I highly recommend this book, I give it 4.5/5 stars.
