“The Fountainhead” is a masterpiece that can make one re-think one’s moral principles. The theme, the plot, the five characters, and their growth throughout along with Ayn Rand’s excellent writing craftsmanship make it a story that will remain with one forever.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5; Review by: Pratyasha Bhowal, Kolkata
The word “facade” should remind you of “face”. Some may show you their true face while others may hide their true face and display a fake facade.
We must always be prepared to make terms with Option B, when Option A seems to slip through fingers every moment, despite our tight grasp. According to Sandberg, certain aspects of life cannot be controlled, but resilience can show the path from despair to hope and give life a whole new purpose.
The word “Fabricate” should remind you of the word “Fibre”. You can use fibres to make a bad weapon or a good thing.
This book is great for readers who are interested in a fast-paced action-packed novel. If you love nature, you will love the natural bent here. The author has also focused on how a group of people may act when they know that they can trust neither each other nor the basic things we take for granted such as the air around us.
This is a tough one! Plagiarism has similarity to the word “Plague” that is used to refer to an infectious disease that we need to stay away from. Likewise, we also need to stay away from stealing, cheating, piracy, and well, plagiarism.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles is a gripping detective novel where Agatha Christie, the Queen of Mystery, introduces Hercule Poirot, one of the most famous fictional detective characters, for the first time to her readers. The plot has multiple characters and plot twists that keep the reader glued to the book!
Punctilious should remind you of punctures – small holes in tyres – that result in the release of air from the tyre. A punctilious person will not permit any such puncture or hole in his or her work that can result in compromising his or her quality of work.
This book is a must-read for everyone, especially because of the times we live in. Technology makes it possible for the governments around the world to monitor what we think, say, or do. Bots are able to shape public opinions on a massive scale. The 140 and 280 character limits on social networking sites have damaged our capacity to think critically and empathise with others.
Stale eggs or even un-cooked eggs smell extraordinarily bad, don’t they? The word “egregious” should remind you of stale and un-cooked eggs on someone’s face. Eww!
