Shiv Ramdas has carved a name for him in the Indian sci-fi genre. I enjoyed reading this book because this was a refreshing detour from the mythology and fantasy books dished out by Indian authors these days. I am sure that other readers would enjoy this book too!
The word “face-tious” should remind you of the phrase “making faces”. People sometimes make faces to tease someone or make fun of something, even in a serious situation!
The word gadfly contains the word “fly” – the winged insect that flies through air and often annoys us. Thus, gadfly should remind you of an annoying and irritating person who keeps buzzing around!
No philosophical treatise worth its salt is ever a light read. And “The myth of Sisyphus” is particularly dark, considering this is one of the seminal explorations of Absurdism.

The word “facet” should remind you of “face”. At one time, we can only see one side or face or “facet” of something. Remember thus!
“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.

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.
