Book: Bookless In Baghdad
Author: Shashi Tharoor
Publishing House: Penguin Books
The book is divided into 5 parts:
3. The Literary Life
There are 40 articles divided into 5 parts and the pieces range eclectically from cricket to politics and from Indian History to the challenges facing the United Nations. Leaving few articles, the rest of the pieces are so elite and Stephenian in class that at a moment of time, I was just reading words without comprehending anything and having any purpose. The topics are way too beyond the perception of the common man. That may even mean that I am not good enough to understand this literary piece. But as of now, keeping in mind the common class, this book doesn't serve the purpose as the title suggests and sounds.
Verdict: You can skip this one. No offence Dr, Tharoor.
