The second enthralling installment in Alex Rutherford's Empire of the Moghul series. 1530, Agra, Northern India. Humayun, the newly-crowned second Moghul Emperor, is a fortunate man. His father, Babur, has bequeathed him wealth, glory and an empire which stretches a thousand miles south from the Khyber pass; he must now build on his legacy, and make the Moghuls worthy of their forebear, Tamburlaine. But, unbeknown to him, Humayun is already in grave danger. His half-brothers are plotting against him; they doubt that he has the strength, the will, the brutality needed to command the Moghul armies and lead them to still-greater glories. Perhaps they are right. Soon Humayun will be locked in a terrible battle: not only for his crown, not only for his life, but for the existence of the very empire itself.
In this sequel to Larsson's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'm, Lisabeth Salander is back only she is twice as unorthodox and dangerous to know. As good as its predecessor this is a book you cannot put down.
DORK: The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese
DORK: The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese by Sidin Vadukut
In April 2006 Robin "Einstein" Varghese, a stupendously na´ve but academically gifted young man (he was ranked 41st in his class), graduates from one of India's best business schools with a Day-Zero job at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners, a mediocre mid-market management consulting firm largely run by complete morons. Varghese finds that he fits into the culture remarkably well. Or does he?
Through a stunning series of blunders, mishaps and inadvertent errors, Robin begins to make his superiors rue the day they were driven by desperation into hiring him. To make matters worse, Robin realizes that his mad, passionate, steamy one-sided relationship with B-school batchmate Gouri Kalbag might be over before it ever started. With things going spectacularly wrong in his professional and personal life, will Robin manage to achieve his short-term goal of being promoted to Associate in under a year and beat the record set by Boris Nguyen at Dufresne's Vietnam office? Will Gouri walk with him through Dadar Department Stores with her hand in the rear pocket of his jeans?
Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin "Einstein" Varghese is for all of those who've ever sat depressed in cubicles-and wanted to kill themselves with office stationery. Especially that letter opener thing.
Join Robin as he navigates his first insane year at Dufresne Partners in this first volume of the Dork trilogy.
