After The Quake
This is a collection of stories written in response to Japan’s 1995 Kobe earthquake and each story peripherally by the disaster. Central character of each story live far away from physical devastation, which they witness only on TV or in the papers, but for each of them the massive destruction unleashed by the earth itself becomes a turning point in their lives. They are forced to confront an emptiness they have borne inside them for years. Thought I have respect for Norwegian Wood’s author Haruki Muraki but I am unable to find any X-factor in this novel.
I am giving 2/5 to this novel.

The Naked Face
This one is the first novel of popular novelist Sidney Sheldon who nominated for “Mystery Writers of America” and coincidentally I read first time his work.
Your client has been killed because he was wearing your raincoat then your personally secretary has been killed because group of people want some information about you from her and she denied. You know that You are the target for killer and killer had killed mistakenly 2 innocent people but police is not believing in you. And one night, you are about to leave your office and suddenly power gets off, some used keys to open your office (and you know that your key is with you and second copy is with police) and you calls to police but they are not believing in you. What you feel in that condition? Sweating…Fear…Stressed… That’s the style of Sidney Sheldon. I enjoyed this small novel which one is adopted for film too.
I am giving 3.5/5 to this novel.
