Review: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

My favourite fantasy novel will always be Harry Potter. But my nephew and my sister made me read this – Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. It was a fun read.

Review: The Golden House by Salman Rushdie

A very grande story line created by Salman Rushdie. A powerful real-estate tycoon Nero Golden immigrating to the States under mysterious circumstances, he and his three adult children assuming new identities, and moving into a grand mansion in downtown Manhattan.
