Review: Man’s Search for Meaning

Man's Search for Meaning
Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The autobiography part was heart-wrenching. But the second and third parts of the book were based on pure psychiatry/ psychoanalysis/ logotherapy and most of the terms were difficult to comprehend. All in all, it was an eye-opener in many senses- how people behave when they feel that their suffering is not worthy, how they need a goal/ a meaning to be able to fight for survival, why humans hurt other humans, et al.
I am rating it 3 stars owing to its hard-to-understand psychiatric terms.

Review: And Then There Were None

And Then There Were None
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was a nice quick mystery to read. Very simple to understand. In the initial few pages, I felt like I was reading something similar to the TV show “Lost” as in both the stories, people are stranded on an island with murders taking place around them and these people are curious to resolve the mystery. But when I was halfway through, I realized it was nothing like “Lost”. I really liked the concept of relating a nursery rhyme with all the murders which were happening one by one. Nicely written, not at all complex. It’s a book which you would like to read when you are on a travel maybe, and can finish it in mere two days!
