Here’s our pick of reviews sent in by HT City readers

Title - Khalish; Author - Khalish Dehlavi
The book is an anthology of Urdu couplets written by Khalish Dehlavi. Dehlavi won the National award for Urdu poetry in 1984. The major theme of the book is integration and the poet wishes to convey a message of love and truth for all humanity. Khalish means an arrow stuck in the heart that causes deep agony.
Sangita Bhayana

- Unaccustomed Truth ; Author -Jhumpa Lahiri
Eight marvellous stories of Bengali families settled abroad compiled into one beautiful book. An emotional, touchy and realistic book, which brings us abreast with the real happenings around the world and gives us an insight into the lives of others. A must read for all ages.
Tarannum Khatana

Title - Kite Runner; Author - Khaled Hosseini
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini has everything —from happiness to sorrow, from smiles to cries. You will learn a lot about life from the book — and how people you love the most can destroy you. It’s not a book you will read again and again, but one you must read.
