Inferno

Inferno

Books are a part of life, or is it a way to escape life? Dan Brown’s books are the best way to go on an adventure without even taking a footstep as Rummana Ferdous Fagun writes.

The everyday of 1971

The everyday of 1971

The novel ‘Jochhona o Janonir Golpo (2004)’ does not give you the political nitty-gritty details, the conflict and exploitation that led to the war of 1971, but it tells you about the social cost and sufferings that ordinary citizens have endured to win the freedom we enjoy today, reviews Sabiha Anjum

Demons: Nesar Nadim’s horror fiction

Demons: Nesar Nadim’s horror fiction

The debut novel ‘Demons’ is a commendable attempt given how English readership in Bangladesh, especially for the horror genre is not all that prominent. As a reader, however, I found the innate goodness of the protagonist questionable. Yes, Saad readily takes up his role as the gun toting hero who attempts the day in the face of this mini apocalypse, but it does little (spoiler alert) in the way of redeeming him of being an abusive husband, writes Riasat Raihan
