Book Review: Night in the Country, is a story on describing the countryside at night with emphasis on the sound of some common night creatures, animals and things in the tranquil of night; the pictures give the impression of being colour pencil art – comprising of many darker tones of colours and are of blurry styles, it is like a visual narrative with few lines of the short story printed on the pages of the book.

 

Academic Use: This narrative is especially appropriate for teaching auditory readiness/discrimination in the age group of 4 to 6 years; the teacher can narrate the story along with the aid of an audio player for sound recordings of some of the creatures and things mentioned in the story.

As per my perspective, this story is best suited in audio visual format than in a book format for teaching auditory discrimination in preschool children.

This book is a good reading material for children of 6 to 8 years – with mentions of auditory words for vocabulary development, for encouraging nature sensitivity; and also a good resource book of art-works for children who are inclined towards creative-work of painting

The Italian’s Vengeful Seduction: By Bella Frances

Book Review

The vigorous title of the novel impeccably matches with the content of the novel; the author has remarkably penned the romantic equation between the two central characters of the book, which the novel entirely involves of, as an intense romantic chemistry yet almost without the trace of vulgarity and with a shrewd sense of humour.

Novel: The Italian’s Vengeful Seduction

Genre: Romance

Author: Bella Frances

Mills & Boon Modern Romance

First Published in Great Britain  2017

By Mills & Boon, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers

Book Review:  Stacey Jackson was Marco Borsatto adolescent fantasy, as a teenager every single thing about her caused some kind of chain reaction in him from brain to body, and he considered her special — in her explosive toxic anger she’d lied to say stupid things to him that had caused them both pain and had made her and his life spin.

 After ten years, Stacey by coincidence bangs with his limousine in a minor traffic accident, and then their passionate adult romantic equation begins …

It is one of those love stories which has a cliché plot; and on the other hand Bella Frances has powerfully proven how a writer’s optimistic attitude can greatly affect to turn a cliché plot into an awesome narrative. The author has not dwelled too much into trivial description of things, and has remained loyal to the main essence of the plot in her narrative i.e. the sensual chemistry between the protagonists; the conversation between the main characters of the story is likeable and so is the smooth narrative to easily fascinate the reader into the soft quality of the story, with no disturbing elements included to cause reader distress.

As a reader of this novel, I would like to say that the picture of the male model at the cover of the book does not match with the robust description of the male character Marco Borsatto  of the novel. All in all, this novel is an enjoyable read for readers of 16 years and above; and in the words of the author of the novel – the story can be termed as, “Original. A little more flavoursome.”
