Another stupid book..!
by AK on Nov 12, 2009 08:29 PM  | Hide replies

Yet another stupid book..! Wonder why rediff never gets to write abt any books worth reading..earlier they tried to promote one useless piece of writing by one meenakshi and now this..! This seems to be kind of "remake" of Richard Bach's stupid writings..!

Jayant, its a public forum and I have every right to shout. If u cant get an idea abt a book by leafing thru few pages (which I did in a book shop even before reading this rediff promotion) and judge its worth, then u are the fool. If u cant do that u will end up filling your book shelf with all senseless books and wld have simply burnt your money - which only ignorant fools do!

Ak, I feel your comments on comparing this book with Riachard Bach's writing is totally irrelevant. It is very easy to criticize a book. While I am not at all saying that the book is good, just by judging from its cover, a the same time it is also immature to say that it is just another stupid book. Your comments would be relevant if you had taken the pains to go through the book and then noted your views.
It is really hard to be able to note down your innermost feelings and requires even more courage to be able to put it on public display. If nothing else, at least appreciate the pains that the author has taken to bring it in print.

Great to see so many replies to my comment – never expected! I think its my right to call a writing stupid if I feel so. These are writers who write stupid stuff by trying to make money out of people’s attempt to get a complicated view on a simple thing called life...! I am a person who view life simply…and think of questions like 'Why am I here' completely ignorant and stupid..!! I am sure we all know the answer for such a question...but still we want to get it all complicated with some senseless ramblings like the one u see in the excerpt given (Amtes and Medha Patkars don’t read or write such senseless stuff instead they act!).
May be I went a bit overboard in calling all Bachs writings stupid. I still rate his Jonathon LS very good. Its that which made me read all his other writings as well like Illusions, One, etc. But, once u read more than a couple of books by him, u realise that he is simply trying to play with words and complicate things which actually are as simple as 1 plus 1 is 2...! Those who've read Bach's Illusions will know why this present book appears to be influenced (as our movie directors get 'influenced') by Bachs writings - there its a book, here its a 'stick'!!Once one reads writers like R K Narayan, Douglas Adams, Wodehouse or even the recent Jonathon Stroud, one really cant prevent oneself from calling these kind of senseless half baked philosophical ramblings completely stupid!!

I couldn't agree with you more. Regarding Richard Bach, after I finished JLS, I was like bah!!! much ado about nothing. Just a rehash of pop philosophy. I guess there's a big market for such books, average people who read them and feel serious and self important. I guess they don't have the intellect to finish a Wodehouse!!!
