This weekend, we have new books for you to pick up on that casual trip to the bookstore. See what readers of Campaign India recommend for you:
Chariots of the Gods? - Erich Von Daniken
senior executive, corporate communications, People Interactive
Have you ever gone sight seeing on a vacation and wondered ‘How the hell did this get here?’ or ‘How is this humanly possible?’. If such sightings/ natural phenomenon astound you, Chariots of God by Erich Von Daniken is the ideal book for you! Daniken has covered artifacts like the Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge and the Moai of Easter Island. Further examples include a medieval map known as the Piri Reis Map, allegedly showing the Earth as it is seen from space, and the Nazca lines in Peru, which he explains as landing strips for an airfield. Interesting, isn’t it? A must read!
Under the Dome - Stephen King
, correspondent, Times Drive (Times Now)
Under The Dome works off a pretty simple premise. A giant, invisible dome suddenly clamps down on the town of Chester's Mill. Nobody gets out, nobody gets in. The premise is a fantastic take-off point for an exploration of how fragile any sense of social or political order is. As food, water and faith dwindle, the townsfolk start to turn on each other, all building up to the sort of fiery, apocalyptic conclusion that only King could paint. It's the master at his best, spinning an epic 1100 page ride that's part LOST, part Lord of the Flies, part Simpsons Movie and all spectacular. Why am I recommending it? Because it's the best sci-fi action film you'll ever read.
