James Gleick's story begins at the turn of the 20th century, with the young H. G. Wells writing and rewriting the fantastic tale that became his first book, an international sensation: The Time Machine. A host of forces were converging to transmute the human understanding of time, some philosophical and some technological - the electric telegraph, the steam railroad, the discovery of buried civilizations, and the perfection of clocks.

Holiday for the Hostile, second book in the Hostile series, is probably even stranger than the first. Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, reluctantly find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather's hovel in Ireland. Who will escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell? A gripping paranormal thriller with a splash of horror.

In a rundown area of Manchester, inside a bathroom in a small, terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, an unfathomable, powerful entity infiltrates 12-year-old Serena's life with disastrous effects. The enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena's life, but threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those people who for some reason have earned the strange girl's displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena.

This a cheap literature book. The book has no literature value. A bad story too!

If you love books by Shakespeare or Ruskin Bond or Dan Brown or JRR Tolkien etc., don't buy this book to waste your time- you've already read better books.

I got this book in Kindle Store for Rs. 5. That's why I bought this. And I struggled with myself to finish this book (only because I always finish a book I start). After reading this book, I've never read another Chetan Bhagat.

The only positive side is the realistic depiction of a Delhi housewife (also call center worker).

This book is unrealistic, bogus and worthless . Was waiting when it will it finish , It was boring

The last thing she needs after running from one monster is to land in the lair of the devil. Twenty-one-year-old Ember flees her past with soot on her face, ash in her hair, and a promise. She'll never let another man take away her freedom and treat her like she means nothing. But that is exactly what Maverick Gunn, leader of the notorious Harbingers of Chaos motorcycle club, seeks to do from the moment his lethal gaze locks on her. He burns her with every look. Every touch. Every word.
