Review: Crossing the Dead-Line: The Guns of Bass Reeves: A Historical Western Novel About Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves

Crossing the Dead-Line: The Guns of Bass Reeves: A Historical Western Novel About Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves Crossing the Dead-Line: The Guns of Bass Reeves: A Historical Western Novel About Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves by Douglas R. Cobb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beautifully written true story with tinge of fiction on the life of Bass Reeves. He is the first black US deputy marshal, he had the credit of arresting more than 2000 criminals in the wild west.

I came to know about this book through Facebook page on Men's adventure. The story is fast paced the author has written like a TV serial. Many of the chapters are gripping and soul stirring.

Review: Sitha Jaalam

Sitha Jaalam Sitha Jaalam by Indira Soundarajan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A simple book about couple of Siddhars, as I came to know about Siddhars from Mi.Pa.Somu's two bound volume "Siddhar Elakiyem".

Bit disappointed the author has not touched or gone into much details. In the end the author promises that he will write about them in his future book. Waiting eagerly.

Review: Charlie Chaplin: A Life From Beginning to End

Charlie Chaplin: A Life From Beginning to End Charlie Chaplin: A Life From Beginning to End by Hourly History
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A short book about the life of Charlie Chaplin from Hourly history. Who will forgot his tramp character and the movies like Modern Times, The Kid, City Lights and Great Dictator.

His characters were cast out from his childhood miseries. The short mustache Chaplin used has a back story that he looked young and he was made to put mustache to make him look older. All Chaplin needed for a comedy movie is a park, a policeman and pretty girl. The author has covered the failed marriages of Charlie too.

It is a revealtion for me that Edgar Hoover gave that much torture for his career to end and relocate from US.

The book has enough information for a beginner. Highly recommended to Chaplin fans.
