I bought the book assuming it would be a personal voyage with deeper insights, but it felt too guarded to me in parts. As a follower on Instagram, it felt exactly like the posts Shivya puts up regularly. I guess I was expecting more? Special mention to the cocoa story though Sep 28, Kavya Suresh rated it it was amazing. Sheer Brilliance. Re-evaluating life right now.

If I have to take one thing from the book it's "Una Vida" - One life.. The Shooting Star is not a travelogue or a itinerary or a collection of short stories. It's all of them and more. Shivya is very relatable, with respect to her thoughts, the only difference between her and us is that she puts her thoughts to action and is braver than most of us. I enjoyed the first part of her.. I think I can call it a "memoir" I expect this book to become a se Sheer Brilliance. So many of her experiences, I can only hope to recreate.. I teared up quite a lot, either because I longed for what she had or because I knew I would never be able to.
It's an experience to go through the book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Shooting Star - A glimpse isn't enough! Feb 09, nalini singh rated it did not like it. I mean it's ! Oh wait, her mission in life is to live like her sack carrying ancestor nomads..
Building a community is more powerful than gaming the system
That should be enough to change the world I guess? I am beginning to have the urge to publish my diary I kept as an 18 year old- random thoughts, new types of intoxication, discovering things about the world from a selfish point of view! Maybe it will pay for my recreational expenses as well :D View 1 comment. Nov 08, Ishani rated it really liked it. I am glad I picked this one up. So this one is not a piece of literature, the content is not ornamented Glad to see how simple flow of words could connect us to actual experiences. The only style in which she wrote this book is what she felt, what she did and what she saw!
And why I liked this book so much is because through her words and stories I somewhat got a glimpse of what it would have been like if only I too were as brave as hers Sep 18, Siddharth rated it it was amazing. Shivya's book can hold its own among the great travel memoirs of the past. Her writing is lucid and heartfelt. She challenges societal conventions and provides a peek into the human journey behind the glamorous facade of modern day travel.

In , Shivya Nath, a year-old Indian girl hailing from a small town in Dehradun, decided to cut off all ties with her mundane corporate job to travel the world. Till date, she has traveled to over 50 countries and was featured on the cover of NatGeo Traveller India and various other international publications have written articles about her audacious journey across continents around the globe.
The shooting Before discussing the book, I would like to offer a tidbit about her background. The shooting star is a Travel memoir by Shivya Nath wherein she shares with us the menagerie of experiences she gained during her solo trips. Rather than narrating the events in chronological order, she chose to divide the book chapter wise, each of which recounting the incidents which impacted her the most.
The tone of the book is never the same. Every chapter showed a glimpse of the various shades of her character. The narration clearly reflects her immense passion for exploration. Being a Wanderlust, I could feel a strong sense of kinship brewing between us as I read more and more about her escapades. The Descriptions were so vivid and being a travel blogger, her writing enabled me to see the world through her eyes.
I found myself silently striding beside her through the dense Amazon forests, trekking up the snow-capped mountains, guided by nothing but her voice narration. That being said, the only concerning issue which I still have is - Money. Born in an urban family, she had the privilege to pursue higher studies in Singapore where she got her first job in the Singapore Tourism Board.
But I just can't fathom how she was able to travel to so many countries on a shoestring budget. No freelancer would have that much financial freedom to pursue such expensive endeavors. She didn't present a clear picture of about how she managed to pay for the expenses. Very little information was provided about that.
Not everyone has that sort of liberty to quit the job and embark on the path of uncertainty with a hollow pocket. So I found it a bit hard to relate to her. But overall, the book served as a quick escape from reality for me. Mar 22, Priya Dharshini rated it really liked it.

If you are looking for a chronological memoir of a girl justifying why she chose to quit a lucrative job and travel solo to the remote parts of this big bad world, then this book is not for you.
This is a book splattered with memories, emotions and stories of a small town girl, finally living her life by her terms. You travel across the globe as her fleeting memories fly by.

In a single chapter, you'd have traveled from the remote corners of Guatemala, Africa, to the vast expanses of the Rann of Kutch only to finally end up in a little house with red roof nestled in the hill station of Dehradun. Oct 18, Geevika Bhatia rated it really liked it.
I have been following Shivya's Travel blog - The Shooting star, since it was introduced to me by a friend from Dehradun, few years ago. I love to read her blog posts as they give a totally different perspective unlike any other travel blog out there, most of which are just contributing to over tourism. Ok, yeah, I know this review is not about her blog, so let's talk about the book. Before picking up this book, I was wondering how it will be any different from her blog.
Why would a travel blogger I have been following Shivya's Travel blog - The Shooting star, since it was introduced to me by a friend from Dehradun, few years ago. Why would a travel blogger would write a travelogue? On her blog she writes regularly, so is there anything still left to share? And the answer is Yes!
I must applaud Shivya as you have marvelous story telling skills. For instance, the meteorite's approach toward Earth caused a heat wave, while the meteorite itself proceeded to float on the surface of the ocean.
In reality, no such heat wave would have been caused, while the meteorite would have plunged to the sea floor, causing a tsunami. Jean-Marc and Randy Lofficier deemed the antisemitism a "sad moment" in the series, awarding the story one out of five stars. Tintin] to rid himself of the bastard [i. Haddock] and to preserve the integrity of his former values", pointing out that the first thirteen pages are devoted purely to the boy reporter.

It seems to me that in my entire panoply of bad guys there are all sorts; I have shown a lot of "villains" of various origins, without any particular treatment of this or that race We've always told Jewish stories, Marseillaise stories, Scottish stories.
But who could have predicted that the Jewish stories would end as we know now that they did, in the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz? How did the man who had so eloquently defended the Native Americans in Tintin in America and the Chinese in The Blue Lotus , who only three years before denounced fascism in King Ottokar's Sceptre , become a propagandist for the Axis remains hard to understand.
