“Why should I look at a book’s standing ….and decide whether I should like it or not? The fact that I liked this book, ….without knowing what Pudumai Pithan, Ka.Na.Su, Sundara Ramaswamy or Jeyamohan thought of it, says a lot about myself and the book.”

So far so good.

“Eventually, after reading more Tamil books, I might stop liking PS. “

This statement is in bad taste. In the first para, you say “I liked this book”, and in the second para, “Eventually, after reading more Tamil books, I might stop liking PS.” And this is what says a lot about yourself.

You either like a book, or you don’t like a book. I hope, all you meant to say was: “yes, I liked PS, but after reading many more Tamil books, I like some others even better.”
