Wow! I did NOT see that coming! With mystery novels, usually the author builds up the story so much that the readers anticipate a mind-blowing end, and if it isn’t close to that, we get highly disappointed. With a plot like this one, there are many expectations and one could easily be deceived by a fantastic start to the novel, without any real meat to the story itself. To be fair, this novel was highly gripping right until the end. In fact, I was up all night trying to finish the last few chapters. Of course, it didn’t help that I had work the next day and I had to rely on heavy doses of caffeine to keep myself awake, but it was worth it, haha!Continue reading “The Silent Patient – Review”
The Killing Lessons – Review
I was looking for an interesting read in the huge pile of books that lay before me during a book sale and at that instant, The Killing Lessons popped up and lay itself in front of me. And when the cover looks like that, you have no choice but to grab it before anyone else even gets a glance. Believe me, I literally pounced to get this book off the table. Have you read the disclaimer on the cover? Do not read this. No reader deserves to be terrified like this. How could I let it go?
And then there were none – Review
Agatha Christie. What can I say about her? A mastermind, truly. She was the one who first introduced me to the world of crime, needless to say, I have been hooked ever since. Her work is still considered to be an epitome of sheer perfect crime novels. Every book she has written is mind-boggling. I have always read her books at such a fast pace, my heart racing, reading them at a stretch because I couldn’t put them down. But this one tops them all! It is an extraordinary, gripping and timeless novel!
