BOOK REVIEW: Into The Water by Paula Hawkins

Published May, 2017 by Riverhead Books

Pages: 352, Kindle Edition

This could have been the thriller of the year, just like The Girl on the Train, the successful book that came and took our breath away in 2015 which still holds the same essence and qualities of its genre and the power to grab the attention of a reader from page one. On reading Paula Hawkins new book, I do not feel the same.

‘Harmony of Ayn Rand’s philosophy in modern day Fiction’.

Not everyone is a big fan of Ayn Rand’s philosophy and many agree with her at some point or the other, after reading her famous fables like The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. Both of these books are perfect example of master storyteller plus her writing or her philosophy will have a devastating effect on the reader. Such is Southwick’s The Untethered. Based on similar principles, will keep you awake at night.

BOOK REVIEW: The Bride Who Would Not Burn by Rajesh Talwar

Rajesh Talwar is a prolific writer of modern India. This is his third published book I have read in a month. He has touched few themes that the modern Indian society either still considered them as taboo or are not taken serious enough such that the issue become might have a chaotic effect for some time over the whole society directly or indirectly. One of them is the issue of dowry and its side-effects. This disease is still in practice in this country and is one of the realities of modern India.

BOOK REVIEW: Domina by Lisa Hilton

Published in April, 2017

Published in India: May, 2017

Pages 400, Paperback

Judging this book by its cover 4/5

Goodreads | Amazon

Sequel to last year’s “first class thriller” Maestra which sold in more than 43 countries and soon to be turned into a movie is finally out. Written by Lisa Hilton, charmingly, both of her books, Maestra and Domina are in regard of a competitor to Fifty Shades of Grey, another bestseller, but after reading, I think there’s more than Fifty Shades in her books. Her plot creation is full of thrilling effects, and a piece of her imagination equals more than just Fifty Shades.

BOOK REVEW: The Last Hack by Christopher Brookmyre

Expected publication: July 4th 2017 by Atlantic Monthly Press

Pages: 432

I have read and reviewed many British crime writers because they have that thrill even without much action, and generating that feeling of thrill & noir through their words is a skill of few. Christopher Brookmyre brings that thrills back to me in his latest book, The Last Hack which is part of continuing series about a reporter Jack Parlabane.

Before getting into details, let me brief you about the story this book revolves around. Do not worry, no spoilers here. This story is told through the perspectives of Jack and Sam. Two interesting characters with a very different background and set of actions. Sam Morpeth has had to grow up way too fast, left to fend for a younger sister with learning difficulties when their mother goes to prison and watching her dreams of university evaporate.
