Let me break it to you that I am a hardcore fan of Keigo’s books since ‘The devotion of suspect x’ and the ladder of fascination seems to never cease. The plot is a routine murder mystery filled with line of suspects that requires a deduction ability to configure but it is the elements of investigation that keep you on the edge. And there is a resemblance of the later part of the story involving the swimming pool accident to Kanea Minato’s ‘Confessions’ even though the core tale differs on this. What I missed was the physicist Yukawa’s character from the previous works of the author who had an impressive digging skill that was lacking in here. Apart from it everything else scores in my opinion and overall had a nice time with this book.

In the list of several classics reads this too joins as rightly deserved for its suspense imbibed storytelling and gothic style infrastructure. It is unheard to present the mysterious character at the start and building the story thereafter shows the development of thrilling effects while focus is retained on the tensions around them. It must be daunting to articulate such expectations which are unique in those times and wonder how this was drafted to accommodate the ideas of the author. If this wasn’t enough the love was briefed with at most care without any lengthy pretence dialogues. This proves how much research would have been gone to arrive on the scene and the plight of reader satisfaction. I am thankful to have read this book and gives me an opportunity to share my lingering thoughts and views with the fellow readers. I hope this was insightful and informative.

This will be the first Russian literature book I’ve read and find it lucky to have fallen in love with the narration by the author. The subject of death is a taboo and abhor for many people who rubs off its occurrence as a negative effect. And to have someone talk about it gives a sense of bravery that is appreciable. If combined with a sickness alarms the faint heart thus pushing away from a happenstance that is bleak to even consider. But with Tolstoy character Ivan, the actual moments of suffering, sadness and rejection are conveyed with at most precision. It screams of agony, oppression and despair that anybody could relate to however, I find that Ivan’s acceptance of death to be less potent and feel sorry for the wife character. Never is it easy to be with a sick person when the demands are persistently and emotionally drained. While it is hard to witness such things, remaining characters play their part as promised. Hence, a tale that will make you think, feel and act vividly.

I have read a handful of poems that are imaginative, credible or impressive which apparently is taking a back seat now. This book scores a ton on this end while allowing the readers interpretation to run its vivid course. Some categories carry a deep sense of forbearance, intimacy and personal stance that are gaslighted by this author or maybe it’s just my opinion. Otherwise was insightful to go through the whole sections of poetry which are a treat to the fanatics. Hope my review was helpful to persuade enough to try this out. If so drop your view for a healthy discussion.

Who says graphical novels are cherished by the children and the young people alone? Let me break it to you that I am a married women and equally admire the illustration based books. Even though it gives me the guilt of not reading such books in the past, but still fulfills my desire to explore them as much I want. However, it baffles me to find that various science fiction stories have not been inspected yet which makes me feel saddened. The concept of travelling to mars and the astronaut’s difficulties are explained with complimenting sketches. So everything is envisioned fine except the talks between astronauts which were chaotic in some places. If you ignore them will be a complete fun package here.

It is always fun to read a mystery book with elements of interesting characters, twisted behaviors and unpredictable endings such a storytelling keeps me on the edge. This puzzling feeling is something I look into whenever I lay my hands on thriller novels. However slim the case may be apparently vary in execution styles. After all benefit of doubt is where the entire playwright weighs upon. Here comes this story which ticks all the above points and feeds the curious reader’s mind. What more to ask? To be honest, Agatha is well versed in articulating characters that are unique, mysterious and irresistible to fall in love. This is how I could interpret her creativity and hope to have made a reasonable impact to lure you sneak into her works. If you deemed so, than share your thoughts on this book.

I wonder the purpose of graphical books and its relevance in the choice of medium for the readers. In fact many are initiated to depict illustrations to pictorial admirers, but find it on limited genres why is it the case so? Well this tale is about the intimate relationship between the awakened mummy and the professor’s daughter if this is intriguing then read it to know further. Apart from the mystery around the mummy nothing else is holding the interest also dulls the story progression. Certain portions where the mummy’s father presence evokes laughter than genuine emotions which otherwise prove juvenile. In short, efforts of the author must be commendable to create a graphical book and wish better luck with the future endeavors.

As a mystery fanatic, this book is a treat to me with a precision suspense teller by none other than Agatha. When a series of murder attempts are executed with the presence of famous detective Poirot in the premise what more can go wrong when the opportunity is directly fallen onto his lap for a start. Nothing seems to be of less importance everything counts, including the unknown, unheard character ‘k’ of those who have read the book can understand what I mean by it. For the rest grab it to discover and do not forget to share your views. Well, I am still lingering over Mr Poirot attention to details, I feel him and Sherlock Holmes would have been an interesting detective pair what do you all think?

I do not wish to repeat the story line, which many would have shared its details and views, but to me the exercises at the end of the each section keeps it attentive and entertained. Activity driven texts gives a sense of measuring the comprehension skills which keeps the assimilation in check. When you get the answers right will indeed raise the confidence, but all pays well with the appropriate layouts, language and questionnaires combined together can bring the effectiveness in learning. I find this book meets all the above requirements and delivers its best. Not to forget the thriller elements it offers so stay put and happy reading.

This book is not a memoir of Machiavelli life, but covers his political views, liberal beliefs and his reasons to why Italy failed to progress in terms of personal greed. His comparison with Roman empire draws a conclusion on how religious institutions have played to promote their civic culture and suggests to implement the same strategy on Italian socialism. Why do I find Machiavelli’s fancies the constitution of Rome instead, whereas minimal with the barbarians in Italy? Historical facts are argued enough, apparently one sided so it is hard to conclude but good to hear their thoughts.
