Will I get a chance to meet up this favorite author in the near future? It is a Herculean task to furnish thriller plots with rationale details which the author Keigo Higashino has mastered by every book of his release. One may find the plots since his ‘The devotion of suspect x’ to be cordial with culture and modern aspects of life and I truly believe that this is his style at its best. Well, coming to this story which is about making the perpetrator to admit his scandalous act that carries two different homicide case and finding the killer who has taken his life. Although sounds like an open shut case but the execution process is what steals the show. What happens when you bring the physicist Yukawa’s help to solve the mystery must be read to get the stimulating effects. I am counting on his next offer the soonest the merrier.

Mythology based stories are the new trends for quite a while now. This book is the second installment from the “The Pataala Prophecy” series by the author. Why do I get the feel that this book is more about the other protagonist Maya than Arjun? Because her character alone is spoken at length and makes it quite rambunctious! The rest of the characters like Raman Kapoor, Vishwaraj and Shukra leaves theirs imprint and room for curiosities. The visual representation of tapovan was similar to Gandalf accompaniment with Frodo in “Lord of the rings”. This novel is surpassed with a hope that at least the third installment surprises me with thorough characterization coverage.

I am reading this author’s book from the “Mahabharata series” apparently this one is no different. The author knows how to keep the narrative engaging by adapting the characters from the Hindu mythology.

There is a huge resemblance between this story and Harry Potter series. For instance, Gurukul is a replica of Hogwarts school and the groups in it such as sadhs, nagas, sangha and asuras are like mud blood, half blood, order of the phoenix and death eaters! Although the story enacted differently, most of it settles in the similar trends. Amusingly, I find it entertaining for adapting the Indian historical facts. As a first installment this book invokes the interest and provokes for the second offerings!

This is a captivating tale of Jimmy Tock whose lineage falls onto a fine aerialist and clowns with a mystery attached to his parentage. What happens when things go as per his grandfather predictions is the crux of the story explained in a gripping fashion. The conversations between Jimmy and his family is enthusiastic and spreads positivism. I have read a couple of books by the author, but this book stole my heart for its stimulating verbose and content that is indulgent to the courageous efforts in life.

I am a big fan of Perumal Murugan books since the time of ‘Poonachi’ and this is no different from his routine outpourings. If you like some short stories than you are good with this one and be ready for the 10 tiny tales that the author had embarked. Each story is filled with country side verbiage with ample of culture and rich heritage. Wonder if the author has liberal core beliefs or disregard of the aristocratic rules. Whatever may be the reason the author has a way to offer his insights in a layman manner which is highly appreciable. The four strokes of luck is not by a hidden fortune rather backs it up by sincere efforts. Simply go for it.

This book isn’t for the trans-phobia and foolish to be naive about it! I just didn’t know what to expect, but curiousness made me to sneak this 6th Cormoran Strike fare. Well, I don’t want to opine the story synopsis that many have already detailed. But I find Rowling scores better in this screenplay and the way characters are laid down will keep the mind engaging and curtailed. Guessing the culprit poses a big challenge as most of them had something to hold onto and further pulls the draconian focus towards the story line. Totally immersive and pulsating in my opinion.

I chose this book randomly without knowing that this is part of the series. So may be this could be the reason for giving three star rating!? This story is about hunting the perpetrator who is responsible for the killings of wealthy elders who resides on the assisting living home. He has a partner in crime who works as his sex mate and the nurse in the facility. How nameless nabs them is the nutshell of the story. I do normally like the Dean Koontz style but this did not stir any impressions and wonder if I had read the prior parts then how could’ve made a difference? So, the work is not that bad but could’ve been more gripping is my opinion.

I find Chetan Bhagat has toned his writings from romantic novels to mystery genre which hints that he is widening his skill set or maybe its just my view. Coming to this story, it is a routine fare of finding a missing girl and how the detective traces forms the crux of this case. Well, the pace was good, but the relationship between the detective and the victim’s mother was dramatic and full of Chetan’s romantic strokes. The ending wasn’t pleasing enough for the perpetrator character and lacks the desirable punch and validity to justice and felt flattened! Otherwise, the book is a nice time pass for the hobbyists.
