Back Story – I was searching for a crime novel similar to author Chris Carter and landed on this author by chance. Started with the first in the Washington Poe series with the hope that the chosen book satisfies my quench for thrillers.

Summary – Well, the story is about a perpetrator burning some people alive, and do not end there but ask for detective Poe in particular. Why and what is the reason behind his actions are explained with suspenseful narration. In fact, the justification given by the culprit made logical sense to me perhaps to do with his social background. Some portions made me revisit the moments while I was in UK since roundabouts, m5 motorways and topographic data are easily relatable. Every character has different shades to offer, but it was Tilly Bradshaw that stole my heart due to the unique nature of her personality. The rest of the characters have a routine persona hence nothing much to elaborate or talk about. Author of this book had tried to provide a story that caters to suspense lovers in general by consolidating grip execution till the end.

Remark & Rating – A complete thrilling ride throughout the story and would rate 4 out of 5 for this book not less or more. Check out for the next review of this book series.

I want to adopt more self help genre this year and found this book under iBooks free collection. And here I am trying to bring into right words that are easy to understand. This book is about the definition of peace which as per the author is found internally by every person contradictory to the belief of tracing it outside. Also, it is a clever trap to get drawn within the pool of suppressed emotion and thoughts, when letting go is where the true peace is hidden. Here is the excerpt from this book that I truly adore “Peace is not something that you achieve but rather that you become as a result of letting go of all that is not real you. You don’t need to force your mind into quietude. All you really need to do is stop giving so much attention to your thoughts and start giving more attention to what is directly in front of you at each given moment. Choose reality over the illusions in your mind”. What bowled me was to discover huge resemblance to Indian philosophy especially Advaita Vedanta. Loved it to the core for imparting the necessary life skills and the concepts were to the point. It is a tiny book full of wisdom so do not miss it.

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.

Well, it is a relief to find an assuring story about aspects of social norms in the aristocratic universe. The explanations are defined with acuity and the nuance supporting the life of an upper middle class family is captivating and mindful. I was worried to get into the usual class indifference perhaps relieved by the contradictory happenings. Moreover the relationships of Ellen and Archer is presented in less lustful details with subtle proceeding which is commendable and unforeseen. This further demonstrates how romanticism can be looked upon which unfortunately isn’t the case in today’s modern society.

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.
