The love for reading has been there since childhood. From fairy tales to crime fiction, my school days got me into reading more often than not. Comics were one genre I consumed happily back then. I remember reading the witty tales of Akbar & Birbal as a series of comics. It was a delightful travel back in time as I re-read some of the tales that I loved back then in this book by Monisha Mukundan.
There are few books I love to re-read when I feel l’m in a reader’s block, and new books don’t seem interesting. One of the series that falls into this category is the Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Short. Fast-paced. High impact entertainment. The description of the book, or the BookShots series of James Patterson quite appealed to me. A short thriller is always interesting if done well.
An office brings people of similar background together, yet each person is different in their own way. Casual acquaintances at office, that’s manageable, but can a group work when each of their personal lives is affected by the other?
I love to read thriller novels. If done well, they keep me at the edge of my seat, waiting to know what happens next. That’s why I choose to read this genre more often than not. Judging the book by the title, I chose this novel because I expected a relentless pace of narration. The plot felt like it could do the title and my expectations justice.
