There’s a book for everyone, or so it is said. Nowadays, there are books even for those who only have ten minutes of free time in a day. I was surprised to see that. But I was happy to see this book as one of those books.
I think every author tries to stay at the same level of consistency with their work, if not better it. So if one book falls below their usual standard, it doesn’t necessarily mean their books are not worth picking up again. Ravi Subramanian is an author I have read a few times, but his previous novel hadn’t felt that exciting. This book, “In The Name of God”, felt right in his wheelhouse. So I was excited to pick this book to read.
I love reading crime thriller novels. The genre is such that, if written well, the novel manages to grip me. I think both the cover art and the title itself both appealed to the crime thriller lover. The blurb promised action – a serial killer on the loose, and a policeman trying to catch that killer. Could the book wow me?
I am a big fan of the author Agatha Christie, and without a doubt, I consider her to be one of the best authors in the genre of crime fiction. From the many sleuths she has created, I admire Hercule Poirot, and his character. This book was a play, initially, and it was adapted into a novel by Charles Osborne. As such, this is the first Hercule Poirot novel that’s not written by Christie that I am reading.
Poetry is something I love to read, and experiment with. Many people think that there has to be a lot of depth to poetry and such, but I think poetry can be very simple too. It can relieve people of their burdens, and it can bring joy as well.
