The Pachaihara Forest is a peaceful place, where all animals (even lions) are vegetarians, and lived in harmony with each other (well, almost). Reading this introduction brought a smile, and I felt that I was in for a fun read. The Crooked Crow is the first book of the series.
I’ve read a few of Jeffrey Archer’s short-reads stories this year, which I feel look at generating interest in the bigger story collections itself.
If there is one thing I love as much as books, it is music. Listening to songs is cathartic too. Though the title played a part in my choice, it was the primary character’s obsession with one song that made me want to read the story.
When it comes to favorite detectives, I think Sherlock Holmes would rank high for most (if not all) crime fiction lovers. The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of my favorites. I have read this once before, a long time back, so thought it time for a reread.
There are quite a few short stories from Jeffrey Archer which have been released as single short books, possibly to create interest in the larger collection. This was one I recently came across, and is originally from the collection Cat O’ Nine Tales.
