Society has its own ideas of what each person’s life should be like. If the life doesn’t conform to those notions, then it makes that life seem more difficult than it may be. This was perhaps more true a few decades ago, but I don’t think it has become irrelevant yet even in the current day.
Life is all about choices, they say. This novel is about them too. I found this novel at a literature festival, and had I not attended that day, I may have missed it. The title, simple as it is, was quite appealing. And the cover art wasn’t that bad either.
I love reading thrillers, the pace is something that I love, to know what happens next. Psychological thrillers are a bit different, I think, because some also look at why what has just happened has happened. I remember hearing about Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, and this novel seemed a bit similar from the blurb.
When I’ve read and enjoyed an author’s work, I don’t usually hesitate to go for their new books. Anthony Horowitz has written two Sherlock Holmes based novels that I’ve loved and rank among my favorite reads. I read this title and the blurb, and I knew this would be one that I’d find interesting. I got this as a gift for my birthday too.
I was in the midst of a crime-ficion reading spree, but wanted to break the monotony. I thought a short children’s fiction would be just the change I needed. I’ve heard of Dr. Seuss’ books, but never read them before.
I love finding books to read. There are certain times when the book finds me. When I read a category for the Popsugar Reading Challenge 2018, this book somehow popped into my mind. I’m not sure it would have otherwise.
