The Shining | Stephen King

Recently I have been bitten by the horror-bug and as a result, have bought quite a few books of the said genre. My spooky purchases include – The Door to December, The Watchers, and Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz; The Shinning by Stephen King; Rosemary‘s Baby by Ira Levin; The Witching Hour by Anne Rice; Dark Matter by Michelle Paver and The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty. I am done with The Door to December and halfway through 'The Shining'.

I had heard a lot of good things about this book so I bought it online a couple of weeks back but I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with it. While it was an easy read, the story and the writing seemed a bit hurried and the plot-twist over-simplistic. I found the ending unconvincing as well. I know a lot of people may have liked this book so I hope nobody would be offended by my observations, but I really didn't like the book too much.

The ending will leave you reeling! Just when you think you have it all figured out, the ending would come as a punch in the gut. I would highly recommend this book to anybody looking for a good thriller.

A highly engaging story about a woman Nina Landry whose daughter goes missing just as they are about to embark on a holiday. As Nina starts a relentless search for her daughter, she discovers that there is a lot she doesn't know about the latter and that the perpetrator might be someone she knows and trust. The suspense is engrossing and the story manages to keep the readers riveted and hooked.

Set in the Tudor era London, 'Revelation' is a thriller in which a serial-killer is killing people in accordance with the prophecies contained in the book of revelation. It follows the hunchbacked lawyer Matthew Shardlake as he sets about looking for the killer. The plot is gripping and the novel is quite a page-turner. The social tensions of the post-reformation England is beautifully captured in the book.

This cult classic by Harper Lee basically deals with 'courage' as exhibited by a man and his children during difficult times and in a society marred by racial prejudices.

Grace: A Novel | Richard Paul Evans
post image
Pickpick

A touching tale about a 15 year old girl, Madeline Grace, who runs away from home to escape her abusive step-father. She meets Eric, a 14-year old boy, while looking for food in a dumpster, and the latter helps her hide in his outhouse and takes good care of her. The story is a moving tale about the bond shared between the two children and also highlights the issue of destruction of young lives due to the insensitivity and negligence of adults.
