Started Writing My First Book


Friends, I’m happy to share to the world that I’ve started to write my First Book. I’ve finally begun working on my dream of publishing my first book.

I know that writing a book and finally publishing it is not an easy job. But I’m more thrilled to take up that challenge of publishing my first book.

I must thank one person for instilling the confidence in me for taking this step. And I’m very thankful to my lady, my love, who looked into my eyes and said, “You must write and publish your book”.

If she hadn’t told me those words, I would have remained inside the shell thinking that I will publish my book one day. But when? I didn’t know!

Now, I’m sure that day is not far. So busy and difficult days ahead. I’m gonna make it a reality.

I’m gonna work hard for that with utmost sincerity and dedication.

When you hold the masterpiece of Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None, you feel the thrill and suspense at its peak. ‘And Then There Were None‘ is  unarguably the world’s best-selling mystery novel with 100 million sales recorded so far.

Christie has pulled this off in style, where the identity of the murderer is the toughest foil to crack. Clean narration and writing brings the story come alive in the most unexpected way.

If you haven’t yet read ‘And Then There Were None‘, grab the book from the stores immediately.

Agatha Christie rolls the dice in her own trademark style of suspense and twists. A compelling read!

Agatha Christie’s Peril at End House – Predictable


Peril at End House

Taking a look at Agatha Christie‘s work – Peril at End House, published in 1932, this time. The story did not make an impression that it was supposed to do.

Christie employs the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot as the central character for the story. Accompanying Poirot, Arthur Hastings returns to the picture playing his role well.

Mademoiselle ‘Nick’ is in danger, as she had survived three narrow escapes from death. Poirot takes up his detective role into the case with the use of his usual ‘little grey cells’.  How the story unfolds from there is up to the reader to take care of. Interestingly, Poirot fumbles but makes up in the end with clear head.

Narration by the author has its great flow till the end. But Christie fails to match the suspense and unpredictability seen in her other works. The reader is able to judge the accused even before the first-half of the story.

Not the best from the stable of Agatha Christie but deserves a mention for its clean narration.

Peril at End House –  a predictable peril in the end!
