The Killer Elephant’s Journal


There is a new book suggestion which I happened to stumble upon accidentally. It is a debut novel. And I was surprised to read the mystery and the suspense the story had.

An interesting read…

Here is the URL to the book.

Death on the Nile – Agatha Christie – Falls Short

After reading the best books by Agatha Christie – And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and The A.B.C. Murders, I expected a spine-chilling plot, twists and unexpected climax in ‘Death on the Nile’. But I was disappointed.

This is not a spoiler alert.

Death on the Nile lacks the aura of Christie’s novels. The plot is predictable and the characters are uninteresting. Two or three secondary  female characters appear more or less similar to each other. Hercule Poirot is confused during the quest of the murderer.

Not the best book of Christie, yet a readable one.

And Then There Were None – Spot On

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!

Ernest Hemingway Wrote So…


    "A man can be destroyed but not defeated." ― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.

After reading Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man and the Sea‘, one sentence has got my attention.

“A man can be destroyed but not defeated. ” ― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.

A man can be easily destroyed but cannot be defeated completely. It calls for the high spirits of a man.

There would be a lot of things that go deep inside a man’s heart. It hurts him, pulls him down, tests his creditability, challenges him and even makes him appear like a fool. But a man with a strong will power and patience will not be defeated. It is not about the masculinity or testosterone levels. It is all about how a man holds his composure during the hardships and difficult times.

The struggle is so worth fighting for.      

Again, a man can be destroyed but he cannot be defeated completely.
