Blood in The Paradise - Book Review

I don't usually read books on my Kindle App but when I read the blurb of this book, I just had to. Amazingly penned down and beautifully portrayed with close resemblance to Gabriel Garcia's "Chronicles of a Death Foretold, this thriller by Madhav Mahidhar is totally unputdownable.

It took me 15 days to finish this book just because reading on my cell phone irritates my eye. Otherwise, I would have surely have been closing the book weeks ago. The cover of the book is beautiful and thrilly with an eerie mystic aura about it. You can't help but turn over (or swipe to the next page). The title of the book is really apt since a paradise is shattered owing to some uncertain events in Madhumita's life.

The story starts unfolding from a very interesting entry in the pages of Madhumita's diary where she sounds suicidal. She is also thinking about the death of her children. What happened in her life that has made her so negative? Is she planning suicide or a murder? Does her husband Vikas have a role to play in all this? Read the book on Kindle  to know!

The book has the perfect elements of mystery and the old age symbol that adds beauty to any novel, a Diary. There are no major mistakes but for the fact that the language is very simple and may not interest the ones who look for a bit of High quality English. But for normal Indian readers who are browsing for a different genre, this is perfect.

The character sketch is totally fine and acceptable and so is the susceptibility of the characters to different situations and their mindsets. You can find such people lurking around you everyday!

I rate the book, 3.5 stars out of 5.
