The first thing that came into my mind when I began reading the book was - Gone Girl. The narration is very similar, but there are more characters. I have rated it as 3 stars because I could not guess where this story was heading. If I get to read more chapters in future, I will delete this review and write a fresh one. Best of luck to the authors.

There is no personal touch or emotion in the initial pages even though I felt there was a lot of action and a lot of people dying. I would suggest you create a few characters, show some fears and conflicts and then kill them off. It connects better with the readers. Best of luck!

I agree with your suggestion. This book was meant to be a novella and hence character development wasn't given much importance. The plan was to maintain a fast pace in all the 70 pages.

No doubt the author is well conversant with the language and has a talent for writing. However, in this book it appears he has gone overboard in describing things the literary way. If it is meant to be a thriller, there is no place for descriptions which slow the story down and take the thrill away from the reader. The chapters need to be trimmed down to improve the story.

Dear Mr.Zahir
Thank you for your feedback and review. Will definitely keep that into consideration. Would have been wonderful if you could take the time out to read the sample chapters too, Since you have already read 7 books and rated 8, would be a fine gesture from your end. Have a great day. Thanks again, will keep your notes for sure in mind and improvise.

Reading the short stories, I felt that the author has a great potential for becoming a novelist instead of a short story writer. He has a way with words which would certainly make for a great read in long stories. These short stories are just a glimpse of the talent of this writer. Please write a novel. It would definitely be worth 5 stars.

Thanks Zahir. In fact I have finished writing my novel and working on some re-writes. Hope to put it up soon. Thanks again for the encouraging words.

Simply mindblowing stuff. The author has created multiple gripping storylines running in parallel - all building up a mouth watering plot. Why is this book not out in the stands yet?
