5 Reasons Why It Is Your Next Book

  1. This book is one of the first mystery novels ever written – first from the genre of “sensation novels”. If you love thriller novels, you should read this one for sure to know how mystery stories started in our literature.

  2. This is also a first example of detective fiction where the protagonist employs a lot of techniques to uncover the truth.

  3. This book is written in a very different style. Instead of one narrator, this book has many just like a court case has many witnesses. (Writer studied law and you can see the influence of that in his books.)

  4. Are you an English language lover? This book is totally for you. You are going to see a lot of beautiful words and sentence formation.

  5. This book will give you a glimpse of women’s lives in the 19th century in Britain. There will be many instances where you, as a woman, will find it tough to relate as we live in a totally different time now  but it’s good to read this to know how rich British women were living then; and how they suffered because of the lack of equal rights and equal laws for men and women at that time. 

Best Quote

“Any woman who is sure of her own wits, is a match, at any time, for a man who is not sure of his own temper.”


We believe in the thing that writing is a form of art that can’t be judged or rated. Every book has got something to tell and you will definitely learn something in the end even if you think the book is not good enough. Just like not all people like the same colour, similarly, not all people can like the same book. Every book has a different set of readers and we help to reach the right book to the right group by our unique reviewing style. That’s why instead of giving ratings, critical review or any other type of negative feedback; we share the things you will learn from any particular book. If it is something that resonates with what you are looking for in a book, you have found your next read!!! We also try to give the review in the simplest manner, so that we can encourage even the nonreaders to join the group.
