My Views

First of all I admire the cover of the book which is gorgeous and gives a hint of the story inside . this is the first novel by this author but I am highly pleased by his wring . He has created a perfect atmosphere . His story stelling has taken this book to another level and seems like there is someone looking at me from behind the curtain or someone is under the bed.

But his experiences in Bhutan reminds me of few scenes harry potter . I can not but imagine Sru as Dobby. Only this particular part of this story has made me disappointed .

About the book

Alicia Berenson was a painter and a loving wife of a photographer Gabriel. She was thirty-three when she killed her husband . But this incident had made her silent. She never spoke.

Although she was silent she made a painting and it was a self portrait . She entitled it – Alecestis .

According to Greek mythology Alecestis is wife of Admetus and she has to die for her husband. But when she becomes alive again she remains silent .

This was highly connected with Alicia.

Psychotherapist Theo found her case intriguing and felt an urge to help her . He tried to understand her silence .

In order to help Alicia he step by step unrevealed the her life – the life with Gabriel and life before Gabriel .

Alicia’s childhood wasn’t suitable enough for a child. She witnessed her mother death . Her father did not love her and also her aunt was not fond of her.

On the other hand, Theo’s childhood was not better than her. He was absued by his father. His mother and him were afraid of his father. This pathetic life destroyed his mental health. It was Ruth, a psychotherapist who helped him to get out of that stage. And this incident had fueled him to become a psychotherapist.

Theo was married to Kathy, an actress. But soon their marriage seemed to be in trouble.

My thoughts

The book has taken a place in my heart . I appreciate the format of the plot : the description of Alicia’s personal diary and Theo’s narration , both of them have been blend in a brilliant way and taken this plot to another level.

The adding of personal drama has made the story more concrete and no doubt realistic.

The story is fast paced and full of suspence .

I was completely clueless about the end. I haven’t expected this twist . Ofcourse I’m amazed .

I definitely want to appreciate author’s writing style . It is hard to believe that this is his debut novel . I am definitely forward to read more books from this author.

It’s no doubt a 5/5 ⭐️ read !!

Thank you Hacchet India for arranging this awsome read-along .

The Good Thieves !!

The good thieves by Katherine Rundle :

First of of This is one of the most beautiful ARC I have received . It is my first Katherine Rundle book.

The protagonist ,Vita is a charming young girl and full of life. She is no doubt a brave girl. Her grandfather was cheated and lost his home . Our strong protagonist planned to help her grandfather with her friends.

In our high school or middle school we more or less have particular gangs towards whom we were dedicated . Vita’s gang reminded me of my high school days .

There is also a Villain, a boy. This boy does nothing but makes trouble.

The author has beautifully created the characters . Each of them is different . The building of plot is also amazing. I like the way author has shown the emotional relation between the grandfather and his granddaughter.

If you are looking for a middle grad book recommendation you should pick this one up

The book is a 4.5/5 ⭐️ read for me .
