Papri Rudra's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Papri Rudra

  • The Watchmaker's Daughter on July 26, 2021

    The character development and story telling is good enough to keep you engaged. The mystery at the heart of the novel is obvious, so no surprise endings there. However, this is a series, so perhaps there will be more secrets revealed later, to make it more interesting. For the time being, I needed a quick read. This one was not exactly that but I liked it enough to think about reading more from this author , maybe sometime soon.
  • The Hanged Man (Gabriel's World) on July 26, 2021

    This one is a hard boiled kind of mystery, where the rendering of the PI's life is more realistic than usually depicted in mystery novels. It has both good and not so interesting aspect to it of course. The mystery is not very mind twisting but I got a distinct impression that it would make a good movie- fast and action packed. As a book, it took a little too long to tell the tale. Of course, it does not just tell a simple tale but also paints the picture of the main protagonist's life. So, I guess, it is a personal preference, after all. I would have preferred a shorter book, while many readers might actually appreciate the side stories more than I did.
  • Six Crime Stories on July 26, 2021

    In general, I am not a very huge fan of mob stories, as that world seems alien to me, but the stories in this collection are sharp, well told and leave a strong impression. The fact that it is a bunch of short tales, was an added bonus , as I was looking for a fast read.
