                                   THE POET
                                                                                           -MICHEAL CONNELLY

                Over the past few years  , I have developed a taste for crime. Nothing serious of-course  , just the occasional novel  , which helps me fill my thirst for  a good crime without getting blood on my hands. What I like most about a crime story is that moment where the fog rises and everything is explained- the motive and the modus operandi.  It’s a puzzle whose pieces fall into place slowly as you turn each page. And a great crime story is one that makes this moment really special.
            The Poet was one such book , rubbing its shoulders with the likes of classics like ‘The Silence Of The Lambs ‘and ‘The Bone Collector’ – BOTH OF WHICH I HAVEN'T HAD THE FORTUNE OF READING AND HAD TO CONTENT MYSELF WITH THE HOLLYWOOD VERSION.
            I  am not giving away any part of the storyline , because that would ruin the whole joy of reading . It is so entertaining that it had me completely engrossed  at the most unlikeliest of hours.  You can get your hands on a copy of this book from the Palakkad district library, but I would recommend it for the above 15 year olds, considering the repulsive and obscene nature  of the crime scenes.
