A few critics are claiming the new addition in Stieg Larsson’s famous Millennium Trilogy,The Girl in the Spider’s Web as controversial. Written by David Lagercrantz who previously had two titles named under him: a non-fiction and a fiction, both translated in English language. Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy is a huge success worldwide and adaptions are already out there. The previous three novels are gripping, rich in thrill, and intelligent. One who has read any of the three, knows very well what I am trying to express here. And he must be excited about this new addition.
There were no pre-review copies or excerpts of this novel, The Girl in the Spider’s Web. It was released earlier this month. Like countless readers, I have been waiting to get my hands on it, find out myself the standard set by Larsson, will it be matched? Of course not! Stieg Larsson’s writing is exceptional. The way he conveyed his ideas in those three books, only he could do it. Though, as a writer of this book, David Lagercrantz does a good job in maintaining those characters, putting some more insight which continues to make the Millennium trilogy interesting.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web looks deeper in the world of hackers as it is all about them. It share a similar starting point as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Mikael Blomqvist’s is in search of a story, a cover story, and the situation is an intense one. From the previous three books, we learned that the pierced Lisbeth Salander was a formidable hacker, and in a world of warring hackers, she is the unquestioned genius. (more…)

It is always good to meet new authors. And especially the one whose work you admire. I am not a big fan of Paranormal fiction but when I read Madhuri Blaylock’s THE GIRL which is the first title under The Sanctum Trilogy, I realized I can cop up with the genre itself. Being least favorite doesn’t mean I should not read. After all, diversity is always necessary in a reader’s life.
I conducted this review in awe of learning something both as a reader and a writer from the author and I can say, I did, quite pleasantly.
Madhuri Blaylock writes paranormal fiction and is enchanted by tattoos, four-inch heels, ice cream, Matt Damon, scotch, and a few more. She is currently working on the third and the last book in the trilogy of The Sanctum “The Prophecy” which is the finale. The trilogy previously restrain the titles: The Girl and The Boy.(more…)
A book is a collection of words, those words can be numerous and further expressing numerous ideas. But the idea behind Kevin Thomas’ HORN! THE COLLECTED REVIEWS is exceptional and matchless. As suggested by the title, this book is a collectible of book reviews by captivating illustrations and no more than a handful of words.
Fiction and non-fiction, cutting-edge and popular books; the one quality these works have in common is that they have attracted Thomas’ remarkably perceptive gaze and pen. This is a paean to reading by a thoroughly unjaded, committed amateur of the art, seriously appreciative of each book’s unique attributes. The works he selects are ones he admires: and he excels at conveying the excitement and respect they inspire in him. What a list he’s compiled: Jonathan Lethem, Jim Shepard, Rachel Kushner, Renata Adler, Georges Perec, David Graeber, Julian Assange, George Saunders, Hilton Als, Oliver Sacks, Cheryl Strayed, Dennis Cooper, Joseph Gordon- Levitt and Jennifer Egan are just a few of the authors whose work is here brilliantly distilled.
