Goosebumps review: A must read for thriller lovers. A western standard Indian thriller. Goosebumps guaranteed.

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

This is Mr. Aroon Raman’s third thriller and one of his best as well. The plot is unusual but an apt one for the genre. The narration was gripping from the word go. The author has not taken much time to set the characters and that is an advantage for this thriller. The characterization was fine for a thriller.

One can compare the novel to western thrillers which rules the Indian market. The author has set the story with western readers in mind (It seems). There was no prolonging chapters or pages. The duo of Chandrasekar and Meenakshi has been portrayed as James bonds of India. A fantastic thriller with good plot and characters.

There are few glitches like the initial set up for the story was too short, may be that might be ok for a thriller. There is not much suspense, one can easily guess who the antagonist is. But the phase of the story has swallowed everything and keeps the readers at bay.
