“Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying.” - Kirkus Review
Interlaced in a blatantly disturbing exploration of psychological darkness, American author Gillian Flynn’s debut novel is one to creep into your nightmares. After years of self-harm and troubled childhood, young reporter Camille Parker moves out from psych hospital to cover the killings of young girls in her hometown. Brutally murdered, the victims were strangled and had all their teeth removed. And returning to her hometown, Wind Gap, means reuniting with her estranged and equally neurotic mother, as well as an unknown thirteen-year-old half-sister. Threaded with seemingly twisted and damaged characters, each page will move you to the edge and gnaw at your curiosity. As the protagonist attempts to unravel the grisly deaths, discoveries about the town’s dark and horrendous secrets would later arise from the surface. Enthralled with iffy twists and turns, fast-paced storytelling, and a touch of gruesome yet human madness on how people tend to digest pain differently, Sharp Objects is a pitch-black ride that will linger on your memory.

The Name of the Rose
“Like the labyrinthine library at its heart, this brilliant novel has many cunning passages and secret chambers . . . Fascinating . . . ingenious . . . dazzling.” – Newsweek
Few books depict life in profundity, and this, definitely is one of them. Umberto Eco’s masterpiece is a bewildering voyage into the High Middle Ages; a historical, mystery fiction with an apt storytelling encompassing around faith, reason, art, religion, sexuality and politics. An outstanding novel not to be taken lightly— the name of the rose holds a passage into another time. With combined semiotics, literary theory, medieval studies and biblical analysis, the plot navigates with Brother William of Baskerville, who is set out to investigate a suspected heresy among Franciscans in the abbey and the unusual deaths of seven people. In his quest, the protagonist carries around him his superior logic, innovation and curiosity to unknot the mysteries of the abbey. Comparable as the medieval Sherlock Holmes, the novel naturally engrosses readers with its exquisite characterizations, multifaceted discussions, and a bewildering murder mystery like no other.
