a stranger in the mirror.



I would say this is one of the worst novels I happened to read.

Its starts with something interesting - story of a boy named Toby Temple. Side-by-side, he also narrates about a wicked mother and her daughter who, we supposedly know, is the female-lead in the story. Author just keeps the story of this girl in suspense (like bits n' pieces here and there) for quite a while and that is what, I felt, which kept me going.

However, the sad part is, the story is so predictable. The Master of Unexpected turned out to be something which was so-very-expected. I hoped for something would eventually turn out which would make my predictions wrong. But noting of that sort happened.

Verdict - the book is damn boring!
