Book Review: Heart Quake by K.Vijayakarthikeyan

by - 7/23/2019

Title: Heartquake
Author:  K.Vijayakarthikeyan
Genre: Fiction
Number of pages: 151

This is Karthikeyan Sir's second English title. I was already a big fan of his first book and hence was eagerly looking forward to his second title. 
This book is nothing like his first one. If you thought that he writes only simple yet engaging stories with a happy ending then you would be in shock when you read this one. Because this one is  thriller! 
Heartquake has everything that a masala pot boiler has. It has drama, romance (of course) thrill,  mystery as well as science fiction! A series of deaths in mysterious circumstances makes it impossible to keep down the book. 
What I loved in both the books is that they are set up in an IAS background,  as the writer himself is one. If his first book was about cracking the Civil services exam then this one is after recruitment of the officers. I really love this aspect as I am absolutely novice about the working of this department. 
Karthikeyan sir is a doctor too. So you can very well expect the scientific twist in his narration. This book is way ahead of its time as it deals with facts like telemedicine and remote control murder. I loved how he made everything practical and relatable. And of course the ending was happy after such a torrential story! 
I totally recommend this book if you love any of these: drama,  romance,  mystery or science fiction!  I bet you must be a fan of either or all of these!
