BOOK REVIEW :-
I like the writing style of the author. Its like i am reading a film script. There is Horror,suspense,scary, fun.
Sometimes its get dull and repetitive and the story revolves around ghost "Chudel ".
The immense doors of the Haveli opens, its the story of a haunted house in a desolate location where a group of friends are found dead. There is Thunder of the clouds.More flashes of lightening followed.The haveli belongs to the Nawab of Chandarpur.
The characterization is done well -Krish, Ayesha, Anjali, Amit .
They all are funny,try to tease others and make fun.They set cameras in haveli to capture the ghosts , to prove that there is no such thing like 'Ghosts ' .
The author has very must tried to scare the readers .I was shivering , i felt like Goosebumps, coulnt resist to read it full.
Overall its a entertaining & timepass read . Like you are watching a film .
I think its a must read. It was good attempt.I WOULD RATE THIS BOOK 4 OUT OF 5 STARS.
