Book Review #168: The Speaking Stone by Ratnadip Acharya

Author: Ratnadip Acharya

Genre: Crime, thriller, mystery

Ratings: ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Being an engineer myself, I have always been fascinated with solving logical puzzles. And when I saw the book title, I knew there will be something mysterious in the tale which one needs to unravel.

'The Speaking Stone' is a story that talks about unearthing of ancient tale about a stone which the protagonist bought from a hawker in 2016. The story runs in parallel of two distinguishing times. One of 1900s and one of 2016.

The story is crafted really well though the pace should have been more. The most intriguing thing about the book is it logically follows all the clues and answers the readers about whatever doubt that might have crept in inadvertently.

Though the chapters could have been organised a little better as it sometimes become a bit cumbersome and confusing to move back and forth between two time periods. Though full marks to the author for his imagination and creativity.
