Origin is the latest book written by the famous novelist Dan Brown.

Invisible by James Patterson and David Ellis is a novel with the same style of the Tv series called Criminal Minds. That is a mystery thriller that I read with no real interest at first.

Let’s start from the plot. Invisible is set in the US, where an arsonist s...

This quote was said by Albert Einstein many years ago, but matches perfectly with the sharp meaning of this novel titled The Underground Railroad. The author is Colson Whitehead, namely the winner of Pulitzer prize and National Book Award 2017. His novel has been the only book to win these prizes during the past twenty years. If you are a new autho...

Hence, about this, there are two options: or the author has a great writing talent or the editor of the traditional publisher did a great editing work. How...
