House of Eyes – Books are still kids’ best friend!

When my mum showed me the list of books for the review, I chose Connie Carew #1: House of Eyes as the first book I would like to review because I like to read mystery novels.

When it arrived, I was very happy. I wanted to read it start to finish because it was gripping from the first page itself. Thankfully, it was Saturday and my parents allowed me to read it in one go.


So here is my review:

It is a very well written book. I found it a bit confusing at first but after around 100 pages the story becomes gripping. You start understanding the plot and it is amazing to see how a 12-year old solves the mystery. I mean the girl is around my age only. I am very impressed with Connie. The story is set in London – my favorite place that I want to visit. How Connie finds out the real mystery surrounding her cousin Ida is so fun to read.

This book is kind of complex because it is very thrilling and mentally stimulating. There are fixed number of characters so you can follow their actions nicely. It is interesting, fun to read. It’s a mystery so initially I found it a bit scary – not very scary and at the same time very exciting.

The language of the book is as if someone is telling you the story in front of you. Language is easy to understand and comprehend. Font size is relatively big and doesn’t strain the eyes – especially since I have specs.

I can’t really wait to read the sequel.

    Hi Eesha, nice to see you writing reviews of your favourite books! Hope this will encourage you to write more and one day, maybe create your own stories! Next time, try movie reviews if you got the chance!

    P.S. I do loads of movie reviews 😛

    Hi Eesha, good to read your review in your mom’s blog!
    I too love thrillers. Read so many stories like these when I was your age! Glad you liked it! 🙂

    A gripping mystery sounds intriguing. even though I am 25, sometimes I love to pick out the teen and pre teen books for a light reading. I remember in my days the Hardy Boys were quite famous 🙂

    Reading books is a great way to enhance a child`s comprehension. I started voluntarily reading and searching for more books around her age. The book seems like a thrilling read.

    It looks like an easy read. I think I can also finish it in one seating or just before going to sleep. 🙂 Nice share!

    Nice write up. You have said it all but let me just say something about the review. You said after 100 pages that is when the page will start to be interesting.

    Interesting read. Connie Carew sounds like Nancy Drew. Maybe, the author was a fan of Nancy Drew.

    I like the book art and the art of the opening page.

    Nice post.
