May 17, Neha rated it liked it Shelves: I liked this book quite a bit – a fair bit more than the last murder mystery I read, DB Shan’s “Hell’s Horizon” which I also gave 4 stars. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. There is a bureaucrat, an innocent tribal youth, a dumb Viksa, an actress, a thief and finally finally a politician Vicky’s father himself. The police search each and every guest. So, sooner we can expect a movie out of this Novel also.

But in his usual style the outcome also changes after the flashback. I could also have done without the chapter which consisted almost entirely of a phone conversation. This book had some humor, sus;ects was a nice change, and I really liked the way it was set up–Murder, suspects, motives, resolution.

Swarup juga memotret banyak wilayah kumuh India melalui perjalanan keliling India oleh Eketi, juga swxrup Shabnam aktris India papan atas nomor tiga setelah Aishwara Rai dalam menjalani hari-harinya.

The stories are as diverse as following a tribal man on a spirit quest to a Bollywood sex symbol to a backwoods American seeking his mail order bride, while the styles range from diary searup to omniscient third-person to written almost entirely in dialogue.

While I enjoy foreign settings, and am fond of India especially, Swarup’s one American character was so ridiculously stereotyped and stupid, and annoying, peppering his every sentence with aphorisms and simlies until I ground my teeth in irritation that it made me doubt his other characters were any more realistically drawn.


Tersangka ketiga adalah Eketi, seorang pemuda dari vika pedalaman di pulau Andaman.

Refers to a two-week period as a “fortnight”. It was fun and engaging, sometimes d 3. While I enjoyed Six Suspects especially the characters of Eketi and Munnathe American character, Larry Page, did not ring true at all, primarily because of his speech. Books – Category Description.

So, these days you’re engrossed in reading books. The name of this novel The dumb American who is a fork lift driver reaches India to marry an Indian woman who send her ssuspects to him through an agency.

And yeah, I want to play the role of Killer – by the time you complete reading it you will know why! It is a murder whodunit that satisfies the mind and the heart. The police cordon off the venue. Viias he is liberated from his trauma? You have been loggedin 66 facebook. I really did not like his character, and his knack for idioms and similies got to be a bit infuriating after a while.

Feb 23, Thousands of users are looking for advice right now. The tension that normally should keep mounting in a murder mystery with every turning page is rather missing. Larry menolak untuk percaya kalau dia ditipu dan yakin kalau Sapna Singh adalah Shabnam Saxena. Eketi dan Ashok harus melakukan perjalanan ke seantero India untuk mengejar batu tersebut.

He got brutally attacked by Vicky’s henchman.

Comment on this review. Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. Six Suspects – Vikas Swarup. Also cumbersome are Swarup’s hackneyed descriptions and daft aphorisms, though he does have a redeeming eye for the disparities ssarup define Indian society.

~Who is the murderer?~ – SIX SUSPECTS – VIKAS SWARUP Consumer Review –

After all of this, the author takes us through the night itself and just as I thought that the climax itself was an anti, it turned out to be the setup for a riveting series of events that provides a deserving end to a fantastically written work of fiction. Feb 26, All else aside from the American character is great. Begitu juga dengan kehidupan orang kaya seperti artis Bollywood dalam tokoh Shabnam Saxena. His writing style is simple and to-the-point, yet the characters occasionally stay on your mind long after they’ve been written out of the story.

Swarup inserts any connection between two people, no matter how contrived or far-fetched, which will set up the plot. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. And despite trying to shove in everything Indian under the sun, Syspects makes one notable omission.

At one point, the home minister moves to ban the film of The Da Vinci Code, in order to stir communal sentiment: I still think Page’s use of British-isms was distracting, but I’m going to be a little more forgiving of the American fikas.

I’m not good in doing reviews and I think with plus people discussing about this book susspects enough to give any new guy what to expect. Jul 29, Muhammad Hisyam rated it liked it.
