A Coin of Edward VII

by Fergus Hume

Unlike some of his extraordinary mysteries this story, disappointingly mediocre and unplausibly plotted, lacks in the innate qualities found in Hume's writings. Entanglement of relationships, convolutions in the plot and competition in romance infused in the story, were ineptly sketched. Specially, poor portrayal of the character of Morley and Olga led me to the accurate guessing of the murderer right at the beginning. Although this book can cause a great deal of excitement for the occasional mystery readers, it certainly fails to fit for experienced mystery readers.

She

by H. Rider Haggard

Inexplicably imaginative, exclusively unique, absolutely esoteric and remarkably artistic a novel it is. Be it the elegance of literary language or exotic touch of creativity in the plot, undoubtedly the novel excels in both of them.
The sublimity of feminine beauty was heightened to a new position by Ayesha, although, I think she did not deserve such a hideous destiny at the end, however it is a subjective opinion, and can be put aside in the assessment of the novel. Indeed, Ayesha with her exquisite gracefulness and mystic character, I got so attached to her, that my heart was ruptured by her ghastly destiny at the end.

The Secret Passage

by Fergus Hume

Something magnetic is in Hume's writing style, as I always observed, which pinches the readers to know the solution of the mystery right from the beginning. This plot is wonderfully kept fluent, and the absence of extraneous digression makes the story appetizing for mystery hungry readers. Without hesitation I would ascertain that this book is worth accompanying you at the coming weekend or in future leisure hours.
