Gripping And Frightening
East Of Hounslow by Khurrum Rahman is a contemporary thriller that will have you gripped and clinging to the edge of your seat.
It is a frightening novel because the reader can see how the events portrayed could actually happen. It is disturbing because it is far too easy to see how events could and do change people. It is gripping because you just have to stay clinging to every word to see how the action pans out. The ending is jaw dropping and one that I did not see coming.
The action intertwines fact and fiction which helps to enhance the realistic element for the reader. There were many instances of ‘I know/remember that’ which bred familiarity.
