Review Copy: Team Kaalage
First of all , I would like to thank team “Kalaage” for providing the copy of the book “The Overview Motel” authored by Rohaan Ohlayan. When I got the first two chapters to review, one thing which clicked my mind was the title of the book that sounded damn promising, yet creating a thrilling vibes. The cover of the book too looked fascinating in comparison of a psychological thriller. In the very first chapter, we found that the main two protagonists were Jack & Peter who were told to be friends in the story, got stuck in a thunder & downpour night on their way to Vodfort City from Straton. They took shelter on a motel named “The Overview Motel” parking their ford car after a lot of struggle including changing the wheels & etc. In this story whereas we have seen Jack getting overwhelmed with the decor of the motel & Peter getting a little bit disturbed by his friend’s inattentiveness. Throughout the long first chapter, we have not witnessed any scene giving plots of something strange happening in their surroundings of motel or awkwardness making them uncomfortable, still there was a small hint for the storyline ended in a point where it was going to reveal some awkward events later in the progress of the story.
Well, I loved reading the description of a heavy rainfall & the struggle of changing a punctured wheel in an empty dark highway. Though it will be tough & irrational to judge a book by reading its very first chapter, I will still say that the author had put his much effort to decorate the initial chapter at his best. This novel has much to offer us if we look it as author’s first book. I would love to read the whole book & will recommend every thriller lover to grab this copy as soon as possible.
