Book Title: Fear of God
The title of the book ‘Fear of God‘ is mystical and intriguing.
The cover image of the book, Fear of God is of a man with a hood and a rifle in hand. There is also a superimposed image of a window hit by a bullet. The whole setup gives a thrilling feeling.
As years passed and my thirst for reading aggravated, my interest in exploring various genres of books has become invariably interesting. I have always been a fan of love stories and drama.
But somehow for a few years, my interest is drawn towards mysteries and thrillers. Since that point, my search has become very exclusive. I have read some very good thrillers, murder mysteries, and psychological thrillers in 2019 and was a little skeptical as the new year approached.

After reading a few international titles like The Silent Patient and The Better Sister in the month of January, I have been craving to read an action-packed adventure thriller that also has a shade of political mystery. It is such a magical coincidence that the book ‘Fear by God‘ came to me sooner than I expected. In simple words, I can say this is one of the many best books I have received from Team Storizen to review.
With a very nicely written story and especially the climax which will stay in mind for long, this thriller from Author Vadhan is a must-read. It starts with the killing of an M.P. and becomes a sensation when the killing video is exposed to the public.

The book, Fear of God has some 350 pages is not just a story but also at certain points questions the reader’s conscience in the worldly matters that reign the human life.
The present scenario of the Indian Political system, the injustice that is going on in every department, the stiffness that a citizen faces due to social pressure, and the adverse effects of wrongdoings on common people who take drastic and dangerous steps to balance the imbalance in the society are illustrated fantastically.
I would be the very first person to feel very happy if this story is turned into a web series or a full-fledged movie. The story is such strongly written that it has all the elements to fit into the big screen.
What I like:
1. The extremely gripping storyline
2. The subplots that create a great nigger story
3. The strong characterizations of certain characters in the story are worth mentioning.
4. The targets that the killer chooses is very thrilling
5. The complete setup of Police, Judiciary, and Politics are very interestingly intertwined in the story.
6. The very concept of God being used to create a sense of fear is very well used.
What I didn’t like:
This racy thriller never gave a chance to point out any flaws.
Jagan Jigyasi is a character who is easily heroic and extremely likable. Especially this character need not woo the readers. He being the CBI officer itself creates a magic in the story and eloquently wins the hearts.

This character is calm, severe, and strong and would create more magic if this book turns into a movie. All the other characters are quite captivating and built well.
Fear of God is racy, stunning, and fast-paced. At an interval of some pages, there is something new that is in waiting for the readers. To maintain this amount of interest in a book with 300+ pages is absolutely a Herculean task. Author Vadhan has immensely captured the reader’s attention in this aspect.
Language & Grammar:
The story is written in a normal and colloquial English language with a good amount of vocabulary that makes the book to be read in a single sitting.
My Final Verdict:
Extremely captivating and a ‘must to be adopted into a movie’ story.
