Three Little Words is a debut novel written by the amazing author, J.M. Robson. It is a unique horror/mystery novel that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. In this novel, we meet different people with very different personalities and lives but they all have one thing in common, they all have lost a love one. Not only that, they all have lost a love one in a very peculiar manner and they have come together to know the truth behind their love ones death.
Right from the start, this book has gripped me into their world. I really wouldn’t want to put it down for it was so mysterious and at the same time, adventurous. It has this unique plot that I haven’t really encountered before. I know that it is a work of fiction but it has this eerie feel to it that even makes me question the mere existence of demons and other creatures in our world.
The writing style was not the most amazing in my opinion but it is still well written and has that hair-raising and bone chilling feel to it. As I have said on my other reviews, I am not a big fan of books written in the 3rd person point of view but this book proved me wrong. It was easy to comprehend even if there was a lot of things going on. I also want to mention that almost each chapter have a different story in it. Speaking of this stories, each chapter has different main characters which tells how they lost their love ones. It may be in the form of anger, unrequited love etc. But this stories make the whole book as one because it shows how each character is connected with the other characters. Through this, the author had gave more depth and diversity to each character.
The only problem I had was that it became a little bit slow for me in the middle. I thought that it was going in a different direction than I have expected but after that few chapters, it transformed again into this exciting and heart-clenching story up to the end of the book. I flew right into the last few chapters and didn’t even expect that I am already on the last page.
All in all, I really enjoyed reading this unique, thrilling but adventurous book. Anyone who loves mystery should read this. Even I, who have stayed away from this genre for a long time was entertained and I hope you will, too.
