My Top 2017 Thrillers

Since I’m obsessed and I have read quite a number of Thrillers this year, I have been asked a lot about my favorites.

It’s not an easy question to answer but I think I can mention the ones that had really left a big impact on me, were so memorable, and that I highly recommend.

Book Review : The Devotion of Suspect X

Book Title : The Devotion of Suspect X
Book Author : Keigo Higashino, Alexander O. Smith (Translator)
My Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Publication Date : February 1st 2011


I’m a very big fan of fast paced book, thrillers and plots with twists. So it’s no wonder I was hooked up real fast with The Devotion of Suspect X.

It was super easy to get into the story, not the names though! (I literally had to note down who is who and what they are doing at the beginning of the book.) Having got through that, it was an extremely enjoyable read and a hard to put down book.

We get introduced to Yasuko, her daughter, her simple quiet life and a neighbor whom she had only shared a few moments with. When her ex-husband appears at her door without warning one day, all peace she has known is gone.

Enter the Tokyo police and detectives trying to make sense, put together the events of that particular day and solve one of the biggest crimes out there.

This was a standalone read. You do not need to read the past ones as they are not part of a series. There is also no reference or mention to the previous books.

Having praised the book and giving it a four stars, I have to mention my “but” about it. I’ve never been a fan of translated books, and though this book is brilliantly genius, it did feel a bit dry sometimes and I’m blaming it on translation.

Overall, I would totally recommend this book, have you pick it up right now and go on endless discussions about it.
