Review: Shrilok Homeless The Ultimate Adventures Volume 2 by Pika Nani
The book is the second installment in the detective series, yet can be read stand-alone. Shrilok Homeless is young adult fiction. Though it can be read by all ages. The murder mysteries without any gore make it suitable for kids as young as 9-year olds.
The volume has 8 cases solved by the detective Shrilok and Rohan Doctor. The chaiwala turned detective Shrilok is smart, intuitive and persistent. The characters are well developed. Each of the cases is well crafted. Use of Hinglish language makes Shrilok more real giving his background story.
The book is fast-paced keeping the readers engaged and anxious for more. Most chapters take off vigorously while few might feel tedious. Yet the eloquent language and drama keep the readers hooked.
A good book to pick for light reading on the detective genre.
