Review- 


Karma is a blend of horror, love and psychology. 


The cover of this book shows a lonely man and a lady in the background. The shades of black and blue is perfect and goes in hand with the genre horror. The book is small in size having 85 pages. The book is a quick read and you will finish reading it in half and hour. 


Moving on to the story, I didnot find it spine chilling one. I like to read horror which gives the reader goosebumps and Karma isn't that kind. I was reminded of the Indian cinema, 1920- Evil Returns at some instances. I found the surprise element missing in this story. A few incidents from this story made me laugh rather than making me scared. The story starts off well but as you read further, it loses its charm. It turns monotonous and predictable. 
The simple language and lucid narration makes this book an easy read. The story is presented well with good twists and turns. The story is plotted well. 

I rate: 
Cover: 3.5/5 
Characters: 3/5 
Story: 2/5 

Karma gets an overall rating of 2.5/5 stars from me.

You can buy this book on Amazon.
