Horror, Thriller

One of Hitchcock’s great masterpieces, which surely keep you on the edge of your seat while watching, is definitely psycho, a novel and memorable movie that you cannot forget easily.
This movie has been universally lauded by many movie watchers and detractors, like many of Hitchcock’s other movies.

The movie is intent upon stealing forty thousand by Marion crane, a young secretary who is in real need of money to save her romantic life with Sam Loomis. In the way running away from the city that she has been living and working for long, she decided to stay the night in a motel and totally unaware that her plan will be spoilt soon and she won’t see the tomorrow’s sunrise. Motel owner, Norman Bates, whose strange hobbies are taxidermy and talking about his mother, is actually the leading role and also his portrayal of a mama’s boy is really terrific and admirable.
Astonishingly the movie doesn’t lose its effect even knowing about the plot and what’s going to happen and its cliffhanger ending can surprise anyone.
It’s a gripping movie which plays on your sympathy and incredibly makes you feel sorry for both the murderer and the victim who is guilty of stealing money it also keeps you in suspense and it’s very intriguing.

It’s a book with 101 moving short stories that commemorate the pleasure of motherhood and makes you laugh, chuckle and cry. It has ten chapters with appropriate titles like miracles, a mother guiding hand, grandma’s love and etc.
Skilled speakers spoke to thousand of women the world over about their success , personal growth and self development to publish the book.
These short stories are gathered to mark the great moments of motherhood and will go down well with mothers of all ages.
The book has been lauded by many readers and it’s full of touching, compelling and page turner short stories that you can finish each in a short time and it’s a good idea to have the book in your bag always, although when you start, one is never enough and you will at least read two or three stories.
Being based on true stories makes some of the stories very evocative that will definitely call up some memories and also reading about other people’s adventures and mishaps during their parenthood makes the readers realize that many wonderful things had also happened to them, as the stories are not very heavy going the reader will go into them very easily.
You will probably find most stories gripping and dazzling and appreciate your own mother more and more after reading this book.
I recommend you read it and also give it to your mother to read, and then she might feel much better about her own kids.
