Recently, I went to a book warehouse sale. I was feeling the heat and the stench from the drain as I walked around, browsing through box after box of dusty books. After spending a considerable amount of time, I realised with a start that most of the spy-related novels were pretty similar.

Call me a liar, but as I went through other books, I found that the general storyline was always the same: There’s some trouble somewhere in the world, and there’s only one man or woman capable of stopping the crisis.

Add that to the heat and smell, I immediately felt like going home. But since I was there, I decided to just skim through the titles.

True enough, there were hardly any books that I was interested in, and I finally settled to buying a book for my sister who’s studying in Russia.

Could it really be that these books are the same? Because from the synopsis, they sounded the same- generally, of course. But where is the world heading to if all we have are books that have the same storyline?

Perhaps I should read those books first. After all, the phrase ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ has proven to be quite true.
