+20 Free Intrigue Books [PDF]

Curiosity is a natural and common feeling in all human beings. We often seek to satisfy it through different activities, one of which is reading. If you are one of those people who likes to quench your curiosity through literary narratives, you will like our collection of intrigue books in PDF format.

Intrigue is defined as “cautious handling, an action that is handled with cunning and concealment, to achieve an end”. In this definition, a relationship with suspense can be noted, due to the hidden aspect. Our books of intrigue in PDF format contain this particularity.

One of the fundamental ingredients of intrigue is not to reveal what is hidden. In this sense, if we go to the etymology of the word, we discover that “intrigue” comes from the Latin intricare, which means to entangle or to mess up, so a good book of intrigue has a strong knot, but it manages to untangle itself along the plot.

Just as in the intrigue stories, life is full of uncertainties; in fact, as predictable as we believe ours is, the truth is that we don’t know what will happen. We just know how to deal with them because they are part of our daily lives.

However, in a novel the writer can control what will happen, also how it will happen, and the reader becomes a spectator of that revelation. For the reader of books of intrigue there is no enjoyment without suspense, no magic without mystery, and therein lies the success of these literary works.

Whether you’re a fan of the genre, or you want to read your first titles, this compendium of more than 20 intrigue books in PDF format will appeal to you. It is composed of masterpieces, with outstanding authors. Take a look and download your favorites.
