Smashwords book reviews by Andreas Damm
- The Umbrella Man
on Jan. 21, 2013
Jake Needham has done it again!
He has written a book, that I read through in shortest of times and it had my attention from the first to the last page.
His main character, Samuel Tay, is a comfortable guy to follow with all his peculiarities, that make him so sympathetic.
Jake Needham is a master at describing small details, that very much describe the atmosphere of a place or a city.
I don´t know Singapore very well, but at least a little bit. I recognized a lot from his book and not only places, but also the feel of the city.
Well done, Jake Needham!
What I do regret very much, is something that only the publishers can change:
I regret, that I could only obtain this book electronically!!! However, i would prefer to have this book in my bookshelve and feel some real paper between my fingers!
If the publishers were to decide, that they are still going to publish a hard copy, then I would not hesitate to buy it!
