- The Legend of Sasquatch
on April 29, 2010
Someone recently turned me onto this site, and I decided to check it out. The idea of "independent authors" didn't exactly turn me on, but the prices are cheap, so I figured I didn't have much to lose if I tried a couple. I stumbled onto "The Legend of Sasquatch" by William T. Prince because I was looking for a story set in Dallas, my childhood home. The synopsis sounded interesting, and I really liked the cover. It didn't look cheesy like so many of the others, and I liked the whole light/dark, good/bad motif. At a price of $2.99, I thought I'd give it a shot.
Suffice it to say that I wasn't disappointed. It was definitely the best book I ever read for the price. A lot of bang for the buck here. This is one of the more interesting character novels I've ever read, and the hero is very interesting. I got a very clear picture of what he looked like and more importantly what kind of person he was, and I like him a lot. The other characters are interesting too, and the action-packed plot really kept me turning the pages. Figuratively speaking of course, since this was an Ebook. I was a little shocked by the ending, and maybe a little disappointed too. But overall, I enjoyed the book immensely and I suspect that the author is planning a sequel. I hope so anyway. I'm not ready to let go of these characters.
In short, I loved this book and I highly recommend it to any adult reader who enjoys a good character study and unapologetic realism. A very, very good read that would also make a wonderful movie. If Hollywood hasn't already called the author, they will.
