A novel that takes you along and involves you in the plot which includes agents of the CIA, and set in Beirut during the war. You travel through the life of Walter, during that time, and experience the feelings, decisions and life of this character.
Definitely worth a read.
This is an historically accurate novel which brings to the fore all of the emotions felt during and post the days of slavery. We fear, become angry, are filled with dread and terror as we read about the abuse incurred. Zachariah is a man who is forced to walk in two worlds, while remaining true to himself. Defiantly worth the read.
An excellent read, once you start you don't want to put the book down. This could be called a roller coaster ride as it has so many twists and turns to keep you wanting to know what happens next. Who can she trust, where can she turn, what can she do to free herself .....and more....
This is a book which sets the stage for others to come.... the introductory chapter and definitely needs to be followed by the others in the series. There are several story-lines and many questions left unanswered in this book. Worth the read of a new writer.
I am staying the middle ground with this novel, as while it is well written, there was nothing really very different about the novel. It seemed to have the same premise about a young man who came to another country to seek life. Many will enjoy this novel and I do encourage others to read it.
I was pleasantly surprised upon reading this novel. It is both provocative and suspenseful. The novel centered around a "normal family" that wakes up to find that during the night, the world has changed and all have perished save this particular family. The plot line is well thought out and keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend this novel.
Have always found short stories interesting, as they are in fact mini novels, with the job of telling the complete story in few words. This does just that... it flows easily, has the serious, humorous and other emotes of life were you in the instance depicted. You want to continue to read to see where the story goes... and if it ends as you think it will.
