Gripping book - I had a quick read at work, and then a bit more, and then a bit more, and then finished the book that day at work ...... not having done much work.
This is a simple story, well told, and it grips you, and you have to keep going to see what is next. The author has the gift of not just telling a story, but of giving the feel of being part of the story.
Damn good for $0.99.
The King's Favourite
on June 03, 2012
"The King's Favourite" is the strong, gripping sequel to "Not a Man". A friend loaned me "Not a Man", which I didn't think would be to my taste, but it just sucked me in to the world of Shuki. "The King's Favourite" continues the same exciting story, in the same exciting way, and sucked me in again.
"The world of Shuki" is well worth the visit, but don't be surprised if you have to get both, and start wishing for the next episode.
I bought this book because of the "Shuki series", but found this one to be different - less confronting. A very good story, well written, good "word pictures". This author takes the reader on an interesting and entertaining journey to surprising destinations. Damned if I know where she gets her concepts from, definitely not experience, but also credible and well researched. Well worth the tiny expense, and an excellent read - I don't waste time reading books unless they "hold me", and this writer has the gift.
Now I am going to try her next.
Gripping story. This author has the knack of putting you in the story, along with the characters. The reader ends up following the fortunes of the boys in the home, and living their hopes and failures, and even sensing their dreams.
Good strong them - gripping until the end.
Well worth the pittance it cost, and it gave me great enjoyment.
