About Michael Wallace

I've trekked across the Sahara on a camel, ridden an elephant through a tiger preserve in Southeast Asia, eaten fried guinea pig, and been licked on the head by a skunk. In a previous stage of life I programmed nuclear war simulations, smuggled refugees out of a war zone, and milked cobras for their venom. I speak Spanish and French and grew up in a religious community in the desert.

I hope you enjoy my books as much as I've enjoyed my crazy life.

Review by: Dev Love Press on Sep. 07, 2011 :
This book is fantastic.

It is gripping and compelling all the way through, never losing urgency and tension. The mystery is revealed so carefully, never too much revealed at a time. I felt invested in the story right from the first page.

Despite it being a thriller, the characters are well drawn, interesting, varied, and believable. The dialog is realistic.

I'm sensitive to the pacing of stories and how much is told v.s. shown. I thought this book kept the balance of both those things perfectly. It's been a long time since I felt so engaged in a story. I was completely engrossed all the way through.

There's a reveal half way through that upped the tension so much and made me care so much that I was reading late into the night, wanting to know how it turned out!

I've never read anything by Michael Wallace before, but I will be reading more of his work in the future. I am definitely a fan now!

[I particularly appreciated the compassionate and humane way that the residents of the mental health facility were portrayed]
