I was provided with a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Find below my thoughts on this book and this new format.
About the Book:
As mentioned above, this book was provided as a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I am planning to break this review into two parts – one about the format, and the other about the actual plot.
The BookShots format: As you all may already know, or if not read on anyway, BookShots is a new venture where the book written will be a complete story in under 150 pages. I must admit that the idea is interesting and after reading the book in under 2 hours, it was a hit with me. I love the fact that the story is short and the book small enough to be carried in your handbag! 😛
As for the plot, the famous Alex Cross is back in a short, fast paced adventure where he has to confront a villain from his past, someone he thought to be dead. The story is well written and the author does not once deviate from the main plot. It is clear that the characters are known and not much background details are provided. Short, crisp and to the point are words I would use to describe this story. What was most pleasing as that the pace never wavered and the author managed to ensure that the reader is in for a roller-coaster ride.
In keeping with the new format, I have decided to keep my review short as well. There’s not much else to say without revealing the entire story itself. Read on and do share your thoughts with us.
