Product Description

Product Description


Authors note.
I've been asked many times by various people what inspired me to write this book. The answer is the same now as it was when I first put pen to paper. It's in recognition of the motorcycle riders and racers out there who are probably fast enough and talented enough to be up there with the best riders in the world, whether that be Superbikes or MotoGP, but will never get the chance.
This book is also dedicated to a friend who one sunny morning climbed onto his bike and never came back.

A Stunning & Moving story that will have you gripped from beginning to end as you follow one mans Breathtaking & Emotional journey into the world of Motorcycle Riding and the MotoGP World Championship. An "on the edge of your seat" read that will have you discovering all of your emotions. Experience the jubilation, humour, frustration and desperation that comes with being a motorcyle rider, racing elbow to elbow with the best riders in the world against the likes of Valentino Rossi,Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner.

When life doesn’t give us what we hope for, we are forced to dream.

But what happens when the dream becomes a nightmare and betrayal is your only friend?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping 7 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow...Downloaded this book on my kindle and took it away on holiday. Unfortunately the Tenerife sun just had to wait. I started to read this and got so engrossed in the story, just couldn't put the book down. I got so involved with the plot, I even dreamt about Aaron's next race and how well he would compete. For someone who can't settle into a book, I was amazed at this one. I am going to recommend this read to my friends. Congratulations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive story 5 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like some of the other readers here, I only downloaded this e-book on the strength that it was about motorcycles. I didn't read any reviews or descriptions of the book prior to downloading so the story really was a journey into the unknown! Once started, I found the book hard to put down. If you are into bikes I would really recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read 22 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently met the author of this book while on holiday, I was talking to another fella about bikes like you do, it turned out he had the same model as me, the author was on another table who joined in the conversation, also being a biker we got chatting, asking him what he did for a living etc, he causally mentioned he had taken some time out to write a book!
the wife made a note of the title and on my return I downloaded the book.
I finished the book yesterday and found it to be a very good story indeed, I wish the fella good luck with any future writing.

Having worked in the moto gp paddock for most of my working life I found this book very hard to believe, things do not happen this way but as I go further and further in could not put it down,the twist at the end makes it a must read and opens up the full story

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 27 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book to get me through long hard 12 hour nights. Although you know the content, read as being reality is pure fiction, you cant help to get fully immersed into the whole story. I let myself get fully immersed and got carried along without being able to put it down, totally engrossed and hanging on to every word.

Then it happened!! 75% of the way through the author dashed every dream and euphoria that i had let myself get drawn in by. The ending of this book is, I would say the worst i have ever read. I was actually physically sweating with fustration, already physically and mentally exhausted by my 12 hour nights it made me nauseous, no other book had every made me feel this way, not even Irvine Welsh's experimentation with literature. 5 stars for the beginning 1 star for the end.

I wish I could get the author by the scruff of the neck and beat him until he wrote the ending of the book I was expecting!! I even wish I could get my money back even though its only a paltry £2.....

I read this book after winning A KINDLE in a raffle. It is only available as a download but after reading about the content I had to give it a go. Basically the story is a fictional story involving the motogp paddock as we know it but with the central character being in it as well . As a lifelong Rossi fan and motorclist I was hooked from the start of the book to the finish as it took me on its many twists and turns. Brilliant read and great because its from a new writer.

Kindle is brilliant Because-
In The old days you would get people telling stories round the campfire etc. Some of these people could be fantastic storytellers but not being academics or writers it would be unlikely for them to get a publishing deal . But now it is possible for an Unknown writer to get his book published via Kindle .

Mike S Martin is a brilliant story teller and he will only get better.
If you are into motorcycling ,Motogp or any motorcycle racing this book grips you from the start.

The big bonus is that a fair bit of the proceeds are going to the Charities Riders for Health and Help for Heroes

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story
It keeps you gripped from start to finish. Many surprises along the way and it certainly leaves you thinking. You forget in places that it is fiction.

A nice read, holds your attention but at times is a bit far fetched for someone that is into bikesport. Was not expecting the twist.

Overall enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Twist and turns
Real detail in the background which draws you into the world of motorcycle racing. Interesting turn in the tales ending and one which is quite unsettling.
