Six Days is, in a word, riveting. It held my attention to the point of causing me to delay eating sushi, and that's pretty remarkable. But for those of you who don't know me, let me put it in a different context.
When I first picked up Six Days, it was nothing more than a book with a cool cover and a way to pass the time while waiting for a takeout order that was taking too long, but then I read the first page and was instantly sucked into writer Kelli Owen's world. The majority of the novel takes place in a fairly small physical space, but rather than taking away from it, it adds so much to the pervasive feeling of borderline claustrophobia, a feeling that grows more and more intense as the main character, Jenny, explores her surroudings. Jenny is incredibly well written as a character, deep and complete with a dark past and spectres that rise out of the darkness all around her. I felt for her, experienced each new emotion as she did, and the terror she felt became a reality due to the completely engrossing way Kelli has penned this twisted tale. The other characters in the book are just as deep, well written, and three dimensional. It's a nonstop thrillride that'll leave you breathless at its conclusion and, if you're like me, begging for more of this awesome author's work. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, something spine tingling, sharp, and original, look no further than Six Days.
