The boy done good!
on 18 September 2005
I have read all of Steve Alten's books and this is by far the best yet!
I absolutely loved the "Meg" series and wasn't exprcting to enjoy this one as much, but my oh my, was I wrong or what?
The storyline hurtles along at a frenetic pace, drawing you deeper and deeper into the drama upon every turn of a page, to the point where you have to put the book down to draw a breath!
There is one part of the book so creepy it stopped me sleeping one night, ALWAYS the sign of a master at work in my eyes, rather tired though they may have been the next morning.
The lead character is very engaging, and comes across as a "real" human being, with baggage and issues galore - all of which assist Steve Alten with his plot twists and turns!!
Sure, we could get picky about written dialect etc, but let's not, let's just focus on the amazing journey this fantastic book takes you on.
Buy it and never go near dark waters again.
I PROMISE YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
