The 11th percent passed on all expectations I had of this book and more, the plot is fascinating to take in, the characters are instantly loveable in their own ways with their on quirks and talents. Each page sucks you deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole that T.H.Morris has created, I could read this book in one sitting ( not because it lacks substance of anything near that of the matter) but I found myself wanting to savour it, think about it, mull the quite frankly brilliant ideas around in my head.
If you are struggling to find books that take hold, or keep interest all I can say is please, please read this beauty of a book.
One of my favourite books I have ever read.
The story is well-written, with lots of action and plenty of suspense. I was hooked from the first page.
Johan and the supporting cast were well-developed, had their own personalities, and were, for the most part, likeable. Even the unpleasant Trip, turned out not to be a villain, which I didn’t see coming!
Thanks to the descriptive and engaging writing, I felt as though I had joined Johan and his new friends in the challenging world of the 11th Percenters.
The book ended well, leaving room to continue the story, but without a cliffhanger.
Thank you to the author for gifting me an eCopy of the book.

Jonah Rowe works at a boring job with an overbearing boss, struggles with writer’s block while attempting to complete manuscripts for his novels, lives alone and has few friends, and is still grieving the death of his beloved grandmother. A conversation with his boss in the first few chapters foreshadows hidden reserves of self-confidence and inner strength, which earned my respect and make me instantly like him as a character. After a particularly trying day at work, Jonah leaves and starts seeing visions-the world has turned blue, there are spirits and a cat that remains his companions throughout the novel. Later that night, he decides to go out for a while, when he is accosted by two malevolent spirits. A kindly spirit named Jonathan intervenes, and Jonah arrives at an estate where other Eleven Percenters stay. Feeling he has finally found his place with his new friends, he decides to develop his eleven-percent potential to its fullest. But there is danger lurking, and Jonah may be the only one who can unravel the web of deceit that he and his friends have been wrapped in.
Morris creates excellent characters. The reader will feel an instant connection to Jonah, and later will meet his new friends: the health-nut painter Reena, the fitness-obsessed sculptor Terrence, even the musical but disagreeable Trip. I especially liked Jonathan, a spirit protector who serves as the mentor for Jonah and his friends. A few of his characters are “epitome” characters who fall flat (such as the sycophantic, tartish Jessica) but they are so minor to the story that their further development is not essential. For the most part, the characterization is excellent and Morris does a great job at making the reader feel connected to them.
The plot is fast paced and provides lots of action and twists. It is not predictable by any means. Morris creates a lot of suspense and keeps the reader guessing. He does take a few convenient fictional liberties (such as one character’s ability to freeze out a fire), but they do not create plot holes or lessen believability. The flawless narration is one of the best parts of this book. Morris has an outstanding ability to choose the right words to convey his meaning. This is part gives the books a philosophical feel. There were so many quotes I loved from this book but one of y favorites was “The brain resides in the head but the mind encompasses the entire body.” Indeed, one of the major themes in The 11th Percent is the mastery of the mind over the body. The Eleventh Percenters can only reach their full potential once they learn strict mind control.
A highly recommended read, The 11th Percent is the first in a trilogy. I am looking forward to the other two books. Five stars.
Well, not exclusively, anyway. It has ghosts, haunted houses, cemeteries, that kind of thing, but doesn't reference the holiday specifically. Which is a good thing, I think. It stands alone!
I was pleasantly surprised with this book and really enjoyed my time with it despite some questions about the ending. It had a good variety of characters, the MC had lots of room to grow, and I liked the diversity among those in the book.
What this book REALLY has going for it is the fresh ideas. It's a good and bad thing, really. So many awesome ideas (which I've never read before) also mean that a lot of explanation is required, and this happens heavily in the first 30% of the book. Happily, I didn't feel it dragged.
The writing is good, truly. While this is definitely a first book from this author, I felt a lot of heart and passion. The ending, however, let me down.
When it came to Jonah, (throughout the book) I felt like everything came FAR too easily. He just 'happened' to stumble on the needed weapons, and just happened to find his friends right away, and just happened to survive a second attack from the bad guy (who gave up far too easily in the final scenes), without any of them getting hurt through all this mess. Not to mention that he had REALLY angry spirits giving him power (who, though rabid and evil, agreed to an endowment after like 1 minute of conversation- too easy!), but was able to 'magically handle it' without any problems. And I found it difficult to believe that the bad guy would just leave him alive TWICE. Jonah's writing issues were never finalized either.
All in all, I loved it. I loved the concept of endowment from spirits, the idea of 'life just evolving into a different form and not dying' as well as a couple of other things. There were many 'made me think' moments and philosophy concepts that I appreciated.
The author T.H. Morris transports his audience to a credible location that anyone can relate to. He introduces us to characters that are familiar to us and have lives similar to our own. Then Mr. Morris throws a what if things weren't so pedestrian and straight forward twist into the mix and that's when things get interesting. Not only does the author enable you to believe what you know, he is able to express and describe what is unknown in an equally believable way. Well done sir. I'll be moving on to book 2 thank you very much.
The plot itself was a little standard but its strength is the interesting premise and the fascinating interactions with the spirit world. Critiques: I'm always averse to the use of terms like the b-word and ragging, and of course disrespecting tofu. Also the book is a little rough on format and editing.
Morris is a wonderful story teller with a really cool premise and I kept turning the pages to learn what happened next. Fun book and recommended for lovers of paranormal or spirit writing.
