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
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 downloaded this ebook purely off the name, by searching for Motorcycle related books. I came across a Fictional book by the name of "At 61 Degrees". I had no clue what it was all about and had never heard about it before. All i knew was that it was related to motorcycle racing. So I bought it immediately. i am not an avid book reader and i only read about motorsport racers (biographies etc).
From the get go I simply could not put this book down, All the things I ever ever dream t about coming true were in this book. A young motorcycle rider dreaming about rubbing shoulders with the best riders motorcycle racing has to offer. A young guy full of hopes and dreams with a rise to stardom and finally becoming one of the top men in his field.
What i did not expect was the second half of the book that took me through a whole lot of mixed emotions, and a lot of what i was reading really hitting home. I can say without embarrassment that its the only book that put a lump in my throat and made me shed a tear.
My wife, who has, shall we say a limited capacity for motorcycles and racing has also agreed to read it this coming weeks after seeing the way i reacted to the book, it has her intrigued.
Hopes, dreams, laughter, Sadness. A story that will hit home, especially to all the brave servicemen and there family's that have been injured, hurt or killed in a war zone. Intrigued???? Please read it.........Thanks. Danny
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.
