Cherry Picking was my metro commute read this summer. Parts of the novel were so suspenseful that I actually missed my stop on the train and didn't even notice! I highly recommend this book to someone who enjoys mysteries and plays detective on their own to figure out the characters and plot. The book's structure is similar to the movie Crash where a lot of individual story-lines start to mingle and intertwine in really unique and creative ways. Even with these separate story-lines, the book never gets slow or dull and always kept my interest. The theme of good versus evil in the book really shows an interesting side to how far people are willing to go for self-preservation. I think the author did a great job of keeping the book tightly knit and not letting too many loose ends fly around. While the book doesn't set itself up for a sequel, I'd really like to see one come out of this. I think one of the author's main strengths is the descriptive quality within this book. He takes time to set the stage for the reader so this novel really reads like a mini-series and the flow of the novel makes it easy to picture. All in all a great book!

This novel is clearly in the can't-put-it-down category: faced-paced from beginning to end. I felt continually compelled to read on and to find out the next stage in the development. I enjoyed the challenge of putting together lots of pieces in a jigsaw puzzle as the different strands gradually came together. By the time I was a third way through the novel, it began make to sense, certain things began to dawn on me - although I also needed to refer back from time to time to remind myself who a particular character was. But this was part of the enjoyment. As I read on, it gradually became clear how this Nigel Gamble obtained his ability to predict the future. Nothing spooky or supernatural at all! (But I don't want to spoil it for you).

I also began to ask myself a few interesting philosophical questions: What would have happened if someone had interfered in a certain way in my own life at such-and-such a stage? Where would I be now? Would I be the same person? Is there such a thing as predestination? What if there is? What if there isn't? How open is the future? To what extent is my life determined by my own character? By circumstances? By coincidence? By other forces? And what about history itself? Although the novel itself contains no religious elements whatsoever, this novel may even serve as a good starting point for a discussion between believers and non-believers in God. In fact, the big question that you are left with at the end is: What if?

I was just recently given a kindle as a birthday present and decided to start using it instead of blasting my ears out with music everyday on my way to work.
This was one of my first purchases / downloads from the kindle store and it has lived up to my expectations.
The writing was fantastic and had me hooked from the first page.
The characters are superb and you get to know everything about them - so much so it's as though they are real people.
There are plots, sub plots and all kinds of shennanigans to keep you interested from start to finish.
Very hard to put this book down and I will definitely be buying the paperback version as a way of a thank you.
Thrilling read from start to finish and I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It was recommended to me by a friend and although it isn't usually my literature genre, I decided to be adventurous and give it a go. The story was so unlike anything I've read before, I found myself daydreaming about what could possibly happen next whilst I was meant to be working!! Its a very fast past book, with never a dull moment! I definitely recommend this book and hope you enjoy its originality as much as I did!! The only small criticism is the book cover, unfortunately people do judge books by their covers, and this one does not do justice to the story inside!

Not my usual genre of book, but I throughly enjoyed every moment of the authors first and hopefully not last novel.

A very clever and gripping thriller that keeps you guessing from start to finish.

Mark my words "One day this will be a Hollywood blockbuster!"

So I started reading this book, thinking it was a tale of intrigue and corporate skulduggery. Which it is. But there are a few points as you progress that don't quite add up. People's history seems to change and things happen that don't quite add up. Has the author lost the plot (literally) on occasions? Well no. The book metamorphoses into a bit of a science fiction work. At first, this is disconcerting. Here I was, happily reading a book and getting to know characters and how they interacted. Then around half way through the book, there appears this door which is a device for time travelling. A bit like a Tardis only not as spacious inside.

To be honest, this derailed me and I thought about giving up reading the book. But I persisted because I had enjoyed it up until then and I'm glad I did. My enjoyment of the story was quickly back on track and this continued to the end.

So, give it a go. It's worth it. Just don't pigeon hole it too quickly (if at all).
