|✔✖ My Review Check List ✖✔
AKA significant signs for a good book
Here ? The Good Samaritan by R.C. Boldt
✔I might not have pulled an all-nighter with this one but still I had problems in putting it down – I wanted to get to the bottom of things. There was suspense that was pulling me back time and time again into the story
✔There wasn’t much reason to talk with this book it was more a loud thinking on the plot – the characters were more silent then others I read lately. But somehow that was the strength of this book.
✔Not much reason to laugh here if I am being honest. It is more on the thoughtful side of things but in this special case that really made no difference in the complete impression that book left with me
✔There is a def. YES on the hugging part in this book. And there were lots of characters here that deserved one. And at least one I would have loved to punch – and not in the “punch some sense” way.
✔There is far too much “REAL” about this book to not remember it. It was my first book by this author and I directly checked on her older books. While most of them do not spark anything with me plot wise – there is one that I placed on my list and that is “Out of the Ashes (Out of #2)” – I will be reading that in near future and I will be sure to keep an eye on the next releases.
My Essence ?
This book holds a mirror to our faces – at least it did to me. In the way I look at people or even think about them. It is not easy to digest if you read it with that mirror in front of you but it’s a story that deserves to be told. The author wrapped it in a packing with suspense and well developed characters that simple make this book a great read.
