Monday (Mini Book Review) Madness

This week I read:

I did not care for this book – not the writing or the characters or the plot. I almost put it down a dozen times, but one of the blurbs on the cover is by an author who I enjoy, and I trusted his opinion and figured there’d be a payoff at the end. There was a twist, and some people might enjoy this one, but for me it was a disappointment.

This book had an interesting premise, and the author certainly upped the ante with some of the storylines within the book. There was plenty of tension and suspense and some good twists woven into the plot. My only complaint for this one is that there were quite a few main characters, and it took a while for me to keep them straight, but otherwise this was a fun and engaging thriller.

The Good Samaritan by John Marrs ~ #BookReview

35451741I believe it’s fair to say that this is an uncomfortable story. I haven’t read anything with a similar premise before. It felt plausible. Uncomfortably so.

In the same strange way that people tend to rubberneck as they pass a car accident on the side of the road, I couldn’t put it down. What was the motivation? The intention? The underlying sickness involved?

There was a bit of tangling of the web of intrigue as the author worked all the loose ends, but it came together in a rather interesting way. It was entertaining, to say the least, the plot keeping my attention to the last page. Give the synopsis on the back jacket some consideration before deciding if it’s for you or not, but I liked it. 5 stars!
