Just go ahead and read this review. Also, I don't like books that have lies in their titles, for this Tale was not "Extraordinary" at all.

This book entertains in its simplicity. There was a warmth in the human relations which made this a pleasure to read. Above all though, I liked how straightforward, likeable and believable the characters were. Fantastic work.

I don't normally read such adventure books. I am more into thrillers and sci-fi. However, "The Extraordinary Tale of Nicholas Pierce" really stood out to me as a remarkable piece of work. It's simplicity is everything. It truly incites fascination in human relations.

First of all, the characters were quite interesting. I am not saying that character development was truly immaculate, but it was good. I had a hard time picturing what certain characters looked like. What clothes were they wearing? W

Nicholas can't remember anything before he was 6 years old. He was adopted and his earliest memory was with his adopted parents. Nicolas suffers from OCD, but is able to keep his quirks pretty well under control. One day he receives a mysterious box in the mail with a note signed from an uncle Nathan. Nicolas decides to go in search of his birth parents along with a friend who works as a barista.

I pretty much enjoyed the story. I think the part when the get mugged by what was supposed to be Mor

The writing was very concise and there was a lot more telling than showing. I would chalk this up to the main character being socially stunted, but there a couple of passages told from other character's points of view and it's written the same way.
There wasn't anything very extraordinary about this tale. It moved along at a good pace, so I didn't get bored with it. It could definitely benefit from a proofreaders to catch all of the grammatical mistakes.

In short: awful. The story composition was jagged and the prose was simplistic. Additionally, the "tale" wasn't really all that "extraordinary". One of the worst books I've read in quite a long time.

I enjoyed this although I have to say that I didn't like the way it ended, didn't hate the ending it just wasn't what I was expecting. Overall--I enjoyed the fact that considering the story was dealing with a guy who had a problem with OCD, there were a lot of unexpected twists and turns.

Interesting story with a good character. Could have used a little bit more "depth". I wanted to know more about Jessica and more about the characters that were just brushed upon along the way.

Not a bad read, it was easy and concise. I found it got better as the story went on, and maybe leaves you with a few questions unanswered.

Most misleading title. Ever.

Disappointing. The characters are interesting, and there are some good aspects to the story, but the writing is only mediocre, and the pacing is uneven.
