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.

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...more

Nicholas can't remember anything before he was 6 years old. He was adopted and his earliest memory was with his adopted parents.

Most misleading title. Ever.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
