I wrote the book. I suppose I should like it. I do, and I hope everyone else does as well. Please, if you get a chance to read it, leave a comment, rate it, etc. I appreciate your feedback.

As I work on my upcoming novels, I will take your feedback to heart.
It was definately a thriller, no real mystery involved. I found it to be well written, some christian themes worked in, so if that turns you off of books you better not read this one. I loved the story and how the main character came to know himself as he dealt with adversity during his hike through the Ozarks.
**This is a shortened version of the full review I did on my blog.

The imagery Michael uses to describe the small town in Arkansas where he stops to buy camping gear and rations could be spot on for just about any tiny, one horse town anywhere in North America.

I liked the story, it took awhile to figure out how everything fit together, but kept rolling along throughout the book. The ending felt a bit rushed, but overall I enjoyed the book.
Loved it! So looking forward to more. From start to finish it was flowing, easy to read, and kept me hooked. You know it's a good read if it meets those criteria.
Really good book. It flowed well and kept your interest. It was a hard book to put down. Highly recommend it!

In eighth grade, Robert wrote his first short story, a sort of "Children of the Corn" knock-off. He wanted so ba
