Amazing book!!! What a wonderfully written novel, kudos to the writer!
I received a free download of "The Clout of Gen" by Ahmad Ardalan in exchange for an honest review. This was his debut novel from June 2012.
I found this novel very difficult to classify under a particular genre to classify it in, so I am not going to attempt this. I really enjoyed reading this novel, and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down

John Teddy and wife Susan are a dysfunctional couple, with a young son, Adam... but their marriage has collapsed. John is a newspaper reporter, w...more

What a lovely book! The novel was amazing from the beginning till the end. I liked every detail in it and I also liked that there is some twist in it. I recommend you to read it. This is the first novel for Mr. Ahmad Ardalan and it was very good. He has a great future ahead. I can't wait to read his next novel.
So yeah the book turned out better than expected. Its's the first novel by this Arab author and I loved the plot and the ending. An easy read and a page turner. If you have an e-reader, go for it!

This book was really, really intense and fun. I admit to not wanting to do my work in order to keep reading. It was very surprising. There are a lot of twists and turns in this book and it's fun trying to keep up with the mystery. I think this book was very well written. I didn't find myself having problems with any of the grammar or spelling. I was able to quickly get absorbed into this world and continue turning pages! There also wasn't a...more

Zaid Suror
An intellectually stimulating suspense that has you dwelling about the ending or even the beginning for hours after turing the last page.

Great book from start to finish. Thanks for recommending this to me Britt.
Couldn't even get myself to finish it.
It was OK. A very easy read.
