If you are, were, (or know) a young adult who is feeling unfulfilled and gets bundled into a crazy scheme with a couple of friends, then you'll relate to this competently-told tale. Chris, Leon and Ben have qualified, but haven't yet found adult employment that's right for them. (They also seem unaware of the adage that if you can't do what you love, then love what you do.) The scheme is to steal some diamonds which have been confiscated, a crime which they consider victimless.
I enjoyed reading

Unbreakables was a very exciting and action packed read that I could hardly put down! The book is about 3 guys who are undervalued and underemployed. Together they decided to get away from their normal lives where they struggle to make ends meat. They plan on doing this by robbing a high-end jewelry store where diamonds are being kept for safekeeping by the police – a victimless crime.

This book could easily be made into a movie and join the ranks of the Italian Job and The Town. Although not wit

Unbreakables is sort of a South African crime and adventure novel which involves a bunch of friends that are overly qualified yet un - employed. The three friends Chris, Ben and Leon met in varsity while studying different trades. Together they passed just to be released into the job market and not be able to find any form of stimulating employment.

After years of interviews and failed attempts to earn a decent wage within their fields, the still remaining friends, decide to use their talents o

I wouldn't normally pick up a book like Unbreakables. The whole crime/adventure genre doesn't appeal to me very much. That said, after reading the blurb I was definitely interested in reading this book to see if it could change my mind about the genre.

Unbreakables was a really good book. I was much more interested in it than I thought I would be. The writing and characters definitely kept me interested in the beginning. By the middle of the book, I was totally hooked into the plot.

I enjoyed the

NOTE: I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FOR FREE THROUGH GOODREAD'S FIRST READS IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW.

It took me a while to get into the story, but as soon as it got a little faster paced, I was hooked! The author places great emphasis on creating real characters and it is just so easy to relate to them. I totally loved having it set in South Africa and I found the ending quite a surprise!

Overall, I think that the book starts off a little too slowly, but more than makes up for it in end. I found t

This book started with what you thought was the ending and then worked its way through to how they got there. It was really interesting but the twist at the end made it perfect. It was totally unexpected and I loved it.

Thank you to Goodreads Giveaways for the opportunity to not only read this book to have my own personal copy.

This book was great to read. The only problem I had was it was a bit slow to start off but once the story was rolling it was a great read. The ending surprised me and wasn't what I expected which the author should be praised for in delivering such a terrific ending
