Read from May 24 to 28, 2012

The Next Target was a really suspenseful and intriguing read. There were a few things I personally didn't like (i.e. Jesus appearing in Fatima's dream, Austia getting the response "Trust Me" when she was praying, etc.), but other than that, I really enjoyed it!

At first, I wasn't sure what to think about Zaki (whether to like his character or not), but as the story progressed, I found myself liking him more and more - he may even have been my favorite character in The Next Target.

While there wasn't much mystery (it was pretty much known who the "bad" guy was), there were a few tiny twists/surprises that I liked along with the little bit of romance.

It isn't really a surprise to me that I enjoyed this novel, I've enjoyed other books that are slightly similar to The Next Target (having to do with terrorists, etc.). One other thing I really liked was how I got to know the Muslim religion and some of their customs a little bit better.

The Next Target was a great read and I recommend it if you like suspense books or books that deal with terrorism.

*I received a complimentary ARC copy of this book from the publisher for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

message 1: by Joy (new) - rated it 5 stars

Joy I have read that Jesus does appear to devout Muslims in dreams and even visions and many have searched for a Christian to talk to and have accepted Jesus as a result. I found that part of the book to be totally believable.

message 2: by Els (new) - rated it 5 stars

Els I must agree with Joy here. As Americans we tend to discount dreams and visions. As Ramadan comes to a close I pray that my Muslim friends would have dreams and visions of Christ and know who they can trust to ask questions. As it is clear in the book, they can't ask just anyone without risking their lives.
