The Accidental Existentialist is a fast paced story that really sucks you in quickly, sets the stage, gives you just enough to get you an idea of what's going on - allowing your imagination to fill in the blanks - and then delivers what is the climax to what could have easily been fleshed out into a 400 pages thriller in the same vein as some of Ted Dekker's best books. Joshua really has a knack for telling a gripping tale without much fluff, but not so terse that you feel like you're getting a cliff notes version of a book. He even manages to pack in a few surprises in this mini-thriller that were pretty enjoyable and the action was pretty much non-stop starting at about page 3.
Definitely recommended anytime you've got ~30 minutes to sit down with a book and you're looking for a little action/thriller type novel.
