This novel uses one of my favorite formulas: take a few separate story lines and anticipate the points where they will begin to intersect.
Await Your Reply lives up to all the hype I had heard about it. Not only
did it deliver a satisfying resolution to these characters' stories, but
each story was very interesting, and I cared about all of the characters.
Each chapter would end with the anticipation of getting back to another
set of characters you had left behind two chapters ago. This made this
novel a really fast ride.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys suspense and story lines that
involve concerns about....no. I'm not even giving that away.

The less you know about Await Your Reply, the more enhanced your enjoyment will be. Go into this raw, like I did, and enjoy.

I'm trying to be a little more conservative with the five-star reviews,
and this one isn't what I would describe as "amazing", but I really liked it, which constitutes a four-star review. Yet, I'm always so impressed when stories like this come around, and these types of novels make me giddy.
I'd like to rank this four and a half stars, but I'm feeling like topping this one up rather than truncating it. The giddiness factor, you know.

Good stuff, Dan. I'll read you again.
