If you are the type of person who hates adventure, action and excitement, do not pick up this book. If, however, you are a person much like myself that likes to be captivated by gripping edge-of-your-seat action, then you will definitely want to read this book. The action is non-stop, from the first paragraph to the last. I lost a little sleep reading Points of View because I simply couldn't stop until I know what happened next. It is a well-written tale, and one that grips the imagination. You ...more

Tony Thorne's "Points of View" is a standalone read. I don't usually read thrillers, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I loved it. It's a great read with lots of twists and turns. An interesting cocktail with two parts Walter Mitty, one part Jason Bourne, and three parts Inception! Did you ever see that Buffy the Vampire episode where she can't figure out if she's in the looney bin or not? This book has a similar vibe. Love it! Tony always has something interesting for me to read.
