it was amazing
bookshelves: nook

For the life of me, I cannot coherently explain why I couldn't put this book down - but I couldn't. I can't even say it was a slow start but then it picked up. It WAS a slow start - I'm just not sure if it picked up or just became more interesting.

I don't know quite how to describe it except to say picture Ghostbusters in the Bermuda Triangle without the comedy and throw in a dash of Dogma and 2012.

Don't read this thinking it's a story about a guy trying to find his brother, who disappeared while on a trip to Bermuda. That's the short, simple description. And don't read it if you have an aversion to Biblical references and a character who has found a modicum of peace in God and prayer. What this book is really about is God and Satan and demons and angels and giants and - are you confused yet? Yeah, so was I, but it was a pleasant and interesting confusion.

For $0.99 digital, you can find out for yourself and in my opinion that's a good deal. At worst, you'll be hopelessly confused and befuddled. At best, your mind will stretch and, like me, you won't be able to put it down.
