Paul Pen ↠ 4 SummaryFor being so excited with the reading I recommend this book fully Stay tuned for my full blog review Nonstop Thriller Hitchcock LikeStarts slow and normal with the tension building until you find yourself propelled unknowingly to the uncertain end Great story and excellent translation Make sure you ave enough time to finish once you start The author masterfully constructed a well written story of an ordinary family headed for disaster The plotline is so as the tension unfolds gradually and intensifies with every page filled by for disaster The plotline is so believable the tension unfolds gradually and intensifies with every page filled by and unexpected jolts and so many unpredictable twists Almost a five star rating the only thing lacking is that it likely can only be read once WhewThis was a most satisfying reading experience that will slowly raise your eartrate and blood pressure without terrorizing you too much Recommend for 16 because of adult themes and content but you won t likely need post reading recovery therapy I was amazed at Business Networks in Syria how well the translator brought the story to life without anachronisms or accidental misstatements Only factual error was probably noting early trip distance as miles rather than likely kilometers But no big deal unless you re familiar with the geography The Audible dramatic narration was also well done and paced appropriately to the story making the reading listening experience seamlessly enjoyable I definitely plan to read works by Paul Pen Now that was a thriller Iad to put it down several times as my Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality heart was beating fast and I could barely breathe That doesn tappen often when reading it was like watching a movie Wowza The story was dark and disturbing to be sure but incredibly written plotted and translated from the Spanish Five HUGE stars for this one Well worth paying for the Kindle Under the Water is a very difficult book to review without spoiling it so I m going to keep this as vague as possible Frank and Grace along with their two children Audrey and Simon are making a break from Seattle to move to Boston after a string of terrible luck They are Sheltie at the Funfair hoping for a fresh start in a new city to set things right again One night while on the road they encounter a woman and let s just say that their lives will never be the same again This bookad such a feeling of dread and I Problems and Solutions for Undergraduate Analysis Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics had aard time putting this
