It’s a game
First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book to read and review.
The best part of the book is that it is highly interactive and provides you an entertainment factor. The book is an experience that is much more than just reading. It is a game where you decide what the characters would do and how the story would move forward and this makes it an exciting game of reading and living the part.
The book astonishingly has an amazing integrity considering the fact that the book is a collaboration of more than one author. Interesting part is that the collaboration is so pristine and seamless that you can’t actually pinpoint which author wrote which part and that is a brilliant feat to achieve because it shows the flexibility and adaptability of each writer that was involved in the book.
I loved everything about the book. The narration, language and most importantly the flow, which is very crucial because even while you jump from one section to another, there is a synchrony and you can feel the smoothness of the plot irrespective of how or what path you choose for the book.
The only thing I hated about the book is the end because no matter which path you took, each ending for me was incomplete and sort of being cheated off because the buildup is so much that in comparison the endings are a huge disappointment. In fact one of the track was so enthralling and intriguing that almost at a major point the book decided to be a cliffhanger and I in desperation went ahead and brought the sequel only to be disappointed.
But Apart from the end, the book is amazing, the plot almost makes you remember Jack reacher in his earlier stage from Lee Child’s famous series
The book is a pure adrenaline rush and I would definitely recommend to try it for its unique interactive and game experience and for the reading experience as well.
