by Nishan A Kumaraperu Book : Fiction
Expected the worst, but ended up Impressed!   (2010-04-12)
I found this book browsing Amazon.com and was a bit aprehensive to purchase it. Some reviews were well recieved, but others were downright harsh. Regardless, I decided to buy it anyway, simply because it was only $10 and the subject intrigued me.
Interestingly enough, I can agree with both the 'Harsh Reviewers' and the 'Loved It Reviewers'. Here's my two cents on this book. The story was very original and quite well contrived. Yes, there were some mistakes in grammar and sentence structure, but I'm not one who discards a short story simply based on this.
There was not much description during the story and it makes quite an effort just getting to the point. Actually, I don't think most of the people who purchased the book even read the Author's note that in fact stated that he wrote it this way on purpose.
Regardless, I am a comic book super fan so in a way, I am used to just reading the plot points to a story. As such, I must say that I enjoyed this book immensely. It was definitely one of the most original & interesting stories I have read. I'm looking forward to the sequel!
