I got on Amazon to write my five-star review and was appalled at the bad reviews there. I don’t recall noticing the bad ones when I was there before. There are many good reviews, but the few bad ones are too many. This is one of the best books I’ve read the past couple years and to see all the bad reviews, I’m shocked. I enjoyed the book very much. When you choose whether or not to read this book, remember there are bad readers too. I don’t think I’m one of them. The story is powerful and deserves a good review.
Now, with that said, I first saw the cover of this book last year and knew that I would read it one day. I had no idea what the Trojan Project was or how good the story might be, only that I was drawn to the cover. Over the past months, I learned more about the author and read a couple of the reviews. I purchased the book and it sat on my TBR list for quite a while.
Finally, the book came up to read. I immediately was drawn into the story from the first page. Page after page I read and did not want to put the book down, but I had no choice. The story did not escape my memory and I was drawn back again and again to finish the book. I had to know what would happen. I read the book from cover to cover in a week, which is very fast for me. That alone should attest to the powerful nature of the story.
The story is suspenseful and the characters are described well as were their surroundings. I felt I knew all the main characters. As Sara, Andy, and the kids made a mad dash to London, I felt as if I were there with them. I found myself tense with every close call. And Pete and Josh? They were quite lucky. I won’t spoil it for you. You’ll need to read it for yourself.
This story is easy to read and hard to put down. I am pleased to give the story five stars and I highly recommend it to anyone, young and old, man or woman alike.
