THIS BOOK SPOILED ME By Carol Frandolig on January 4, 2017
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase I am spoiled. Reading this adventure thriller by James Strauss has ruined me. I no longer enjoy reading boring books of this genre. It was a privilege to live life in the author’s shoes for 245 pages, although it ended too soon. He wrote about Hawaii as no tourist would ever see it, descriptions of scenic beauty, and tiny places on the map like Rabbit Island. His characters seemed real, very real. Arch Patton was the most interesting. I have a feeling that the author is just as intelligent, savvy, and world-wise as Arch or how else could he write about him? If you temporarily want to escape your mundane world, have a great adventure, and safely re-enter your own reality again, this book is for you.

Format: Kindle Edition This is an ‘old-fashioned’ kind of a novel. It takes you on an adventure and the only thing you regret in the reading is that it is so short. I loved the Hawaii portrayed in this novel and want to go there to see if the places the author describes really exist. I’ll bet that they do. Arch Patton is so human. He’s not like the traditional macho creature so often associated with this genre of writing. So real. I can’t wait for the next in the series, which I hope is a series.
