"This book will take you on a rollercoaster." That's one great recommendation. I would surely take a look at this book. As always, Adanna, you provided a comprehensive and honest review that captivates any aspiring reader's interests. If you are to write a book of your own, I wish to be the among the first ones to read it!
Oh! Your comment gladdens my heart so much. Thank you for the compliment. I have you penned down already. If I get around to writing my own book, you get first dibs on it. Thank you so much.

I read this book some days back and found to be a nice story. However, some dialogues were so long and uninteresting. Some descriptions were more than necessary. I think your review detailed, sincere, and we'll written. Thanks for this great review.

I totally agree with you on this matter. As much as I root for the author, I found some thing unnecessary. Thank you for your comment.

I read this book too, and it was full of profane language, I will agree with you that the plotting was well driven. Great review.

Not so long ago, I would've stopped at learning that this was a sci-fi genre. But very recently I had such a great experience with my first attempt at this genre when my prejudices were challenged, that I actually got excited to see that this was sci-fi! :D I like a good blend of old and new, and the humour factor was the last straw :) This is going onto my shelf :)

Thank you for such a thorough and inviting review! :D

I was never a fan of sci-fi either. But another book that I read by this author changed my mind. I hope you enjoy it when you read. Thank you for commenting

Andreas was well-rounded in the story. I enjoyed reading his parts. I agree with you that some dialogues were dragged, which affected the narration flow. You did great in your review.

I too found almost all the dialogs too complicated and hard to follow. But I still enjoyed the book mainly thanks to the main character :) Thank you for a great review!

Exactly. I felt as if the prolonged back and forth mind games were unnecessary. Get to the point already! Lol. Thank you for commenting.
