Suspension--#72 finished

It started out kind of slow and indifferent. I wasn't too interested in the story much at the beginning but once the main character Andy, was beaten up and the locked himself in his apartment, the story changed. Throw in it is New York and 9/11 happens and a minor character suddenly becomes a major character with a good back story and it really becomes fun. I was really impressed with this abrupt change in the story and all of the twists that seemed like a paranoid mind at work. The writer seemed to really take a chance with this because it was kind of confusing and certainly not the normal flow of a novel. It was enjoyable reading because it seemed as if it was being written by the seat of your pants.

The ending was okay, never really answered everything but you kind of have to go on the belief that things will work out at least for the main character. The minor or secondary characters left many unanswered questions that I wouldn't mind reading about in the future if a followup novel occurs. Of course it would be hard to duplicate or re-surprise the readers again in a followup.

Well, there is 1 person out there with this book on their WL so I will post it & see if it goes anywhere. The Louisiana Purchase was requested once the only WL person timed out. I am not sure how people find out about these, but there must be something on the system telling them of recently posted books of few copies or something like that. I obviously don't watch for that so no idea if that is the case or not.

I am reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Dog Days right now. I will probably look for a 3rd book tonight to get started on as well.
