Hey guys I am Back again with a new book Its called “No Way Back“by Rick Mofina and its 485 pages and I am about half way through on page 217. So far the book has been pretty interesting and a lot has happened. The story takes place in San Fransisco California and is about a crime repoter named Tom Reed.What I have read so far Reed has just quit his job but on that day a big robber homicide happens and Reed hurries to what will be his last big story and to go out with a bang.When Reed arrives he is shocked to find out from a staff member at the jewelry store that the hostage is his own wife, and now Reed is Frozen with shock and confronts the crime Inspector. So far thats all I have read and I want to keep reading more and more but just don’t have the time between work and school.The book is very good and definitely a page turner or at least it seems like its a pager turner just because I left off on section where the book was execiting and seems like its on a cliff hanger of the book .
The beginning of the book seemes very slow and drawn out but has gotten better. The book also seems kind of long from what of the story I have read so far. The point of view seems to go from several different characters and gets kinda of closed when the only point of view should be From the main character Tom Reed. Other than reading the book I haven’t had a lot happening in my life , just trying to be a normal college kid and try to get my life together. I have been focusing a lot on school and my classes and taking a break from my social life on the weekends. Hope you enjoyed my update and I will get back to you guys next week.

As Readers can tell from the description above this book has lots of action and is very exciting. I really enjoyed The writing style in this book it is very descriptive and is easy for readers to comprehend. The book is definitely a page turner and keeps you on your toes. J.B Turner wrote this book very well and has many other sub titles that are just as good as this book. I would Highly suggest for people to give this book a try. The only thing i would change about this book is that is very similar to every other action filled book or move. The book has the same kind of characters, plot and ending as most of the action books out there and is easy for the reader to guess whats going to happen next in the book.
After reading “The Girl on the train” by Paula Hawkins, I would like to start this review by saying that this book is a great book and at only 336 pages its a moderate read but once you start its hard to put down. This book has a great deal of suspense and mystery and if you like plot twist you will love this book. I personally hate books that I can guess the ending and plot just by reading the first 20 pages, but not this book it keeps twisting and turing through out the entire novel. Not only do I like the story line of the book I mostly Like how Hawkins conveys the story and describes a book that goes from just being a normal story about a girls life to a murder mystery.
The book starts off with a middle aged woman named Rachel riding a train, the same train and seat that she rides in every day. As Rachel rides the train everyday she looks out the window and vicariously envisions her life through a couple she see’s sitting on the porch outside their house, she has even gone as far to nick name them. The couples house is in the same neighborhood that she used to live in before she and her ex husband (Tom) got a divorce because he was having an affair with a woman named Anna. Rachel doesn’t know this yet but the woman from the perfect couple that she sees everyday is actually the nanny for her ex-husband (tom) and his new wife (anna). As Rachel struggles with depression from her divorce she one day sees the nanny (the woman from the perfect couple) from the train window and sees that she is having an affair on her husband, angered by this Rachel gets off the train and confronts the girl about cheating on her perfect husband but the girl disappears as Rachel is yelling at her, but as Rachel got off the train a man that also rides the train everyday saw Rachel get off that stop and notice that its a different stop than she usually gets off so he followed her to make sure she was okay while Rachel was yelling at the girl the man saw her yell at the nanny. The story moves to the next day and Rachel doesn’t remember anything after she got off the train that day because she is an alcholic and was drunk that day so she blacked out, later that day she gets interviewed by an officer because the woman that she went to confront is missing and the officer tells her that the woman is her ex husbands nanny. The reasons the officer is interviewing her is because the man from the train told the police that he saw Rachel yelling at the other woman. The story is then a huge mystery to find out in network of related people that don’t know each other to see who knows why the woman is missing or dead and to also see who was that man that the missing woman was having an affair with.
