HASH(0x9fb3b888) out of 5 stars wow!! Could not put it down!! Jan. 14 2014
By Barbara W. Burke - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Starting from the very first page, this book is incredible, with locking the reader at the very first page. The twists and turns just keep intriquing the reader all the way through. I thorougly enjoyed this book, and read it all in the same time frame, unusual for a book to keep me interested all the way through!! Cannot wait for John Howell's next book, looking forward to it .

HASH(0x9fb3bbd0) out of 5 stars Exciting thriller and terrific fun!! Jan. 25 2014
By Helen Kidston - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My GRL is a terrific thriller - exciting, with an engaging and very likeable protagonist (who has a wonderful dry, self deprecating humor that had me laughing out loud at times!), and full of twists and turns that keep you guessing and turning the pages to see what happens next. Throughout the action builds very well and is fast paced when needed and very believable. Every aspect is described so well you feel almost like you are watching a movie and indeed I believe this would translate very well to that sort of medium and be very successful in that form too.

The story commences with a lawyer going on a sabbatical, buying a boat and starting to enjoy a new way of life. Little does he know what these innocent and worthy pursuits are about to bring into his life! I won't give spoilers because a great deal of the pleasure of this book is having the story unfold, but suffice to say the hero finds himself with far more than he bargained for!

The author John W Howell has constructed his thriller very cleverly and created a truly pleasurable reading experience. I found myself suspecting just about everyone of something and being right only about half the time, which is probably in itself one of the marks of a very good thriller.

I do note there is a vague hint at the end of a possible sequel - if so I say bring it on! I'd love to read the next stage of this story! But if that's just wishful thinking on my part I certainly look forward to any other work from this engaging and talented thriller author.

HASH(0x9fb3c5a0) out of 5 stars I love a great intrigue book. MY GRL gets right into it from page one. Jan. 9 2014
By T. Daugherty - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wow what a creative way to suck the reader right into to character's predicament. From the very first chapter you are propelled into all of the mystery and action of this jaded lawyer turned coincidental adventurer. It's a fast read but the story pace keeps up. Mr Howell has started something here but where he will be going next is anybody's guess. Loved it!

HASH(0xa00247c8) out of 5 stars A 3.5 star one-of-a-kind thriller! March 20 2014
By K. Cross - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is definitely more of 3.5 stars, first of all. I think the best way to summarize this book is that I haven't read anything quite like it before!

Howell's take on the perspective (first person present) was so interesting that I wasn't sure if I was more fascinated with the story or the stream-of-consciousness approach to writing. Truly, it's a one-of-a-kind find, and not necessarily in a bad way.

The character had personality and spunk: I liked him. He had my loyalty from the beginning. Howell added some definitely unexpected twists and turns, which kept me on my toes and wondering what he'd change next. He had a forward momentum almost the whole time. In regards to the whole book, I can think of only one instance when it felt lagging and slow, and that was due to the descriptions/flow. Howell takes care to describe just about everything :)

What I struggled with was the stream of consciousness. Howell takes care to explain everything, and at points it became very cumbersome (as I mentioned above.) Sometimes I really liked it because it was funny. At other times I felt like he was over explaining things, like rationale behind why something was stated, or explaining something that was obvious to me as a reader. I'm not sure if it's a writing style, or if he just wants to make it overly clear what his intention was.

At any rate, I looked forward to reading this book, enjoyed it while I read it, and continue to look forward to more from Howell. I'll definitely read his books in the future.
