I haven’t done many reviews and would like to do more. Actually, I would like to become better at giving reviews. I suppose I could start by telling you, the reader of my review, what I liked about the book I’m turning in a review on. So, here we go.
Burn Baby Burn was the first ebook and independent author that I have read. Two milestones there. The third was that I bought it for 99 cents. Who ever heard of purchasing a new novel for 99 cents. I remember hoping that I wasn’t getting what I paid for.
It is not long after you begin the story that you begin to see characters develop. Jake Barton has a way of writing so that you are not merely focusing on the one main character in the story, but you are finding something in all the characters that you can associate with. That also goes to say that he did a terrific job of making me see the characters. I think that if Jake Barton were offered a movie deal with Burn Baby Burn, Jude Law would play a good Dexter.
At the beginning of the story, Jake Barton went full throttle with his Suspense/Thriller. The writing was smooth and he was good with the twists and the turns that the story took. There were a couple of times when I thought I knew what was going to happen, but then, like a roller coaster ride I was once on, the track I thought we were on went that way and the car went in a totally different direction. I wrapped my arms tight around the bars that held me in my seat. Having said that, the end of the story was good and had one of those turns in it.
I began reading the story on a Kindle App for the Android phone and ended up finishing it on a Kindle that was given to me as a gift. I enjoy reading on my Kindle and I’m looking forward to reading another on it by Jake Barton.
