    3. As a young man, Colin Wyle is not particularly impressive The son of a former professional basketball player, Colin is cordial and likeable enough, but ultimately he s forgettable He, like many boys his age, spends most of his time daydreaming about the unattainable girl of his dreams, Natalie Merian, and the rest of his time trying to figure out a way to earn his father s respect Then one day while attending church with the family of one of his friends, Colin begins to hear a voice The disembod [...]


    4. I received a free paperback copy of this book in a giveaway.This was a hard book for me to rate, and I d probably settle on a 3.5 But I ll try to review it the best I can.Okay, so this book centers around Colin Wyle, and significant events in his life that occurred fifteen years ago The book shifts narratives between current day and the day that changed his life when he was a teenager This aspect is, I feel, done very well, and heightens the tension and suspense in both narratives.Fifteen years [...]

    9. When I saw a request by David Balzarini to review his new book Discretion, I jumped at it Not because I had read the premise of the story, but I just happened to be between books and something drew me to request to review How odd, considering this book is about forces beyond our control affecting our everyday life If there was a picture on since the dictionary isn t relevant any for conflicted it would be the cover of this book.I normally don t read first person stories as I find it difficult to [...]

    16.

    17. I was hard pressed on HOW I was going to review this book And even rating it I m borderline I gave it a 2, but I m stuck in between the 2 and 3 The 3 would be for I liked the writing and overall story But the author seemed to get a little lazy about half way through I m normally not a stickler for grammar and spelling errors I make many of my own LOL But, when a word is presented in a sentence to mean one thing and with the leaving off a letter, it can does change the meaning of the word It happ [...]


    18. This is the first time I am reviewing a debut novel at request of the author I really enjoyed being a part of that, so thank you David Balzarini Before I began I knew nothing about this book except for what I read in the synopsis I enjoy mystery thrillers so I was excited to read this book.I have to say first off that I completely bonded with the main character He was down to earth, slightly unsure of himself, good at heart, yet could be swayed into doing things that he knew he shouldn t I think [...]


    19.

I really don t know how to rate this book I think I really enjoyed about the first 70% I really felt it was leading up to a big BOOMat there was a mystery to be solved I even enjoyed the switching back and forth from present day to 15 yrs ago But then it got very confusing The mystery either wasn t ever there or I never got the answers I was looking for I guess I m still confused And the mysterious voicegood or evil I kind of think I may have gotten the message the author was trying to givebut a [...]


    21. I started reading this book and thought it was great I was excited, as it appeared to fall in one of my favorite categories of reading, and looked forward to the finish The writer has potential The book has potential That being said, in my honest opinion, for all the compelling points of the story, there were an equal number of confusing points The complications of tangled emotions toward the end with Natalie and Colin didn t seem to be firmly resolved The whole federal investigation left me wit [...]


    22. I received an arc of the book for free through First Reads.Before I started reading, I thought the synopsis of the book sounded really interesting.Unfortunately the first time Christel started talking which is only a few pages in my excitement slipped away a little This is because I m usually not a big fan of the paranormal However, as well as you can t judge a book by it s cover, I also thought it wouldn t be fair to judge it based on this occurrence The book starts with a certain event and aft [...]
