    "Exoskeleton - now I get it"

    Very compelling, with scenes of cringe-inducing torture. I found myself saying "oh...oh..oh no...oh no..." a lot! This isn't about gratuitous violence - the torture scenes serve to make you understand how truly awful and hopeless the character's situation is, and also to bring about the interesting twist that I didn't see coming. The ending was somewhat abrupt, but I didn't feel like there were loose ends. Definitely recommended.

    "The best book I have read in a very long time"
    What did you love best about Exoskeleton: A Novel?

    I go through 3 - 4 books a month and I have never written a review until I finished reading Exoskeleton. It gripped me from the very start and I was hooked until the end. Note to author: Please hurry up and write more books!

    Story
    "An Excellent Novel"
    Where does Exoskeleton: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely one of the better ones I've read recently. Great writing style, compelling story and original plot elements that keep you guessing. The story keeps it's secrets until the climax, and while it has good detail and thought provoking sections, it never lets them get too technical or too esoteric.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrative structure is definitely the strongest part. He cuts around to various characters and scenes, stays with them long enough to convey the meaning of the scene and moves on to the next. The resulting narrative flow is excellent, it never drags and results in a real page turner. He avoids the pitfalls of this type of writing by focusing on a core cast of characters and never padding it out with throw away characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book clearly leaves some questions unanswered and there are definitely hooks for a follow-up if the author plans to write one. So if you are the type of person who wants every last detail explained, you may be disappointed.

    "Not what I expected"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a very interesting, and well-written book. First time in a long time that I had to skip ahead at some parts (the dentist scene had me cringing like nothing I've ever read before! - pure genius!). I really felt for the main character but was skeptical of him as well. His character was written in a way that made you question his innocence. It took quite a few chapters into the story before I realized that he was indeed guilty?/innocent? (I won't spoil it for you!) I would actually really like a sequel to this book. It ended in such a way that I would love to know what this character does next.
