Intriguing and Original
on November 12, 2012
To begin with, "Human Resources" is a brilliant title. I won't tell you why -- I will leave it to you to find out as you become engrossed in this page-turner with a rather unusual plot.
I had been eagerly awaiting Mr. Neil's second book, and it was worth the wait. He writes so fluidly and draws such distinct and clear characters. He is a master of unusual plots and has the easy writing style that immerses the reader in the story - of course, you can't put the book down.
I am certain we are experiencing an emerging young author whose name will be with us for years to come as he turns out one intriguing thriller after another. His creative plots are astonishing. One wonders where they come from. And, if, indeed, the situation described in this book exists, Mr. Neil has a done a great job of drawing attention to it.
In his previous book, he made the reader think deeply about the homeless and made us examine out own attitudes and actions in dealing with that issue. Here, he draws a scenario that is difficult to believe exists. But, in these times, when so many will go to such great lengths for new and exotic experiences, one never knows. He has, again, created an engrossing story and has asked us once more to examine our own values.
