Holding your breath in anticipation amazing!!
on April 14, 2012
First off, let me just be clear on one point so you know how much praise I hold for Tallulah Grace's "The Littles". I am not into thriller's, suspence, horror, etc. themed books. Even if its romanced up. But!!! And that's a huge but, I know amazing authors and Tallulah is one of them. This book held me captive from the moment I downloaded it right up until I finished it. If you know your romance authors, you will know who Julie Garwood is. I checked out a book of hers that was a suspence romance by mistake and decided to read it out of boredom. I fell inlove and read every book in that story line because of how captivating the story was. The Littles had the same effect on me.
Let me explain why suspence/thriller books holds no interest to me except in extremely rare cases. I hate the typical story lines that drag out and predictable behaviors from the characters. Those actions that make you want to scream "WHY DIDNT YOU LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAID, YOU MORON?" Or make just frustrated that you lost time reading a book that you knew what was going to happen after the first couple paraghraphs. With The Littles, I was completely engrossed in the whole plot. Heck, I continued reading every page while cooking dinner and during work!!! :)
The characters came to life in my mind. While reading I felt like I was right there living the nightmares, feeling the pain of the children, wanting to jump in the story and exact my own personal revenge on the psycho! Admittedly I did almost stop reading because one of the victoms have my own sons name. As a mother, I couldn't help but picture my sons face. But I read on. This is a great book that I highly recommend everyone read. I also suggest buying and downloading the Timeless Trilogy. That way you can get to know Jeri before this story began. Also go to [....] first and read the short about Kelly. I am telling you all, Tallulah is is on a fast track to being amongst the best authors out there! Nora Roberts watch out now!!
