About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Character interaction is uniquely developed throughout the book. In many novels, even long ones, the characters come together and seem to bond instantly into their final relationship. In Martin Truemartin, the major characters meet, then go their own ways for some time, then meet again, then part, then are thrown together again by circumstances and undertake some shared activity that deepens their relationship. This is the way things happen in real life. Sometimes we may not see a new acquaintance for a week or a month, but eventually we come to be friends and spend most of our time together. I'm not sure if the author did this by design or unconsciously, but I have the sense that it's due to his natural storytelling ability.
There are many more positives that could be described about this book, but suffice it to say that Martin Truemartin always comes down to the author's love of language and the his successful achievement of a grand plot design. The language makes the book a delight to be read aloud (as to a child), and the characters and events as they develop are compelling and encourage the turning of the next page, and the reading of each new chapter.
