Now, he must gather all of the pieces to the unraveling puzzle that is his life, discover the truth about his past, and save his brothers. All five of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tired of cliffhangers February 22, 2012
By G. Cox
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm really getting tired of cliffhangers where a book just stops, probably where the author is hoping we'll get hooked and absolutely *have* to read the next book. But let's face it, it takes so darned long to write a book, that most people just can't sustain interest that long even if the hook actually works. More often, it just makes readers angry that the writer didn't honor the expectation that readers want to feel some level of satisfaction when they finish a book.

If this book had stood on its own, I would have given this book 4 stars because the writing is enjoyable, the story is interesting, the pacing is great, and I even liked the characters. Except for the glaring problem of the ending, the only annoyances were some typos that cry out for a proofreader. But I am so very tired of being left feeling like the fun just got started when there are only a few pages left in the book.

I was really disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars To Be Continued December 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for three reasons. First, it was a good value. Second, the book description piqued my interest. Third, the reviews posted on Amazon were good. What I didn't notice initially, although I should have because it was clearly stated in the title, is that this book is the first book in a trilogy. Here lies my biggest rub with this book. It does not stand alone.

Should all books in a series stand alone? In my opinion they should. While some elements of the story and characters can carry over to subsequent books in a series there should be some element of the plot or characters resolved in each book. For example, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was a good read and while I was anxious to read the next book because I liked the characters so much there was a complete novel in the first book. The Hunger Games books are another example of a series where there was a plot resolution in each book of the series. One of my favorite author's, Greg Iles, has several books linked by common characters or themes that are good reads even without reading them in sequence. In my opinion Multiples Of Six is not really a series but a single work that it is being published in three books. From all the glowing reviews I have seen for Multiples Of Six I must be alone in my need for some conflict resolution in a book.

I do have praise for the book. The action is fast paced and engaging. I liked the character development of the pursued multiples and their interaction was believable and engaging. I did not lose interest and felt drawn into the story. It was somewhat frustrating that the story took so long to develop and as soon as some important information was revealed the book ended. And I do mean ended....with a surprise.

I can't say definitively that I will purchase the next book in the series. While I am interested in learning the fate of some of the characters, I feel more coerced into following the characters than invited.

Downloaded "Multiples of Six" when it was available for free, intrigued by description and lured by favorable reviews. That said, I made it 5% into the book before deciding to put it away. I don't necessarily think it's a bad story (the favorable reviews seem to indicate otherwise) but it's too poorly written for me to continue reading. Example: "He ran his hand along the wood at the end of the worn handrail. It was worn." I could easily pull similar constructions off every Kindle page. Dialogue was artificial, encountered one sudden shift of perspective between paragraphs and decided I was done.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Engrossing Story October 3, 2011
I really enjoyed this book. The pacing was nice and the story sucked me in from the very start. It was a little jumpy but perhaps necessarily so in order to bring together the different characters. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because some of the descriptions were a bit overly familiar, as if I had read them before in other books. Also, I would like to see the supporting characters fleshed out a little more in the second book. Which of course I can't wait to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read. November 11, 2013
Multiples of Six was a very entertaining read to say the least. I was able to hear the voice of each character as I read, which is rare to find. Rane was able to take a character and place him/her in a world that only that character would fit in. I also liked the comedy in the book which broke the seriousness of the mystery. This book had great pacing and left the reader wanting to know more, which will continue on into the the next book!

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good mystery.

I'm very much looking forward to the sequel which should be released once Mr. Rane has finished all of his fact-checking.

On the first page it starts with foul language and I am sure it continues. I won't read it, even for free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multiples of Six November 1, 2011
By Scooby2
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this story was well written and had an excellent plot. If you like mystery, suspense and the unknown, this story is for you. Although, this story leaves you hanging at the end of it, I can't wait to start the second chapter when it's finished. I look forward to seeing what happens with Nicole and the brothers James, Kevin and Douglas. I highly recommend this to others to read who like a good mystery, it will not disappoint.

More About the Author

Raised in the wilds of northwestern NJ, Andy Rane admittedly led a bit of a sheltered life. Books and a vivid imagination were a large part of his childhood. After an ill-fated and thankfully brief college career as a Chemistry student, he discovered a love of writing. He studied Literature and Creative Writing at The Richard Stockton College of NJ, where he first got the idea for Multiples of Six.

He now lives in the not-so-wilds of NJ, with his wife, son, three cats, two chinchillas, a salamander named Fred, and an ever-changing number of fish that may...just may...have cannibalistic tendencies. He looks forward to telling stories that people like to read.
