Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this book in it's condensed format, but enjoyed it so much, I sought out the full, unedited version at my local library. Skyscraper is so well written, so vivid, that I can see it being made into an exellent movie with a huge special effects budget. The lead villian in this book was so well done, a person could'nt help but REALLY hate him. All the characters were very believable, and at various points in the story, you actually get inside thier heads, and see what they are thinking, which makes them seem so much more real. As the tension mounts, you can almost taste it, and the climax is truly an awesome thing. I found the book a very difficult thing to put down, and enjoyed every last page. As I said before, This book has all the ingredients needed to make one incredible motion picture.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David L. Baker on February 28, 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A daringly austere office building towers above the teeming streets of Manhattan. Shortly after it opens, a woman dies from a glass pane hurtling down from the upper stories, and an office executive is killed when his floor's windows blow out, leaving him hanging from a precarious ledge until his heart fails. An engineer is hired to discern the building's flaws, as lawsuits mount against the nefarious owner. Suddenly, the engineer comes to a ghastly conclusion.....! A well written, taut drama which blends non-fiction events with an array of colorful fictional characters, and tension-filled plot elements. A real page-turner!
