5.0 out of 5 stars Well thought-out and hard to put down December 11, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the product description and customer reviews, I decided to give The Talent a go.

It was a difficult book to put down; the plot moved fluidly but kept the story-line just out of arm's reach. The main character, like ourselves, has talents and flaws that allows the reader to engross themselves into the book with a connection.

Without hesitation I would recommend this book to a friend, and I would recommend that the author writes another novel soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars heart pumping - tension edged December 12, 2011
Format:Paperback
i read this book in its rough draft and was impressed enough to anticipate its full final release. i was not disappointed!
there's enough background to the main character that you can begin to identify with him. i didn't just read the story, i was IN the story!
feel the sweat trickle down the side of your face? realize as you finish a 'chapter' that its ONLY a story and that you've not blinked for 20 minutes, and are thirsty as hell? that takes TALENT - and this book is loaded with it.
you want action? got it! suspense? yep! is this one of those 'can't stop reading'? uh-huh ~ oh and when WILL the sequel be done? Gimme more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable January 27, 2013
By NYHoya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pros:The plot line is interesting and characters consistent through the story.

Cons:Characters flat/not developed fully;the dialogue is inauthentic.

Action tale that is worth reading but I expect the next book by Boembeke will polish these areas and be a big hit

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Talent" - Great Debut! February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gabriel's special talent is that he kills with ease. His life becomes a nightmare after a particular assassination b/c the people that hired him are trying dispose of him. Must agree with all of the other reviewers, fast-moving and exhilarating novel. Hope a sequel is in the works!

3.0 out of 5 stars An Okay Shoot'em Up February 22, 2013
By rcdac
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot was plausible but the ending left a lot to be desired. The characters were affable but two-dimensional at best. If you're looking for a fast paced shoot'em up then I would recommend,"The Talent." If you want something more then you're probably going to be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Talent
The Talent starts out slow and builds up a head of steam. Making bad guys likable is a tough assignment especially with hit men and numbers like 45 and 60. Read more
