What a Wonderful Read!,
This review is from: The Heir (Paperback)The Heir was a truly wonderful read. I found the characters to be quite compelling, and I loved the way Binger Ray incorporated the idiosyncrasies and nuances of the Southern language.
Binger Ray is really a great narrative writer as well. I found myself getting lost in the pages, and before I knew it, I was already halfway through the book!
A lot of the books I read today are just not compelling, and it's hard to identify with characters that you don't sympathize with. That wasn't the case with The Heir. After just a few chapters I found myself empathizing with the characters' past, as well as caring what happened to them in the future.
Possible *Spoiler Alert!*
I especially liked the character of Brody. He was a straight-talker, and each page with him was like a seeing an old friend. And I can't imagine a reader who won't feel for Jeff and the losses he's been forced to endure. The back-story about his son Brian, and the terrible tragedy that befell him at the hands of his mother Lisa, will have you turning the pages one after the other.
The book's only 200 pages, but it doesn't need to be any longer, although by the time you reach the exciting climax and conclusion, you might wish it was. Binger Ray doesn't waste words, and he doesn't need to; the story is told without a lot of needless flourishes and fluff that is so common in other writers' work today.
If you're looking for a great read for your Kindle, make sure you put Binger Ray's The Heir at the top of your list!
