I thought the plot was interesting, and Lampros did an excellent job of switching between Charles' recollections of his past and the present; however, I had trouble connecting with Charles. There were times when Charles was reminiscing about his father and I felt like I could relate to him, but then the connection was interrupted by quotes from The Bible and the author never really shared with readers why those quotes were meaningful to Charles.
Throughout the book I felt like Charles was preparing himself and his friends for an imminent Judgement Day because he seemed so focused on sharing his faith with them. I thought that my interpretation was incorrect because I saw that an earlier edition of the book stated that it was the first part of a series, and I was surprised by the ending because there was an air of finality to it.
I think that Eleven Floors is best suited for people who have a little more understanding of Scripture than I do; perhaps it would be a good read for a youth group to take the time to discuss their interpretations of Scripture as they relate to the story.
Anyway, mystery aside, Eleven Floors is a nice, clean, good read. At only 64 pages, at least on my e-reader, this is the story of a young man's first year at college. He is Christian and doesn't try to hide it. He's open about his walk with God, praying publicly and in social situations.
We see his growth in a greater society by way of his college life. Thankfully, and somewhat surprisingly in this day and age, he maintains his Christian walk while making friends. That's all the spoiler you get from me, but I will say this, the story is in his interactions with other characters.
At 64 pages there is obviously not a lot of character development, but there is enough for us to clearly see what's going on. The ending caught me off-guard, yeah, it's a cliff hanger (the title says volume 1 after all), and I don't like those, we will have to see if it was necessary in volume 2.
I really enjoyed this quick, wholesome read. There is nothing here to find offensive or off-putting (unless maybe you're an atheist or some other non-christian. If that is the case don't read this book, you won't get it). I don't usually tell anyone to not read a book, but there you have it. This is a Christian book and a good one at that. I just don't want to give the idea it's anything else.
With Eleven Floors (Volume 1), Robert Lampros has written for us a good, wholesome and uplifting short read. Enjoy!
This author is a natural storyteller, and I am sure you will enjoy this story and you will be entertained for a couple of hours. Unfortunately this story is short, but hopefully it will continue soon, as it is advertise as being volume one (or part one) of a series. That is good, because the end of the story left some question marks on my mind, like "What is really going on here?".
Overall, I recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers that appreciate a well written book, that boosts our faith, showing the importance of praying as lifestyle.
The author sent me an electronic version of his book and did not request for a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
All I can really say is HOLY SMOKES!!! I absolutely loved this book! I was able to relate on more levels than one. The book had be emotionally connected! It was hard for me to place down because I found myself so drawn in!
