Please Note: the author contacted me about the sale price on this book in exchange for an honest review.
Warning: this book contains material meant for mature/adult readers only.
A group of school kids are captured on a trip to South America by a rough group of degenerates lead by the self appointed and delusional Craig Hooks... Lieutenant Hooks as he refers to himself. It quickly becomes obvious that the children are being held for something much more sinister than ransom. But little did this group of psychos realize, they'd bitten off more than they could chew when they tried to intimidate one of the girls, Brooke Kylee.
Some thoughts on "Village Americana"...
1.) the story was well written and edited with few, if any grammatical errors.
2.) described as a 'survival thriller' would be an accurate statement. With the emphasis on sensationalism rather that reality. One might compare it to a variation of the Hunger Games theme where the heroines' every move might be her last, yet she somehow manages to last through one life and death situation after another.
3.) WARNING...several encounters that are extremely violent and graphically described. Many involving the captured children.
A jungle survival story featuring a teenage girl against a group of mind-numbing thugs. Her tale has no resemblance to a realistic situation and became even less so as the story progressed... BUT it is an entertaining and gut wrenching read. You just have to have the stomach for some of what goes on here. Definitely not for the squeamish.
Although this tale was way over the top, the author has shown some skill with the use of prose and has some story-telling abilites.
As it is... 3 1/2 Stars.
Village Americana brings you on a rollercoaster of a ride full of action, suspense and drama, exactly my kind of book.I don't want to mention too much incase I spoil the story as it is a novella.
The storyline is original and it will definitely hook you in from the first sentence. The writing is clear and effective with developed characters that I feel all have a backstory to tell and hopefully their stories will be told. I love that Brooke is a fiesty, sassy female which can be rare in a book.
My only criticism is is that it's too short I know it's a novella but I think that there is plenty of scope for it to be extended.( second hint :-) )
This book is definitely a five star read!
I Travel all over the world into third world countries like the one he is describing, and the sad reality is this kinds thing could happen to any group. Still, I would like to see what Scarlato comes up with next. I l talent like this on Kindle.
