A book to read for the summer

I recommend the book Blank Spaces.  It has drama, suspense, mystery, comedy and romance.  It is a crime story of sorts because it also has kidnapping and murder.  The ending is not what you will expect and there is different twists through the book.

Re: A book to read for the summer

All reviews I have received about Blank Spaces has been good.  One person was surprised by the ending.  There are a couple of twists in the story.  Another person told me she thought the story was really good.  All I can say is that it is worth reading.  I just have convince everyone that this is true.

Re: A book to read for the summer

A person who doesn't read much said that the book was awesome.  She read it in three days.  She would have finished it sooner but she had to work.  It was the first time she read a book that she didn't want to put down.

Re: A book to read for the summer

It seems that people are having problems putting Blank Spaces down.  They get so involved that they read to the early hours of the day.  Even people who are not readers became engrossed in the story.  I would say that that means that this book is worth a try.

Re: A book to read for the summer

I hate to admit it but there are a few editing errors in the original copies of the book.  Corrections were made but I have been told that the original could be worth more money.  I personally think that finding the errors is a challenge.  But there will only be so many that have the errors.  The next printing will be the corrected version.  So you have a choice, order now and get the original or wait and get the corrected version.  It's up to you, the reader.  Either way the story is still a good one, no one seems to see the twist coming.
