The review --
The thing I liked about the beginning of the story was the short blurb before the prologue. It quickly brought the reader up to speed on the story. After reading another book of his, this book didn't disappoint me. This author demonstrates such a strong understanding of words and phrases that mold together to form outstanding imagery. He sucked me into the story after the first paragraph and I really enjoyed the book.
The pace of the book was outstanding. It held my attention and flew by quickly. My mind didn't drift or stall at any point. Mr. Taxi was a movie set to words. It's the highest praise that I can give a book.
The characters were well developed and couched in very descriptive language. If the character appears more than once, the author develops him for the reader. It's a very strong characteristic of this writer. The reader can tell he's done this before.
The setting of the book is deep space and a young man working as a space driver. It's in the science fiction genre but there's plenty of adventure and mystery to hold your attention. The ending comes quickly and very satisfying. I'll not spoil it for you, but I encourage you to get the book. It's well worth the price and the read. Enjoy!!!
