Now that I finished reading the book Black Coke, I have a couple of finite touches upon the subject. While I wrote over a million words to describe how good the writing is, I think there are a couple of finite touches that may have been overlooked while I was writing. The first starts off with the need to address the concerns with the book’s length. Normally, a book of 500+ pages are not something I would typically read and praise; there were some parts where I think could have been shortened a little that may not necessarily remove the novel’s effect. If the book was not fast paced, I am quite certain the book would have been quite a drag.

Second, I want to make mention of the fact that there were some techniques in the novel that I would normally dock individuals on because of its intended effects. For instances, much of the action scenes had very short sentences and endings for the novel. Certainly, I would not easily let individuals get away with that unless I knew what the intentions were. Since this novel is a natural thriller, I am quite certain that these styles are done so to give off a deliberate ‘intensity’ effect for the reader (which is something I experienced).

Apart I found some scenes with sexual innuendo, high profanity, and (just one perhaps) spelling error, I think the book is an excellent work. Even though I am a Christian, I would not be the one who would not expectant to find a thriller with these elements. Personally, I think this would be another book to movie novel that is worth a second glance/read. I also managed to find a copy of the author’s second novel, “The Somali Doctrine.”

I hope to find more authors like his to be out there.
