Review of “Nikki Magee” by Peter Wendt
- Published: 07/04/2015
From time to time I'll be posting reviews of books I've read by indie authors. Not all books will be romances, but they all will be worth reading. Here is the first review, "Nikki Magee" by Peter Wendt. It's available on amazon as a kindle book for just $1.99.
You know that feeling you have when you hear someone with a British accent, or someone speaking English with a French accent? The feeling that you could listen to them all day because they sound so "cool"? That’s how I felt about the narration in this book. At first I thought the writing was going to be too simple, but then I was swept away by the voice. The author’s technique is both sparse and powerful. It’s an unusual coming of age story with a loveable main character, whose tale of survival is touching and inspiring. It’s great to watch Nikki as she comes out of her shell, and like me I’m sure you’ll be rooting for her all the way. I wish the book ended better…not storywise by technically. Perhaps this was done on purpose to leave the story open for a sequel. I don’t know if this book was written for adults or if it’s YA fiction, but I know it would be enjoyed by both audiences. If anyone is on the fence about buying this book…go for it! You won’t be disappointed.
