I am prejudiced. There, I said it. Never thought I was until I got this book, Falls Like Lightning, to review. How can you be prejudiced against a book? It wasn't the book, it was the author, Shawn Grady. He's a man, a fact which he can't help. I have always overlooked books written by men as I thought, "How could a man write a book to resonate with a woman"? I know, I know. You've got Nicholas Sparks, Charles Martin, and so on, but I really had a prejudice against them.
I begrudgingly started reading this book and guess what? The man can actually write. And I liked it, really liked it. The characters were real, even the woman. It was thrilling, you could tell he came from a background of firefighting. I can say, in all honesty, I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good, fast-paced read. Even if it's written by a man!
