This is a review of A THOUSAND BAYONETS on Goodreads.com. Enjoy!
A Thousand Bayonets is most certainly a mystery novel. Before I read the publication, my interests were consistently convergent to a handful of topics, you know, teenage stuff, more or less. I decided to try my luck on the giveaway sponsored by publishers and distributed by Goodreads and thought the book looked fairly interesting enough, despite being a departure from normalcy.
To my surprise, I won and after the first chapter, I was hooked. As clichéd as my scenario sounded, the feeling was genuine and I cannot think of another way to put it. Mr. Harris’s storytelling was kinetic and quite fluid, so I naturally found myself submerged in the plotline. Though the characters came at me, thick and fast, I somehow found myself keeping track of them all (With the exception of two particulars) without even referring to the previous chapters for a cheat-sheet.
If not for that irksome fact that humans do tire eventually during the morning cycles of another day, I would’ve finished it in one day. I look forward to future novels written by Mr. Harris, for he seems like a promising new writer in the field where writers do grow stale.
