  • I’ve perused the majority of Neil’s books except of “The Masked Rider” (it’s on my rundown), and every one of them has been great. Be that as it may, this most recent book just appeared to need something. It was agreeable, however not incredible.
  • I think the part of the issue is that he used to not have photographs in his books, so he worked indeed difficult to portray the view with words. I feel like he utilized the photographs as a support on this one. Only left me feeling like there could have been something more. Ideally, he will continue composing since he won’t visit anymore and will have additional time staring him in the face.
