    Couldn't Put it Down!

    I just read Broken in one sitting. The writing and development of the main character keep you turning the pages. As I learned about him, I recognized so many of those character traits in myself.It provoked deep thought about the character and how I could easily identify with him and his lifestyle. I could feel his emotions and his pain and just wanted to keep reading to find out how his character changes and to think about the lesson to be learned here. Written in an unusual style, this book keeps you riveted, however, it is not a crime or a mystery as defined by genre. It's more a study of a human being's weaknesses and what it takes to overcome a self-help/psycholodgical theme. I highly recommend this book to someone looking for a different type of read that engages you to be introspective!

    Wonderful & Unique!

    Only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is for the 1st chapter, it started slow- but then hold on! Totally unique story style- Loved it! Author & lead character story..... then lead charater story....... translated from another language into English... This author is wonderful! She usues her own life- puts it into her story - makes you think about your own life & ideas on it........ You care about the few people & want it all to be okay... in the end, is it really?? GREAT BOOK! Not a big book- Big Thoughts though! BRAVO! Maybe I should give it 5 stars........ Enjoy!

    Broken by Karin Fossum

    I have enjoyed several books by Karin Fossum. My favorite is "The Indian Bride. Broken was so boring.

    If you like a book with a plot that SLOWLY develops, then this is the book for you. It is big on character development and small on plot. You can actually feel the anxiety that the main character is experiencing when his orderly life becomes unraveled. You just want to shake him into action but this is his story and must unfold at his own pace.
