    Excellent thriller

    I just finished IMPROBABLE and it was one of the best books I've ever read by a new author. Heard about this book in USA Today and went right out to get it. Great job with characters, settings and storyline. Had me hooked within the first few pages. A must, must read. Keep up th great work Adam. Look forward to your next book, especially if we visit the everywhen again.

    When I started reading IMPROBABLE, I had no idea where it was going or whether or not I would even continue reading as it definitely was not my type of book.....or so I thought. Adam Fawer has created such amazing characters that suddenly became very real to me, maybe because of their faults....maybe because they 'spoke' out to me....maybe because of the talented writing....whatever the reason I found that I became so involved in their lives that could not stop reading. Page after page, like an onion with its layers, the plot started to reveal itself to me......or did it? David Caine's life wasn't the only one spinning out of control....mine was too since all else fell by the wayside as I kept reading ...and finally I forced myself to slow down, savor each and every word until the very end....and WOW!!!! what an ending!!! This phenomenal writer actuallly knew how to end this exceedingly complex book....!!!! So many times you'll be reading a really terrific book, you get to the end and it just folds flat....right????? Welll this one didn't at allll.....!!!! I wanted to go back to the beginning and read it all over again and that rarely ever happens with me!!!! What a completely totally original novel....what a fantabulous debut!!! I am so glad to hear that the publishers are going all out on the marketing thereby giving Adam Fawer the respect that he so richly deserves. Thanks for many hours of pure reading pleasure!!! Now hurry up with the next brilliant novel!!!

    THE BEST BOOK OF 2005 (and probably '06, '07, etc...)

    As the greatest bookseller in the great southwest (this can't be don't, I am always looking for the next big book to handsell and more importantly, to tell my staff about because everyone at work is always waiting to see what I recommend next. I never let them down and I'm sure IMPROBABLE will not let them down either. Adam Fawer has written one of the most intelligent and original thrillers I've ever read. IMPROBABLE is a smart, multi-layered novel, full of fascinating characters. I hope we see these characters again and I hope we see another book by Fawer SOON. My job allows me to get some really great books before anyone else and I am grateful for that. Word-of-mouth is one of the most important things in this business, and I think that IMPROBABLE should generate some excellent word-of-mouth. I think if enough people get behind this wonderful novel, IMPROBABLE WILL be the book of 2005! I will do what I can to ensure this happens. I hope Adam Fawer writes quickly and Adam, I'll see you on the bestseller lists. Congratulations on a perfect book. To sum up. . . Improbable is GENIUS and you need to stop reading this and go buy a copy and see for yourself. What are you waiting for? GO!
