    Loved It!

    This book grabbed my attention from the first paragraph and never let go. The plot was something you might expect from Stephen King or Dean Koontz. But the writing style was absolutely unique. Daniel Morris has a captivating way with words, an ability to describe something so that you can feel, hear, smell, and taste it as you read. Morris has a rare, natural talent with words. I would give him 5 stars based on that alone.

    The Canal is not a long book more like a novella. It's fast-paced, with a mix of science fiction, horror, suspense and mystery. Whatever you may feel about this book, I strongly doubt it will be boredom!
