I have so enjoyed all books this man has written. He makes you feel what is happening and keeps you interested from the first paragraph. I will be watching for anything he writes in the future. He brings the characters to life. You see them and watch their lives progress in every word.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just finished reading "Fifty Years to Midnight" by Tom Lewis and had tears in my eyes at the end. In my opinion, it is the most powerful book he has written to date. The story is so believable and so well-craafted, I just marvel at his writing ability. His characterizations are so accurate, I'd recognize those people anywhere. The dialogue of the characters is like real conversations--not contrived and his excellent research shines through. Mr. Lewis has told a great story with economy of words without sacrificing any of the ambience and nuance that give the raw story "flesh and blood". I'm sure when I read it again (and I WILL), I will glean even more of the subtleties. Some writers put lots of words o a page and have lots of pages that don't tell half as good a story as he has done. It is simply a wonderful book. I've read many books by many different authors and all types of genres and I rank Tom Lewis's books with some of the very best.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
