    Very entertaining read!

    Train Wreck's use of flashbacks and intertwining characters is reminiscent of the TV show Lost. The story is revealed slowly enough to be suspenseful, however the plot develops quickly enough to stay interesting. Bennett Gavrish's use of early 21st Century vernacular is unparalleled amongst modern writers. This use of language creates believable characters who feel and act real. This story will leave you guessing until the last page! Definitely a must read for any fan of Lost.

    A good read!

    This is a fascinating story that weaves it¿s way along the tracks to build to a twist at the end. The author did a great job of introducing the characters and the more I read the more I wanted to find out what would happen to them. There seems to be two stories happening due to flash backs, but it clearly develops into a very intriguing plot line revolving around this insurance company that bets on people¿s lives. I¿d definitely read another novel by Bennett Gavrish and think it would make a good read for a book club discussion group.

    Train Wreck is a wild ride.

    Train Wreck is a fantastic first novel. The author makes bold choices and the narritive demands the reader's attention. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. In the end we want more of this world.
