There is no secret ingredient to build an outstanding novel. All it takes is a gripping plot, compelling characters, a fascinating setting, a solid narrative voice, flowing dialogue, and the perfect combination of humor, drama, emotion, passion, and surprise. All that plus a whole lot of talent. Gravity has in all. Gravity will definitely take your breath away. Trust me on that one. It is one of those novels that remind you of why getting completely engrossed in a story is one of the greatest pleasures in life.
