I just got done reading Vanish by Tom Pawlik. The book length was 5,765 locations (apx. 256 character = 1 location).
Overall, the book was a fast read. It took me about a day and a half reading off and on to finish. I would classify the genre as Christian Fiction and actiony (not like Ted Deker though). I enjoyed the book up to chapter 46 (location 4,300). At this point, the book took a turn. I’ll try not to give away any secrets/spoilers, but the main character was faced witha crisis of belief in what I took to be a distinctly Catholic Purgatory -like way.
In general, as long as someone takes the book for what it is–a work of fiction and not anything else–it would make for a good read (especially for free). There was no sex. I don’t remember any cussing. There was some violence and gunplay.
[Update 01-07-2010 19:56:02] I’m still getting used to writing these reviews. I guess I should tell you something about the book. The main characters in the book all expereince a storm one day. They wake up to find everyone has disappeared. Where did everyone go? Why did they vanish? What are these strange shadow-like creatures? As they meet each other, why do they disapear? Where do they go? How do they escape?
