Vanish by Tom Pawlik


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.
