Dec 27, 2012I approached this book with a little trepidation as I had read a review likening it to a Dan Brown novel, and I thought, oh no, not another copycat "religious relic conspiracy" novel, but Hook took me by surprise. Told from the varying viewpoints of the main protagonists in the story, this is a complex tale involving reincarnation, an abduction of a scientist, a romance, the imminent destruction of the earth and the creation of a possible saviour, however surprisingly it was an enjoyably easy read. Tsamis has created an original story that generally moves at a fair pace, though he does tend to get a little didactic at times (we could have done without a few of the mini history lessons, like the history of Google for example, as they did slow the plot down) I genuinely cared about the characters, and was particularly intrigued by Hanks, wondering who he was and how he was going to fit into the story. My biggest criticism of Hook was that it all ended quite suddenly, I was... More > ready for at least another hour's reading before the resolution, only to see I had another 20 or so pages to go and couldn't imagine how Tsamis could finish the story in so few pages. This story also lacks the large body count you often get in thrillers these days, so I suspect that Tsamis likes his characters a little too well to go bumping them off to progress the plot ! Despite the thought provoking subject matter, this is a great Summer holiday read and one I'd recommend. A disclosure: Nicolas Tsamis sent me a copy of Hook to read and asked if I would review it. This is my unbiased and honest assessment.< Less
Dec 19, 2012I love a book that leaves you living in the author's dreamscape for days to come, and Hook did just that for me. A wonderfully written, exciting debut novel for Nicolas. I don't like to write spoilers and give too much away in a review, so trust me when I say if you want a refreshing, fantasy, mixed with a little realism, mystery, love and humour, you will adore Hook.
Dec 16, 2012Who does making the world a better place, much less saving all of humanity, not concern? The plot of "Hook" attempts just that with a mix of spirituality, intellect and humor in its arsenal. The fact that it is Nicolas Tsamis' first attempt at writing a novel, and not even his day job at that, is a nobel enough effort by any stretch of the imagination...and stretch the imagination it does with the self-titled talking parrot as one of its main protagonists and conspirators. Overall it is a nimble, relevant and engaging read from start to finish which you wish it never would. Fortunately, I am told, there is a sequel...
Aug 10, 2012What a great read. Optimistic with a great deal of humour.When I finished reading the book I had a smile on my face and wanted more.
Aug 8, 2012Thoroughly impressive. What seems to start out as an innocent love story turns into a plot to save the WORLD! The best I have read in a long time!
