The Eighth Day Review

I started this book late at night, figuring I’d read a couple of chapters until I got tired, then finish it the next day. Well, things did not work out as planned. The Eighth Day hooked me immediately, and practically demanded I read it straight through. I ended up going to bed a couple of hours later than I intended that night.5 Star Rated The Eighth Day Review

Joseph John crafts a fantastic, fast-paced tale of science fiction and intrigue that is almost impossible to look away from. Set in the not-so-distant future, The Eighth Day gets under your skin because it is not hard to believe that something like this could actually happen. If it wasn’t for the fact that I was laying down while reading this, I have a feeling I would have been sitting on the edge of my seat. I found myself actually holding my breath during some of the action scenes. John’s descriptions place everything perfectly in your head. This is one of those books that reads like you’re watching a movie. You could ‘see’ it all unfolding and couldn’t wait to figure out where everything was heading.

A sci-fi thriller movie in book form, Joseph John’s The Eighth Day has everything a bookish adrenaline junkie needs to be satisfied. It’s the type of book where after you hit the last page, you close the book and blow out a deep breath because you feel like you’ve been right there with the main character, experiencing all he’s went through. Mystery, action, bad guys, betrayal and murder with an unexpected and yet satisfying end make this truly a must read. Great work!
