I have a large old Gray’s Anatomy that I love. While being helpful when I was doing my masters it is just beautiful. The illustrations of the muscle layers and the colorful veins. I personally believe that they are a work of art. So much time and skill went into the plates. It is still one of the books that I am truly proud of owning… I follow a lot of publishers and authors on twitter and I had seen Siphon by A.A. Medina a number of times and the cover is stunning. It was calling me. I was truly thrilled and excited when Mr. Medina contacted me and offered me a review copy.
Summary: Gary is a Dr. with a fixation on his co-worker. Things really go sideways after an accident in the lab.
What I liked: The pacing was perfect. The more manic Gary became in the story the faster the pace. It was sooo sooo good. Medina’s has a strong writing voice which allows the reader to become submerged in the story almost immediately. Medina’s skillfully created characters which read three dimensional and are well written. The reader truly understands the full force of Gary’s obsession. Just when you think that Medina is winding the story down he hits you with an ending that you didn’t see coming. That ending tho!!! Completely took me by surprise. Siphon hit all the right notes for me.
What I didn’t like: There wasn’t anything I didn’t like in this book.
Star Rating: 5
My thoughts: I am really looking forward to reading more from Medina. The story was fresh and I had no idea where the story was going to take me and I loved that. The cover is just stunning and fits the story so well. Your feelings toward the main character change throughout the story. It is a manic and fun ride that I personally am seriously glad I took.
***BIG thanks to A.A. Medina for sending me a copy for my honest review***
