My First Book Review
Offworld by Robin Parrish
“Christopher Burke and his crew of NASA astronauts are the first human beings to walk on the surface of Mars. Their return to Earth is supposed to be a momentous day. But a surprise waits for them that's beyond imagining: every man, woman, and child on Earth is gone. Vanished.
It’s not a dream. It’s not a trick. It’s real.
Burke and his crew have been through a lot together. But nothing can prepare them for what they’ll find when they discover the extraordinary secret behind the disappearance of mankind.”
This is an excellent book. It caught my imagination on the first page and held me captive until the very last page. Usually I don’t read this type of book, but I totally loved it. When I first read the above description, I was intrigued and since I love anything to do with Space, I decided to read the book. The characters are very interesting and the storyline is very exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. It seemed there was always something unexpected and exciting happening and I couldn’t help getting really involved in it. I so wanted to go to the last page to find out what was going on, but I’m so glad I didn’t. Up until the very end, I could never figure out what the outcome would be. I really don’t want to give away any of the plot, so I won’t say more but I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries and sci-fi books. As I said before, this is not my normal genre of book, but I totally loved it!
In fact, I would love to see this book made into a movie. In my opinion, Robin Parrish is an excellent author.
