    "This is one of the best books of all time, let alone an escapist's novel. It doesn't get any closer to escapism with the destruction of the entire world, and there's fanciful characters and strange plot connecting all the dots. It's one of the most well written science fiction novels of all time and an escapist's dream for getting immersed in."

    "Papillon (P.S.) is about the author's attempts to break out of numerous prisons. It has been turned into a movie so perhaps you have seen that. Either way, it's a great read and before him no one had ever escaped the Papillon before! That's amazing to me!"

    ""The Pull Out Method" by Lucky Stevens was one wild excellent read. This author is a very interesting storyteller in that each chapter will have you only wanting more. There was a lots of fast action that only keeps the reader in suspense....that I even found myself holding my breath and with a ending that will only have you saying .... I didn't see that coming! This was some bank robbery and leaving you to think...Was this poor hero was in the 'wrong place at the wrong time?"
