This is by far one of the best free ebooks that I've downloaded so far. This is my first time reading this author's work and was hooked from page one.

Amazon.com reviews say that this book is reminiscent of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. And while the plot does loosely resemble that of Brave New World, I found that I enjoyed the author's prose and style even more. It felt like half the book consisted of suspenseful action* chronicling Joshua's upbringing on the island with the Elders, his adventure at sea, and eventually, his short-lived life on a new island, while the other half of the book expounds in great detail the thoughts that are brewing in Joshua's head as he tries to reconcile his individual thought processes with the ones that the Elders have ad-nauseum drilled into his head. Both parts were seamlessly woven together to create a story that I just couldn't put down until I'd finished the last page!

*I was so hooked on the suspense that I lost my Kindle about halfway through reading this novel and I literally searched for it for 5+ hours nonstop just so I could continue reading this book.

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J. White is an amazing writer who knows how to draw his readers in and keep them at the edge of their seats. His latest book, Deviant Acts, is no exception and deals with a ex-soldier/heroin addict who finds himself in a situation where he needs to play the hero. As our author of the day, White reveals how relatives of his inspired this book and why his friends call his wife "Saint Pam."
