    5. I just finished reading the Marsburg Diary by Chris White. Disappointed and sorry to say this was not a story I would recommend someone take time to read or attempt to understand.It was a relatively short read but unfortunately very wordy and a difficult storyline to enjoy! You find yourself asking more questions then it answers but amusingly at the end of the book when it clearly states that the answers to your questions would be found in his next installment. I'm not sure if that was written s [...]


    6. Apparently, this book is a takeoff from another book that I haven't read. It was interesting enough on its own, but I guess there are more installments that answer the questions one is bound to have upon finishing it. I was okay with the book until the ending, which, as I said, is "to be continued."
