Longing - R.M.Gauthier Review

(Book Cover Source: Goodreads)
Hello Readers...

Being a reader who loves reading short stories and short novels, I was thinking of reviewing more short stories and short novels. So today I have come up with review of "Longing" written by "R.M.Gauthier".

Here is a brief synopsis of the book along with a quick video trailer for you to get better understanding about the story of this book.

" Longing is a story of a Special Forces Officer and a Business Tycoon becoming unlikely partners in their fight for justice and revenge.

Leroy Johnston, a Special Forces Officer, returns home from Afghanistan after serving 8 terrifying years, only to discover that his nightmares has not ended. After learning that his sister has been missing for months, Leroy sets out to find and bring her home. Meeting Landon Miller, a Business Tycoon and owner of an exclusive club exposes Leroy to a world of corruption that he had no idea even existed."

I know that a book should never be judged by its cover but can't contain myself from praising the cover of the book. I must say the cover looks fabulous and awesome. Now moving away from the aesthetics and coming to the technicalities of the book:

I really liked the story which the book is trying to portray. The story of a retired Special Forces Officer coming home and finding her sister missing for months seems pretty intense and interesting as well. However I will like to mention a problem to which I will talk about in the later part of the post. The author has created very relate able characters and I found myself immediately connecting with the characters.

Coming to the writing aspects of the book. Renee Gauthier has done an immensely great job in conceptualizing and narrating the story in a pretty short format. The story has its own twists and turns which will keep you interested and hooked up till you reach the end of the book, which most of the readers will be able to do in just one sitting. The thing that I loved about this book is the writers narration style. She is able to convey majority of the content in just few sentences. While reading this book, I actually felt like Renee Gauthier is narrating me the entire story right in front of me.

However, the thing that set me off was the end of the novel. I felt like I read the entire book and nothing happened in the end. To confirm that I didn't miss something in the middle, I read the entire book again and got the same feeling that the book actually doesn't have a end. I actually wish that this book is just like a prequel to the actual novel and I seriously hoped that this book gets converted into a complete novel as this story is full of suspense and twists.

So if asked to rate it, taking into consideration the entire book along with the the unusual end, I would give this book 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. If the book had a proper end, I would have actually given this book 4.5 stars. I would surely recommend this book to all the suspense-thriller lovers. Here are the links to the amazon from where you can get your book.
