Mine All Mine by Adam Davies

Mine All Mine Mine All Mine by Adam Davies
rating: 4 of 5 stars

After having finished 3 of Adam Davies novels, one thing has remained consistent-- his prose is crisp and his characters while not always likable, are flawed enough to feel human and real-- like people who could exist.

Mine All Mine, while predictable at times, remains an enjoyable read. Otto Sparks despite his self-developed immunities to a wide array of pharmacological poisons, is still flawed enough to be believably human.

This is Davies first attempt at a suspense/crime caper style novel and while it's not the best novel of this type I've read it certainly shows promise and it does have considerably more believable characters than many mass market suspense novels.

If Davies plot development continues to grow to eventually match his strong character development his future novels will be further improvements above and beyond his existing novels which have grown better with each successive tome.
