Guess what action lovers you will love it.Honestly


What we really liked in the book  Bongo Fury is that in a short plot of approximately 100 pages divided in two parts ,the author has successfully incorporated a thrilling plot, great adrenaline pumping fist and trigger action, characters to fall in love with and a twist in the end, thus combining every essential element of  a good crime fiction novel and making this novel worthy of a read.

Also, there are not many characters in the book thus acknowledging the fact that the book is short the author doesn’t try to make the story a character salad which happens most of the time and the author’s which do that accomplish nothing but make the text blurry and confusing and fortunately this is not the case with the book Bongo Fury.

The language is simple, clear and easily understood even with the authors Irish decent reflected through the writing it is easy for the readers to follow and understand the text.

The story contains some rough words which is understood as they were necessary to reflect the mood of the characters and the story.

The way in which the character of Jimmy evolves through the book, as a tough man from Northern Ireland who works hard running a music shop and earning a decent life for his family just like any normal person and how one chance encounter with his old mate Stevie makes his peaceful life chaotic and suddenly people start ending up dead including the boss of the local crime syndicate makes the story and the characters seem real.

We would highly recommend this book to anyone who plans on reading a good crime fiction book with characters quick on the trigger and also if you are new to reading books and plan on reading one but every time you do make an effort, you turn away seeing the big bulky books and somehow in the middle you quit reading it as it seems like a burden to you, if you fall under this category then the book is fit to serve your purpose.
