The latest review reads: "finished this book quite quickly, but struggled with writing a review, because, well, how do you review the unconventional? “WTF” has to be the most original, mind-boggling, faith-testing, all around unique book I’ve ever read.

“WTF” is a worthy read, and I strongly encourage readers with an open mind to have a go at it. I repeat: with an open mind. Don’t bother reading this book if you’re expecting flowers and chocolates, it’s not that at all. The story itself touches on hard subjects, such as rape, assassinations on demand, political unjustness, and, yes, it attacks religion. It only made me enjoy it more for everything it attacks and makes you question. There is a blunt originality to the way the author portrays everything, something that grips you and makes you keep reading.

I had a love-hate relationship with the main character’s best friend. Love because of his views (or non-views) on religion, that so echo my own. Hate because of his views on relationships (which so differ from my own). These kind of contrasts happen throughout the storyline, and I found them engaging, always keeping me on my toes.

The novel encompasses struggles the main character has in his career, in his personal life, with finding or not finding faith, with conforming to what is expected, with the military itself… The author did a splendid job tying it all in together with a believable context, and again, it was an enjoyable mind-twister. I, for one, am looking forward to any following novels."

Check this novel out for yourselves... :) http://viewbook.at/WTF
