I hope you are well.
I notice from your review that you enjoyed Papillon. I agree with you. I found it one of the greatest stories written and far better than the film, even though Steve McQueen did a great job!
It was reading Papllion many years ago that destined me to try and one day write a book about a character that experienced such a monumental and inspiring journey as Henri Charriere did, (however much of his story is fact or fiction!)
And so I’m searching for readers who appreciate such quality books who might be willing to try out my novel "The DEAD LOOP". It is a psychological mystery about a man that seemingly dies once every single day...
I hope it will be the most unusual story you have every read...
Shelfari readers have said said:
It is a book I found very difficult to put down.
One of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time.
The book is on Kindle for next to nothing and is also available on most formats such as Nook, Kobo and Apple. You can also read a massive chunk of it for free on Shelfari.com.
If it intrigues you at all and you want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback. I owe a lot of its inspiration to Papillon!
Very best wishes,
Complete Trilogy edition
