Almost all of Davis Bunn's book that I have read have been good. Unlimited was no exception. The criminal was rather obvious, though. This book was based on a movie. As I was reading, I kept wondering what it would be like as a movie.
This book had a very unique plot; I have read many books before but none quite like this one. The only problem was that the invention and the physics involved with it got just a little bit confusing. Other than that, it was a good book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.
From the beginning I was hooked! "Simon crawled away from his burning car, amazed that he was still alive." (xi) Why was his car burning? Does someone want him dead? Davis Bunn captured my attention and held it throughout the book.
Simon traveled to Mexico to meet with a professor that he knew only to find the professor dead, and someone wanted to kill him, too. Simon was there with technology that would harness wasted energy, however, someone wanted that device. Davis Bunn did an excellent job of developing Simon's character and the other characters in the book. I grew attached to Harold Finch, the orphanage director, and I really liked Pedro who had grown up at the orphanage and now wanted to continue the work. Over the course of the book, Simon grew as a person, and I found this growth satisfying. When I finished the book, I wanted to know about his future.
Unlimited the movie is about to be released. It will be just as exciting and engaging as the book!
The mystery and intrigue of Simon Orwell's trip to Mexico made me want to read more, and I look forward to reading Bunn's other books - this was my first but not my last.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
Davis Bunn is one of my favorite authors. I have read all his books and some of them twice. I found this book
Unlimited is part science fiction, and part inspirational. Having lived close to the Mexican border, ot also paints a true picture
of how drugs affect those living in Mexico. This book is filled with suspense, betrayal, and it is also beautifully protrays Hope, and daring to believe, and not giving up.
Unlimitred started slowly for me but soon became a book I couldn't read fast enough and was sorry when it ended. Unlimited was written from the movie "Unlimited" which Davis Bunn had a part in the screenplay.
I am so glad I had the opportunity to be part of the launch team for this book. I received this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
Davis Bunn did not disappoint me in his newest book Unlimited. The opening page immediately thrust me into a thrill sequence with clues of "why?" still to be discovered. Throughout the book, the clues kept coming, and the characters kept developing. Rushing along to a very heightened climax, Unlimited left me with a better understanding of the political situation in Mexico, a new quest for ways to love and protect orphans, and a great satisfaction with the book as a whole. I highly recommend this book to any reader, get ready for a great thrill ride!!
Dr. Velasquez longs to help the poor people of his native Ojinga, Mexico and especially the orphans. He's nearly perfected, with the help of brilliant, formerly unpredictable Simon Orwell, a way to produce free electricity.
Simon brings the device to Ojinga for promised funding from the city council, only to learn Dr. Velasquez is dead, supposedly of a heart attack. The city council refuses funds, Simon intends to return at once to the USA, but someone tries to kill him.
He's rescued by Pedro Marin, assistant town manager who hides him in the orphanage run by Dr. Harold Finch. Dr. Finch desperately needs money to keep the orphanage going.
Sophia Marin, Pedro's sister and Dr. Finch's assistant, hates Simon. She fears his presence in the orphanage will endanger the children.
The â€˜good guy' in the story is SO good, readers will quickly guess he's the worst villain in the end. And anticipate how he will be revealed and caught. Readers also will know that vilified Dr. Clara isn't the enemy she seems.
Simon is seeking forgiveness for his past. Sofia doesn't want to love him. The plot twists and surprises will keep readers intrigued and satisfied with the ending.
I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
