My Thoughts: What I really liked about this book is that it grabbed your attention immediately in the beginning, it didn’t have a long, drawn out build up that you can run into sometimes. “If He Wakes” is well written and takes you on a rollercoaster ride and puts you through some twists you would never see coming. I would definitely recommend this book to others. The only thing I wasn’t too fond of was the ending was given away about 3/4 through the book, I think I would have enjoyed more build up.
“They say that when you have a traumatic event, there is the ‘before’ and the ‘after’, that all things fall under those two categories, but no one talks about the precipice. When you’re looking down on the sheer drop below and can feel yourself tipping, there’s no clichés or wise quotes for that and I wondered if it’s because no one gets that moment.”
