My Rating: 5 stars
Lost In Tanganyika by Thomas Thorpe is a fascinating adventure novel. One that will lure readers from everywhere. The well-written plot instantly takes readers on a journey of a life time. Danger and suspense hanging in the air, causing a shiver to run down the backs of readers as the characters race against everything to make it back home safe. Or will they?
Thomas Thorpe’s novel, Lost In Tanganyika, is by far one of the greatest reads I have stumbled across. Not only is his story highly entertaining but it also, shows readers the real scary truth about the world. Slavery, war, and even cannibals can be found inside this read. Readers will be left on the edge of their seats as they turn the pages wondering what happens next. The characters, William and Elizabeth as well as their new friend were perfect for this eye opening read. I can’t imagine Lost In Tanganyika without these three believable characters. They make the story pop to life and leave readers falling from their seats into the book itself. Beware, the heart pounding fear and visual scenes will take you on an incredible journey. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers world wide.
