Review- View by Ed Morawski

Title: View
Author: Ed Morawski
Rating: 4/5
A mysterious young woman appears out of the desert. She has no memory of who she is or where she came from, but one thing quickly becomes clear- she may be one of the most powerful psychics ever known. She proves adept at Remote Viewing and uses her skills to spy for the government. But what are her true motives? View is the story of how she affects the lives of the people around her-and how one man falls in love with her.

My Review
**I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review**
 Now first of all I have to say this is not a book I would have picked on my own (since I usually gravitate to YA novels), but that's the great thing about the read to review's that are out there they give us that chance, and I am glad I signed up for this one. This book in my opinion could be compared to a action movie I would like to watch, but this one was played out in my mind, and the author did a great job in creating a fantastic picture. It had a damaged girl with no past, government working in secret, and abilities that no one can explain, but that`s not all you will get much more in the pages of this exciting book.
 I enjoyed most of the characters in the book, Angel was the one exception and yes I noticed how funny that was too. I liked how the majority of the story was told from max`s point of view but also to give the reader just enough to keep them interested the author gives a few different perspectives. I enjoyed those little bits of information cause just when I thought I had sort of figured out I was wrong and I needed to know more. Alicia was by far the biggest mystery and I want to know more about her story, well I guess what I really want is her take on the whole thing. I got to know her story through the eyes of others and even a bit from her, but I wish I knew more about her motives, and why she did the things that blindsided me, that being said I really felt for her and I'm glad she got to have some sort of happiness.
I found the author to be very knowledgeable I can really tell he is smart and did his homework, the information provided during their travels travels was so in depth it felt like I was with a tour guide and I loved it. I could also tell he is a photographer I got a great lesson in photography and I found it very neat. I also really enjoyed the quotes and the beginning of each chapter, I found them to be both deep and relate able to each chapter or the story, some even had me pausing for a moment to really soak it in.
That ending was something else and as I sit her writting this review I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I never saw any of it coming and I'm also not sure I believe everything I am told, I find myself conflicted and very very stunned, so good work Mr. Morawski I'll be thinking about this one for a while.
