Saving Sophie

Saving Sophie by Ronald Balson was recommended by my work colleague who always has great recommendations. She also suggested Once We Were Brothers, which I plan to read as well. While I enjoyed Saving Sophie very much – fast paced, short chapters, compelling story – it could have been much shorter. It came out of the gate swinging, then stalled out a bit in the middle with lots of middle eastern history, and then picked up again at the end. At 400+ pages, it surely could have been a bit condensed. However, for the most part, it moved quickly, and, as I said, the story was interesting, so well worth a read.
