Great as always!

Loved it! Brandon is like no one else and he continues to deliver in this 5th book. It has everything you would want out of an Alcatraz book and more. I was a little disappointed with the 4th book, but this book felt like new life was breathed into the series! If you read the first 4 books then the 5th book is a must read!

You had to SHOW not TELL... Darn you Brandon

First, let me be clear.
This series is a better education in how to write than any 100 actual textbooks on the subject. In a highly entertaining, lighthearted and humorous way you have walked the reader (or listener) through the hows and whys of writing.
Once I realized that was what you were doing (sometime in book two) I had one fear. I feared that Brandon would SHOW why you don't lie to your reader. That he would make us experience that pain.
Well, this is that book.
I doubt any nascent authors who read this series will EVER lie to their readers. In that way, I am certain our sacrifice will prevent a great deal of suffering in the future.
Nevertheless, DARN YOU BRANDON!
