I rate this book 3.5 out of 4 stars, considering the fact I was so eager to finish it in one sitting (yes,that's how good it was). I would've given it 4 stars but this isn't my regular kind of read. Nevertheless, it was very informative.


The story is about the protagonist Steven who dared to administrate a couple of immortality pills he had discovered. It offered him unlimited powers, especially when he travelled to Manhattan and decided to become a saxophone player, which he excelled at. Afterwards, he starts to have visions that lead to go an adventure that will teach him the aftermath of the world of immortality.


It was incredibly intriguing how the author succeeds to draw the reader into this daunting world of suspense and action starting from the very beginning.
As I continued leafing later on through the pages and begin to be acquainted with the protagonist.


In The Diary of an Immortal, Castello created this spectacularly developed and flawed character that you can't help but fall in love with and root for; his characteristics are likeable, successfully influencing andwildly inspiring, considering the manners with which he chooses to forge his path through the hardships this strange new life throw at his helpless endeavors. Therefore I really enjoyed discovering how he grows and changes allthroughout his adventures. So what's not to like? Although I would've been more grateful if te author would have given more insights on his backstory.
The writing was very appealing and engaging like no other.

This was my first Castello read and as of now I feel completely safe diving into anything written by such a genius author. And I'm undoubtedly impressed by the dark feel given to the atmosphere of the various events in the book, and therefore I'm certain that fans of historical fiction, and readers that are enjoy classic adventures, would instantly fall in love with Castello's work.
