The author really chose well the background for this story, two complete opposite, medicine and black magic. I personally do not like to read about black magic, especially voodoo because it is related to demons, and I want nothing to do with them. Thanks for sharing your ideas about this book.

This book sounds really good. Your review and comments about Voodoo made me curious about this book.

You have given this book such a hearty endorsement, that I feel compelled to read it. I adore books like this and am left wondering how Benjamin manages to sort this out, if at all. Carrie Rubin sounds like an author we need to look out for in future. Many thanks for an excellent review.

Any writing that is based upon logical and argumentative discourse has a great appeal to me. And this book is indeed a great food for this kind of appetite.

I was hooked from the very begining of the review. This seems like a fast-paced read with an unusual combination of vodoo and medical thriller.

Thank you for the amazing review.

You wrote a great review. Unless someone really disliked this genre I can't imaging anyone not wanting to check this book out. The Vodou (or voodoo), the mystery, fast-moving, just seems like something I would like to read. Especially note worthy is the fact you said may be the best edited book you've read from Online Book Club. The last book I read from Online Book Club that I reviewed I still gave a 3 out of 4 stars but it was definitely not edited well. A lot of mistakes to where it was very distracting. Thanks for your review!

Wow, it sounds like this book had quite the effect on you. It's not often I see a review with such passion behind it. I know I've certainly never written one. Makes me think I need to step up my game :D . After reading this review I will definitely be adding this one to my reading list. Thanks!

Benjamin is strongly built character, sticking to his beliefs and not easily led astray despite the signs slapping him in the face.
I like how you used the words "signs slapping him in the face". Great review. I am eager to check out this book myself. Thanks for the review.

That is a very good review about that book, Benjamin Orie finally God a misterious papule on his forhead just by tourching a bone, that is very serious, despit he is a self decipline person watchful and careful, that means we must be extra always every careful in all things only God the perfect master.
