Official Review: Guardian of Deceit by William H. Coles

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.

While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

I totally agree with you, Mercy Bolo. It's really not all about what life hands to us, but, what we have been able to do with what life delivers. I think Darwin, in this instance, handled the adversities of life appreciatively well.

I'm sorry, I disagree with the review. On the other hand I was overly harsh and came across as condescending. For that I apologise Mr. Coles :no-spoil:

To each his own; Coles is now one of my favorite authors. I thought Guardian of Deceit was a stellar novel.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

A good review. In the game of survival, you often come across people with different characters. Nothing molds one better than experience.

No doubt such books open ones imagination that how people are living in this world facing ups and downs in their life. It is worth reading book and the review has comprehensively covered this book.

This sounds like a very well written coming of age story. It seems that the author pulls the reader in with many questions anyone could ask about their own life. Thank you for the review. Very well written

That's a great read, the book shows that relationships don't just happen in a single day as most movies depict but that they are a long-term affair. Also the Author has shown some of the problems facing the society i.e. being brought up in poor condition. Thanks for the review

A coming-of-age story reveals a smart and strong-willed teen becoming a man in a new and unfamiliar environment.An exhilarating family tale when concentrating on the main characters, but the relationship fireworks and intrigue feel ordinary.
