The Loop

Title: The loop by Nicolas Evans
Call number: EVA
Location: L4 Lifestyle Section

Reviewed by: Josephine Goh (SHS student)
Rating: 9/10

This book is an excellent read, somewhat different from what I expected in a good way.

It was not boring and the story is so interesting that it was able to hold me ‘captive’ from the first to the last page.

This book focuses on wolves (a different theme which I like), community, conflicts, relationships and family. Each character in the book is so well developed, you feel as though you are being pulled into their lives.

Give this excellent book a chance to be read and you will definitely agree with me that this is a superb book which you will also recommend to other avid readers.

Enjoy! 🙂
