Book Review: The Loch by Steve Alten
What a ride! Steve Alten's latest book is his best so far and I'm wondering how he's going to top this one. He gets better and better with each book and The Loch blew me away. I've said it before on my site that I love everything about Nessie and hands down this is the best book about the old girl out there. Packed with action and more information about Scotland and Loch Ness than I ever thought existed, this is one entertaining and educational read. I actually learned things from this book. The plot follows Zachary Wallace, a fallen from grace marine scientist, who's called back to Scotland for his father's murder trial. While there, the beast attacks some tourists and Zach gets caught up in trying to find the reason why and put to rest his own "demons" from the past. The explanations of what Nessie is and how things got to be the way they are are all very believable and I have to say the best theories I've ever read on her. The best read of the summer, order it now from the picture on the right side of the site, you will love it and you won't be disappointed! I give The Loch ***** out of *****.
