Whoa! I just finished reading the novel released by author M.L. Sanford, Auguste and The Condition, and my first impression was just, whoa! What a ride this book takes its readers on. Follow the story of our protagonist, Auguste Kensley, and his childhood friend Raj, as they take a trip to India. Auguste hopes to find a fresh start in his life, a life that hasn't been easy from the start. Poor his entire life, and just suffering from another blow as his career as a tabloid reporter has gone south. What he finds on the pair's travels, however, is more than he could have ever envisioned. Finding love and loss, being kidnapped and held captive, only to find that he must complete The Condition, the task his kidnappers require of him in order to grant his freedom, Auguste starts to question the meaning of his life. If he doesn't complete The Condition, his beloved Jasmine will be killed, but if he does complete it, what will it mean for him?
I loved this book. Loved. It. Full of action, suspense, and psychological terror, Auguste and The Condition is just the type of book that will have readers obsessively turning the pages from start to finish. Author M.L. Sanford has done a fantastic job in creating characters that his readers will truly care about and will think about long after the story is done. If that isn't the hallmark of a great author, I don't know what is. The storyline has so many twists and turns, and the outcome was certainly unexpected, at least to this reader. Any reader who loves mysteries, thrillers, action, adventure, or a simply great work of fiction should definitely read Auguste and The Condition. I will certainly be reading the next book by author M.L. Sanford. If it's anything like Auguste and The Condition, it's sure to be a great read!
