Book Review

Reviewed by April Gilly for Readers' Favorite

Doubt by Anne-Rae Vasquez is about the Truth Seekers and their mission to find the truth. Originally an online role-playing game, creator Harry Doubt takes the game offline in the hopes of finding out what happened to his mother who disappeared. Harry continues his father's work with a man his father worked with and eventually discovers that the man knows more that he says. Harry quickly learns that things aren't what they seem when things start happening that he had no reason to believe would happen. Cristal, one of Harry's top Truth Seekers, is quickly pulled into what is going on and starts to learn the truth behind the strange things that have been happening to her all her life. With the help of a fellow Truth Seeker, Cristal and Harry find that things are very different, but that there is hope of finding Harry's missing mother and Cristal's missing father.

Doubt by Anne-Rae Vasquez is really slow-paced but then starts to pick up, and once that happened the book became amazing. Doubt is well written with great imagery and some plot twists that I never saw coming. There aren't many books that have such a unique plot twist. Once religion is brought into Doubt, the book gets a little weird but when the pieces start falling into place it making sense. When the background stories of some of the paranormal creatures come to light, the book gets even better. There were two thing about Doubt that I didn't enjoy but the book was so awesome that it was easy to overlook.

Brilliant Writing Style
This is a great YA novel. Anne has written more than an exciting book, she’s written a story that teaches reading skills. After I finished it, I gave it to my nine year old granddaughter who read two chapters in twenty minutes. The great part was how much of the story she was able to retain and talk about. For me, that is worth five stars any day of the week.
What’s cool is the story. Harry Doub, changed his name to Doubt, has been hired by GN to find out how the servers have been breached. In order to find out, he assembles a team of gamers he’s come to know from the game he created: Truth Seekers—an extremely bright group of teenagers. In order to identify were the breach occurred; Harry starts globe-trotting for the answers. Unlike most espionage thrillers that get bogged down and difficult to follow when written for adults, this author has figured a way out to tell the story without all the, sometimes, overburdensome back ground us adults seem to crave for. That is brilliance.
The kids are not only learning how to read and enjoy it, they are going to take a trip around the world and be introduced to time travel. Now that’s a book worth reading!
Five Stars plus!
