Too Close to The Wind by Richard Attree is an adventure novel filled to the brim with action and an anti-hero that will blow your mind. Nick Kelly is a mixed-race Australian whose heart belongs to the ocean. His goal is to better himself, but how can he do that when he is stuck on his windsurfing board in the middle of the Atlantic. He is ready to face death when help comes in the form of a fancy yacht. Aboard the yacht is a man called “Master.” This man saves Nick, but for a price. In return for his life, Nick has to deliver a package to Cabarete. The offer is too good to be true, but Nick does not have any other option. Will he take a chance and deliver the package? Or is a peaceful life not on the cards for him?

Too Close to The Wind is a roller coaster entertaining ride that I loved intensely. The story opens with Nick when he isn’t at his best, but as the story progresses readers see a different and more mature side of him. However, what made me enjoy the story more is the fact that the author practically and strategically divided the story into four parts. That structured the plot and gave it the backbone to be built upon as the story progressed. Nick’s story is very interesting, but at the same time, it is very intriguing. He is the kind of protagonist that people write research papers on. I still cannot understand him, but I know that I like his determination and his will to fight until the end. The end genuinely surprised me! I hope Richard Attree writes a sequel because I have so many questions.
