“The Book of Paul” by Richard Long is not the usual type book I would read or like. But I really was able to get into this book and fall in love with the characters and loath others. As a warning to my readers, if you don’t like to read books with sexual content, blood, gore and occult you might not like this one. There are going to be more in this series and not sure if I will be reading any of the others (I might, it was just really intense for me), however I will say I did like this book.
The book is centered around Martin, Rose, Paul, William(Billy), the Striker and Michael. Paul is in charge. His goal is to protect his family, the Kelly clan. In order to do this he has done some very bad things. He raised Martin to not fear, to feel no pain and how to continue to protect the family. Paul originally worked with just Martin, training him and breaking him down. In the case that something went wrong he had a back up plan, something you wouldn’t have guessed. No one knew what craziness they were getting into when they met Paul and agreed to learn from him. Rose falls in love with Martin, which Paul doesn’t like and which Paul is trying to prevent, she is part of the enemy clan. So many twists and turns throughout the whole book.
With lots of blood, fighting, sex, and religious content, this book is like nothing I’ve ever read. I enjoyed reading this book, it was a fast paced read that sucked me in. I may not of understood all the occult information presented but that didn’t stop me from wanting to keep on reading. The author really had to be organized when writing this, with so much detail and such a complex story it has to be well thought out before he wrote it. Just amazing.
I’m not sure who I’d recommend this book to, I know who I wouldn’t. No one under the age of 18 should read it, people who would be bothered by blood/sexual content/occult/murder should not read it. But if you’re looking for an adventurous crazy book I think you would enjoy this book.
This book is well written, has a lot of detail to help you understand and the character development helps you image them in detail, both image and personality. I want to thank the author for allowing me to read this and introducing me to a different type of genre.
