The Impenetrable Spy by Spencer Brokaw

This story was easy to follow most of the time and had a good definition of characters.  The author takes the reader by the hand and leads us through the storyline.  There is a lot of imagination in this book and the character development shows good promise.

This book was written at a lower level then this reviewer normally likes to read so I had trouble following it sometimes.  It also has some issues with continuity; for example in one place he was sitting on a chair in a room but he didn’t enter the room until a few paragraphs after that.  It was written for a 3rd or 4th grade reading level so the sentences seemed choppy to me but would probably be great for that age group.

Generally, I think this book shows great promise for a new author.  I encourage him to continue with his endeavors in writing and I hope to be able to read things of his in the future.  I would, however, also encourage him to go back through this book and fix his continuity issues. This is a good book for that age level and worth a read.
