Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?
I don’t like horror movies, but I like thrillers, that kind of movies that get you a bit nervous. When you are watching them, a part of you is saying “close your eyes!” but an energy that you don’t know where is coming from keeps your eyes open and enjoying spending distress. How difficult it is to manage emotions!
It’s odd that so many people enjoy fear, or distress, and that we love watching a thriller movie, or reading a book, climbing to the highest attraction or jumping with a parachute. We enjoy discovering our limits, although I must confess that since I’m getting older I have become more fearful. Adventure and risk aren’t my thing, I have always been cautious, in spite of it my day-to-day is close to an Indiana Jones movie, where every day brings a different problem to fight, and an emotion to contend with. Maybe I’m more adventurous than I thought, because there is no need of a duel in the jungle to get adrenaline to the limit. Fortunately, it is often to reach a successful conclusion, but the road is not easy. However, who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?
Reading Susana’s novel I didn’t feel fear, but I was tense and I could not stop reading. On the one hand, the murders on the Camino de Santiago, on the other the death of the protagonist’s husband and the fire that brings the reader to suspect a lot of strange things, and a love story that can be dangerous… This is Susana’s first novel, and I think that it deserves recognition by the genre’s readers.
SIN RETORNO is a thriller, a page turner, that will thrill and I’m sure it will give us great joy. If you love thrilling and unexpected twists stories, this is your book. It is published by Random House in a really low-price.
It is the perfect spring reading! Get into Pamplona, Roncesvalles and the Camino de Santiago, although you’ll probably never come back…
