Why You Were Taken | Jt Lawrence
7 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
Johannesburg 2021: Kirsten is a roaming, restless synaesthete: a photographer with bad habits and a fertility problem. A strange, muttering woman with dog hair on her jersey approaches Kirsten with a warning, and is found dead shortly afterwards. The warning leads her to the Doomsday Vault and a hit list of seven people - and Kirsten's barcode is on it.

#AndItsAugust #quickreads is another difficult one! What makes a book a quick read? The amount of pages? Ease of writing? Narrator? The fact that you can't put it down? The time you have to read?
However it may be...here are a few books I read in 2017, in no time at all!!!

This is definitely my #Julymostanticipated (actually most anticipated for a while now!) and I finally started on it! A thriller set in a near-future South Africa, written by a South African! It really makes me so happy!!! The language, the places, the references...everything is so spot-on and relatable!
Thank you @JTLawrence

This mystery thriller set in a futuristic South Africa takes a while to get going. It's worth sticking with it though as it turns out to be a good read, even though the bad guys are fairly obvious and the MC has a tendency to make stupid decisions at the wrong time. Rating: 3.5/5.

I received a free Kindle copy from the author and I am voluntarily giving an honest review.

It took me a while to get into this book, but this is because I don't usually go for suspense books, but once you get sucked into thenplot you get lost and follow Kirsten in her discovery that she wasn't her parent's biological child.
The book is set in a future South Africa, 2021, you follow Kirsten and her friend Keke's journey as they dig deeper into her past.
The way the author connects all the different stories is amazing
