    This is a fun, wild, romp of a thriller. It?s not believable, the characters aren?t deep, but that doesn?t mean it wasn?t enjoyable. The book alternates between two scenarios. The first is told from the perspective of Sara Hall, a recent MBA grad looking to make her mark in...

    Team building at its best or worst..... Ruthless, ambitious, selfish, greedy, jealous, intelligent, hardworking, devious and trapped are words that can easily describe Vincent, Sam, Jules, and Sylvie. They live a life of luxury fueled by the adrenaline that comes from making billion...

    Monotonous. Predictable. Uninspired. Missed Opportunity. A quick perusal of the reviews and the consensus seems to be, The Escape Room is mindless fun. Mindless?sure. I?d rally behind that nomenclature all day. But fun? I?d say, that?s debatable and reliant on the reader?...
