The Recycled Book Reading Challenge: Terror’s Cradle by Duncan Kyle
The 1970’s seems to have been a great period for the adventure & suspense novel. This book serves as a prime example. I purchased this book at a used book store for about .10 cents. I love finding books in English around places like these because they don’t sell so well, only the rare customer enjoys the challenge of reading novels in other languages, so I always find a very good deal on them.
This book serves as a fine example of what good suspense novels used to be. They aren’t filled with sickening love scenes. It’s and adventure. The character has a goal – in this case, find Alsa, his missing cohort – and return home victorious. The suspense is in the adventure and that’s the way it should be!
I really enjoyed this book. The print was of normal size, so it made for a quick read. The story was just that – the story. No sex, no fruitcakes, no cottony clouds. If you like adventure and happen to find this book, I’d highly recommend it! Enjoy!
