Review: Sky 1 by William Amerman

Review:
I enjoyed this book, it took me a while to get into it though. It was well written and the scenery and settings were very descriptive. I could picture it in my own mind very easily. I love books like this. This book got my mind working about what I would do if I was in the situation that the main character, Nick, was in. My final verdict on this story is that I would recommend it. 

Summary:
Nick Burke has been allotted 389 square feet of living space by the government. Disease spreads quickly when people are packed together so tightly. Quarantines are regularly imposed in an effort to contain the spread of infection. Lately, though, rumors are spreading that quarantines on some Grounds are not being lifted.
 
When a quarantine is imposed on Nick's Ground, he and his family are trapped. The only way out is to break laws that carry a penalty of death. Fearing for his life and the safety of his family, Nick joins forces with a local group to move to another Ground. But can he trust his new friends?


About The Author:
William Amerman was born in Houston, Texas and obtained his Bachelors degree in English from The University of Texas - Austin, way back in the last century. He lived in Austin for eight years, then moved to Denver, Colorado to explore the whole "mountain man" lifestyle. In Denver he met a cute Dutch girl on a ski slope, whom he quickly wooed and followed back to her native country, The Netherlands. He married the cute Dutch girl in 1999 and they spent the next 7 years raising two sons and a sadly over-weight hound in a suburb of Amsterdam before moving back to the US in 2003. Their third son was born in 2005.
He received his MBA in Finance from Santa Clara University in 2009 and currently holds a "real" job in Information Technology in order to feed his three sons, but manages to write in the mornings and on weekends. His latest efforts are directed towards finishing a futuristic thriller trilogy based on a simple idea he had one late Saturday morning lying in bed, looking at the sky through a skylight window in the roof; proving that getting up early can be a hazard to creative thinking! 

Review: 4/5 Losing a point only because it was a little hard to get into at first.
