A Whisper in the Jungle threw me at first. The style of writing came across more like a journal rather than a story but the story there was just so engaging that I couldn't put it down. Every time I thought about putting it down I realized I had just read another chapter.
Despite the writing style, I found it very full of detail, every page was full of vivid detail in a way I didn't know possible. This book definitely took me by surprise.
The mystery keeps you reading, makes you need to know what happened, it was a very fun, very clever story. I will be checking out the second book!
