Book Review: The Oxygen Wasters by L A Greyson
|5 stars, 1 review|
L A Greysonabout this book: "The first kill is the hardest" becomes Eden Franks' mantra as he embarks on a quest to eliminate five "Oxygen Wasters" in the world. His comfortable life in San Francisco is thrown into chaos when he meets his closest childhood friend for a casual drink, and ends up unknowingly becoming involved in a secretive organization which threatens the lives of his own family if he does not successfully deliver the task they have assigned to him.
Nine thousand miles away, a housemaid in Sri Lanka clings to life after suffering horrific physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her employer. A successful stock broker in Bangkok mysteriously commits suicide leaving his new bride behind. An Indian carpenter and three of his colleagues suffocate to death locked inside a metal shipping container in the scorching heat of the Dubai summer.
The Oxygen Wasters weaves these seemingly unrelated stories together, and takes you on a fast paced journey across the globe. From the shores of Hawaii, to the deserts of Dubai. From the splendour of the Taj Mahal, and the whimsy of the German Christmas markets, to the exotic plains of the Masai Mara in Kenya. Along the way, the lines between survival and revenge become blurred as Eden races to complete his task on schedule, in order to save the lives of those he cherishes most.

I couldn't put it down! Now I can't wait for the next book to come outThe plot is original and creative. I found the mix of characters interesting and believable, I also like that the author made me feel empathy for the characters. As somebody that loves reading, I really like a book that I dive into or can't put down and this book delivered on both. The descriptions of people and places make it easy for you to visualise. I love travel so the international elements and varied locations to the book made the story exciting and dynamic . The author really breaks down some of the nastier sides of the world we live in and shows a genuine compassion with a dark twist for the guilty. I look forward to more from this new author.
