  "The Boy in the Suitcase holds your interest, and hold onto your heart." by janvbarnes (see profile) 08/26/12

This book will invoke many emotions as you travel along with Nina, a nurse who wants to save the world from harm, as she struggles to find the who, what, and why behind finding a naked little boy barely alive inside a suitcase. Through each character, you get a glimpse of the good, the bad, and the ugly found inside humanity. The story is a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs that eventually comes to a stop, but Nina remains behind unable to get off the track.

  "What happened to Mikas?" by karie96 (see profile) 11/06/12

We chose the book as our October read and found it difficult to finish. We have a club of 10 and only 2 finished and discussed it. It was poorly written. The beginning throws in so many characters that you find it hard to draw connections between them and what the purpose of such a back story was. During the climatic part of the book, only about 5 characters remain important to the story. The end is equally disappointing as you are left wondering what happens to the characters. It almost seems as though the writer was in a hurry to finish the book and left it hinging on hope for a second installment. At the rate this book developed, I doubt I would be reading a second part to it.

I really enjoyed this book. From the way it began to the journey that it took you on. Trying to figure out why the boy was in the suitcase and what Nina would do with him in the end only to get to the end and have to ask, what! are you kidding me?
