    1. I was incredibly impressed with this book and will definitely be picking up more of Buick's work in the future. Check out my blog,Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing for my full review. It was quite the experience!! (There is a lot more information on the blog)To briefly summarize, Enthrill is a new publisher, trying new marketing techniques. They took this book and created a month long reading event. One Child is a thriller that you read in real time. Each day new chapters were released the sa [...]

    2. One Child – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat“I had a dream last night,” Halima said, her eyes locked on her youngest sister. “Dreams are good,” her father said. “Do you remember what you dreamt?” “Yes, I do.” She licked her cracked lips with a dry tongue. “I was someone important, I’m not sure why, but people were talking about me. Many, many people. They had pictures of me.” “You are important, Halima.” “No, father. Not just to you. To hund [...]

    3. After finishing the last page, I closed "One Child" and sat in reflective silence for quite a period of time. This powerful, fast paced and emotional story held me captive until the very end. There were times when I had to put it aside to do some necessary tasks, but as soon as I had a chance, I was right back to reading to find out what was going to happen next. With the twists and turns and the ending that totally caught me off guard, I found myself finishing the book in no time - wishing it d [...]

    4. One Child is a thrilling tale that ties into many worlds and creates a picture of life through the eyes of soldiers in Afghanistan, as well as the people who live there. Beyond that, it's a well-written story, full of suspense, leaving you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Couple this with the online experience you can have (mystories.enthrill/) through the daily release, it's an amazing integration of digital publishing and social media. Anyone with an internet connection (especially [...]

    5. Great book! I would like to give this one 4.5 stars! I experienced the full gamut of emotion while reading the story of One Child, Halima Hussein, and how she affected the lives of so many around the world. I received an advance reader copy from Jeff Buick and it's been sitting on my shelf since that day. My son chose this book for me to read and while I was hesitant I decided to give it a go and am I ever glad I did.

    6. I was given this book by a friend of the author. I really did not think I was going to like it, especially after seeing the name U2 in the content ( I find Bono such a wanker), but I ended up being really impressed by this novel. I will definately be picking up another one of his titles. I hear African Ice is really good.

    7. I really enjoy this author. Easy to read and yet moves right along. He is Canadian but has not written for a while now. I would read the next book he writes no matter what it is.

    8. Love this book! More people should be reading this Calgary author. As I've said before marketing is everything!
