Mr. Peters' tale of two buddies and their adventures kept me turning to the next page to see what happens. Generally, I perfer conversations to narrative, but his narration kept the story well in motion. His writing clearly improves towards the end of the story, where conversations between the characters help the reader understand them more clearly. Definitely a good first novel that keeps the reader's attention. I hope he's got another in him as I'd like to see more of what happens to his characters.
