Review: A Cup of Pending: Revenge - South Beach Style (Kindle Edition) -
by Jonah Gibson
I loved this book. It delivered everything I expected and even much more than that. I admired the writer’s ingenuity. The entire adventure started with a petty gesture of an individual that thought he was better than everyone else: Oliver tripped a homeless person (Tommy) so that he would lose the pending cup of coffee he obtained in a coffee shop. The following few pages made me think that the homeless guy and his friend, Cliff, would track Oliver down and kill him and that was that. I couldn’t be more wrong than that! The plot wasn’t so simple, so linear. It meanders through a reality show, a bunch of church-going people, all sorts of schemes and plots.
The author brought to life different type of groups and conceptions. The reality is brutal sometimes and hilarious other times. The action keeps you guessing and the end of the novel is far from what anyone would expect.
The characters are well-developed and interesting. I could see every single one of them; even the characters that had only a few lines were not just sketchy.
The turns of phrase contribute to the novel value. There were some awkward sentences here and there but they get lost in the entirety of the novel.
This is a novel I would recommend. It is for the people loving intricate plots, for people glued to reality shows on TV as well as for people looking for some romance (yes, there’s also some romance in there, even though it starts completely different than one would expect for romance).

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
