I Will Find Her by Thomas Apostle

I can not give this book enough praise, this is an amazing work of literature. This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. You will fall in love, you will laugh, you will have your heartbroken, and you will want revenge just like Thomas.
This is a story told by an 81 year old man, Thomas Benson, in what is suppose to be his last hours on earth, he is on death row for murder and is scheduled to be executed at 6 am the following morning. Thomas decides in his final hours to tell his story, since he states he is not even sure he committed the murder, but he wanted to and he wants to die in order to be reunited with the love of his life. This story may seem not the unique, but I feel it is, not I guess in the plotline but in how it is presented. Thomas tells his story to a mouse that he names Cecil, and I will tell you that by the end of the novel you will want a Cecil. As well as I feel the author did an amazing job at capturing the characters themselves, one prime example would be the fact that the story is told primarily from the point-of-view of an 81 year old man, people of this age many times when telling stories get sidetracked and this happens which to me gives the story even more realness.
Truthfully I have to criticism with this book, I feel it was very well written, organized, characters had dimension, and the author placed plot twists in the perfect places so that it made the book not so predictable, but there is a degree of predictability since it is a character retelling his story. Since I did state I had no real criticisms with the book, if I could change anything would I? Maybe, and that would be the ending when it dealt with Thomas' daughter and grandkids. Otherwise no I think all actions had reasons and were presented perfectly.
In conclusion, I give this a 5 out of 5! highly highly recommend! this is a book that will stick with you, it will have thinking about morality, death, and religion. I will make you think about what you would have done in his situation, and make you wonder was God present and talking to him, and will make you also question what lies after death.....
