"The story featured well-developed characters, plenty of action and interactions, and a provocative situation. I think all readers could identify with the couple, and would like to have the powers of Joe. The author wrote an interesting and entertaining book, and has a definite future in the world of authorship." - J.D. Lovil, Amazon reviewer (5/5 stars)
"This book will keep your interest all the way through. Good character development. Good plot development. Smooth writing. Maybe one grammatical error. Some British word references seem out of place for California, but do not deter from a good read. I could see this book easily made into a TV series." - Robert L. Pence, Amazon reviewer (5/5 stars)
"On a plus side Mr. Allen [sic] has written a plot I've never seen before. On a negative side, the first few chapters seem to repeat themselves. Mr. Allen [sic] could have done a little more research about correction and penile institutions in the states, and common lingo, because his "American" characters didn't spoke [sic] like Britons and people's titles, places, and things of that nature were not correct, and it slowed the pace down for me. Still, I understood the gist of what he was trying to say. It kept my interest." - Susan G. Heneghan, Amazon reviewer (4/5 stars)
