Book "Eleven Floors" by Robert Lampros

About the Book: Eleven Floors is a short novel about a young man's first year at college the year after his father passed away. He struggles to succeed academically and socially, while maintaining faith in Jesus Christ, and adjusting to life in a new world. With help from God, from his friends, and from Lynn, the woman he falls in love with, Charles hopes to fulfill his destiny.

About the Author: Robert Lampros is an author of Christian poetry, essays, and fiction who lives in St. Louis.

My Review: This is a very well written book. This young author creates our main character Charles, that is a devoted christian, and describes his experience going into college, where he meets all variate of people, like his roommate Nate, his girlfriend Lynn, and others on his journey. When facing challenges, he recurs to praying. And he never gets week on his beliefs.
This author is a natural storyteller, and I am sure you will enjoy this story and you will be entertained for a couple of hours. Unfortunately this story is short, but hopefully it will continue soon, as it is advertise as being volume one (or part one) of a series. That is good, because the end of the story left some question marks on my mind, like "What is really going on here?".
Overall, I recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers that appreciate a well written book, that boosts our faith, showing the importance of praying as lifestyle.
The author sent me an electronic version of his book and did not request for a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
