Book Readers Review
Mystery, Suspense, Action, Entrepreneurs and Competition are the themes of 'The Big Disrupter'. Paul Markun has produced an epic story in this his first novel that is both entertaining and educational. Markun has the gift of combining his talents in business and as a story teller. The tale starts slowly and builds into an exciting and sometimes fraught experience for the players. A plot begins to emerge that keep you turning the pages at a frantic pace to discover the outcome.
I do not need to say a whole lot more about the plot and book that the description and synopsis do not already tell you. The author has created well developed characters, some of them you will love others you may end up hating. Paul has a natural ability to tell an entertaining story and take you on a journey with his characters lives and experiences. San Francisco and mountains of Telluride, Colorado are the settings for the story. Markun's descriptive writing make you feel you are there and part of the action. The concept of social entrepreneurs and companies helping others with their profits is intriguing. I do not hesitate to recommend this book for those who like an exciting read. I received a copy from Pump up Your Book, for review as part of a blog tour. All opinions are mine and I give it 5 stars.
