Under the Neon Sky by Jay Rankin Ebook Giveaway and Review

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Under The Neon Sky is a gripping, true story about a Las Vegas Doorman who worked the graveyard shift at one of the major hotels on the Strip. The sights, smells, and page popping characters are unforgettable as we take a journey that will tramsform how we used to envision the city that never sleeps. We watch as this doorman begins to emotionally break and wonder if he will become broken seeing his friends, his wife, hotel guests, and himself cross too many boundries in this riveting, page turning story.

Goodreads Summary

When one works a graveyard shift one has the chance to experience normal events in a very different way as well as get to know the city of Las Vegas with a different perspective.  The reader will love the integrated bits of Las Vegas history, told in a way that elevates Las Vegas history from dry to exciting.  The author details the story very well, the reader will not be confused and the author's points will come across clearly. 

This book is a quick read, the reader may finish it in one or two days.  The author's life story will be very interesting to the reader, it will be hard to put this book down.  The events were fast-paced, there weren't many slow areas in the plot.  The author has the ability to allow the reader to look through his eyes and see Las Vegas as he views the city.  At times, reading about the author's life and acknowledging that certain events actually happened can make it a bit of a difficult read for readers who don't like anything sad or remotely depressing in books.  Overall, the book was certainly intriguing and recommended to adult readers.
