Xlibris Book Reviews: The Nude by Margaret Sisu

Fiction that keeps you guessing from start right up, quite literally, to the very…last…page.

The Nude by Xlibris author Margaret Sisu grabs your attention by the mere mention of the book’s title. The image tickles your fancy. If the author intended to entice the readers with the title alone, she has done a pretty nifty job. Even more so with what’s inside the covers.

“A masterful debut. An enthralling first novel,” Kirkus called it. Margaret further shared with the Xlibris Blog her enthusiasm and self-publishing success. The positive feedback dispelled her own writing demons.

“Writer’s Digest remarked, ‘This book was extremely well-written. The plot was fantastic.’ And Readerviews said, ‘[The Nude] is a perfect combination of romance and intrigue…Readers are sure to be surprised.’ It was even recommended on USAToday.com.”

The Xlibris Indie Author Roundup also came across this Amazon five-star review:

“For me, excellent fiction is not only credible but one that reaches out and grabs the reader and pulls one into every scene, so that without lines to read or roles to play, the reader, though invisible, is right there among the characters and in this way the reader is not even aware of turning pages but feels himself or herself right there living in the story and in the very soul of the characters.

This is how I felt reading “The Nude”, a well written novel by a skillful author who hails from my own home, Barbados. Those who read it will undoubtedly have the same experience as I did.

As one who loves the mystery and magic of language, I found myself repeating whole paragraphs over and over just to savor Margaret Sisu’s elegant choice of words. All in all, I found “The Nude” a beautiful work.”

And another one from blogcritics:

“The Nude is a perfect combination of romance and intrigue. The characters are multi-dimensional and very realistic. The attraction between Adam and Gwen is complex and exciting. As the story builds up to a huge climax, readers are sure to be surprised by what follows. Questions are answered with unexpected explanations. I enjoyed having the opportunity to be surprised by the truth. I think readers will really enjoy this novel.”

We hope Margaret’s bold attempt at writing and self-publishing leave you restless with creative inspiration that you can finally vent them on your manuscript.
