Boy Nobody was an epic, fast-paced and thrilling story. The book went through, mystery, history, secrets and bad-ass fighting. Allen did an awesome job at creating up this world filled with action, mysteries and surprises that will blow your head off.
When I first saw this on GoodReads, I thought "oh it sounds interesting, let's give it a try", but this book wasn't just interesting, it was AMAZEBALL AWESOME!! I mean, who can chase after a gang of three, killed two of them while holding a drunk girl in his arms? Boy Nobody can!!
When I first bought this book, I left it for a while and now I just want to slap myself for leaving it for so long!! I couldn't help but get pulled in every step that Boy Nobody took, every word pulled me in like I was trapped in a trance.
Boy Nobody has no name, that is because he is after all "Boy Nobody". When he gets a new assignment, he meets a girl. A girl that makes him think, feel and remember. I was literally jumping up and down on my butt as I read this book. It was just so thrilling. In every fight scene my leg would twitch or my fingers just couldn't stop tapping. I felt like it was happening right there before me.
There was a tiny romance part in this book, but it didn't take over the whole story. It was a change of scene for me since I'm a big sucker for bad-ass romance, but it was a good change. Boy Nobody just took everything out of my mind, only focusing on him and his assignment.
The ending took a HUGE turn. I was like "WHAT THE HELL??" and "How is the second book going to continue?". And yes, you heard it right, there is going to be a second book. AHH!! I was completely surprised by the ending. It just slapped me in the face and I was like "I WANT MORE!!". How can you survive after an ending like that?
Allen did an amazing job creating Boy Nobody's world up. I'm not going to tell you what Boy Nobody's name is because it's a secret, so you will have to just buy it and read it yourself!! I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!
