Great reading... Nov 17, 2003
About Face was a great book that was hard to put down, even for a minute.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! Jul 29, 2003
This book is, as I stated, excellent. The storyline good, the writing fabulous. Told in the distinctive voices of the two brothers, the book unfolds in a wonderfully unique way. About Face was recommended to me by someone on the internet. I was skeptical, but purchased it anyway. Am glad I did, because it is one solid read.

I couldn't put it down! I read the last half of the book in one sitting...it left me spellbound! The structure of alternating chapters from each of the two main character's perspective, is creatively done and pulls the reader in. As a result, the authors do an extraordinary job at building a connection between the characters and the reader, with vivid descriptions and tapping emotions that anyone who has siblings, will relate to emphatically. The story builds to an incredible conclusion that will leave you contemplating the realtionships of the characters for days. I highly recommend this book from these exceptionally talented authors...Bravo!!!
Great collaboration Jul 17, 2003
This is a terrific piece of writing between Levin and Weiss. The story never slows up, and the flow between the two writers is great; there is no on-again off-again feel as the writers interchange. The two authors create one smooth read. Highly suggested!!

About Face is an excellent book. Economically descriptive, the book is narrated via the distinctive voices of brothers Damion and Travis Face, two wonderful spirits that were easy to admire, feel sorry for, and at the same time, applaud in their efforts to escape a life many of us are lucky to have never known.
I would tell anyone interested in a fast-paced, beautiful story, to pick up a copy of this book.
