Thirst No. 1 by Christopher Pike

Thirst No. 1 is a book for all kinds of readers. It is based on a young, well actually old, woman and her life. The book was written by a male author but has outstanding writing style from a woman’s point of view. Thirst is action packed but also a love story of sorts. Throughout the book, the main character, Sita, is faced with the changing times, danger, and peoples’ true intentions. She meets some interesting people that are not good and some that she feels for deeply. Sita faces large amounts of police forces in excruciatingly tight situations. There is blood and love, lust and age, fighting and seducing, as well as major deception; Sita even covers religion. Sita sucks her readers into her story and doesn’t let go, showing them her true self and the side that she wants others to see. Sita,her friends, and her foes, must fight to see who can make it to the end of time. Who will succeed in this story of survival of the fittest? Thirst kept me guessing and was constantly climaxing, with little room for breakage. Any reader looking for a good book will enjoy this book.
