The Returned was an Excellent read. In the beginning it seemed like the Oregon Trail with a twist. The book has you wanting to read more with every turn of the page. You are wondering what will happen next. Wondering what twist is next. I like adventure books and this book just blew the cap off. I highly recommend this book. It’s a book that can be re-read over and over again. Also hard to put down. Dr. Brown is an excellent author and I [sic] will definitely read more books published by him.
