  • Thank you to author D. C. Alexander for this Kindle copy of Chasing the Monkey King. Also, thanks to for hosting the opportunity through the First Reads program.I really liked this one. Approaching 5-star. This book had a nice set of characters, nice pace throughout, nice flow, and I really liked the two main characters and their interactions together. Good friends, strong friendship, each fallible, good sense of humor - both giving and taking.A little more editing to clean up some errors (less [...]


  • Received this book through the Giveaway program. It was a slower read and, at times, I felt the author was trying to do a bit too much which made the actual plot suffer a bit. However, I enjoyed the dynamic between the main protagonists – produced a few smiles while I was reading. Would definitely read another book by this author.


  • ReviewThis book was difficult to put down. Started out fast and held my interest. Great development of the main characters and their friendship. The mystery was good. If recommend to read.


  • Action, adventure, humor! Sort of a spy/thriller/spoof, but all enjoyable.! A little slow in starting with a lot of exposition, but more than makes up for it after gaining speed! A true good read! Bookmprovided by .


  • I was so excited when I heard I had won this Giveaway book. It was suspenseful and a very good read from beginning to end. Good plot.


  • DNF at about 50%. My main issues with this book had to do with the pacing. It would have been much better as a novella or a short story. Even by about halfway through the book the real action hadn't quite gotten started and there was a LOT of telling and not a lot of showing. The mystery was fairly un-mysterious and also a little boring.I received this book through in exchange for an honest review.


  • Chasing the Monkey King was a slow burn for me.What I liked early on were the woes of the educated underpaid and stuffiness of Washington bureaucracy. Once the story moved to China about halfway through, I was more adjusted to the main duo and felt invested enough to finish reading in one sitting. Details won't be spoiled here, but I enjoyed how the yarn unraveled into an international plot. It's not a clichéd doomsday conspiracy, and that captivated me. I felt the ending lacked closure though. [...]
