This topic reminds me of the time I read a book called Two Heroes, which is about a policeman fighting against gangsters.
It’s such a page-turner, I mean, after I read the first chapter, it’s just impossible to put it down. I finished reading it in one sitting. It’s fair to say, it turned hours into seconds.
It basically tells a story between a psychologist Kris and a policeman Tony. The criminal forced the psychologist to steal a diamond for him, ‘cause his wife was taken hostage. The policeman found out the truth, and he offered to help the psychologist, you know, to save his wife. During the whole process, they encountered countless difficulties and dangerous situations.
The description in the book is so vivid that I could actually picture the fight scene in my head. And I have to say, the author of the book is really brilliant, he left lots of suspense that constantly keeps readers excited and want to read more about what would happen next. / The plots are full of twists and turns, and it’s like every 10 pages, something unexpected would happen, and you see, that's what makes this book so exciting.
Well, just like all the other books about justice versus evil, the policeman and the psychologist killed the boss of those criminals, and successfully rescued Tony’s wife. However, Tony died in the fight with the villain, which is kind of sad.
So, you see, the whole book is really thrilling.

The special effects of the fight scenes are so real. I would say the TV show is well produced. I heard they just shoot most of the scenes in front of a green screen, but what we see on TV, like the forest, the skyscrapers, the mountains that are covered with ice and snow are just so real.
Plus, the plots are full of twists and turns, and it’s like every 10 minutes, something unexpected would happen. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I mean, I just wanted to see what would happen next.
