Skywalker Gets Good Review for New Novel, ‘Chicago Pits’ (2018)
Bill Walker, author of the popular Skywalker hiking series on the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails has received a strong critical review for his new novel, Chicago Pits (2018). The review was from the respected Midwest Book Review which is selective about books it reviews for independent authors. The book is written in the vein of The Bonfire of the Vanities, the Wall Street satire authored by the late Tom Wolfe.
Critique: A saga of a novel, “Chicago Pits” is a solidly written and engagingly entertaining read by an author with a genuine flair for narrative driven and extended storytelling. Very highly recommended.
