Leonardo Murphy, Russell F. Moran

You just launched a satellite into space without a rocket.

You took a $1,000 gift from your father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years after you read a book on stock trading.

You invented a computer algorithm that writes novels.
You’ve just entered Harvard University on a full scholarship after completing high school in two years.
Not bad for a 12-year-old kid.

Leonardo Murphy, age 12, changed his name from William to Leonardo to honor his hero, Leonardo da Vinci. Young Leonardo, with the second highest IQ ever recorded, just launched a satellite into orbit using a helium balloon and a small jet engine he bought on eBay. 
Among his many projects, he read books on stock trading. At age 10, he took a $1,000 gift from his father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years.

Realizing that he could easily become an insufferable obnoxious brat, he heeded the words of his beloved great-grandfather, Ezekiel Murphy, who was also a genius. “Don’t be an a…hole,” grandpa Ezekiel told him. Leonardo always recalled those words—and tried to obey them. 

Leonardo Murphy… where do I begin book lovers? Leonardo Murphy is undoubtedly a novel that should not be missed by anybody because the story that unfolds throughout it is genius, flawlessly written and wildly entertaining. When I read the premise of Leonardo Murphy, I knew instantly that it was a book I had to read as well as a book I would love, and this is thanks to the themes alluded to throughout the premise with a strong one being a fast-paced adventure. Adventure novels, in general, are my go-to read but I love even more when they feature more themes than just an adventure and so when I started to read Leonardo Murphy and learned that the book has this, I was thrilled, and it made me turn the pages even faster!

Leonardo Murphy is a fast-paced thriller that is haunting as well as thrilling, and the novel bewitched me from beginning to end, and I still don’t know how Russell F. Moran, the author of Leonardo Murphy managed to do this! I think it is a combination of his flawless literature and his fast-paced narrative that had twists and turns galore. It could be these two attributes and so much more but what I do know for sure is that Moran managed to keep me hooked and racing to the end thanks to his literature that was spiked with adrenaline from start to finish.

Leonardo Murphy is a compelling novel that will introduce readers to the protagonist of the story, Leonardo Murphy. Leonardo, however, wasn’t always called Leonardo, as he was born William but at age 12 he changes his name to Leonardo in honor of his inspiration Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo, the young protagonist of our novel, is a genius, so much so that at the age of 10 he turned $1,000 into nearly 2 million over a couple of years! The reader will follow him as he imagines and does crazy but incredibly smart things but the reader will also follow him as he eventually helps the government catch terrorist groups and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible Leonardo Murphy!

The story of Leonardo Murphy is an intriguing one and one that left me shocked at many points. I am not talking about a small amount of shock to book lovers but rather a massive shock because Leonardo Murphy provides a host of them and they are big ones! The twists and turns and the numerous shocking moments throughout the story thrilled me from start to finish and kept me entertained and turning the pages with haste. It is tough for an author to keep their readers engaged, especially when writing a thriller, so the fact that Moran was able to do this and so effortlessly shows us that he is an incredible author whose work should not be missed.

What unfolds throughout Leonardo Murphy is genuinely shocking, and I was always shocked and surprised because although I thought I knew where the book was going to go, it didn’t go that way and instead took a U-turn and it was exhilarating! The themes combined and laced throughout Leonardo Murphy perfectly compliment the atmosphere of the book and story; the reader will experience mystery, action, and thrilling moments and many more exceptional themes. As I read Leonardo Murphy, I found myself racing through it, turning the pages with haste thanks to the addictive nature.

Russel F. Moran is an author who has written a fantastic story and come up with a brilliant plot. Moran from the very start sets the tone of the novel; he lets his readers know that this is going to be a dark and atmospheric book thanks to his literature and wow was it! Moran is an exceptional writer because he grabs his readers attention from the start very quickly and keeps them engrossed until the end. There are no long build-ups that drag in Leonardo Murphy; instead, the reader will be thrown into the thick of the story quickly, and the result of this is exciting (and slightly terrifying!)

Overall Leonardo Murphy is a superb novel that has everything a reader would want in a story; it has a thrilling narrative, magnificent plot development and excellent characterization that will thrill and excite its readers so of course, I have to award this impressive piece of literature five stars!
