The Colorado Mountains

I personally loved the book. All the events, the actions, the robberies and the catastrophes make it so much better, that you can never get bored while reading it. I will also wach the series on ZDF, because I really want to see if something has been changed or if they kept the Story in original. I would not recommend the book just for teenagers, I recommend this book to everybody, no matter if it's a boy or a girl, a young man or an older woman, this book will be very very interesting.

My opinion

Do I recommend this book to teenagers?
