Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing to you to express my great appreciation for the latest book which you have released called the Dawn of the Wild.

I have found the book to be fascinating and stimulating at the same time. It has been a while since I had read a novel of such caliber of writing that I found myself writing this letter to you.

Your novel has changed my perspective on many things and has broadened my view on a lot of things as well.

Again, I would just like to express my deepest thanks that you created this literary wonder which has changed my life for the better.

I wish you all the best.
