I have not read/listened to much that is called "Thrillers". But I did enjoy a few this summer and thought that I might give some more a try. This book never caught me. There was just too much action and not enough character development. Maybe this is some people's cup of tea, but for a person new to this kind of fiction, it was a real disappointment.
I was intrigued by the sample for this book, I wanted to get to know the characters presented in that snippet. However, what interested me about the presented ways of one of the main characters never reappeared, it was a cleaver but not truly representative description. I did listen to the whole book, but at times I wondered why. These people were so self-absorbed, so selfish, so non-reflective about themselves, expect in the most painstakingly situational way that I wanted to shake them. I know enough people who can't get out of their own way, I don't want to spend my leisure time stuck listening to them as well. Not much here, if you want to understand what makes us most profoundly human.
