I did not find this to be John's best effort. However, it is golf and if you enjoy golf you will enjoy the inside knowledge that he brings to the game.
This book had the makings of an excellent plot. Unfortunately it developed very quickly and then stopped. The book is slow because it is nothing but casual conversation, much is the main character talking to himself. The ending is very abrupt and did not carry the suspense through as it could have.
Follett once again proves he is a great story teller. Not sure how much is true but assume most of it is, but it doesn't matter, it is just a great story.
In typical manner Baldacci keeps you thinking. The plot develops quickly and keeps developing. It is difficult to find a place to stop listening.
I read this book because the moving was about to hit the theaters. They changed the name of the book because the move gave it a different title. A Private Gentleman to The American. Need I say more! I actually thought the movie had a better ending.
I thought the book was slow. It is a nice story and more than likely has some truth about it in life during WWII but I thought it was a slow read.
Interesting what they went through to get home. I did feel the ending was abrupt. Would have been nice to know more
You get a true understanding of the wealth in which Kennedy was born which helps one to understand why he feels the upper 1/3 needs to provide for the lower 2/3's. The book gives you an understanding of how hard he worked for national health insurance and why, and how sad for him that he did not see it achieved, but probably better for the country. I can only say there must be a good reason that in his lifetime he could not obtain a national health insurance program. I am glad I read the book and think everyone, regardless of political persuasion will find it interesting.
This book takes off where the last one left off. Typical dark side to live that keeps you wondering through out the book. While the book is a bit typical because I have read the others it is still very good.
Scott presents events from his view point and does a good job of explaining some of the problems with politics today. I enjoyed the book and his insight. It is a good depiction of the events that took place during President G.W. Bush's years in office.
Perhaps because I just finished reading Dan Brown's Digital Fortress (DiVinci Code) I compared the two authors. Too much of the book is conversation between the characters and not on the plot. Enjoyable but does not keep you wondering what is happening.
