I love thrillers! Most are somewhat predictable but that's okay; they're still entertaining and worth the time spent. Every now and then one comes along that is very different, and that's what was so great about "The Informationist". Besides a great plot, it was fascinating to read about Africa in such detail. I just loved the book and couldn't put it down. Kudos to Taylor Stevens on her first novel! I'm looking forward to future books about Vanessa. And more Africa, please.
It's a nice little story, but it doesn't really classify as "Hard Case Crime". It was slow and there's no closure.
This book was excellent! I haven't read Stephen King in a while, although I've always been a fan. He just gets so wordy and goes on and on and on at times. Well, I didn't feel that way about this book at all. I was 9 years old when JFK was killed, and it had a huge impact on me. Fast forward 40 years, and I had a chance to visit Dealey Plaza and the Book Depository, etc. Nothing had changed from what I'd seen in the old black and white clips. I could really imagine being there on 11/22/63. Well, the same thing happened reading this book. I thought King did a great job of describing life in the late 50's/early 60's and it brought back so many memories. When I finished the book, I was sad it was over. My husband is listening to it now and enjoying it also.
