This was my first Tom Clancy book and it will be my last. It was too long; it gave too much unnecessary information too far into the book. It also seemed like two different novels with a lot of events cramped into part 3. I got very little pleasure reading this book.
The ending; it felt incomplete and had unanswered questions. The epilogue which is intended to detail the fate of character was used instead as a tease to what's going to happen next. I prefer conclusions to my books when it involves the main character and was part of the main plot.
Also, the subplot about the main character's ward did nothing for the story except side track it, I was interested in the ward but it went no where, it had no real point to the story or none that I could see.
This is my second Lincoln Child book and have no intension of buying another.
The story was dull; it would have made a better short story. There was little suspense or action, unless you count the bedroom scenes. This was my first Stone Barrington novel and the author did little to help a newcomer grasp the character, it felt like I came into the movie theater late. Also, I still can't tell who the main character was, Stone, Holly, or the bad guys.
At first it was difficult telling the characters a part, the narrator did a poor job of distinguishing them, it's a good thing characters names were use often.
I do not recommend this book.
I liked the characters, and the story until it got too unbelievable; the last chapter gave me a headache trying to understand who was who and what each characters did or didn't do. It was unnecessarily convoluted.
This was my first Griffen book and I plan to give him another try. I think the main character (Charley) needs a little more work, sometimes he seem seasoned and other times I thought he was 22 years old.
Dick Hill's always give a 4 star performance.
Good solid novel which is what I've come to expect from Michael Connelly. It wasn't the most exciting of the Bosch novels I've read so far but it's definitley worth your time and money.
Enjoyed the story, and the showdown at the end had me clued to my seat. I really like Harry Bosch, and enjoyed learning how the character was coping first time out without a badge. Glad Len Carious and not Peter Jay Fernandez was the narrator.
What kind of ending was that...I don't like them in movies and I certainly don't like it in a book. The prelude seemed as though the editors made them but it in; I don't know, just unsatisfying.
An incident happened towards the end of the book where I expected to hear from a character since that character's narrative was pretty much throughout the book, but no, puff he was gone.
This was my first experience with Douglas Preston or Lincoln Child, can't say I'm interested in spending any more money on them.
