Lee Child is my favorite writer. But in this one, you feel like you are the one trudging back and forth from Hope to Despair, the two towns in the novel. Many parts are not believable but mostly it is just boring.
Believable, fast-paced, predictable
John Rain, the main character. The others were less well formed.
No. He appeared to know his Japanese pronunciation but made a couple of English pronunciation mistakes. Otherwise, I thought he was very good.
When Rain is tailing his victims/suspects.
The CIA/black ops Viet Nam thing is a little hackneyed. I do feel like reading the next one though.
The book accurately portrayed the poverty and suffering. It was not a very happy book overall.
Sort of a surprise ending but I liked how it concluded.
Typical Sharpe but the story is a bit more exciting than previous ones.
Edge of your seat action. The character is from the Lincoln Lawyer which I am reading now. Enthralling.
