    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    T.D. says: "Shakes you to your very core."
    "Depressing"

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Survivor?

    the story is unrealistic the characters are not believable, the whole approach of the story is based on creating a negative feeling from a depressed and suicidal person with a personality that is hardly realistic. The mobsters are science fiction characters planted in a country and environment that we can not recognize. The whole environment from the security officer in the bank and absent police force leaves a void in the scenario. The reactions of the teenage daughter, the wife or the wives boy friend, are just not believable, maybe the author has never had a wife or children? The cast, therefore the story, does not hold together.


    Has The Survivor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, there is no difficulty differentiating the characters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disapointment


    Any additional comments?

    Scot Bricks, has exaggerated the depressive character of the person by using a naration tone of a person who has abandoned all values and is in deep depressed shock, a lost and limp soul who does not have the energy to put the next foot forward once out of bed in the morning! this exacerbates the non believable aspect of the character whose actions are more that of a person with a strong and dinamic personality. This renders the main character week and despicable. Not the kind of character that you want to read about!
