I don't know why I found this so hard to follow and keep hooked into but I suspect it's the lack of focus on the main character. There is a great crime writer in there somewhere but this book was very average. The story flits around from so many perspectives it's hard to build a bond with the lead character.
I may give the author a second chance.
I love this author and this is my favorite book so far, I cannot wait for the next one. The ending was a surprise and perfectly hidden. A real gem.
The story started out well, my interest was peeked but within a few chapters all the tension and anticipation had dissipated. In the end I simply gave up, lost in too many new characters whom I really didn't care about.
You lost me....
But Joel took a perfectly good story and two thirds of the way in dumped a load of religious weirdness on me. Having now googled the author I guess I should blame myself, I assumed it was a regular thriller not an evangelical propaganda text.
Fundies......i just don't get them.
This book has just a little too much swagger and takes the usually arrogant Reacher into almost comic book action. I suggest more plot and development less waffle. This is my least favorite Reacher novel and I have bought them all.
A well paced book, totally addictive and very hard to put down. I hope the sequel comes out soon. One of my favorite crime novels of they year.
Daniel Silver really excels with this book, I think it's the best book I have heard this year. The narration helps, George is like honey to the ears. A beautifully balanced story full of intrigue, twists and turns. A must for thriller / spy fans.
As a guitarist and fan of rock I was hoping for a little more detail and grit. I don't care about the reasons Tony got divorced or every drug fueled party but either he has had a quiet life of he denied us the details. It's a hard task to compete with Clapton or Keef's recent books but there must have been more....
Tony is what we all thought him to be, a very decent humble guy.
Narration is a bit home made....which it kinda was.
Another great adventure, the kids are nearly as badass as the parents now. I look forward to the next installment. I hope we get back to New Orleans and more sedate cerebral mystery.
I tried and gave up......I tried very hard to believe in the characters but I simply found myself wanting to find a better book.
One of my all time favorite authors - Adrian grabs me every time. The narration is perfect and I find it hard to stop listening.
