I rarely give up on a book but this one beat me. The style is odd, you never feel part of the story, it's like someone giving a briefing.
The Plot is ripped out of a horrible UK child abduction/killing from a few years ago, a blatant copy from the headlines. The true story was extremely sad and unpleasant and why anyone would wish to rip it off for cash is beyond me. The author can do better.
I really enjoyed the first two books then this one came along and boom....thud...splat! Every single character is angry, bitter and the narrator makes them all sound like little point brats. I cannot imagine the author actually believes everyone in the serious crimes squad actually speaks to each other like this let alone to the public.
Weaker plot than previous books too means that it's bye bye Maeve....I hardly knew thee.
The book is very pedestrian, much over explanation and spoon feeding. My biggest gripe was just when we finally start getting to a finale it turns all religious. I did not realize it was an end of times freak show, I want a refund. Avoid.
Not as dramatic as the first book but equally enjoyable. I enjoy the detail and character development very much. This is becoming one of my favorite series.
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.
