It is possible that I expected too much from this author, or maybe I just picked a wrong book out of this series to start with. I have never read any of the books by this author, however with all the buzz around the Tom Cruise movie, I was intrigued and started thread the reviews of the Jack Reacher series and they were very impressive, so I decided to try out with this book. I was not as impressed. The story was ok, the main character was not in anyway intriguing or even very interesting. After reading all the wonderful reviews about this character I expected more.
I am not sure that I would want to go back and read any of the other Jack a reacher books. It is unfortunate, as I was really looking forward to discovering a new series of books that would keep me interested...
Bought this based on the reviews but this was nothing I execred just not my cup of tea.
I found this book boring. I think this is one of the very few I did not bother to finish. I did not find the historic parts of the book all that interesting and the mystery part was not very interesting. The characters were not at all likeable. Don't waist your credits on this one.
I usually do not like Patterson's books, they tend to be without much substance, however in this case I was pleasantly surprised. The story was interesting, the characters engaging.
It took me a while to get engaged in this book, and I think that was Grisham's intent not to reveal all the details of the plot. First part of the book is all about Malcolm Bannister state of affairs - he is a lawyer in prison on racketeering charges. He is busy planning on how to get him self out of his current predicament. Second part of the book is how he plans and executed his revenge scheme. It is a much better book by Grisham then his other recent attempts, but oils does not compare to his earlier work.
I am a big fan of Mitch Rapp series. The last two books with young Mitch Rapp are excellent. It seems that Flynn has been reenergized with the new take on Rapp, going back to Rapp beginnings. This second installment was particularly good. The suspense and pace of the book has been breathtaking. I listen to the books while I walk my dogs, with this book I found I could not wait to go for the next walk.The book brings back several characters from the first book, as well as added political intrigue.
Guidall is fantastic as usual.
This installment in Mitch Rapp series takes us back to the beginning - how Mitch Rapp became Mitch Rapp.
Story line was interesting, enough action to keep you in the edge of your seat.
This was unfortunate. I love Nelson DeMille and especially John Corey books. This one was not one of his best works. The wisecracking John Corey was just ways too much, the story was too long at some point I was just no longer interested in the story, and tired of wise cracks.
I waited with great anticipation for this book and was very disappointed. I hope Mr. DeMille figures out what went wrong with this book and does not make the same mistake in the next one.
Scott Brick is great as always, but even he could not keep me interested in this book.
I read a number of books by Connelly and my favorites are with Mickey Haller. The story lines are usually interesting but what I enjoy the most are the characters - Mickey is a likable character and Connelly makes sure that there is growth and change with each book he writes. This makes the books more interesting, not just the "who done it", but the character growth in each book. The story it self is set against the current foreclosure landscape - making it current and relevant to today's headline stories. The woman accused of the murder is not a likable character, but does that mean she committed murder?
If you are a fan of Lincoln Lawyer - you will like this book.
He was not my favorite, but it did not distract from the story
So I picked up this book, after it was mentioned on a few TV shows. This was my first books by Gillian Flynn.
I was not impressed with the first part of the book, it dragged a bit. The book is written from two different perspectives - the wife, who suddenly disappears and the reader is introduced to her story through her diary, and her husband who is suspected in her disappearance. I did not like either character. I was about to forget struggling through this book and the came book 2 and everything changed. A twist in the story I did not anticipate. There will be no spoilers in this review.
This was an interesting study of the psychopathy and the relationships they form. I raced through the rest of the book and found it interesting but disappointing. It did seem like the author just run out of ideas. Part three of the book was rushed, the ending unsatisfying.
I am not sure that I would pick up another book by this author.
No. I disliked the narrators. In the beginning of the book I had hard time telling the two narrators apart.
