Although the idea of a solution to the many Kennedy assassination theories is intriguing, the story took forever to develop with long periods without the usual Swagger action. I liked it ultimately, but had I known how long it was going to take to get to the final solution, I probably would have passed on this one and listened to something more fast-paced.
Yes, definitely. Overall the Bob Lee Swagger novels are very satisfying.
Bob Lee, of course. His Russian buddy was a close second.
I read somewhere when I was younger that Proust's Remembrance of Things Past was perhaps the greatest novel ever written. I never did read it and decided that now was the time to start with the first volume.
Thank God I never got around to reading it. Had I done so I may have given up reading entirely, thinking if this is the greatest novel I don't want to read ever again.
It is narrated by a neurotic Mama's boy who recalls a tale of an even more neurotic family acquaintance. I was bored to tears. If there is a point to this endless tale, it certainly escaped me.
Don't waste your time or money with this turkey.
A FOLLOW-UP TO PILLARS OF THE EARTH, THIS BOOK IS AS WELL-WRITTEN AND PLOT-DRIVEN AS ANY DICKENS NOVEL. RICH WITH CHARACTERS AND PLOT TWISTS, IT IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ IN YEARS.
