This book is good for a "brainless distraction." The story line was cheesey and unbelievable. I rank it right up there with a plot line in a typical porno. It had a lot of sex and erotic details that seems to have been written by someone completely out of touch with women. Sure...a good looking, wealthy, power-crazy sadist falls for a ditsy, 22 year old virgin who has never been attracted to anyone before and who has an orgasms every time Christian touches her...I believe that. But like I said, it is a brainless distraction. I will not be getting the other ones in the series.
Although I am a fan of Mr. Crouch's work, I was so disappointed with this book. It was almost as if he was rushing to meet a deadline. Many of the scenes were predictable and repetitious. But the most annoying thing was that there were several times in the book where it was abundantly clear that he had not done the research to make the scenes play out in a realistic manner. In addition, I did not care for the characters. They weren't very bright or even mildly likable. I found myself wishing they would just get killed off so new characters could be introduced. If you would like a really great mystery by Mr. Crouch, you are better of with the "Wayward Pines" series.
This was a great story with lots of terrific, historically acurate detail! I hated for the story to end!
Not only was the story a real "page turner," the narrator did a fantastic job. I really enjoyed how he was able to bring out all of the distinct personalities of the characters!
I would have loved to have heard more on "Big Jim" at the end. It was truly a great book! I hated to see it end!
