As is quoted in this well written piece..."The only difference between fiction and non-fiction is fiction must be plausible."
This story is so amazing that if taken to an editor and billed as the latest novel, the editor would pass saying it just isn't believable. This is an entertaining and enjoyable read.
Simply awful. I don't know who wrote this tripe, but certainly not one of my favorite authors. The real pity here is the fact that many aspects of the plot were set-ups for (what could've been) some really far out, interesting stuff.... the kind of things you'd expect from Koontz. Very disappointing.
I'm a Grisham fan, but this fell far short of the mark. The theme is a departure from the usual courtroom drama. It's clear that Mr. Grisham wanted to explore new territory. However, his love for all things Italian was clear after the second chapter; didn't need to wait for the author's comments at the end. Reading about a guy learning Italian for chapter after chapter is as much fun as....reading about a guy learning Italian. After chapter 4, I wanted to scream "I get it already, he’s learning Italian!" In addition, the story is left with so many 'loose ends' that I’m puzzled as to how this got by editors. Really disappointing book.
