This is an amazing book. Frank's naration is fantastic. I was with him the whole time, he drew me in and held me there, by his side, through it all. Thank you Stephen and thank you Frank.
Great characters, good writing, but the 2 hour recap of "The Hostage" really wasn't necessary. Also I don't think this will spoil anything but in the Hostage the Peugot was powder blue, not black. I guess maybe that's what erks me about the recap...it wasn't exactly accurate. Other than that it's a pretty good book.
This is well written, i guess. I am only 1/2 way through, not sure I'll finish it. The stories build up fine but are unbelievably anti-climactic. I have no expaination as Girsham is obviously a great writer, but these stories end, oddly, abruptly after a long winded, pointless conclusion. If this was a single book I would hope it got better, but as it is short stories and the 1st 4hours and 54 minutes has been less than inspiring, I can't see myself making it to the end. Sorry John, not your best work.
