"This amazing novel....has riveting mystery, politics of just about every shade, and thrills on almost every page. . . .This is going to be the BIG BOOK of 2009." - (Ken Bruen, author of The Guards and Once Were Cops)
Billed as novel of suspense. What a joke. No suspense. No interest. Boring. Tedious. Nothing happens. Tired of 2 and 3 word sentences.
I agree with a previous reviewer - not many people to like in the book. That being said, it is well written, thought provoking and gets better as it goes. Worth sticking with.
is how I find the story of this book. I found it hard to identify with the 'heroine'...and yes, I realize it is because we come from different backgrounds and perhaps this is what the author was trying to get at. But I can't enjoy a book when I not only can't sympathize...I can't even empathize with the situation.
I could not begin to understand what motivated the protagonist, and the timeline seemed absurdly implausible. This was the worst book I've listened to in ages.
The story was far from original. There was no real mystery. The only suspense was why the author took such a tedious path of explaining the ending which was actually the first chapter. I only completed the "listening" because I thought that with all the good ratings, the best was yet to come.
This writer seems to have a very small vocabulary, all of it smut. I don't find this entertaining in any way and certainly not stimulating to the mind. If I'd taken this book from the library it would have gone back on about page 3.
It was very hard to get into the story. In some scenes, details don't match up with what's going on, which take away credibility. Overall, a very disappointing book that goes on and on.
