Chiefly, the narrator. The way he changed voices just drove me nuts. The writing was at best; average.
None that I could see, did not finish it - just bored me.
Thought this would be a compelling book, based on what I had read about it. It was not. I still believe that there is more to this story, but I did not have the patience to go all the way through this title to learn more.
No - if you have even a passing knowledge of terrorism and investigative procedures you will be picking holes in this book the whole way through to the completely fanciful final hour of this book.
Davis has taken a few sketchy descriptions and gone about trying to confirm the case rather than looking at the whole case - a wonderful study in confirmation bias. She spends a long time on very tenuous links but no time looking at the case the prosecution put up.
Don't waste your time - go read Marc Sagemen and get a good feel for what drives home grown terrorism.
No, I will just avoid conspiracy books
First read by Jerry for me - a serviceable performance
I kept going thinking there must be more but it all built up to a truly farcical conclusion
If you like Glenn Beck and Infowars you will probably love this
This book is horribly written. Someone needs to take Mrs Davis' thesaurus away from her. Sometimes a car backfiring is just a car backfiring not "a miraculous cacophony of a thousand thunderclaps culminating in the blah, blah, blah. I couldn't finish the book. The information is interesting, but could have been covered in half the pages, or it might have made a nice piece of fiction based on fact.
