More plot development but it seems all over the place. For a great , the best, assassin she seems too moody and desperate. That said the magic is reasonable but not as well defined and consistent. Will have to wait and see what develops in the next book.
Really intriguing story with more to come. He is a master story teller and it looks like the horror is coming in the next volume. All the Mr Mercedes crowd are there with wonderful interconnections and a lot of intertextuality that I need to follow up. It was interesting to read this one having used Audible for Mr Mercedes. Gave the characters more of a voice. Enjoy its good!
I don’t know if I liked this or not. Seemed more like a screenplay than a piece of literature. There are some funny bits but very American based humour and your never quite sure if the author is writing a novel or some sort of fan fiction or soapie. Will consider another but not immediately which I suppose gives you an indicator of interest generation. Give her a go if you like seeing the girl win occasionally against the bully boys.
Pretty average really, though maybe it will get better in sequels. If you don’t read the Reacher books you will wonder what the fuss is all about. Read them first or at least the first few. The concept is s good one but just not tightly delivered.
