I was amazed at how good this book was for a first foray into fiction. It was an interesting story and generally well told. I thought the second half was much better written than the first. Some of the writing and metaphors in the first 1/2 seemed pretentious. It was as if he had conceived a great line and was using it whether it fit or not. The writing in the second 1/2 - especially the dialogue - seemed totally natural.
My biggest negative was that I hate it when an author has his character acquiring lots of info but that info its not shared with the reader until way down the road. I think this is something the author could address in his next book. I do not think the twists and turns of the plot would be hurt by being more forthcoming with plot info earlier on.
His protagonist, Rick, was not a character I could really relate to. But the way the book ended had me thirsting for another in the series.
Great job, Ritch. Give us more soon.
Twenty five thousand dollars to track down a document. Instructions to follow.
How hard can it be? Get to New York, get the document, get back out. Easy money, and certainly something he can handle, even if he did promise himself that he would NEVER go back to New York again. EVER.
With every step that Rick takes to find this elusive document, he discovers more about himself, and about a past that he thought he had buried deeply in the bottom of a bottle. And the closer he comes to uncovering the truth about the document he is seeking, the closer he comes to losing his life, until it finally becomes an all out battle for his life, and his sanity.
This is a hard-boiled style thriller that has something for everyone. A very enjoyable read.
Wallace, a lawyer who has forgotten his past, and finds he has a part in a situation which he is investigating, must figure out if he is uncovering a conspiracy or playing a part in one. And the plot lets itself get discovered slowly which makes the reading all the more worthwhile.
"The Big Empty" scores on all points - it's worth more than a buck for the Kindle version, and the paperback would be worthy of a place on the shelf. The writing is clear and free of troubling syntax errors, and the characters are believable.
The Big Empty Delivers! Just when you think you have figured it out, you find yourself slowly cranked up for a series of roller-coaster rides. It's a great journey through the anatomy of power which truly shapes and dominates the greatest city in the world.
Loads of plot twists and surprises.
