The main character and the action reminded me of Jason Bourne, but a less intense and watered-down version. This story is short, only 132 locations, and it's filled with quick action. There's not a lot of complicated story here, but it was an interesting read and different from what I usually go for. I just think this story needs a bit more- more grittiness, more of those in your face moments of danger, more of that feeling of gripping the reader and not letting go. For me, the game was over too soon, and what was there just didn't pull me in all the way.
This variation on the old theme doesn't get enough time to unfold or to build a characterization and as a result, there really aren't any surprises and the reader doesn't get enough time to identify with the protagonist. It reads a lot more like the summary of a potential action movie or novel than like a real story. The obstacles are overcome so quickly that there's no time for the classic roller coaster of suspense from the first realization that things are not as they seem to the first very specific threat and his response to variations on the threats and responses.
The descriptions and sense of location are strong and it's decent writing, just not great story-telling.
The book itself is littered with spelling mistakes which is disappointing.
Would I read another by the same author - maybe.
Steve West signs on to participate in a project he thinks is to create a game only to discover the bullets being shot at him are real. He quickly turns the tables from being the prey to the hunter.
If you are looking for a quick read that is action-packed, LETHAL FORCE is a good choice.
A mercenary thinks he is agreeing to a 5 versus 1 simulated hunt to help with the programming of a new video game. When the hunt begins, he quickly finds out it is for real and must react quickly. In terms of getting a feel for how the author writes and the type of plot he favors, this is a good free story.
