Overall, a good, entertaining read- one that will keep your attention even when your brain wants to shut off; and especially appropriate for travelers too weary for heady reading, and too uncomfortable to nap between destinations- such readers will be able to relate to the main character.
Again, I appreciated how the author went inside his characters to their thought processes and feelings. At that he did a very good job - especially for a beginning author.
The negative comes in the way of our hero healing so quickly. Something authors like Clive Cussler repeatedly use but it takes a bit of the 'believable' out of the story. Secondly, the author develops a reason for our hero doing what he is doing along the way verses giving us a solid reason in the beginning of the book which would have helped frame the hero's actions through the read. For me it would be a 5 star novel if it was complete in and of itself but that's just me. Give it a whirl. I'm sure you will be caught up in it.
-- First the cons: There needs to be an editor. The standard protocol for conversations in writing were completely ignored. At one point I wondered if it was just because of being digital that there were no paragraph breaks when the speakers changed, ... back and forth, back and forth... over and over all in one paragraph. Other e-books don't have this problem, and it never changed. This drove me nuts.
--For really smart people (as is suggested), the characters in this story make some really air head decisions.
--There is possibly some use for his collaboration with a female for a little more perspective on how the women in the book are acting, feeling, thinking and speaking. I'm not impressed with Emily. Collins mother the same. I don't know why... but so much just doesn't ring true.
--And last, the story bounced around a bit with something missing in the transitions.
For the Pros... I actually enjoyed this book other than twitching at the above stuff. For a first time author I think he could really do well with some good editors. It kept me interested, it was hard to put down, and I found myself at the end wondering "what next?" I see that there will be 3 books in this series, and I find that I actually want to see Collin to the end with this. I did like the 'end of the book Collin' much better than the one at the beginning. There are some secrets that we hope are eventually explained... and of course we hope he comes out of this with his life, faith and good name in tact... or repaired.
One more thing... thank you so much for zero f-bombs. Thank you, thank you, thank you! There is no place for it in good literature.
Three stars isn't negative, it just hasn't yet earn 4 or 5 stars.
