Overall, this was marred by one scene in particular that I *really* wish Badal had found some other way of achieving similar character development. Would be a spoiler to describe it, but suffice it to say that many females may hate that scene even more than I did. Other than the one scene - and he *did* attempt to make up for it by using it to further the characters - it really was an enjoyable, fairly quick read. I was 33% in and didn't realize I had been reading that long.
I did find the dialogue to be a bit unnatural or contrived. I also found more than an acceptable number of punctuation/spelling errors.
All in all, though, I recommend The Pythagorean Solution.
I became fully engrossed in the plot, the characters and the action. It has everything you want in an action packed thriller including shipwrecks, strong female characters and a well thought out main character and some of the nastiest villains I have ever come across.
I actually felt I was transported to Greece and I thoroughly recommend this book to those who enjoy fast paced thrillers.
