Over all a good read, I certainly hope it will be continued as I would like to read more.
I would recommend this book, especially to men who would probably like the Alpha Male hero.
However, A few of the sideline characters seemed to be wooden, and the first few pages seemed to be stiff and self conscious, making it slightly difficult to become fully lost in the story, there were too many references to Dallas making it seem slightly `Mary Sue-ish". (I get that it is necessary to provide setting, but it is better to slip it in sideways to be inferred rather than spoon feeding it to reader. But then, that is my highly subjective opinion.)
The overwhelming wealth was off putting, he has his own plane and offhandedly buys a burger ?
It did seem as if he was inserting acquaintances into the side characters, I am willing to bet he has a good buddy who is an AF pilot, an old buddy from SMU, ETC.
He reacts oddly under pressure, if he is going to react in such an atypical fashion it would be necessary to provide a solid background to justify it, explain the quirk, otherwise it is baffling and again pulls the reader out of the book to try and figure out WHY someone would act that way.
A good edit could have tightened this up a bit , but still, I have read MUCH worse.
Now, as much as I enjoyed it, there were two things I found slightly off-putting. First, the way Buck handles all of his crises...instead of dealing with these things head on, the way a CEO normally would, he would elect to exercise/get a massage/eat/and take a nap. Had a hard time believing that tactic.
The other minor annoyance (and I say this half-jokingly) was that EVERY SINGLE MEAL of each day was described in great detail! Perhaps the author is (or aspires to be) a chef, but he could have eliminated about 20 pages if the in-depth food descriptions were omitted, or at least truncated. It's a mystery, not a cookbook! ;)
I loved the ending, the way it all wrapped up nicely, although it went by a little too quickly. But despite my miniscule misgivings, I still felt it deserved 5 stars, and would highly recommend this book. Looking forward to reading the next one, Thin Places (Hawaii)!
I wish the bigger events were elaborated on more. I don't want to give them away for the future readers, so I'll just say that when they happened, it was sudden & caught me by surprise. I would like to be able to visualize them more.
I was surprised at the amount of grammatical errors. I was involved in the storyline, so it didn't become that distracting & was still a breezy read.
Ben Coleman is a real storyteller with well thought characters that you care about. He writes with pace, honesty, and in full color. Thin Places teases with the promise of becoming a classic series that will entertain and satisfy for many long flights, sunny poolside afternoons, and sleepless nights to come.
I could see the main characters continue in a sequel or two with the possibility for several good side stories to be full works on their own.
Keep writing, looking forward to more adventures with Buck!
