Fast paced, very entertaining
This is a good fast paced book. Nonstop bad luck the whole way through.
Yes it certainly did! This book moves right along starting from probably the first 10 minutes or so and doesn't stop the whole way through.
Surprisingly I did! For most of the story I did not, I found some of it to be a little far fetched. How much and how many things can happen to one man in a day? This guy just went from one situation to another. Like I said, it was entertaining. Anyway back to the question. The final scene did give me such a melancholy feeling, I was so surprised! I love when a book has a great ending...
If you're on the fence- get the book. It is a little different then the typical rainy day nothing to read, short on attention span book in that our hero isn't such a hero but a rather shady character himself and at times not too likable. He is shockingly redeemable giving it this memorable ending.
Near constant sunspense; great entertainment!
