    12. from Murphy s Library murphyslibrary When I started reading this book I felt like watching a movie with Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie playing the main character The first chapter gave the story a great basis, a thing that most action books don t have Normally an action book starts confusing as hell, but this one gives us a even if limited and not to the center plot good knowledge of what was going on.I like Fox Differently from some action s main characters, he was given a little humanity Authors [...]

    22. My rating is really a 3.5, but that s not a criticism.This is an spy action suspenseful thriller with some science or maybe SF thrown in It s not a genre I generally read not sure it s one I ve ever read before, in fact Don t think it s going to get me to start reading a ton of action thrillers now but I enjoyed this ride.The story moves along quickly and is an easy read I took a while to read it because of other pulls on my time, not due to the book Our hero is a super b spy type and very lika [...]

    24. This book for me, was just OK I think it would be a great read for anyone looking for an action story, but for me it fell a little flat on the character connection From paragraph one, the story is already in full action mode and there is no opportunity to get to know the characters at all It took a good hundred pages or so to feel anything for the main character, Fox For me, that hurt the story a little Don t get me wrong The negatives in this book are far fewer than the positives.For me the neg [...]


    25.
