Tripwire, Lee Child
Good work, Lee, but I need to find some just slightly better books.
Comment parler des livres que l'on n'a pas lus ?, Pierre Bayard
The Satanic Verses, Salman Rushdie
I wish I could say I liked its comedy, its impertinence and its sexy girls, but it's hard to "like" a book that rent international diplomatic relations; and besides, it's just a little biological bit too gross.
Die Trying, Lee Child
Okay, we are clearly dealing with exciting, well-told stories, but in every one the bad guy gets shot in the head without knowing who killed him.
These are good revenge stories, but they are missing the watch-the-big-guy-fall pieces that make books like A Man in Full or Le Comte de Monte Cristo so satisfying.
