3.0 out of 5 stars Jury still out, 26 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watchlist: a Serial Thriller (Hardcover)
Hmmm, the book is listed as being written by Jeffrey Deaver who's an author I greatly admire. It turns out that there are two, interconnected stories in the book with around two dozen writers (none of whom I've ever heard of 'cept Deaver himself, of course), each writing one chapter. I really can't make up my mind about this. Did I enjoy it or did I not? I suppose I did but some of the writing left a lot to be desired. One writer has three 'villains' "shot in the face" - one after the other. One has two assassins destroyed by a musician with a violin! Unbelievable!! Some of the storytelling had me raising my eyes to the heavens to enlist help in believing what was happening. Even Deaver's own chapters were a bit tame for him. Readable but not thoroughly enjoyable.
Of course on must also admire the attempts of our American cousins to change the English language. CAPITOL letters indeed.
