1.0 out of 5 stars Slow, boring, predictable., 20 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Burning Wire: Lincoln Rhyme Book 9 (Hardcover)
Although a big fan of Deaver's Rhyme books I have to warn you, this one is dreadful. Slow plodding plot and the characters have become so one dimensional. Suspenseful chapter endings no longer intrigue as you just KNOW that Rhyme will have figured it out and send a SWAT team (which in Deaver land are instantly available) to stop the baddy in his tracks. Time he stopped churning these out and write something different.

Couldnt agree with you more, i found the book tedious, hard going and quite frankly boring, in fact i havent even finished reading it, a rarity for me, as i usually stick with a book even when not impressed, but this is just too much like hard work - very disapointed with this book

My comments exactly.... And I havent finished it either. Would have thought with a title like that, the book would have been Electrifying!!!

Hmmmm... not sure now whether to even bother with this one. The last four Deaver's I read - Twelfth Card, Cold Moon, Sleeping Doll and Broken Window - were all let downs compared to his earlier stuff.

Eight years now since his last decent one, 'The Vanished Man'.

Totally agree!

I finally read it... complete drivel and one of the hardest books I've ever read - as in taking ages to finish, it's so bloody dull!
