Standards expected from Chris Ryan too many swear words particularly
Starting with the c letter and too much repetitive phrases
A good character in Bald that gets down to the nitty gritty. No messing about.
Well done Chris
A sweeping statement, perhaps? Let’s examine my reasoning.
First up, why did I buy it? In this case I was travelling at short notice and without my trusty Kindle, so nothing at hand to read. I live in a country where finding English-language books is like stumbling over a five-carat diamond while walking in the park. In my desperation for something decent to while away a few hours, I discovered that a branch of a well-known French hypermarket nearby carried books in several languages. Their shelves groaned… no they didn’t, there were less than twenty titles in English, and once I had eliminated those I had previously read and those genres that do not appeal to me, I wasn’t exactly spoilt for choice – one book left. Now, seeing the author was Chris Ryan should have been a guarantee of a reasonable action thriller without too much to task the neurons. This was my first mistake.
Fans of this author can usually expect a solid thriller, technically correct, given the man’s experience, and entertaining. This ‘story’ doesn’t fall under that description.
In essence it’s a collection of four intense action scenes (over long in some cases) populated by one-dimensional characters, totally lacking in any convincing argument for their deeds. The storyline was paper-thin, no, almost translucent would be a better description, and only served to move the protagonist as quickly as possible from one episode of violence to the next. My second mistake was to keep reading with the ignorant hope of tripping over, not a diamond, but something that would make the book something less than an exercise in how not to write thrillers.
Well I finished it and felt ripped-off.Read more ›
