Promising but didn't deliver
on 20 October 2017
I started off this book quite enjoying it - a fast read, decent synopsis, but as the book went on, it started to irritate me intensely. Ok, it's fiction, so it can be far fetched, but some semblance of reality should be maintained, and this book had little. Too many implausible facts were simply brushed aside, the main one bring the basic fact of how could someone working in a bank explain how he suddenly might be debt free and living a life of luxury, and get away with it. It made the main character look totally stupid.
The narrative was fast paced to begin with, but later on became tedious, with long sentences and page long paragraphs of, mainly, unnecessary narrative. There was a juvenile slant to the writing too.
Even by half way through, I thought I might download books two and three of the trilogy - I'm glad I didn't because I would be seen to be endorsing the first book. Read it by all means, but don't expect an overly professional story.
