Archer was mired in guilt and in constant emotional turmoil. She was a little horrible, but who could blame her? Not me. Conner was...oh, Conner was just marvellous. He was one of the best characters I've come across lately. I loved him. He sooo deserved to be happy. There were also a whole host of small-time side characters who all had an important role to play and you couldn't help but like them.
The above sentence, with the movie/book references in it, would fit nicely into the Tell Me When It Hurts. There are a lot of them in the book. It's a game the characters play, and by extension so does the reader. It was kind of fun and I suspect that there were even more than I was able to catch.
The book did drag a bit in the middle. It wasn't that nothing happened, in fact a few small but important things occurred. It was just that for a little while there it became a string of mundane occurrences, Christmas shopping, getting the mail, walking the dogs, etc. I know that this was sort of the point. The characters were falling into a life together, but I'm used to a bit more action and was relieved when things picked back up.
The book would definitely appeal to fans of Nicholas Evans more than those of Robert Ludlam, but I recommend it for anyone who likes a story about the resilience of the human spirit and overcoming personal tragedy.
There is lots of discussion of nature, the countryside, camping, dogs, horses, farms, ranches, sheep, mountains etc.
There is also a fair bit of cheesy romance, although I like that the heroine is somewhat non-standard in her approach to relationships until the end.
There is very little discussion of contract killing, apart from references to it as something she does on the side for a shady revenge-motivated organisation and the inclusion of one 'job' she carries out toward the end.
It's basically a cheesy romance with animals, and if that's your thing, then this is the holiday read for you. 3/5 stars.
Archer's secret "occupation" raises moral issues to ponder. Can what she does ever be considered right? I don't have a problem believing that there might be a group which does what her group does - after all, who knows? I do find it hard to believe that none of the few people who know what she does on her mysterious journeys, seem to have any qualms about it.
I had to keep going back to it, to follow the twists and turns and know what was going to happen.
I recommend this book as an enjoyable read.
The story is a bit of a romance but also has a hint of crime and conspiracy theorys but over all a really good read that makes you feel for the characters and want to get to know them and there individual stories.
Give it a shot is all i can say, you will love it or hate it (the marmite of books!!)
I went through a rollercoaster of emotions ,tears ,laughter ,shock and more tears ! Good film reference s by the way very impressed x
